Mother's Day 2013

I got lucky with Mother's Day this year - the kids' celebrations started 2 hours apart, and I was able to be at both!

I drove up to Halliburton first to have lunch with Miles.  He loved eating in a room other than his classroom, and loved holding my hand while we went to get our food.

When I left there, I drove to Gisèle's elementary school, where the entire kindergarten had prepared a day of pampering for all of the moms (or grandmas, aunts, etc.).  Each of the four classroom was set up with a theme: the first was the hair and makeup room (we brought our own supplies); the second was prepared for manicures and pedicures; the third contained all the supplies to make a beautiful bracelet; and the fourth had dimmed lights, scented lotion, and magazines so that we could relax while our kindergarteners rubbed out shoulders, hands, etc.

In preparation for our spa day, I had taken Gisèle to the store where I allowed her to pick out the perfect shade of eye shadow, blush, lip gloss, and nail polish to put on me.  She chose a white-silver-black shadow palette, and dark pink, sparkly blush, a bright pink, glittery lip gloss, and frog green nail polish.  Beautiful!

Gisèle did a fabulous job on my makeup, hair (she sprayed glitter spray in it), nails, and massage.  She took it all very seriously, and I loved every minute of it.

The picture she drew is of us picking apples.  So I guess one day we should go apple picking!

All About My Mom

My Mom is "50" years old.
She is "25" feet, "30" inches tall and weighs "90" pounds.
She is prettiest when she "is outside."
She likes to eat "cornbread."
She usually shops at "Target" for "food."
Her favorite TV show is "cooking shows."
She is afraid of "fire."
I like it when we "go to gymnastics" together.
My Mom's the best "chef" there ever was.
I "love" her!
"Love, Gisèle"


I love my mom because
"she is swet and you are a grat cook!"
({She is sweet and you are a great cook!})

One of the sweetest things about Mother's Day this year was that Gisèle and Miles tapped into their piggy banks to pool their quarters and buy me a Starbucks drink.  They each get a quarter every day if they've had good behavior and listening both at school and at home (and Miles has had no accidents).  They average 4-5 quarters a week, and contributed 9 quarters each for the drink.  So basically, my sweet children each spent an entire paycheck on me for Mother's Day!  They went into the store to buy it, and I wish I could have seen the barista's face when they ordered (with Jamie's help, of course) and then paid in quarters.

 I also received a beautiful bouquet of roses from Jamie as well as a gift certificate to Sur La Table, an awesome kitchen supply store.  I am blessed!
