from Mothers Day - a snapshot (snapshots!!)

a plant and hand painted pot from Carly

oh, the puke bucket that saw A LOT of action this past weekend and AGAIN today!

A few of my gifts. Motherhood magnets for poetry on the fridge, really fun postcards about motherhood! And, a lime that Cameron found in the fruit container that had a bruise in the shape of a heart!! Isn't nature beautiful! And a stack of magazines to read when I want to!

A Daddy that holds babies is GOOD!

on the left is a cool laminated bookmark from Cameron (which reads: Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, but the best Mom is you!) and on the right words of love from Carly. Beautiful.

A hand painted dish, and soap from Claire on the left (of course done in my fave colour!) And, on the right a card from all the kids.

I had a great day. After nice night out last night for our 10th anniversary, and this morning I got up and went for a run, which turned into more of a long walk in the rain and wind. And then home and a drive for bagels, treats for the kids. A new jacket for me! A trip to the nursery to get plants for our garden. Ice cream, shopping, and then take out Chinese food. It was a great day. I had a beautiful day with my kids and I was so pleased to have gorgeous sunshine this evening!

Happy Mothers Day!
