Mothers Day

OK, so I am REALLY behind, but that shouldn't surprise anyone!! I hope everyone had an enjoyable Mom's Day. I just wanted to let all the moms in my life know how much I appreciate them. I have some amazing examples to look up to--my mom, grandmas, aunts, mom-in-law, cousins, and sis-in-laws who are all WONDERFUL mothers. I can learn something new from each one. Each have their different challenges and are at different stages as a mom, and it is neat to see the ways that they handle the things that are thrown at them. I Love You Guys!!


Now, on to my AWESOME Mothers Day! I got a yummy breakfast in bed that consisted of about 10 types of donuts and a HUGE Pepsi. (Calories don't count on Mother's Day!) I also got 4 kidlets in bed with me to help me eat it--I love it when they climb in bed with me to help me eat my breakfast. (well apart from the fact that I usually end up changing the sheets because there are so many crumbs!) They gave me their gifts that were, of course, made at school and church activities. I got cards, a plant from Hannah, a cute picture frame that Seth made at scouts and a plant he grew at school, and a recipe book from Bug. The recipe book was really cute. The teacher asked the kids to tell her how their mom makes their favorite food. Bugga chose Brownies--SURPRISE!! If I had only known earlier that all it took to be such a great mom was a $2 box of brownie mix...


ANYWAY, then I got to go on a date with my hubby, who came all the way home from Nevada for the weekend. And I got the MOST WONDERMOUS present from him! Are you all ready for this? I got a new cigarette lighter in my truck so I can charge my cell phone! Yep, it was the most romantic present that I have ever gotten, aside from the car stereo he gave me for my first anniversary! He didn't even get me a car charger, I had to buy my own! Ah, well... I guess I can let him off THIS time, he did drive 600 miles to be home...and he took me out to dinner!
