My Mother's Day Surprise.

I have to say, that it is rare that my boys can pull one over on me, but that is what they did on Mother's Day! My husband and the two older boys left the house for a few hours and said they would be back later. That was fine with me, it gave me a little break!!

When they returned, my husband had taken the boys to the Golden Arches for lunch and I saw him come in with the bag, but I didn't think anything of it. Him and the boys went straight for the kitchen to eat. Then my husband came in the dining room and put a old looking DVD player on the table and said," Happy Mother's Day!" I just looked at him. Then he went back in the kitchen.

Well, I looked at the DVD player and thought to myself, "What the devil is this? I didn't ask for a DVD player and what name brand is this thing anyway? Because I know my husband isn't going to purchase some off the wall brand. It didn't come with a box, instructions, or even a Mother's Day card? What is going on?"

Then to my surprise, the boys came around the corner with a bag in their hands, smiling, and said, " Happy Mother's Day". This is what was in the bag:

A brand new red SONY Cyber-shot Digital Camera. I was so shocked!!! I love my new camera and all four of my boys!

They also took me to Applebee's for dinner. Here is a shot of the four of them and a very happy me.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Well, today is my 34th birthday and so far it has been pretty good. It's great when your birthday falls on the weekend! And since my birthday is today and Mother's Day in Sunday, I decided to make the whole weekend extra special for me!

My family may say I'm on strike, but I really don't care! I'm doing nothing this weekend and that includes cooking, washing clothes, sweeping the floor, or washing children. My husband can do that!!!

The boys bought me my favorite, a CARVEL, ice cream cake for my birthday. I really don't have much self control when comes to this ice cream, so I only eat it once a year on my birthday. ;D

Looks good, right?
