Mother's Day 2014
Mother's Day did not go as planned around here. Earlier in the week, Eric had been HORRIBLY sick with the flu. A couple days had passed though, so I thought I was in the clear. Not true.
Saturday morning we went to a Stake production of "Built on the Rock." It's a really big deal, with many of the local youth participating. The kids loved the play, and seeing the teenagers in their costumes. I enjoyed it, but started to feel a little yucky during it. I was still kidding myself that it was just the tight room and the heat at that point.
Right from the play, Maggie and I headed to a birthday party for a friend in her class. I still wasn't feeling great, but again, I thought it was the crowd noise, etc. Thankfully, Maggie got her face painted before lunch, because once I ate a slice of pizza it was all over...
I got us out of there as graciously as I could, and then it was all I could do to drive us home and crawl into my bed.
So, please forgive the rest of the pictures because they are all from the same angle in my room. I didn't move for the rest of the day.
For Mother's Day, Amos dressed himself for church as his present to me. Not too shabby. It was like 80 degrees out though:
The kids made me breakfast in bed. I still wasn't up for eating, but it was so depressing missing the tradition. I did my best with the toast, bacon, and apple.
This ginger ale, though, this was a true gift:
While I was bed bound, the girls put on a fashion show for me as entertainment. And entertained I was.
Maggie said, let's pose "stylish" and this is what we got:
"No, Audrey. Like this!"
"Ok, now be silly."
The Sunday before Mother's Day I taught the Relief Society lesson. I used this quote, and it's been on my mind ever since. It may have something to do with the fact that I just had to explain what a "nip slip" is to Amos after he heard the expression used on the radio. Thank goodness it was radio.
