Happy Mother's Day !

I have had the best Mother's Day ever !! My parents and grandmother came up yesterday and we went to lunch because another really bad storm came through and we had no power for most of the day so out to lunch it was !! They enjoyed their "flower cupcakes" also.

My kids treated me to breakfast in bed, yum, yum and Rachel has been a sweetie and has worn her "I heart my Mom" tee-shirt for 2 days in a row declaring her love for me...aawww...

Do you notice how tall Blake is getting?? He's 5 ft. I'm 5 ft. 3 inches. Oh my !

Jason is spending the day with my parents and my grandmother and his other grandmother. Nothing makes me happier than that !! He has his 2 little ones with him today and I think that is the greatest way for him to spend the day !! Happy Mother's Day everyone !

At any rate, like I said I knew that no matter what the old girl had up her sleeves, I would be spared? Why? Because I had cupcakes to bake today and it just wasn't on my list today. And so after all the rumbling ( I was at Wal-Mart when the storm hit buying cupcake supplies), I headed home and made my cupcake cuties and all is right with the world. So take that Mother Nature !!

You never know what kids are thinking

Part of Rachel's homework is keeping a journal with the teacher giving them a "journal prompt" each day. Recently the prompt was "You have a million dollars, but you can't spend it on yourself. What would you do with it?" Here's here entry....

"I would build an animal shelter. We would keep on excepting animals no matter what. Plus, I would give the leftover money to poor people."

Aawww...I have such a good, kind, compassionate, caring, sweet, girl. Plus somehow, I think that would truly be her answer no matter what the conditions on the million bucks.
