HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!

Happy Mothers Day!!!
Wouldn't it be nice if it was actually, Happy Woman's Day??? All females aren't mothers or wives. But we're all WOMEN!!! :-) Just a thought!
Anyway, I just wanted to share the wonderful day I had today. We got up early this morning to get ready for church. My DH handed the kids their respective Mothers Day cards and both of them raced to give me their card first. Needless to say, both of the cards from the kids were adorable and I love to see their cute little "signatures" on stuff. The card from my DH was beautiful. I love him!!!
After getting my DD and myself ready, I went downstairs to wish my MIL a happy day. She came out of her room, gave me a big hug and led me to the kitchen table. On the table were 2 little red boxes. She told me that the gifts were from her and my DH. (I noticed the 2 of them were being a little sneaky and whispering earlier last week...smile). Well, they bought me 2 beautiful pairs of earrings from Talbots. Mom and I saw one pair about a month ago and I just made a comment of how pretty I thought they were and that I might come back and get them one day. I guess over time, I forgot about them. But she didn't! She told my DH about them and he picked them up at the store near his office. I thought that was just the sweetest thing ever. I even took off the earrings I already had on just so I could wear my new pink ones :-).
After Sunday school, we picked up my DD from her class. She's normally very excited to see us when we pick her up. But this time, she seemed even more so. Reason being, she had made me a sweet little bracelet out of wooden beads. She was elated when I put it on right then and there. It was very cute and I was excited that she was so excited. She wanted me to show EVERYONE my new "jewelry". After church service, we met my SIL at Kobe Steaks, a Japanese restaurant(www.kobesteaks.net). It was so delicious and very entertaining. The host even gave all the mothers a long stem rose as we entered the restaurant. Have you ever seen kids try and use chop sticks? Too funny!!!


My new earrings and bracelet.

My beautiful rose.

The onion "volcano".

Don't remember what this was, I think it was the shrimp :-). Just thought the flames were pretty.

And lastly, orange sherbert ice cream for dessert.

What a wonderful day. I hope everyone who reads this had a great day too. And again, for all you ladies out there...Happy Woman's Day!!
