Mother's Day

Today has been wonderful. I woke up to wonderful gifts from all the kids, including something from Penelope. Gary only bought me a card, but it's the thought that counts. I think he was a little upset that the kids outdid him on the gifts, but I told him not to worry about it.

Everyone got me flowers. . . .

And here's the loot:

Gary explained why everyone got me the kids they did. Piper bought me a new iPod because she likes listening to The White Stripes -- my 5 or 6-year-old iPod very recently died after a long sickness, so I was thrilled to see a new iPod. Henry bought me an external harddrive because my recent freakouts have been related the possibility of losing our photos despite our current backup plan, so this will help me sleep better. Rosemary bought me Photoshop Elements because she wants to look even prettier in my pictures of her. And Penelope bought me a 4 leaf clover necklace because we have so many things in "threes" and she wants to remind me that soon we're going to be dealing in "fours"!

I had a great Mother's Day, but then every day with our family is great, so that wasn't much of a surprise!

Sounds like a great Mother's Day! Looks like the kids really put a lot of thought into the perfect Mother's Day gifts for you! They are all adorable and very lucky to have you as their mommy!
