On Friday night I told my kids it was Mother's Day weekend and they all told me I wasn't allowed to stretch it out for a whole weekend. Haha silly kids! Well today is even more special then normal mother's days. TODAY is my mom's birthday on top of being mother's day. The sad part of it all is that I won't even get to see her. I need to plan a day to celebrate both of these with her.
In our house Mother's Day is like having a birthday for me. My hubby's love language is gifts so he always gives me the best. Mother's Day is no exception, he rocked the gift department! About 4 years ago he got me a really nice point and shot camera while over the last month it has been acting up. I think the motor is dying on it. He went out and bought me a nice canon power shot with amazing zoom capabilities. I LOVE it. It is much bigger than any of the other cameras we have owned but the picture quality is FANTASTIC. Another thing you have to know about my hubby is when he buys gifts he gives them right away! He is the one who kicked the weekend off with giving me my gift...so the kids can blame him for the weekend long celebration ;) This morning the kids brought me breakfast in bed...yogurt with granola and all their handmade gifts from school.
From GG I got some paper flowers in a bouquet, a real spider plant that she put in the pot we made together at the retreat the other day, a fan, a card and a poem.
Here is the poem:
My Mother is the Best
Out of all the Rest
She lovingly cares for Me
She is extraordinary
So what do I say to her Today?
Happy Happy Mother's Day!
A Book about me and a real plant.
The book asks questions and he answers them. The first is to describe me. He says, "My mom is special because she can do a lot of things. She's also special because she's my mom. Happy Mother's Day!
Each of the questions has a drawing of the answer. I love his drawings they are so good!
Red gave me a hanging picture with paper flowers. Too cute.
Peanut had to wait until after Sunday School to give me the necklace she made for me. But she was so proud to give it to me since she watched the other three give me gifts from school before church.
We went to Jason's Deli for lunch and then headed over to my in laws for naps and dessert. I got some new recipes from Sue's cookbooks really excited about that!!! Also just wanted to mention that this is my 1500 post! That is a lot of posts :)
