and the rain came down

The rain came down all week-end and so did my tears! Tears of joy though.

Started off Friday morning with the twins at their school. What could be better than having your breakie served by two adorable and proud preschoolers? They had set up tables complete with silverware and porcelain tea cups and hand-made flowers in vases and helped in the food preparation. They presented us with hand-written menus, we made our selections and off they went to fill up our plates with goodies. Their pride and joy in this special event for moms and grandmas and the hugs I received from them brought tears to my eyes.

And so did all these other precious little treasures that they made me for Mother's day. Such great presents:

--a life-size painting of themselves

--butterflies for the fridge

--cards signed with their hand prints

--hand-made flowers from the twins and a card from big sis which contained a poem that she wrote which really, really tugged at my heartstrings and my tear ducts

--breakie in bed on Mother's Day morning served by my 3 beautiful children. I kept telling them how if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be celebrating this day which they made even more special.

We then got all dressed up, went to hubby's golf clubhouse for brunch (my big perk for his hours on the golf course)along with my parents. Then off to some friends house for some R&R and back home to watch lots of TV. A perfect relaxing day filled with people I love and lots of hugs and kisses.

Sounds like it was the perfect Mother's Day weekend. The twins school is really great to have a breakfast for you. And all the treats and treasures they made for you complete with breakfast in bed. What a great day.

Happy Mother's Day
