Mothers Day

SPT This week is something new, and I am glad it was after mother's day! Our family had a great Mother's day Since both my mom, and my mother in law live only minutes away it is sometimes hard to decide where to spend our time on special occasions. This year we decided that we would host a meal for each. When I got up I was expecting to go and get started on breakfast for my mother in law when I found this on the counter.
I love my husband, and the small things he does, it's the note that always makes me melt. so my day started off with my something new, a new watch! it was much needed. here has my last 3 watches
the middle one is the most recent, and the face plate is broken, and the band does not stay done up as well. I love my new watch!

Then we went on with breakfast for my mother in law, but my husband took charge, and I got to sit and enjoy
I didn't get a picture of breakfast, but Jordan made eggs Benedict (with homemade hollandaise sauce) and it was delicious. Our gift to her was the decorated paint can in the middle of the table. I made pampering kit's which I filled with fun little pampering things for her.

Unfortunately we had another meal to do that day for my mom, so as soon as we were finished with one we were working on the other. I must have been too busy with dinner to take any pictures, because I do not have a single one of my mom yesterday.
I made my mom a pampering kit as well, and helped one of my brother with the flowers in a vase full of Jelly beans.

Jordan and I stuffed and put on the turkey, peeled and cut potatoes, and then rushed to get our family ready for church. afterwards we raced home to finish dinner off with Yorkshires, gravy, broccoli and cheese sauce, and the cheese cake that my brother had brought over. Dinner was delicious, and then all of the men in my life (I have 4 brothers) cleaned up while my mom and I talked. It was a busy, but wonderful day!

Great mother's day! I could use a new watch too, but the one I have I bought on our honeymoon, so I don't want to replace it, as much as it needs replacing!
