Mothers Day Stuff

I know it's already WAY past Mothers Day- but we've had camera issues and i'm just now getting to upload my photos. So now that you already read aout everyone else's days you can read about mine too! 

It's been years since I've been able to spend the day with my mom on mothers day so I was so excited when it worked out that I could spend the entire day at home with my family. I drove out early on Sunday morning and went to church with my mom. I got to help in her primary class. Although I was looking forward to a break from the 10 three year olds I currently teach in my ward being surrounded by other people's primary kids made me miss mine. As hectic as Sundays can be I love those little kids!

After church Todd and Dana and Erik came over and we all cooked dinner for my mom. We made grilled chicken, grilled pineapple, grilled asparagus (are you catching a pattern here) baked potatoes, salads, jello, rolls, and fruit pizza. It was divine! It was a gorgeous day so we set the tables in our yard and enjoyed each others company. It was so nice to have everyone home and happy.

My mom was spoiled with presents from all of us. Dad and Cameron even gave her a certificate saying they were going to make her a walk in closet. I know she's been looking forward to that for months! It was so much fun. We sat around and took tons of pictures and laid on the grass talking. Absolutely perfect.

I am so grateful for my mom. She is my very best friend (except the hubby who without a doubt my very very best friend) and I don't know what I would do without her. Thanks so much for being a great mom and for sacrificing so much of yourself to make us happy.

I love you so much mom!

~Happy Mothers Day~

You do have a great mom! I am glad that you came to visit her, that gives me hope that when Preston leaves home he MAY come back home once in a while, lol
