Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! For my present, Lindsey decorated this cake for me:

She did it at the local grocery store where my son works. He had the idea for the cake which was sweet. Thanks kids!

I also got to sleep in a little bit then Jay brought me coffee in bed. The girls came in for hugs and to say Happy Mother's Day, then they all left, shut the door, and I read a book and drank a few cups of coffee in peace and quiet. :-) Took a shower then the day began. :-)

My in-laws came over for supper. Shortly after they arrived I went to get Allison up from her nap. I opened her bedroom door to find her wearing nothing, clothes and diaper on the floor. I'm pretty sure she slept like that, buck naked, because she had majorly wet the bed. Thankfully she went there (everything easily washed) and not on the floor. No picture unfortunately! :-)

I had a really nice day, although it was very bittersweet as this is the first Mother's Day without my mom. :-( Yesterday my 3 sisters and I walked in the Soleburner (5K run/walk) to raise money for cancer. It felt very good to be honoring my mom in that way and spend the morning with my sisters. We have always been close but this past year has brought us even closer and we have spent so much more time together. After the walk we went out for coffee and then visited my mom's grave.

Mom, I love you and miss you so much! Happy Mother's Day to the best mom EVER!

Happy Mother's Day to my MIL also, she is a wonderful MIL and I have absolutely no complaints. Happy Mother's Day to all mothers, to those who are waiting, waiting, waiting for their little one from China especially. And Happy Mother's Day to kitty mothers (you know who you are, Wrigley and Quincy's mom!!! ~smile~)

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! Sorry I'm a day behind. Seems like I'm always playing catch up. :) SO funny about Allison. Sounds like our girls have another thing ing common...stripping and leaving little wet surprises for their mommies. I think they're destined to be friends. :)

Have a great week -
