First, lets run through my list of "Mothers Day Wishes" and see if I got any! ;)
*My hubby to NOT be on call for work this weekend. :(
*Well, he was on call, but never got called in. YAY!
*A hot bubble bath that isn't interrupted by children either needing to go potty or looking to join me in the tub.
*Never did take a long, hot bubble bath.
*A yummy alcoholic beverage.
*Nope, no alcoholic beverage.
*New bathroom towels. Heck, make that a new bathroom. :)
*We did go shopping for new bathroom towels, but didn't buy any because they all sucked. So we went off to The Home Depot and priced out a whole new bathroom for *hopefully* the not so distant future. :)
*More sleep.....sweet, uninterrupted sleep.
*Sammy got up to feed Molly at 6 and she fell back asleep....granting us 2 1/2 more hours of sleep!
*Sunshine and warm weather. Perfect for frolicking around outside having a dandy 'ol time!
*The weather was FANTASTIC!!! Sunny and low 70's! We went on a hike and I was able to take some photos! It was awesome!
*No sick kiddos and no sick Mama.....can we lick these colds by then? *sigh* I hope!!
*Anthony and I aren't sick anymore, but poor little Molly still has her cold. At least it hasn't been as bad.
*Cake. Or brownies....or ice cream, etc. ;)
*Lets just say my man is the BEST ever! He surprised me with an ice cream cake from DQ!!!! Now wasn't I just talking about how I love the crumblies!!!? YUM!
*No laundry, no dishes, no sweeping, no vacuuming.
*I didn't do any laundry, nor sweeping, nor vacuuming. But I did wash a few dishes. Hubby did 90% of the dishes. ;)
*A big 'ol hug and kiss from my babies and hubby.
*Check and check!!
*A day off from diaper changing duty and potty escort duty.
* Ok, so I only did about 50% of the diaper changing. And I did have a big stinker of a one. But 50% is better than 100%! LOL
*A full body massage with lavender oil.
*Sadly, no. Though Sammy says he was thinking about it the whole day (course he was, haha).
*No meltdowns, only laughter and smiles (totally wishful thinking!! haha).
*Hmmm...maybe only a handful of little meltdowns? :) The kiddos were extremely good up until Home Depot. Then they got antsy. Ah well!
*Breakfast in bed. Pancakes, please!
* I didn't eat in bed, but I did have a scrumptious pancake breakfast! Along with hash browns and little smokies. Delicious.
Yes, I had a fantastic Mothers Day! Sammy took some pictures of me and the kids for me. They turned out sweet. :)
We've always loved hiking, but haven't been able to get out and do it much lately. So I was stoked we went for a hike yesterday! Not very far, just a ways in the woods from our house and then over to visit our neighbors. Anthony loves looking at their horses. On our hike I was able to take some great photos of some flowers (I'm saving these photos for My Photo Tuesday tomorrow!!!) and the kids.
After our hike, we had a PB&J lunch. Yummy! LOL Then we hopped in the car and hit the road for a leisurely drive down this one back country road. It was beautiful. The kids fell asleep so we jumped out and were able to take a few more photos. We ended up at Home Depot where we fawned over new bathroom things and mentally added them to our wish list. Fun!
The day was topped off with a card from my hubby, a card from my kiddos, and a surprise ice cream cake from DQ! SWEET!!
I am one lucky Mama! :)
