So I know a lot of you were concerned that your dh's would not get you anything for M's day, so I am curious how it all ended up for you? What did you end up getting or doing (since that could be more important )
I'll go first....I already told you that I got 2 new crock pots (from taking my class), and then I got breakfast in bed (this is a new treat since on all past mother's day...my dh was already at meetings at church, so that wasn't possible), then they all gave me the supplies to get started on making jewelry...like tools, storage, and gift certificate to the bead store. My first project will be matching bracelets for my girls and I, and I think I would like to make a mother's bracelet w/ all my kids birthstones in it. That is what we are giving my mom as a late Mother's day gift. It has her birthstone, my sis and I, and all 10 grandkids. I am soo excited!
Ok, so who is next??

I'll go next since I was going to post on this anyways!!
DH went over and above all expectations..and made me cry twice!
So, Friday was the shopping trip and he told me I would be shopping for my own gift for Mom's day. I let him know that I was dissapointed because I thought he should put a little more effort into it. So...it kind of brought down the day a bit...but of course got some shopping in. We didn't find anything for Mom's day for me that day. Well, on Saturday...I got a beautiful card about growing and nuturing...and inside DH wrote....Mommy..join us for a day of picking out a special plant...when you look at it..always remember we are growing just as the plant will grow..(Not exact words..his were much better) So...I cried! Well, then yesterday I got a Isabel bloom from him and the kids...so special! Then his card made me cry...he wrote how even though he never tells me so...that I make everything work for this family and he notices all the things I do to make things happy for our family...So...then I cried again!!
It turned out to be the best Mother's Day ever for me! (Well...this was the first!)

I didn't get to sleep in either. Dh was sick so I got up with the babies and to get ready for our cook out. When he got up later they gave me a sappy card about how much I do for the family to take care of everyone and how he appreciates it. I go a photo frame that has openings that spell family and the neatest story book/scrapbook that he had made on shutterfly. It has pictures of me pregnant, my stretch marks, and then several pages of the babies. He did such a great job with the journaling that I started crying about 1/2 way through. He put a lot of thought into that book. I love it.

No sleeping in, but that was by my choice. Dh was trying to wake up and go to him, but I was wide awake and thinking, "Hey, I want to spend my first MD morning with ds. " So I went into him, and we nursed and played and had a grand ol' time . . . until he had yet ANOTHER runny diaper. (poor kid!) That resulted in another morning bath.
I had to wake him from his nap to get him ready for church, and there on his changing pad was a charm necklace with a little boy birthstone charm for me. There was also a card from ds that ds had signed. (Dh said it was a horrendous thing to try to get R to cooperate---all he wanted to do was chew on the envelope, LOL!)
We had dinner out with my IL's---dh's dad and step-mom (not the sneaky cake-feeders, LOL!), one of his two brothers, and his grandma.
It wasn't quite a perfect day . . . dh and I had a "tiff" over the whole cake-feeding thing, and then I awakened at 1:20 AM with what appears to be food poisoning. I still don't dare wander too far from a bathroom . . . NOT how I'd envisioned spending this day off. *sigh*
Oh, well . . . it was an awesome first MD, until the food poisoning part . . .

We had the BEST day!!
M slept late which was so nice because Dh and I never get mornings alone anymore. We just sat on the patio with coffee and talked. When M woke up I took her for a walk and when I got back there was a bag with balloons tied to it in my living room. Dh bought me the most stunning ring. I was floored becasue he is not a jewelry buyer at all! He had it designed a few months ago. It has M's birthstone in the middle with a scroll of diamonds on each side. It is gorgeous!!
A few hours later, our families showed up for a bbq. My mom and sis brought me three pots of tulips (my fav!) and my MIL brought me roses. The day was the perfect. Better than perfect!!

We had a wonderful morning. DH tried to get up with MAckenzie but she wanted Mommy. And then off to church she and I went. DH got me a necklace with a love pendant and a 1/2 heart that says Mother and my stepdaughter has the daughter one. Then we went out for a drive and stopped by my friends mother's house. And brought her flowers (My Best friend passed away 2 yrs ago) and then we went to my mother's house and hung out there for a while.

Still on a High from Mother's day
We woke up with the babes at 6am to get everyone ready for our walk. The kids each gave me a card... so cute Jack also gave me a card with beautiful words. I cried with each card... I guess with my sweaty eyes this isn't a shock.
We did the Breast Cancer Race for the Cure in the AM (My Mom will be a 2 yr survivor on 6/14) After the walk, we had my family back to our house and Jack made brunch. He did the menu so I was very surprised to see croissants in the mix...LOL!!! While, we were waiting for Jack to make brunch, I had so many goodies to open!!! It was like Xmas AM. My Mom told me later she was afraid Jack was going to bomb out on my 1st Mom' Day so she wanted to be sure it was special. My Mom gave me the coolest presents. She gave me a beautiful frame that has Our Mommy's 1st Mother's Day on it. She also gave me a frame with 2 baby booties that says Twice As Nice (she picked this up 1st then found the other frame). I love them both! Then, she had my fav candies- swedish fish, dark chocolate non-parils (sp?), caramels and a cookie that says "Sweet Mom" on it. Then, she gave me beautiful pj's from Pajamagram, note cards and address labels that have cartoon characters for each of us and out 1st name under each person... and The M.... Family at the top....LOVE this!!!! Is she crazy or what!!!! We just kept crying b/c I was so happy to finally be able to celebrate MD as a Mommy and she was so happy for me.
Jack did great, too (thanks to Brooke's suggestion to give the kids a wish list). He gave me a pretty lily bouquet, Super Mom pjs (these are really funny- I look like Wonder Woman with white starred blue pants and a red top with Super Mom! He also gave me a necklace with a pink sapphire and blue sapphire in the rectangle... it's like the stones are placed inside an open rectangular bar. Even though I gave him a wish list, the pjs and the jewelry were not specified so I think I will definitely use this wish list technique again Then he can use the wish list and put a little thought into it.
I also got an awesome homemade card from my brother who lives in CA. He is never on time for anything so I was so touched he even remembered me let alone acknowledge me on MD... I cried. I also cried when my sister gave me a card that read To My Sister on her 1st MD. She just laughed at me. Oh well, I cried a lot yesterday but all joyful tears.
Jack took me and the kids to our local watering hole for dinner and the waitress wished me a Happy 1st MD... and my sweaty eyes appeared again.
I guess I am so touched by people acknowledging me being a Mom and also being able to celebrate being a Mom.Me 39, DH 41, married 9/22/01

I got to have everyone help with Muffin all day whenever I wanted a break,
took a gorgeous walk around the lake at the state park,
yummy wine on the new deck in the freezing night air
got to organize my photos, and read all morning
and had a lovely mess to clean today from everyone "taking care of getting their own food" yesterday

I didn't sleep in as DH worked until 2:00 am. It really didn't matter to me as I can't seem to sleep late anymore. DH got me two beautiful cards, one from him and one from A. DH and DD got me a spa package! He said that I need some pampering. DH also had done all of the shopping for our cookout and all of the cooking. My MIL got me flowers and a nice card which she wrote some nice things and thanking me for sharing Mother's Day with her. We were outside playing and our neighbors dog came running over. Our neighbor looked so sad - her kids didn't even call her - they are adults with kids of there own (although they will call her when they need a babysitter). We ended up inviting her to our cookout. It was a great day!
