I had a fabulous Mother's Day. Dana took the girls shopping and they each picked out some jewelry for me. Aiyana got me turquoise gem earrings and a very fancy disco ball looking necklace encrusted in a rainbow of gems. Clara got me a cream and brass colored chunky necklace and a mustard beaded bracelet with rhinestones (as seen in the picture below).
We spent the evening at my mom's house and had tacos for dinner.
Aiyana also planted a flower seed for me at school. I gave her a hug for the thoughtful card and gift and we both bumped arms and knocked the dirt out of the pot :o(. I don't know if we managed to collect the seed, but we sure tried. The dirt and, hopefully, the seed are re-planted in a new pot at home. The whole incident reminded me of the time I tried to leave flowers on the porch for my mom on a windy day. I had made a basket of flowers at school and I was SO excited to surprise my mom with them. I got off of the school bus and held on tight to my basket/flower creation until I got to the front door of our house. I set them on the porch with pride and knocked on the door, Then I ran to the side of the house. The next thing I knew... My handmade flowers were blowing everywhere. I remember my mom opening the door to me crying and there was nothing left on the porch. I'll have to ask her if she remembers that?
Clara painted a sandstone pot for me at preschool and planted a dainty little flower in it. It is super cute. Both pots sit on the kitchen window seal. I have such wonderful daughters. I am so blessed.
