Behind the Camera: Roses for Mama

I hope all you Mom’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday. We went to the beach in the morning and then enjoyed a relaxing day around the house in the afternoon. My girls got me these roses (though Olivia really, really wanted to get me a toothbrush for some reason), and both made me many presents throughout the day. Sarah spent several hours making me a “picture book”, which was a collection of colorings she did and then pasted on cardstock and put the whole thing together as a book with tape. She really did a great job! Livvie brought me about eight different presents throughout the day, little things from around the house she knew I’d like…scissors, a paintbrush, a comb, some beads, flowers from the back yard, etc, each wrapped in a construction paper drawing. Sweet little angels for the day. And can’t forget DH. He surprised me with a pretty new watch (I LOVE watches…). How was your day?

Just as sweet and creative as their Mama. Glad you had a very nice Mother's Day.

my day started off bent, but eventually straightened out. my kids were fun in the end. and dh wasn't too shabby, either, if a bit late. he bought me chocolates and a new hibiscus to plant. (last year's died)
