Happy Mother's Day!

I just want to say "Happy Mother's Day!" to everyone. I had a really special, laid-back day. I woke up to a love note on a paper plate (who needs fancy cards?) and some gifts. Garr bought me flowers and a beautiful silver charm bracelet with hearts on it and matching earrings. Very special and a surprise since we don't usually exchange gifts (to save $$). Then the girls sent me on a treasure hunt for my gifts from them. Emelyn made me a diamond shaped pin (painted clay) and Abby made me a bracelet with a pipe cleaner and beads. They also both gave me cards and notes that said "I love you" and "You are the best mom ever." Oh and Liv decorated a flower pot and gave me a flower and a tattoo. =] I got to lay down and take a nap with Liv and Daniel this afternoon. The rest of the day we just hung out and spent time together as a family. It was a very special day. I am especially blessed to have these children to love. So thankful.

Sounds like a great Mother's Day!! What a cute idea for them to send you on a treasure hunt for your gifts!
