My Mother's Day actually started on Wednesday when I received this in the mail:
I haven't had too much time to play with it, was pretty busy this week, like any other week I guess. I did take it with us on Friday when we went on the 100-mile Thrift Sales, but we were too busy getting in and out of the truck for me to do much with it. And no, I haven't downloaded any books yet, I'm working on it! I did get a couple games tho for free that I played on Friday.
My Mother's Day continued yesterday when we went to Eau Claire to run a couple errands. Corey and the boys went into Best Buy while Paige and I went into TJ Maxx to shop around. We picked up a Mother's Day present from the kids for Corey's Mom, and I also got Paige a new pair of flip flops and some new nail polish for her and the girls to use.
After that excursion, we found the boys in Best Buy yet and got the truck keys from Corey so we didn't have to lug around the stuff from TJ Maxx. He quickly hid his hands behind his back and said it was my Mother's Day present and then gave me the keys.
Paige and I went out to the truck to wait, and the thought crossed my mind to call my mom and see if she had gotten the Mother's Day stuff I mailed on Thursday. She answered and said she had just opened it. Good timing, no? Must be that link that we share, I dunno. Must be psychic abilities? Possible. Luck? Very probable. She said she loved it, which made me happy. She also told me what my dad had gotten her for Mother's Day and how he gave it to her. All I have to say is "Go Dad!" Can't wait to see pictures Mom!
After the boys finally came out, I was given my Mother's Day present. I already knew what it was, but I wasn't sure what it would look like. I will show a picture of that in a minute.
We were all getting hungry so we went to Fazolli's and ate, then headed to Menards for Corey to get a few things for here and there.
When we got back to Eau Galle, we went to Corey's Mom's to he and the kids could give her her Mother's Day present and card. She loved it also, which made us double happy :-) Paige and I did good apparently.
Once we got home, I opened up my Mother's Day present. I love it!
Just as I was about to start screaming, he put something around my neck.
I was told the Kindle Cover was from all the kids and the necklace was from him.
This morning I also got to get my girls for Mother's Day. I met Andy in Elmwood as usual and got the girls at 8:00 this morning. Normally he has them Friday thru Monday during the school year, except one weekend a month, but since it's my holiday, I got to have them. Love it.
When we got home, Alexis gave me this that she made in school for me.
The girls got to see Paige, Brady and Walker for a little bit before their mom came to get them at 8:30. After that, I took a shower, got a couple things done, then the girls and I went off shopping. I got Alexis a pair of flip flops and Kayla got some crocs because we couldn't find any flip flops in her size. Darn it. Oh well, she's happy with her purple crocs and Alexis is happy with her pink camoflauge flip flops.
The girls also got me these at the store, with their own money.
Then the girls went outside to play while I put the groceries away. I got a couple cute shots of them before it started raining.
I would say my Mother's Day has been pretty eventful. I loved every minute of it, and now it's back to the norm. Got tons of laundry to get put away, including all the stuff we got on Friday, which is currently being washed and there's still a mountain on the floor waiting for an open spot in the machine.
I hope you all had as wonderful of a Mother's Day as I have! Feel free to share it with me in the comments, I love reading about other people's days! :-)
