Mother's Day.....

I can't believe it's my 4th Mother's Day.  I have learned in order to have a good Mother's Day, you need to be very specific on what you want to do.  You can't leave it up to the husbands to plan something.  So, this year I did just that.  I was easy though...only a few requests.  I wanted to sleep in, get breakfast in bed, do something fun all together and then I wanted to go to a movie by myself.  To me, that is a perfect day!  Travis delivered.  I got to sleep in until 9:30am.  He brought me breakfast in bed and a good breakfast too...eggs, cottage cheese, soy sausage and coffee.  Then, he surprised me and bought me a bunch of Stella and Dot jewelry.  2 pairs of earings, a necklace, a bracelet and a ring!  I was so surprised beacause I didn't expect gifts.  Then we went up in the hills to go hiking, then I went to go see Something Borrowed.
Packed a lunch and went for a hike.  The kids had so much fun running around.

Trying to get a pic with all the kids is nearly impossible...this is as good as it got!

I am so lucky.  I have the family that I've always wanted.
