Happy Mother's Day!

I had a wonderful wake up to a bouncing, singing boy coming into our room, and he gave me big Mother's Day hugs and kisses. While Daddy was cooking up a Mother's Day breakfast fit for a queen (a big ol' fat queen at that!) Nash looked at me and said, "oh, oh, a booboo, I fix it". Be right Back. Bandaid." So he left (I was still lounging in bed, and came back with a bandaid. I asked why I needed a bandaid, and as he stuck it on my face, I realized I had the world biggest zit next to my nose. Happy Mother's Day to me. But gotta love the love I get!

Here are some pictures of my wonderful gifts and card. The best? Well aside from the bandaid, was the hand print plate! And the flowers, and my gifts of a beautiful, smart little boy, and a wonderful husband and dad to my son!
