Mothers Day

Ok, so I am a few days late. I have been thinking of this post for days but due to Blogger not allowing me to post pics the last few days and even more importantly, Joshy participating in potty training bootcamp, I have been a bit distracted.

But, as usual I can see that the month is once again slipping away and I don't have very many posts. So, here is another for you!

On Sunday, we recieved these absolutely stunning lillies at Church. Wow. Not only are they gorgeous, but I had no idea that three blossoms could produce so much incredible aroma. Oh, and they really look fantastic in my blue milk carton on the countertop.

With dad's help, the boys then picked out some great plants for the house that I have been eyeing at Makeman's (think HomeDepot) nursery. I am thinking this is some kind of bamboo plants all woven together.

This one is so cute with it's twisted trunks. The top is just a "ball" of leaves; I love it! I have even been given the go-ahead for a bonsai tree (quite pricey for a plant!). I am on the hunt for the perfect "Mr. Miyagi from Karate Kid" bonsai tree that I can put on top of my entertainment center. When I find my treasure, I will post a picture.

I also was given lots of hugs and kisses as well as a fantastic dinner compliments of Dana and the bbq grill.

This year, in thinking of what I would want to write down for a post I also wanted to mention how great the two mother's in my life are and all that they have done for our families. They have both taught me much about being a mom and wife. I want them both (Mom and Ramona) to know that I love and appreciate them. I am stubborn, strong willed, opinionated and independant; not always the easiest traits to love though they both have shown me much love. I love my mother for her strength and willingness to do whatever she can to help her family. I love Ramona for her endless praise and compliments she is always sharing with our little family. Of course, I love them both for so much more.

I am grateful to be a mother. I feel so blessed to have 3 sons that I love with all my heart and who love me. We do a lot of snuggling in this house, and I will miss it when my boys finally feel to old to snuggle with mom. Andrew said to me on Mother's Day, "You are the best woman in the whole world." Does it get any better? I just hope he remembers that in 20 years or so. *smile*

Wow Cathryn! Have you seen your first comment? Neat! I think I have seen his books in the stores too.

Okay that was a dumb question. Of course you have seen the first comment. Duh, oh well I blame it on sleep deprivation! That's my story and I'm sticking it. :)

I know what you mean about the lillies, I wish there was a way to post smells on my blog - those flowers smelled up my whole house for days!
