I had a great mother's day. I was woken up by my kids showering me with gifts that they had made in school. I got a green book mark from Monkey with a sweet card about how I make him blossom. A mug with flowers in it from Red and the smile that melted my heart as he gave it to me. GG gave me 2 cards she made and bowl with shells, and rocks with a purple flower and a lady bug card that said "roses are red, violets are blue, You are my mother, and I love you." They all gave me great big hugs and kisses and Peanut said, "Appy mommy day!" Then it was off to church. Red made me a necklace and Monkey made something too but he left it at church so I'll get it next week. We left after Sunday School to head to J's aunts house. We spent the afternoon with J's aunt and uncle, whose two boys are overseas in the military, his grandparents, mom, dad, and sister. On our way home we met up with my mom for a few minutes. By the time we got home it was 8:30pm. We had a great day and the kids had fun playing outside flying kites. Oh I got a dozen yellow roses from J and they are so pretty. I really enjoy my family and I wish I could better capture yesterdays memories but this will have to do. I heard Happy Mother's Day many times yesterday and recieved many hugs and kisses through out the day.
