For me, Mother's Day actually began on Thursday when both kids brought me home an entire cake (each) from school. Such a sweet gesture! One of our local grocery stores provided the cakes and the kids got to decorate them.
Sunday, since Joey had to work, I took the kids to my parents and celebrated with them and my brother and his family. My dad and brother were so great! They cooked the entire meal by themselves (brisket, homemade scalloped potatoes, and salad!) and the moms didn't have to lift a finger. It was great!
For my mom, my brother and I bought her a "mom" charm, along with two separate charms - one with my birthstone and one with his. She loves it!
The kids were very thoughtful and I had several handmade cards. I always love the handmade things they bring me on special days. (The Target gift card wasn't bad either.)
(Don't you just love Taylor's smile? He's so silly!)
Later that evening, after Joey got home from work, we took his mom to dinner. We got her a similar charm to my mom's, but hers said "Mimi" and had Ashton and Taylor's names around the outside of the circle. It's super cute!
And I absolutely love this pic of Joey and his mom.
I'd say it was a successful day, although it will take some getting used to with Joey working on holidays. I missed him!
