There is something so sweet about a kid getting to make their parents a present, and its extra special when their school helps them make something, so it can be a surprise! Lila made this at her school as a surprise for me for Mother's Day! The best part was her waking up on Sunday morning, coming into the room and saying "Happy Mother's Day Mom!" before I could say anything. I think this might be the first holiday she has remembered on her own without being reminded!
Then she ran to her backpack and pulled out this handmade surprise!
Then Mike went out to "get a monster," his preferred energy drink, before church, and he came back with these beautiful flowers! It was such a wonderful surprise! He always picks out the prettiest arrangements for me, and he always gets a nice vase that I get to add to my collection.
Mike's normally not a card-getter, especially since I make them, but he said this one reminded him of me, and it is totally my style! This definitely had me tearing up! :)
After church we went over to my parent's house for some vegan grilling!
We grilled a ton of potatoes, corn on the cob, and a veggie mix of peppers, onions, mushrooms and zucchini. Mike ran the grill while Lila and I picked dandelions!
How did you spend your Mother's Day?
