Mother’s Day May 11, 2008

Posted by mom6 in Provo Ricks.

In honor of Mother’s Day, I give tribute to all who are mothers and who will become mothers. I am finally getting around to posting a few more pictures from our trip back east. We loved holding and playing with Elijah and Gabriel, who are growing so much and are so cute! Gabriel is on the left and Elijah on the right (of the picture).


Here is the cute poem they sent me for Mother’s Day:


Ode to Oma


Oh Oma, you met us when we were but small

We weighed but five pounds and were not very long

You heard us cry often and laugh not at all

Yet still you held us close, soothing us with song.

And fed us a bottle in the still of the night

We appreciate all that you did for us then

To have you for an Oma. What joy! What luck!

Without you in our lives things would not be right

We’ll give you our thanks when we see you again

For your service, your love and cute wooden ducks.


This was accompanied by a note about odes:

When we decided to write an ode, we did our research. Odes come in groups of ten lines with an ABABCDECDE rhyme scheme. Our ode follows this pattern and each line is exactly eleven syllables. We feel it compares favorably with the classic “Ode to a Grecian Urn,” especially since we are only five months old. 

Another picture in honor of the day: Cayelle with her mother, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers.

One last picture–Cayelle came to visit yesterday, and I was able to get this cute picture.


Have a grand day, one and all–we’re having the May birthday dinner here today. Tine’s 23rd birthday is tomorrow.
