Spent the week-end with Mama.....

Went to East Texas to spend the weekend with Mama and celebrate Mother's Day.  This is what we gave the ole' gal for Mother's Day! Sister Fannie made the basket cover for it...  Isn't this adorable??

We departed East Texas early this morning to South Dallas to visit the old home place of her grandmother and her home when she was a child.   Great Grandmother's home is no longer there but the empty lot is, AND it was beautiful... (Mama and Fannie below walking the lot) Already on the phone trying to locate the owner, we want to buy it for Mama!
Our final stop... The Stoneleigh Hotel, Mama had her first job there as a hairstylist.. 1957! It was a great day and to see Mama so happy remembering all her childhood memories, and sharing with us ... pretty cool stuff!!  We had a blast!
Hope you enjoyed your day!

I think that it's wonderful that you want to buy the lot for your mother! My dad was a builder and there are about 15 houses that we lived in when I was growing up. Of course, they were always for sale at the right price! I would love to be able to walk through some of them. Annie
