Sentimental Sunday

Sunday, August 19, 2018
These are a few of her favorite things - I guess I am channeling my inner Sound of Music, but it is what came to mind when we gave a fun little goodie gift basket to our mom for her 90th birthday.
I know it doesn't seem like much, but she was thrilled, and at 90 years old she lacks for nothing, but rather would have us all together. The gift of time is priceless.

I found this crayon box at the store in the back to school section, and decorated it up with some of our retired Designer Paper.

I used the TREAT TIME Stamp Set and the PETITE TREATS FRAMELITS DIES.  Buy them as a BUNDLE and save 10%
Day 1 we did a little furniture shopping, keeping it a little light as mom cannot handle too much. She did great, but I am sure she slept really well that night!
Our sister, Lynette, came from Arizona so that we could all be together.
On Day 2 we went to see the Christopher Robin Movie. We all have a special love for Winnie the Pooh because Mom's oldest sister, Maxine, worked at Sears back when Winnie the Pooh was exclusive to Sears, and she was such a beloved aunt of ours.
We also had a late lunch at Culver's
Day 3 we had a family dinner. So great to have us all together. Mom is not eating great lately so we wanted to make a comfort meal, one that she made for us when we were growing up. Just a simple chicken casserole, but oh, so good!!
While we cooked, Mom entertained the pups

If you want to make this casserole for yourself, here is the recipe
Chicken Casserole
2 C dry elbow macaroni
Chicken, cooked & cubed (3-4 legs and thighs)
ó# Velveeta cheese or 12 slices American Cheese
1 onion chopped
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
2 C milk
Mix & Bake 350º for 1 ó hours

Of course, growing up we often found rabbit or squirrel instead of chicken because our dad was a big hunter, and it was a way to stretch the budget.
Don't forget about BONUS DAYS!
