I hope all of you moms had a divine Mother's Day!  Unfortunately I slept most of mine.  I cried about it already too.  I am really mad at myself for doing that.  Sleep is needed, but I assure you.  The amount of sleeping that I accumulated was just ridiculous.  Never ever again!  But when I was awake, my kids gave me a card that held a locket in it.  Lovely.  And my husband got me a cute card a book.  We don't really do humungous gifts for Mother's Day around here.  Because... that is not what Mother's Day is about.  My hubby and girls did, however make me the most amazingly delicious breakfast!



I promise.  It tasted as good (better) than my camera could capture.


Everyone of us loved the stuffed french toast.  Smiles everywhere.  Yum yum yum!

After breakfast daddy read the girls a story.



The girls played some educational games on the computer while mom watched on from the bed.  Which was a bad idea.  Because I fell asleep.

But when I woke up, I was informed that we were going to dinner.  Dinner at one of my favorite restaurants called Lucille's.  Fabulous food!



I took advantage of having my family so near to snap some great pictures.  Get ready for a picture assault!



For dinner we had Fried Green Tomatoes for an appetizer.  They were incredible.  The girls were dying to get a taste of the sauce.  :)


And I had Tri Tip for dinner.  As always.


We ended the evening with a stroll to Barnes and Noble where I added to my ever growing humungous stash of books just waiting to be read.



So, there is my Mother's Day play by play.
How was YOUR day?
