Happy Mother's Day to me!

So, unlike my own mother, I love mother's day! It means I can get away with being lazy (it's not that I am not lazy on other days, I just have an excuse on Mother's Day!), and cott does lots of fun stuff for me and I get presents! I also get to whine and groan about the children I've had, and complain about their labors.

Okay, so I don't really, but sometimes I wish I could. So this mother's day I got to sleep in and then woke up to Nathan telling me it was breakfast time and we were having "Birthday Cake" (translation: pancakes).




Then Scott brought out my Mother's Day gift. So, two years ago for Mother's Day he bought two canvas prints, one of Nathan and I, and one of Ethan. I have them up on my living room wall with a sears family portrait. Scott has been saying we needed a third canvas print, but I have wanted to wait until we could get my Dad to take another family picture. So, for Mother's day here is what I got:



I was so surprised. I had always complained that Scott wasn't in any of the canvas prints, so while I was off with girly friends during the Twilight party he picked up the kids and went to his work and got a coworker to take this picture. He is so sweet and so thoughtful. He remembers when I tell him things I would like, just in passing.

We decided to go to church with my parents mostly because I know they always get chocolate bars instead of flowers ;). I just had to post what we got so everyone else could take this idea to their ward for next year. This is the wrapping that covered our HUGE symphony bars.



I have no idea why they loaded sideways, but you get the idea. Just in case you can't read everything here is what it says:

How cute, "birthday cake". I love kids thoughts and comments, they're the best.

Scott sounds like Craig when it comes to gifts. Craig will remember what I said in Feb. for my birthday in Dec.!!! If only our husbands could share their memory gene with us, wouldn't that be great???:)

Glad you had such a great Mother's day. You deserve it, you're a great mom and person in general!

I love the mother's day picture! That is so cute of all of them. Scott IS a great guy! Too bad I only saw it in the box and not on the wall. Oh well...I was still your first friend to see it. Right! :)
