Mother's Day - It was a stinker, literally!!!

I hope that all of my fellow Mommies had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. As for me, I couldn't have asked for a better time with my family. I got to eat a yummy breakfast prepared by my wonderful husband with my mother and father-in-law Sunday morning. My wonderful husband even cleaned up (well mostly) after breakfast. He is amazing. I got loads of hand made cards from my 6 year old daughter. My son made me some crafts at school. I was a bit disappointed that I didn't get a macaroni necklace to wear. I guess there's always next year, right? I did get an Ipod Touch from Brien and the kids. They got it on Saturday which was when I also received it because Tyler came in from shopping with his dad and sister and declared, "Mommy we got you a new ipod"! Since the cat was out of the bag, I got my gift a day early. I was so glad that I didn't end up with horse or cattle supplies because ya just never know with my bunch!
Sunday afternoon we went to my sister's house and spent the afternoon with my mother and siblings. Since my sister has a new house (a big log cabin) it was nice to be there because there was room for the kids to play and have fun while not disturbing the adults (too much). It was nice to spend time with my Mom. I have less and less than that these days. I also got a call from my dad which was a nice surprise.

The downside to the day was when we got home, we realized that Oscar the wiener dog (click the picture to see him hiding) had been left uncrated. This is not a good thing. When we leave, he vandalizes the house if he's left out of his crate. I don't know why this happens. He's fine when we're here, even at night. But, when we leave if we forget to lock him up, he chews up everything possible. This time, one box of diaper wipes, a half a bag of new diapers, a box of tissue, a brand new hair bow, and my "Mother's Hall of Fame" mother's day card fell victim to the violence . I guess we all know how Oscar feels about me now, right? The worst of all is that he found a sippie cup full of milk that had obviously been MIA for quite some time. He managed to chew a hole in the lid and the nearly solidified milk was then extracted by said perpetrator. Needless to say, the house was filled with an aroma that was unmistakable when we walked through the door. In fact, it still lingers.

Love the log home -- it reminds me of our log home back in New York, which also had a green roof. Our logs were a darker color though.

I'm glad you had a great Mother's Day celebration. The homemade cards and that Ipod Touch are great gifts.

Sorry to hear about what happened while you were out. Oscar must feel so sad when he's left on his own so he vent it out on other things. Hope he will outgrow it.

I spent my Mother's Day at work for 16-hours listening to my dispatch partner cry about her marriage having problems and trying to dredge up some sympathy for her but having a little trouble as I had heard it all and then some while in Vegas with her. This is a bad case of "you made your own bed now lie in it" ...

Glad that you had such a nice day with the exception of Oscar's little surprise present!

Gack! Spoiled milk!

You'll love your iPod touch. I got one for my birthday this year, and I LOVE IT!
