Mother's Day

It's not every year that you get a foot of snow on Mother's Day!  Well, we didn't quite get as much as they predicted but it sure was interesting to sit and watch the snow come down instead of planting stuff outside in the garden on a warm sunny day.

John had to work that day so I got to hang out with the kiddos.  We went to Denny's (in the snow) and then went to get my oil changed, watched movies all day and finally to church.  Both boys made me special gifts.  I LOVE them!

 After talking to Nanny on the phone, Aaron kept himself busy at Denny's by practicing his letters.  
Ok, it sounds absurd that we would go to Jiffy Lube when it was snowing and on Mother's Day of all days!  But there was no one else there and the staff was super kind to us, even offering the boys hot chocolate.

Later when John got home, I got to open more Mother's Day gifts and cards - I even got a card from baby girl!  I don't have a picture of it, but I really wanted a floppy hat to wear when I garden.  John nailed it.  It makes me feel country girl-ish!  I love it!  I also got a new water bottle I had been asking for in pink of course and a new clip for my keys that I must clip to something or I lose!

I am so blessed to have such a great role model for a mother and mother in law as well.  I love you both dearly and hope you had a great day.  Mom - I wish we could have been together for our annual pedicure!  And please forgive me, we really did make cute Mother's Day cards of which I still have...  I will get them out before Father's day!  Hopefully...  : )  Love you guys.
