I couldn't resist posting a picture of the Washington gang's gift to me this year. How funny is this!? I love it. I have always had a thing for mismatched animals. Whether their legs are too long/short or their nose is way too big, they all make me smile. :) Thanks Mandy and Lauren for picking this one. They did mention that there was a pig as well, so perhaps I can wrangle where they got it out of them and go get his friend? :)
Mothers day was wonderful as always. Carl got the whole breakfast in bed thing taken care of on Saturday since we have to get up so early for church on Sunday's. The boys made gifts at school and scouts that were wonderful and Carl gave me a really pretty necklace. When we got to church Jacob and Alex got up with all the Primary kids and sang Mother's Day songs for the congregation. Of course, Jacob was the loudest by far and the most proud! Everyone (including us) thought it was very cute. They also learned some signs for one of the songs, and one particular part had Alex looking like he was doing a dance move from "Thriller"! ha ha The rest of the day was wonderful. We went to Jacki's for some BBQ courtesy of the men folk. Carl made cake and mac and cheese for the party. All in all a fabulous day!
