Artwork from the kids
Mother's Day surprises from my sweet boys. From left: Zenock made in kinder, it unfolds to show a tall flower. Ammon's grape stamping and weaving project from his class. Ammon's from Church. Gideon's from Church...it says his favorite thing about me is that I am nice. I can just imagine the teachers asking him if I was nice and him saying uhhuh!!! in his very high pitched and head nodding way. Then Zenock's from Church. Ammon's card from school. And lastly Zenock's from school. They almost threw them at me when I first got up on Sunday morning, it was soooo funny. And for three days before that they both kept telling me not to look in their backpacks. I wasn't allowed to check homework or anything without supervision, haha!
Brady and the kids got me a bamboo bread slicer board...I hope he stops making fun of how aweful I can cut bread sometimes, since the slicer helps make nice, even pieces of homemade bread. And I also got a paddle for my mixer that has the rubber spatula thing on it to scrape the sides. I have wanted one of those for a few years now, and I'm really excited to try it out soon. I really wish I would have been able to sleep in and not do the regular morning routine, and that my husband could take the day off so I could relax more, but that wasn't an option...so it was just a regular day of only spending time with an awake Daddy while we were at Church then listening to him snore the rest of the day until it was time for him to go to work at 8pm. I knew I wasn't going to want to cook any sort of dinner, so I pulled out a big frozen pizza from Costco and threw it in the oven. It wasn't great but better than peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Maybe next year I'll get a "Mom" vacation for a day like the holiday implies every mom should get.
