Mothers Day is my new FAVORITE holiday!!!!

Holy Cow, what a weekend! I have to say that my boys went above and beyond this year and it was awesome. It started on Friday night when John and I were able to go the temple (shocker I know-no sick kids!) Then Saturday at 10:30 I left the house for a day of pampering! My parents had called Friday night and told me to go get a manicure and pedicure from them for Mothers Day so I started with that. Then went over to the salon/spa and got my hair cut and highlighted and a few other things done. Here's my new hair... I came home right before John left to pick up some babysitters because we were having a game night with some friends. So it was a very relaxing and fun Saturday.

Sunday morning started with the alarm going off at 6:30 and I just about killed John. I finally found the alarm clock where it was hidden and he sent me to do some "chores." It was more like a compliment scavenger hunt where he said nice things that led me from clue to clue. See that clue that has a little bit it attached to it...yes, that I had to pull off the back of Davis' diaper while he was sleeping and not wake him up! It was so hard but thankfully Davis had positioned himself bottom up in the air by the side of the crib. I ended up in the pantry where there were these beautiful flowers. Thankfully I went back to bed only to be woken up at 8:00 with my favorite breakfast in bed. He makes the best pancakes and puts almond extract in whipping cream and wraps the whipping cream up it the pancakes and then loads the top with fresh strawberries. We first had these at the Maltby Cafe in Seatlle but they changed their cream freche and so I have to say that Johns are now BETTER than the Maltby Cafe! I got to read in bed and play handheld Yahtzee for a while. We went for a walk, I got to read more and take my time getting ready for church. It was wonderful. Only to come home from church and have the boys make me my favorite dinner, pesto gnocchi and rosemary polenta! I didn't have to lift a finger and went to bed with a clean house! Seriously boys....thank you for the best weekend ever! I wont ever forget it!

Cute hair! And cute kids too! You have an awesome family!

SLO Rober said...

I like your hair. Well done John. You have some serious issues sending your wife into a sleeping kids room to pull off diaper scraps. I'm so boring as I just let Kate sleep in!

Wow! You really got pampered. It sounds like it was a great day.

Lisa- you have good looking toes! I would never post a picture of my club feet! Also... I just had my hair cut today and it is the SAME as your. No joking. Brian asked if I copied you!

That sounds like a great Mother's day weekend (except for the 6:30am wake up call). Love the hair and toes.

You make a mama proud of you! I have to say you have the most beautiful toes. I wonder where you got them, it wasn't from me! Glad you liked our Mother's day gift.
