Mother's Day

My Mother's Day started off with Drew and Kayley running into my room when I was getting ready carrying a huge card and a gift bag decorated by Kayley.  They were so excited to show me a preview of my Mother's Day presents, but we decided I would wait to open them until I was ready.  They were giggling with excitement!

I came downstairs and opened up the huge card.  Drew told me Andy bought it at the "huge card store."  I asked Drew what store it was and he just repeated that Andy told him he bought it at the huge card store.  I found out later that the huge card store was actually the gas station near the kids' daycare.  :-)  Andy saw it and thought the kids would love to give it to me and they did!

Drew gave me a picture he drew of a pirate ship and a framed picture of him with puzzle pieces around it.  In the middle he wrote, "I love you to pieces."  Very cute!  Kayley gave me a towel with her handprint on it.  Both gifts were perfect!

The kids drove back to Iowa today with my mom to spend the week with my parents.  We planned on them leaving right after lunch, but the kids were getting their shoes on at 9:15am because they were ready to go!  Andy took Sox to get her haircut and when he got back at 10am, he put the car seats in mom's car and they were on their way.  They are always excited to go to the farm, but this might be the most excited they have ever been.  I am sure they will have a great time and probably won't be missing mom and dad too much.

It was a quiet rest of the day.  Andy took me to dinner tonight and it was weird being able to eat while our meals were hot, not having to get up at least once to take a child to the bathroom, not having to clean up a spill...  :-)

Happy Mother's Day to my mom, my mother-in-law who we miss very much and all the other mothers we know!
