Mother's Day

This was the best Mother's Day I've ever had. Saturday, we moved all of the furniture back into the bedroom, so I got to sleep in my own bed instead of on the futon in the basement. It was heavenly. And the room looks amazing, see? (More pictures of this later.)

Mr. Perfect made me breakfast of eggs and sausage (my favorite breakfast meat). I love it when he cooks. Not only does it mean I don't have to, but he's really good at it.

After breakfast, I had a meeting before church. On my way into the building, I got a call from my secretary, who was supposed to teach the Young Women's lesson that day. She wasn't having that great of a Mother's Day. Her daughter had stomach flu and had been throwing up all night. It meant that I had 3-1/2 hours to prepare a lesson in-between meetings, singing in the choir during Sacrament Meeting, and having the Young Women hand out the Mother's Day favors to all of the ladies in the ward. All I have to say is that I love the new youth curriculum the church has put together. I showed a couple of videos and asked them about their favorite scriptures and why. We talked about why it's important to read in the scriptures every day, and also a bit more about their Patriarchal Blessings, the topic covered the week before. The girls all seemed engaged in the subject and the discussion. Score 10 for the Spirit (because it was in no way me).

We invited all of the parents for Mother's Day dinner. We knew it would be a difficult one for Mom M. with Dad passing away in January. Happily, Drama Queen and Game Boy also came for dinner. They had dinner with their mom's family earlier and were able to join us. Mr. Perfect grilled salmon (my request), and we had veggies and a really good salad provided by Mlle Ami. Afterwards, we sat in the updated living room and talked. I snapped these pictures of the kids while they were sitting together.

Oh, they make us laugh.

After everyone went home, we followed Mom & Dad P. to their house for dessert with the P side of the family. Too much good food, but never enough good company.
