I like...

Incy Wincy for "I"! Hop on over there (I had to say 'hop'--she's growing frogs) and enjoy! Sam's little girl, Emma, is darling, especially in a pretty white dress her mommy is making for her! And Sam's also making a cool dress out of one of Emma's dad's t-shirts (yes, Sam says he told her it was okay!), which I think is a really clever idea!

Now, here's my Mother's Day Report: we all went out to dinner at our favorite restaurant, Catfish Annie's. We've been going there for about 25 years now. They've watched my kids grow up, and I can say the same for the family that runs the place. The little girl who used to help clear tables is now head waitress. It's not fancy--I don't do fancy. There's a fresh seafood counter on one side. The food is simple, but amazing. And reasonable! I got a twin lobster dinner with sides for less than $30, which is saying a lot for New York. 3 of my kids ordered scungilli--ugh. Scungilli, if you don't know, is a kind of snail.
My husband had softshell crab. My youngest had chicken. The older ones teased him about it, but Catfish Annie's makes amazing fried chicken, too. We really enjoyed ourselves. The lobster was luxurious (and I brought some home to make myself a lobster roll today!)--but the best part was having all my kids together for a meal. That doesn't happen often these days.

I hope you all had wonderful days yesterday, too!

Sounds like a perfect Mother's Day Dinner. We have a friend in Texas who took us to a little Catfish Place, that reminds me of the one you describe!! Sounds Yummy, w/o the "snails"

Happy Belated Mother's DAy
