My Best Mothers' Day

It is now Monday, the day after my 12th Mothers' Day! I'd have to say that this qualifies as one of my best.

On Friday, the munchkins & I got together w/ my "Mom Therapy" friend & her kids. We met at the library for a book sale, grabbed some Sonic Drive-Thru specials, & headed to a park for lunch & play. When we got home, Casinodad was already there. On the table was a pretty bouquet of purple & white flowers, which he'd bought for me on his way home from work. He got started on dinner & told me to just relax. He even did the dishes afterwards!

Saturday was my work day. I arrived home around 7:30 pm to see this on the table:

I'll bet you're wondering what's in those jars! He spent the afternoon experimenting & came up w/ a variety of cheesecakes...strawberry, white chocolate mocha, chocolate cream cheese, chocolate chips, & more. Those I've eaten so far have been delicious!

On Sunday morning, he made me breakfast in bed. I was greeted to pancakes w/ white chocolate mocha creamer & scrambled eggs. The other night we had asparagus wrapped w/ bacon for part of our dinner. He chopped up some of the leftovers & mixed them in w/ the eggs...YUM!

For the rest of the day after church, he let me relax & I even took a nap for a couple of hours. He got lunch ready for all of us then made dinner in the evening...hamburgers & sweet potato fries.

While the munchkins went outside to play, we started watching Downton Abbey, which we are now hooked on!

I have to say that this was the most relaxing Mothers' Day I've had. I became quite spoiled & am now wondering if I'll be able to get back into my regular Momma routine today. I suppose I should start thinking now about some surprises for Fathers' Day next month!

I hope all my mom friends & family had a wonderful Mothers' Day also.

WOW! That's SO special!
I (ahem) would NOT have been able to eat those desserts ONE at a time! LOL
And that Asparagus in the eggs is making me REALLY hungry! LOL
God bless your family for making you feel so appreciated and special.
(We're working on Father's Day ideas, too!)
