I hope all of you Momma's out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. We had a great day. John's parents, grandmother and my mother all came over for a little visit! John surprised me with this Willow Tree collection. I had mentioned a while back that I would love to have these and he remembered and bought them for me. Thank you sweetie, I love them and I would LOVE to have the Willow Tree Nativity set ONE DAY too...just saying..lol.
Isn't this the perfect Mother's day gift. The couple is named "Together", for those who have found their true partner in love and life. Then we have the little boy named "Inquisitive child", which is definitely Brennan and the little girl is named " Spirited Child", which again describes Ayla perfectly. The older boy is named " Heart of Gold", which represents my oldest son Kaleb. He absolutely has a heart of gold and I have said this many times!
Kaleb had to work all day so I did not get a picture with all of my little loves, but when he came home from work he gave me a gift. This is the first time he has actually went out and bought me something with his own money so I was very surprised to say the least. When I opened it up, it was a pandora bracelet. I couldn't believe my 16 year old did that for me. I was so happy and proud of him it made me tear up a little. Of course I did ask him if it was real, hehe and it was, he HAD to show me the receipt. Anyway, I just thought that was the sweetest thing ever! I love all of my children so much, I am truly blessed to be their Momma!
After everyone left, we helped Ayla plant a "garden" as she says. She is always wanting to plant something, she has all the tools to do it, lol, so John took her to Lowe's this morning and they picked out some vegetables to plant. We planted, tomatoes, carrots and green beans. I really hope everything turns out, if not, we still had the best time working on this together. She loves to water the flowers, so we thought this would be fun for her to do everyday. We usually buy flowers and plant them on Mother's day but it was freezing this weekend so we decided to wait for a better weekend!
It looks like we have a lot of work to do!!
