Mother's Day Fun!

Okay I have been very busy this week. I am in the process of finishing up all the final plans for Kids Village Summer Camps. Which has really taken every extra moment for a few weeks now. I think I have everything planned and now I have to get things ordered and all ready. Fun for me! But I must say that things may be busy but life still goes on and I have lots to tell.

Mother's Day was awesome! I was very surprised by my family. Saturday afternoon Craig took the kids for a while. When they got home one at a time each child walked into my office with a huge Costco boquet of roses. Hello I ended up with like 6 dozen roses. All different colors. The kids were so cute each one said the exact same thing like it had been rehearsed...
"Happy Mother's Day, here's some roses"
I know very poetic! But it was so thoughtful. Caleb made a comment like the big surprise is coming. I really didn't think much about it. Later in the evening I was busy making the final preparations for my mom's gift, not really paying attention to what was going on around me. I was in search for a piece of sand paper. After not being able to find any I went looking for Craig to help me. I rounded the corner and stepped down into the family room and Craig's older brother, and his parents were standing there. The french doors were opened and Craig's truck was pulled around to the back deck. I was so oblivious to everything...but this was the big surprise. Craig had made me a new coffee table. It is beautiful. He needed everyone's help cause it is one heavy thing. The end tables aren't finished yet but they will complete the set. It is goregous and I love it. And yes I was surprised to say the least. Look at how pretty this looks.

My family room is starting to take shape! I love my couch and coffee table!
(Little note about the couch...Craig and I figured that after 13 years of marriage, it was time that we bought something new! All of our furniture up to this point has been hand-me-down. Not that I am against hand-me-downs at all...but we really needed a new couch. I finally got my leather sectional. I love it! )

Mother's Day morning, I woke up as usual, got the children up and then was told to go back to bed. I did as I was told and knew exactly what was going on. I could hear my children bustling around the kitchen. I was preparing myself for a nice bowl of Crunch Berries or something like that but I was once again surprised. I got every kids dream breakfast brought to me. I had to take a photo to document this. I laughed so hard when I saw it. It had Caleb & Zach's names written all over it. I think Libby had to talk them into using the tray. I know that every mom is absolutely jealous of my breakfast in bed. You know you secretly wanted 11 chocolate mini donuts, 3 kudos bars & to wash it all down a superman cup filled with water! Priceless! One I will never forget!

Like I said, this one will never be forgotten! I love the cup! It all makes me laugh!

I hope that all you Mother's had a wonderful day. I hope you were pampered and loved more than usual. I have an amazing mother! She means the world to me. She has taught me everything I know and I owe everything to her. I love you MOM! Thanks for everything!

Well, it's obvious that the Superman cup is supposed to mean that you are "Supermom!" That breakfast is priceless! You're kids are so cute!

The couch and table are awesome! I know what you mean about the hand me down furniture. I'm not taking anything (well, maybe just a couple of things) when I move.

Your hubby did a great job on the table and it is perfect in your family room! AND it even looks better with all those beautiful roses on it. Happy Mother's Day, Cricket!

I love it- and the couch. Way to go Craig! Hope you had a wonderful day. We still haven't got together-sorry. When will life slow down?
