Happy Mother’s Day and Giveaway Winners!

Happy Mother’s Day to all! I hope it was special. I can’t believe it was my fourth Mother’s Day already, I still feel like a new mom.
By now your little ones are probably tuckered out and fast asleep in bed–I know mine are! We tired them out tromping around Mount Royal, hunting the first wildflowers of the season. Hey, we had to work off our lobster lunch somehow. We found some flowers.

Oh, would you look at that! A lovely glass of chilled Mission Hill Pinot Blanc has just appeared at my elbow–it appears there’s still a few hours of pampering left for this mother! OK, I won’t keep you for long, but we have some winners to announce!
Did you forget? My giveaway ended last night and three lucky commenters are going to win a copy of “The Day My Baby Was Born” by LaNita McMeekan-Cates.

Ready? Thanks to selection by random.org our winners are…

Congratulations, Ladies!! Please contact me ASAP with your mailing addresses and we’ll get those books shipped out to you soon.
A big thank you to everyone who entered, and for your super sweet comments and words of congratulations. They mean so much. I wish I could sit down with each one of you over a cup of coffee and hear your birth stories!

Remember, if you still would like a copy of the birth stories collection, it is conveniently available to order on my sidebar!!

I leave you with these photos that keep cracking me up of Noah holding the lobsters we cooked up today. We dined in for Mother’s Day lunch, creating a vibrant spring warm lobster salad with poached rhubarb and fiddleheads. You must try this recipe, seriously.
Anyway, after much begging on my part, Noah got up the nerve to pick up first one and then two live lobsters. That is no easy feat for a three-year-old, I mean, those things thrash around something fierce and they are heavy–and slippery. For those of you who don’t know him, he may look like he is smiling, but these are expressions of sheer trepidation.

What an awesome kid. I’m one proud mama this Mother’s Day.
Good night all!
