Mother's Day Weekend

This weekend began early for me with a Mother's Day party at Ian's preschool. There we had cupcakes and punch. I opened a gift Ian made me, a painted flowerpot, and then planted flowers they had for us to plant.

On Saturday we planted our gardens. Behind our house, in a flower bed I've never used, we planted tomatoes and peppers. I'm curious to see how well that will work out. We met Marlena and Noah later on at the church plot to plant the rest of the loot (zucchini, sweet potatoes, peas, beans, onions, broccoli, and lettuce). Annaliese and Walter did a great job entertaining themselves on their blankets. Marlena pointed out how some may think it's interesting that Annaliese had a blue blanket and Walter a pink one. We were just glad they brought toys, as we weren't that prepared...

The actual Mother's Day wasn't that much different than any other day. Darrin gave me tickets to see Wicked. Aside from the flower from Ian's preschool, I got another flower from Sunday School, painted hand prints with poems from both of their day cares, and a plaster hand print of Ian from Sunday school.

It was National Scrapbooking Day on Saturday, and I finished my first scrapbooking page since... November, or possibly even before that. I ended up making three pages, and now I'm on a roll and don't want to stop.

I didn't think Ian could get any cuter, but his interview is hilarious and adorable!

And the picture of Annaliese with her hat, sunglasses, sippy and her little belly hanging out is SO cute!
