My Mother's Day

Early in the morning Joey and the girls were busy busy making breakfast and finishing up their cards. Here are some pictures Joey took of the scene. . .

They worked hard and ended up creating this lovely masterpiece. . .looks better than IHOP!
They brought it to me in bed. Isn't it adorable? I love those handmade flowers:)

I'm lucky.

They also presented me with wonderful gifts after church. Joey got me a giftcard(I told him to just do a giftcard this year-that way I can just buy whatever I want!) and one of those Hallmark cards with the music. He wrote such sweet things and I definitely know he appreciates me and all I do. He is so good about always telling me that. I sure love that guy. He also bought a Hallmark coupon book to be from him and girls. It has 52 coupons inside for various things I can redeem it for like a night of pampering, cleaning the bathroom, making me dinner, etc. When I read outloud, "cleaning the bathroom" Joey said, "Hmmmm....I should've read through that book a little closer." I guess he didn't see that one:) You're too LATE!!!(say that in your best Ursula voice) I have the coupon now....wha ha ha ha! Aubrey made me a few things at school, a candle, a windchime and my favorite- a book about me(I'll post it next). It was sooooo cute and sweet. I loved it. I will keep that precious book forever. Ella drew me a couple of pictures that said, I love you MOM, with pictures of flowers and us together. She is a great artist just like her big sister(and so smart too!). She was so cute that morning. Joey said while they were making breakfast that Ella kept saying, "Mom will be so pleased." :)And for Mother's Day, Cali gave me a wet kiss. What could be better!?

I am so grateful to be a mother, especially to these precious little girls that I have. They are so special. Each one has their own little personality that I adore and each one I love more than words can say. They are so sweet, so polite, so girly, so respectful, so loving, so well behaved and so wonderful. I couldn't have gotten better kids! I ain't lying-they are the best! Thats why I want like 2 or 3 more:) I am so blessed. Thanks Joey, Aubrey, Ella & Cali for making this an awesome Mother's Day!

Sounds like a wonderful day -- so glad you were appreciated. I loved your thoughts on mama-hood - it's probably been my nicest blessing in my life.
