It was such a wonderful Mother's day today! I got donuts in the morning, with Starbuck's coffee, we took flowers to Barb's gravesite, lunch was my choice (Taco Cabana because we were pushing it with the girls' naptimes, it was a grab-n-go type situation), and dinner at La Madeline! I made the girls some ruffle pants and embelished some shirts to go with them and they wore them for me today!! The girls gave me a sweet card (which Kyndall signed in her own version of her name) and a whole sample package of teas and coffees from the Coffee Beanery. I also got a clear teapot because some of my tea was the flowering kind. That is where it starts out as a little ball of dried up looking grass and when you put it in the teapot of hot water it opens up into a pretty flower and great tasting tea. So we made a pot and cleaned out Kyndall's tea set and all had a family tea party in our pjs before bedtime! This was the most fun Mother's day yet:) I especially enjoyed Kyndall telling me Happy Valentine's Day over and over again all day (instead of Happy mother's day)....could 2 year olds be any cuter? I think not.... Oh and she also wants to know when "Big girl's Day" is...anyone know? Maybe I'll just tell her what my parents told me, "Everyday is Big girl's day". Happy Mother's day to all my friends who are mothers and especially to my sweet Mom, Grammie Lawrence, and Grammy Garth! You all have been the most loving Christian influences in my life and I am so blessed that you have taught me everything I know....Love you
The girls peeking out the window together...so cute:) This is the back of the outfits that I made them:
This morning we took some flowers to Barb's grave (Jim's mom) we lost her last May 14th and it was Jim's first Mother's Day without her. We love her forever....and miss her everyday
My loot: Jim is holding my array of different tea bags, to the left is a basket full of different coffees, and in front is a new clear teapot holding one of my 12 new flowering teas. I came home from the Lavendar Tea Room with Grammie one time and told him how cool the flowering tea they had was, and he remembered...how sweet is that??
Pretty cool huh!! This is the "flowering" tea inside the clear teapot I got! Now ready for a toddler size tea party!!
