Mother’s Day was absolutely perfect! Hannah woke me with a sweet ‘Happy Mother’s Day!’ shortly after 7am. She had created a scavenger hunt by hiding cards and gifts around the house the day before so our day began with a fun little hunt.
First I was asked to stay in bed while she ran to her toy room. She then began to ask the spelling of words which I provided, all the while wondering what the treat that she was working on would look like. She ran in and ‘hid’ it under a pillow but still insisted I play the ‘hot and cold’ game to find it. Mommy’s acting skills came in handy as I looked in all the wrong places first. Here is her sweet note:
(LOL! This one you have to read by wrapping up at the end. ‘I’m thankful for you Mommy that all that you do so hug me and kiss me.’ SO precious!!)
After this I found a gift in my closet before we moved to downstairs. This sweet little box held a bracelet she had made, a bead tied with a ribbon, 4 paperclips in Canadian colours as we prepare to cheer on team Canada during the Pan Am games plus some of her Easter chocolates.
She also made this adorable little container that we have already decided we will use to save coins for our September Disney trip.
After church we shared a quiet afternoon at home together which doesn’t happen often and we both drank it in. For supper we met my mom and dad at our traditional Mother’s Day dinner location and enjoyed a wonderful evening together!
