Mom's Day

My girls and me

First off, congratulations to Tamara for winning the $10 gift card in the Spring Blog Carnival hop I participated in last week. I appreciated all the participants who left a comment. The winner was chosen using

I hope everyone had a fabulous Mother's Day! Although I was a bit under the weather it was still a fun day. The best part was that I had the day off at church. Being Primary president usually makes for busy Sundays, but yesterday the priesthood took over. One of the bishopric counselors even told me from the podium in sacrament meeting not to go and check up on Primary, but really he did not have to worry about it. I was too intent on enjoying my time off!

Other good parts of my mom's day:
  • A NAP!
  • Visiting with friends in RS while eating cheesecake. (Loved seeing you there, too, Nancy.)
  • My dh and the kids made frozen pizzas after church so I did not have to make dinner.
  • Went to visit my mom and we had fun talking and then watched the season finale of The Amazing Race.
  • Getting another gasoline gift card--thanks Mom and Dad (I have been collecting these for all the holidays and my anniversary since the beginning of the year to make sure I can take the kids on a good summer vacation).

Hopefully your day was as fun as mine!

Scripture of the Day: Jacob 5:27


  1. Beautiful picture of you and your girls. Glad you had a happy Mother's Day. --Nice scripture.

  2. Your day sounds wonderful. Our ward was a bit different. They gave a great little gift to the mom's, and we had a sweet musical number by the YW, but the primary kids did not sing (they forgot to practice a song) and there were NO talks on motherhood. I couldn't believe that!! Our bishopric has 18 kids between them! I think they should really appreciate motherhood. The men did not take over the church callings either and there was no cheesecake in RS or even mention of mother's day. I have no idea why.

    BUT, my family did a great job. My husband and daughter made a great breakfast and a delicious dinner and gave sweet gifts. So--it was a good day.

    I am glad your day was so nice and that you got a nap!! How great is that!

  3. You sound as if you had as great a day as I did. The napping was one of my favorite parts of the day.

  4. I just wanted to say Thank you so much for the Amazon Card. I was so surprised when I received that yesterday, from the Spring Blog Carnival hop. That really made my day to find out that I had won an Amazon Card.

    Thanks for this Great Giveaway. I appreciate it so much!!!

  5. Happy mothers day to you! First, I love the picture. 2nd, genius idea about the gas gift cards! 3rd. You are primary president? Holy cow, I bow down. Yay for a day off. And Whoohoo for cheesecake.

  6. I love that picture! K, the frozen pizzas for dinner had me cracking up, but at least it was something you didn't have to make. I love reading your blog Becky!
