It was yummy!
I then opened the presents, a new tri-pod, a waffle iron, chocolates, some colored pencils for the grown-up coloring books I had recently purchased, and all of the homemade and school-made gifts, including a little necklace from Alex.
Alex and I spent the morning coloring, Eric even joined us coloring a picture on his iPad. Then it was time for church, where there were wonderful talks devoted to motherhood.
After church I told my kids my one wish was to recreate a picture from a Mother's day several years ago, thankfully they complied, it was Mother's Day after all.

We ended the day with a Family Home Evening lesson about the Plan of Happiness and that we know that families can be together forever.
The day wasn't perfect, Eric had to do a lot of corralling to get the boys to actually help at times, but Alex was a rock star and made parts of the dinner all by herself. It was truly a wonderful Mother's Day and I am so happy to be a Mother.
