For Mother's Day this year, Eleanor started the gift-giving early. She waited until 4:00 to wake me up. To those of you who haven't had a newborn baby, that might not seem like much of a gift. But I was tremendously happy to have over five hours of continuous sleep.
A few hours later Brandon got out of bed and I went back to sleep. A few hours after that, I had breakfast in bed: crepes, fresh whipped cream, berries, nutella, and créme anglaise. Then in church all of the ladies were given Cadbury chocolate bars.
Then after dinner (BLTs, french fries, and pineapple), the children brought out a card and cookies they had picked out for me. They couldn't hide the flowers until this evening, so the flowers were given yesterday.
So I think I can say that I had a very pleasant Mother's Day. But of all of the gifts, my favorite gift of all was the five beautiful children that have made me a mother.
