I am so glad I can finally post! My blog has been down the past couple days I have tried to get on! I hope y'all had a fabulous Mother's Day! Here's a little peek into what we did!
Mother's Day Spa Escape
in Gabe's Class.
Mrs. Putnam totally went above & beyond for her class! She set up this little "retreat" for all of the moms. It was so much fun. Once we arrived we received a bag from our child with a little tag on it with his picture in it. Super cute :-) The picture is really nice too! Inside the bag had a craft for us to do, an eye mask, and instructions about our day. We made his cute little frame, took turns giving each other a massage, putting lotion on & eating! We had some yummy pinwheels, cheese & crackers, cake & a tea punch! So much fun! Did I say that already??
On Mother's Day-I felt like I got to do all of my favorite things! First of all my kids spent the night at my mom's house so I got to wake up kidless-I know it was MOTHER'S DAY and I should be with my kids but it was GREAT! I got to get up, get dressed, and Bill treated me to some Starbucks before church-serisouly? He also bought me this fabulous necklace! I LOVE it! It has the kids names & the year they were born.
He got it at lilly ellen designs on etsy! Super fabulous! I will cherish it forever!
After getting home from church my mom & dad came over & we had some breakfast burritos. My mom brought me this gift the kids made-a cookbook (I forgot to take a picture of it) that was filled with recipes I like to make i.e chicken salad, tomato salad, pancakes, waffles, chocolate chip cookies. Let's just say I have never made waffles in my life unless they have come out of the freezer or it was at a continental breakfast at a hotel. :-) But hey they can think I make them, haha! Gabe also spent HOURS making me this amazing banner. I wonder where he got the idea to make a banner, lol. Isn't it so fun? It decorates our hallway. I might just need to leave it up forever!
We also snagged a few pictures of me & the kids!
Gabe and I made some chocolate covered strawberries together!
I said I got to do what I loved! So Gabe & I planted over 40 plants that day! So maybe it was more me than him but hey he still helped! Check out the before & after!
We planted 6 tomato plants, 4 peppers, several different herbs & lots of flowers!
We even busted out the slip n slide! Yes I did go down it!
We wrapped up our day with a big turkey dinner-who says you can only have turkey once a year??
I love to cook for my family! I also made 2 banners before bed!
I got to go get coffee, praise Jesus at church, play with my kids, cook, plant, play some more, spend time with my family & create stuff-can it get much better?
Here are a few pictures of flowers from around our yard! May you soak in the beauty of our creator today! Hope you all had a great Mother's Day!
