Mothers Day 2010

Mother's Day 2010 ..........

Well I'm going to start off with Jennifer my six year old. She is in Kindergarten so her first time to get to make Mommy something at school. She was so excited Friday afterschool and wanted to give it to me early. I told no you hide it and Sunday morning you can give it to me. Well she told Daddy that Mommy had to have a cake so Saturday morning we went to Walmart and Jennifer picked out my cake. I forgot to take a picture before we ate it after lunch ...... oops.....

On Saturday My husband Paul and Carly got me a planter of flowers. We live in a Apartment and you can't plant anything really so I have a few flowers I can take care of. I'm from Ohio and always had flowers but living in Nevada and the hot dry summers things don't grow well anyway. So I'm really happy with a big pot of flowers.

Here is my cake

Jennifer's Windsock she made me .......

Marie who is in the second grade wrote me a letter and colored a picture ....
So very beautiful.

My son Ridge is in the third grade and always full of surprises. Well Friday he told me he thought he left my Mother's Day stuff at school.

I should have known better ........

Anyway this morning when the girls were getting there stuff out , guess who ...

Ridge had his backpack and said Hey Mom , I didn't forget you. What a son... I love him.

Here he had a baby food jar with tissue paper on the outside and a tea light candle in it. I love candles , so I really liked it.

Then he made a Mother's Day card out of recycled paper. Which was very special.

On the inside it read this :

M - Miracle
O - Outstanding
T - Tremendous
H - Hearty
E - Elegant
R - Responsible

Love Ridge
Everyone got to pick there own words to spell out MOTHER , so I really felt special.

This last one was not a Mother's Day present but a group I joined on CafeMom. I had this Tag made a couple of months ago. I just love it !!!

Today is a bittersweet day for me. I have four precious children on earth and I have two in heaven. I know that there will be a wonderful day when I will get the chance to finally meet them but until then I have two water fountains in my home that give me that calming effect. I know that they are in Heaven and safe but as I look at my fountains , I have a peace inside my heart. They are never forgotten. So right now I wanta said I love you my precious angels in Heaven.

Being a Mother is the greatest fun filled always learning something new job. I wouldn't trade a day of it.

We had my favorite for dinner tonite , Yummy Homemade Lasagna !! I cooked but Dad and the kids cleaned up and my sweet husband even did the laundry today. While I played with the kids and just took it easy.

So I hope you had a very Happy Mother's Day too ......

God Bless

Sounds like you had a lovely day. The gifts from your children are darling. I'm sure your angel babies were sending you lots of heavenly kisses, too.

that is such a cute idea with the baby food jar/candle; very clever. cute windsock too; I bet Jennifer was so full of happiness to be able to finally give you something she had made in school for your special day. Love Marie's letter too; she has very nice penmanship! hope the flowers from Carly/hubby do well; always a nice remembrance too as you look at them growing

I am sorry your other two little ones weren't there celebrating with you but I know one day they will be for all of eternity!

dinner sounded yummy too as did the cake :)
