Just let me say that since moving here our holiday celebrations have not been up to par with the past.....except this one. When I got out of the shower there was this plant (tropical I might add) and this great card from Mark. The plant will go perfect with our interior paint color. You know why? Because we are re-painting! I know, I know......but as you know, or have not even a clue about, is that we don't love the color we have now and what better time than before our flooring goes in. The color is called "wheeling neutral" by Benjamin Moore, which has nothing to do with the color at all.(it has a green side to it) But boy do we like it and the whole feel of the house will be more inviting, I think. And more tropical-ish too..
So back to my day. The kids made me breakfast and it was so yummy. Strawberries that you dip in sour cream and brown sugar along with a real grainy toast and orange juice. At church all the mothers recieved a long stemmed red rose and the YM sang a song. I love hearing an all male choir, there is something so "missionary like" to me. For dinner Michelle made the best hamburgers ever along with a fruit salad and grilled asparagas. Laurel was sick. Neal helped Mark with the barbequing. Clark and Brad called within seconds of eachother and they are 6 hours apart so it was pretty neat. Brad called on line two and ten seconds later Clark called on line one. Clark was getting ready for church preparing his Mothers Day talk. I hope he told good stories about me.
The one thing that was different about this day for the first time in 20 years was that it was the beginning of the end of elementary school Mothers Day crafts/projects/gifts. With Nealster being in 6th grade I guess he is too old for that kinda stuff. But all in all it was a great Mother's Day because it felt like it always has.
