Mother's Day

Notice how,
I'm ready to MOP up the MESSES of the World!

I hope that all of the Mother's in Blogland have had a wonderful day with their children and grandchildren.

Today was a very special day for me and I enjoyed every moment. I'm not sure what was different this year, maybe it was my attitude, I've tried over the years to not think of myself and how much I miss my own mother but, to make it about others. I wanted my kids to enjoy today too!

The day started out early. I had to finish a quick project for my daughter who's a mother and while I did that my DS and DD made me breakfast while my husband made a lasagna for dinner. This afternoon we went to church and enjoyed a wonderful service. The Primary Kids sang to the mom's and after the first speaker a group of daughters and daughter-in-laws sang a medley of Mother's day songs. It was very special.

Many of you may have recieved the "2009 Mother of the Year Award" by email. It was a lot of fun to have a look at. But what was fun is that my youngest daughter made me her version of the award. It brought a sweet smile to my face and I got lots of hugs and kisses out of it. She also helped me lead the music during the closing song in Relief Society (at Church). We sang "Teach Me to Walk in the Light" and I couldn't even get through the first verse of the song without crying. It was very touching as a Mom to stand there with your sweet child singing an inspirational song. I will tuck that memory in my heart!!!

Enjoy the pictures of my "Mother of the Year Award"

BTW: Kenna took all of these pictures. She's going to make a great little photographer someday. I especially love the pictures she took of me. She also took some great ones of me and my husband too!

She found a rock in the backyard for the base of the award. Then took a pencil and put it inside the Rag Doll she made and duct taped it to the rock. Then she got a stick and yarn to make the mop. Isn't that creative? I'm really proud of her.

Kenna's Handmade Card
My favorite kind of Card!

Here I am with my Special and Best Award EVER!!!

Yeah for Kenna! She is very creative. It sounds like a perfect day. Isn't it amazing how the little things mean so much, like remembering leading the song together, etc.?

My Hubby did make me breakfast while hunter watched,he is not allowed in the kitchen while we eat, then I spend a fab day in our garden getting together a bouquet in memory for mom. All in All it was great.
