Mother's Day 2009

Today has been a great day. I woke up (late) to breakfast in bed. After getting ready for church I was finally able to open my gifts from the kids. They all made me cards at school and at home, and I will always treasure their artwork and words. Will made a collage of different fabrics with a picture of him in the middle. He also wrote me a note on the back. I am going to frame it and hang it in a prominent spot downstairs. Allison made pink bath salts at school, and I can't wait to take a bubble bath. Caroline planted a zinnia in a homemade flower pot and gave me a card where she had filled in the blanks on some of my information. The funniest answer was that I weighed 30 pounds! She did say that my favorite place to shop is Nordstrom, so she is right on there! Ray gave me a card, a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and the software Photoshop Elements so I can edit our pictures better. After a wonderful church service we met Gram and Grandpa at Copeland's restaurant at the Hilton in the Town Center for brunch. We had a great meal and a fun time celebrating with them. The rest of the afternoon has been nice because we haven't had any place that we have to be. I have been getting lots done around the house, and we are getting ready to start homework to get ahead on this week. I think I will also get to squeeze in a run before dinner! We wish we could have seen Ray's mom to celebrate with her, and we wish her a very Happy Mother's Day! I feel so fortunate to have a wonderful husband, three beautiful and very thoughtful children and the best mother in the world! Enjoy our pictures from the day.
