Mother's Day

My Mother's Day Pictures.
The morning started off with breakfast being served in bed by my NON-cooker (River). It was a delicious breakfast sandwich with a hot cup of coffee. Once the boys had been told that all was clear, (Mama was up), the festivities began.

The boys all huddled together outside my bedroom door, whispering and laughing with excitement. I have to admit I was anxious to see what all the hub bub was about. No sooner did I question the thought in my mind and in came the brood.

Upon entering, they all proudly brought me this small silver bag. The first thing that caught my eye was the ribbon that they were all wanting me to wear that said "Mom to Be". Den stopped drinking his coffee and said, "Boys, your mom isn't a mother-to-be anymore." Isaiah said, "Ohhhh that's what it meant." I giggled and pushed passed it quickly as to not dwell on the negative. I knew that Den was questioning all my homeschooling skills as he continued to shake his head in disbelief.

When I grabbed the bag it was a little worse for wear. In fact it looked like they had nabbed the poor bag from a pitbull (Roman) just before entering my bedroom. I, again, overlooked the bag and began to pull the tissue paper out of the top.

This is when I discovered that the tissue paper was indeed tissue paper, or some call it "toilet" paper. I giggled at their creativity and quickly yanked it all out. Upon which I found a chewed up piece of pink gum stuck to the end of it. I again chuckled and tried to overlook it. Den, however, looked a little mortified.....lol.

The boys began chanting, "Read the card! Read the card!" So I paused to find the little silver card that was attached to the bag and when I opened it it said, "Hey!" with a scribbly smiley face. I truly didn't know what to say, but I did laugh heartily at this point.

After digging through some old Easter candy that wasn't even good enough for the children to eat, I found my gift. A bottle of travel size shampoo that had been rolling around my bathroom drawer for sometime. A little speechless I said, "Well thanks guys!" They kept a stiff upper lip (just like their mama would have) and all went on about how much they loved me and disappeared. This is when Den said, "What the heck?" I just laughed and said, "It was sweet!"

This is when the REAL gifts came in. These are River's.

Isaiah's. He is my sock giver...hehehe

Levi's. They all wanted me to put on the lipstick, which I did, and then they all laughed and laughed at the color....so I don't think I will be wearing that one.....lol.

Abram's sweet little gift too!

Den's roses that he gives without fail. I love my boys, and I honestly had a great Mother's Day. However, truthfully, I can say that my favorite was the first gift. I giggled and giggled at the genius of it all. You know it's all in the presentation people. You can tell that they are listening to Mama!

Okay, I was laughing thru the entire post. Where do I begin. I know those men of ours so well. Den thinking your homeschooling skills had gone bad, with the ribbon, mother to be. rofl And your card that just said, Hey! rofl
Those boys have our humor all the way! But I must admit, because you have all boys, I wondered if they were being serious. Great Mother's Day. And I want to see the shade of lipstick they picked out!

How awesome. I can't beleive that your boys are so good at picking girl gifts. They will make wonderful boyfriends, then husbands. My family isn't so good at the presentation. Guess that I'll have to try a little harder to get that instilled.

Fifi said...

That is so funny!Your boys are such tricksters! I love that!
I must admit I was getting worried as the first present unfolded!!!!!!teehee!
You deserve to be so spoilt!

How fun! I love a good sense of humor!!

(...but I should also say that I love gifts like the first one...I've had a few of those in years past from my sweet kiddoes who didn't have any spending money! Those are some of my best memories!)

Your crew is so thoughtful! Glad they took such good care of you!

Your boys are very cleaver. How funny to give you a gag gift then bring in the real deal. Lovely gifts. I'm glad you had a great day.

What a sweet bunch of guys you have!

I LOVE it. Leave to boys to tease their Mamma like that. That would NEVER happen in my house. My two oldest are girls and would have a fit. They keep everything quite "civil" around here. Too bad eh?
Chocolate... NICE. I told everyone no edible gifts on mothers day.. NO breakfast in bed, No chocolate.... (Didn't want to cheat on the "diet"), but in reality, by 3:00 (that's when my resolve ends) I was wishing for a big chocolate bar.
Great blog. I'm having a blast reading it!
