Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and future moms out there. Perry and I are both blessed to have wonderful moms so Happy Mother's Day to both of our moms.

Mother's Day used to be a very difficult day for me back before we had kids (but wanted kids). So, those of you on that long road to motherhood, celebrate your strength in enduring the long journey.

So how are we celebrating? We've all been feel under the weather for about 2 weeks and the weather is just nasty today, so we're skipping church and spending some much needed family time inside. We'll head over to my Mom's to for a Mother's Day/April/May birthday combo celebration (it hasn't quite dawned on Elise that SHE will be receiving gifts today).

My wonderful hubby got me this romantic gift! Before you rag on him, this is what I asked him to get for me :) We have a BIG yard with 6 acres of woods behind us and a 5 acre horse pasture in front of us so bugs can be an annoying problem. I love my new bug zapper, honey! Maybe we'll enjoy a few more romantic evenings outside without me slapping myself silly to get the bugs away.

Happy Mother's Day Gretchen!!

As for Perry's gift to you, I think it's great. I'm not one of those women who need diamonds & jewelry. One year David bought me an adding machine. Hey! It was what I wanted. That's what I call romantic - being heard.
