Our Weekend

Our weekend was nice. We accomplished a few things around the house and even found a little time for getting some rest.

Alan went to the much anticipated Star Trek movie with our son-in-law, Aaron. They enjoyed the movie a lot. It was nice for them to spend time together.

On Sunday at breakfast time, Alan and Jadyn had cards for me. Alan gave me a lovely hydrangea plant. I had strongly hinted during the week that I wanted one. "Hmm, Sunday is Mother's Day, I'm just sayin'. By the way, I love hydrangeas." Am I shameless, or what? I'm usually not so bad.

We went to church, and then to lunch as a family. When we came home, the kids had gifts and a card for me. Lauryn realized that it was my 25th Mother's Day, and so she made a card. In it, the kids had listed 25 things they love about me. The list was very unique with things describing me. It was a very sweet list, and also pretty funny. I really enjoyed the card so much. It was neat that they took the time to make the list. I enjoyed the laughter too.

These two photos were taken with my phone, so please excuse the quality. Just wanted to share them, especially the one below. Gotta love this gang!

Here is everyone, minus Alan, who was taking the photo.

They wanted to have a silly picture.

I love being part of this family. It's always good fun.

Congratulations On your 25th Mother's Day!!
That is really, really sweet that they thought of that and made you a card! How thoughtful! (I guess you'll be socking that card away eh?)
