I ended up having the best Mother's Day! The whole weekend was nice - but Sunday was especially relaxing. The kids didn't fight like they did on Saturday. :) We went to dinner on Saturday night with Keith's family. The kids were happy with their ice cream dessert!
Then on Sunday, they let me sleep in (sort of):
Then I came downstairs to this (and a special breakfast treat!):
The twins each made me a flower magnet with their picture on it. Connor made me a vase with three flowers in it. On the stem of each flower is something he can do for me (cook me dinner, give me a hug, help me with anything I ask).
We went to Family Mass at church, where there was a crowning for the Blessed Mother. All the kids brought up a flower to the Mary statue - it was so sweet to watch. The kids behaved during Mass - perhaps it had something to do with the promise of donuts afterwards at Nana and Bumpa's house. My parents had all of us over after church. Then Keith and I took the kids to a local green house for vegetables, flowers, and I treated myself to a fairy garden. (Well, I bought what I needed, then put it together at home!)
This is what I worked on outside - I am doing a fairy garden out there as well. I also filled my pots with colorful flowers.
With my very boring and sucky diet these days, I requested that my wonderful husband grill me a steak. :) So we had that for dinner, along with a baked potato and veggies. YUM! Plus there were leftovers.
All in all, it was a great day. :)
