*For our date the night before, Andrew took me swing dancing. LOVED that. We had an hour-long lesson followed by a dance where we got to practice our East Coast Jitterbug.
It was fun!
And I'm afraid we already forgot all our moves.
*Whitney (with a little help from Caroline) made me a giant chalk drawing Mother's Day card.
She describes me as
(love that she included my beauty mark!)
(because I play video games)
(she says I helped rescue her in the ocean...)
And Care Bear added this portrait of me.
During Activity Days at church, Whit made me this corsage.
I learned about a Southern tradition.
On Mother's Day, you are supposed to give your mom
a red flower if her mother is still living.
And a white one if her mother has passed away.
We've lived here for nine years and I'm finally
properly accessorized for the holiday.
During primary, the kids colored these flowers:
Here's what they had to say about me:
My mom makes the best...
B: Italian salad
My favorite thing to do with my mom is...
B: summer school and road trip
C: play games
My mom is good at...
My mom is as beautiful as...
B: An Uncle Tone Painting (when I first read this, I thought it said I was as beautiful as Uncle Tone. That was confusing.)
W: a flower
C: a bird
My Mom teaches me...
B: How to be nice
My Mom loves me because...
B: she is my friend
W: she loves me
I love my Mom because...
B: she is awesome
W: she's my Mom.
The girls also brought home gifts they made at school.
Whit made me breakfast in bed!
(which Andrew had already planned, so I got two days in a row!)
Care Bear gave me a candle holder.
Andrew made a yummy lasagna dinner
And I got cheesecake for dessert.
And a fabulous book for my gift.
It was a wonderful day.
Thanks, you guys!
