My Gifts

I love that my kids get so excited to give me the Mother's Day gifts they made in school that they can hardly wait to take them out of their backpacks to hand to me with a huge smile on their faces.

L.O.V.E. it!

I usually get them on the Friday before Mother's Day because there is no way they are going to wait until Sunday...

Brother gave me 5 gifts! 5! One was a cute paper cut-out of a paper pot full of flowers with a photo of him sitting in flowers glued to the pot. The other four gifts (that he wrapped himself) we other photos from his field trips over the last few weeks. Oh so cute and oh he was so proud.

Then, Sister, seeing that Brother had jumped the gun had to quickly follow suit and ran to me with her big toothy smile and handed me her paper cut-out of a pot of flowers, but her flowers had stems made of twisty pipe cleaners. She was so proud she kept smiling right in my face just waiting for the 10th time I would say "thank you, I love it!"

Then Baby surprised me on Saturday when she took a pack of gum from my purse pocket, showed it to me and said, "I wawnna peesa gummm." Translation: "I want a piece of gum."



A request?

An actual purpose to her wording?

And not only was it functional talking, but it was a full sentence!


And it didn't stop there.

Later she asked me for a ice cream sandwich in her own way when she led me to the freezer door!


I love them!

On Mother's Day we invited my parents and Marc's parent for the holiday and we Barbequed, laughed, talked, ate, played, and ate homemade ice cream. It was the bomb-diggity of Mother's Day gatherings!

Frank and Bryan did the honor of cooking because Marc was out on a call for work. Thanks guys, you did a great job!

Just happened to catch Ya-ya as she dumped her plate. My dad thinks it's pretty funny.

Miss Cheeto face happy that Grandpa James finally got her in

Mmmmmmm. Mom cranking away at the homemade ice cream.
