Mother's Day lasted all weekend for me. Friday night we dropped off the boys at the church for a babysitting fund raiser the Young Women put together. First Don took me shopping to pick out a couple outfits for me that he and I both liked. I like getting his opinion. Then went to P.F. Chang's for a nice dinner.
Saturday, I woke up to a beautiful bouquet of red roses. Who doesn’t love a man who surprises her with red roses? We enjoyed the day together as a family.
On Sunday, all three boys got up in church with the other primary kids, and sang "Mother I Love You". Well, they didn't really sing they just watched me and smiled the whole time, but it was still touching. It was the first time all three of them got up on the stand together. Nicholas and Lucas are Sunbeams and Jayden is a CTR5 now. After sacrament the Young Men passed out chocolate truffles to all the women. I put it in my purse and got distracted chatting with someone. I looked down and saw chocolate all over Nicholas' face. Then up popped Lucas and Jayden from under the seat with equally messy traces of chocolate smeared around their guilty little grins. Don was very upset with them for eating mommy's Mother's Day chocolates. Lucas started to cry. I could tell he felt bad so I picked him up and we all walked out to the van. As he laid his teary head on my shoulder he said "Mommy, I am sorry for eating your chocolate". It was so sweet. He really felt remorse.
I felt very loved on Mother's Day. I am blessed to have a wonderful family.
I made a Scrapblog for my Mom and Mom-in-law, Kathleen. I miss my mom and wish I could see her more often. She lives in CA with Ser and her boys.
