On thursday, I got these pretty flowers from Ben. They were for mother's day, but he opted to have me get them a few days early. The girls were really excited about them too. Kara actually tried to take credit for them, but when I talked to Ben on the phone, he said she hadn't known anything about it. So funny. Now these flowers are blooming so beautifully, but I haven't taken another picture.
On friday, I got these pretty flowers from my parents for mother's day. I love having all these beautiful, fresh flowers in my house. I took this picture before I cut the stems down. They are looking prettier every day.
On sunday, Ben and the girls made me a yummy pancake breakfast, although I opted to eat it in the kitchen instead of bed, to avoid crumbs. silly, I know. The girls gave me new oven mitts, potholders, and kitchen towels which I really needed. Ben helped them pick out very nice ones for me. We had a nice, relaxing day together. It was a great mother's day.
I just love these two girls! Kara has spring break this week, so it has been nice to sleep in a little later than usual. Kiersten went pee in the potty 3 times yesterday, and so far twice today. Next week, I am going to go to full days of training. I bought her some stickers today, and plan on making her a potty chart to earn a fun reward.
Kara always wants her picture taken. I don't know that she'll grow up to be a model, though, with her crazy poses she loves to do.
