07 Boys

Happy Mothers' Day

Last Saturday, Wayne and I took the whole posse of kids to Opening Day at Sesame Place.  It was rainy and miserable but we had a good time.  While in one of the gift shops I noticed a tiny corner with scrapbooking supplies.  OOH!  They had a Sesame Street themed album and a bunch of stickers and papers.  I wanted it.  We go to Sesame Place a LOT.  Still, I told Wayne I'd get it another day and walked out of the store.  Later on, Wayne disappeared for a long time to take Lexi to get some cotton candy before the parade.  He returned holding a suspicious, flat, squarish bag.  Happy Mothers' Day for me!

On Wednesday, while Wayne and I were painting the living room, I saw the UPS truck stop in front of the house and pull out a big, green Proflowers box.  I glared at Wayne because I told him no flowers for Mothers' Day.  He shrugged as the UPS man walked up the driveway.  I was so confused.

Inside the box was like 100 small, multicolored lilies.  The bouquet was so big, i had to break it into two vases to really show off the blooms.  the card said:

When I asked Andy what he would get you for a present, he said, "Love."  When I asked what else, he said, "Proflowers at"

Joey would give you Wall-e.

When I placed the order, he said, "I love my M-O-M-M-Y."

With Love from Andy and Joey

Steve ordered flowers for me from the boys.  I was very touched. 

Yesterday, before Lexi and Nahan left to go back to their mom's house, all the kids came out with a card, they'd signed themselves, a bouquet of daisies and a digital photo keychain for me.

This morning, I slept in until 9:30 and woke up to a bacon and egg breakfast on the table, waiting for me. 

This Mothers' Day, I am feeling very loved and very spoiled.

Right now, Joey and Wayne are napping.  Andy is playing games at and I'm about to go outside and get the newspaper.  Later on, I think we may go play mini-golf or head to a park so the boys can run around and I can look at them and get all weepy over how much I adore them.
