Happy Mother's Day!

... a little late in the day, but you'll have to forgive me. I spent my mother's day hiking through many of our great nation's airports on my way home from a visit to Chloe's. How did you celebrate YOUR mother's day?


  • We listened to a couple of YW in the ward talk about Mothers, one of them had this great quote.. "Other than God, your mother is the most influential person in your life." Happy Mothers Day to all you Moms!!

  • My sister and her DH visited, my DH made dinner and skipped his leadership mtgs, yea! Am I horrible to be so happy about that?
    My 12 yr old daughter spoke in sac. mtg, she said she feels I understand her!! That made my day, hopefully we can keep that going. It was a beautiful day in PA and one of my best mother's days. How blessed we are to be moms, and me with another one on the way!

  • Breakfast in bed; flowers; home-made cards and a "poster" by the kids; a great book; dinner; foot massage (by the kids, so it was short and not very effective :)); DH making the kids call me "Beautiful Queen" instead of "mom" all day; and a nap.

    And can I just say how amazing my ward is? We only moved here a few months ago, but I was blown away today at what they did. Can I share? Here's the rundown:

    Sac.Mtng: The speakers were all in the same family. They had an 11 yr old speak (she was awesome), then her mom, then her grandmother, and then her dad. They spoke on mothers, on a single/childless aunt who changed a life, Heavenly Mother, their own mothers, and they are such a witty and funny family, too, so there was a lot of laughter. The Primary and YW/YM sang for us, too.

    Sun School --I missed it because I was nursing #4

    RS--We met in the chapel for a slide-show of pictures of all the women in the ward and their children (our Bishop put it together), the YW sang, and then the YM sang; the best part was that every woman was in attendance --the EQ and HP took over YW and Primary the third hour! Then, with 25 minutes left in church, they sent us into the gym where the HP had made cookies (yum!). The RS presidency had collected pictures of our mothers, and so there were about 24 pictures of sisters' mothers for us to see. The Primary had a "quilt" of things our children "knew" about us hanging on the wall. And we got to visit with each other. The nursery kids got freshly cut tulips to give to their moms, and luckily I have a nursery kid. :)

    It was amazing and fabulous. I never experienced anything like it before. Man, I love this new ward...

  • I spent the day trying to convince my 5-month-old to take a nap.

    From 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. he slept for a total of 40 minutes.

    Needless to say, two of us were miserable yesterday.

  • Oh Emily C - I think my 15 month old didn't get the memo that is was Mother's Day either! He was in rare form - so I definitely was a hardworking mom on Mother's Day. Sounds like you were too!

    That being said, DH made me a yummy breakfast and I was actually able to get ready for church w/o balancing baby since his morning meetings were cancelled. And he was VERY helpful all day long. Dinner with in-laws was nice, too.

  • The kids (thanks DH) gave me a Vera Bradley tote that I've been wanting. DH made me breakfast. We hauled the gang to church and the twins were absolutely terrible during sacrament meeting. I did not have the desire to battle with them for the rest of the block so we went home. My 4 year old wanted to stay for primary so the bishop's wife brought her home for me. We had a barbecue at my grandparents' house last night and then the girls all took turns being difficult about going to bed for the night. Oh, and our central air froze up and the house got to 86 degrees. Other than that, it was a nice day. LOL.

  • I defy any of you out there to beat this one.

    I was walking along a beautiful beach in Maui on Mother's Day with just my mom and my sister. It couldn't have been more perfect. (except I was a little sad to know that princess was back on the mainland singing her mother's day song to an absentee mother.)
