Mother's Day

Elvis came to visit us for breaksfast Mother's Day.  He left Kate some pants that she calls  her Elvis pants. A friend gave them to us a couple of years ago and Kates found them in a box and was immediately excited about them. Awesome!

Conner was so excited about his card he made in school.

The kids helped make me an awesome breakfast. My favorite biscuit and gravy with strawberries and cranberry juice.
I always overeat on this stuff. It is so good. They made a great lunch of granola and yogurt and California tacos for dinner. I am so lucky to have great kids and a great husband. Jon had Sister Dee's in our ward teach me how to make yummy chocolates. I spent a couple hours with her learning how to make truffles. I thought it was a great idea and it was fun to spend time with her. She calls her chocolates Dee's candy instead of See's candy. The kids are excited to have me make some chocolate. 

I love Conner's plate he made in school. I remember doing these in school. 

When Kate heard about the kids making things for me. She wanted to make something too so she spent like an hour coloring pages for me. This was is a roller coaster. 

I love my little guy. I had Jon take some pictures after church of all of the kids. I decided I am never in the pictures so I  had him take some. 

He is going to be a tetherball player I just know it. He loves to stand on the tire and hit the ball. 

This is the best one I could get of the kids. I am lucky to be their Mom. 

The boys picked out flowers for Kate as well as me. Because she is a girl and will  someday be a Mom.
I do love my little girl. 

This is Taylor's card that he made me. I love the inside that says.
                                                                       M-most caring
                                                                       O-  One of your best talents is sewing
                                                                       T-the most beautiful to me. 
                                                                       H- Haven't met another person as caring as you. 
                                                                       E- Each person we pass admires you
                                                                       R- Rock on Mom.

This is a book Justin made for me.
"My Mom's dark brownish hard lays on her pink and white shirt curly. Her beautiful green eyes swivel back and forth as he walks. Her metal necklace and the metal disics jingle when she walks and shimmers when the sun is down. My Mom is a super good artist and when she was younger she took art lesson's. Her pink clothes match her white shirt. "
"My Mom is special because she lets me buy rope and Z curve bows and arrows. My Mom is special because she makes food for me and lets me help. My Mom is special because she lets me play on PBS kids.

This is from Lisa's blog. I thought she did such a good job. That I copied hers and wanted to add a few things of my own to the list. 

I tried to write down some things to describe my mom, and things I admire about her:
