A wonderful "Mutter's Day" !

I had such a great day with my boys! When we woke up this morning the boys gave me a new plate that they painted for me at the pottery place with Daddy and Matthew gave me a beautiful picture that he made for me at school! We actually went to church yesterday for our church/school pcinic, so this morning we headed off to brunch at one of our favorite coffee houses. Yummy bloody mary's, biscuits and gravy, omlets and french toast! Then we headed downtown and ended up taking a helicopter ride, it was a first for me & Matthew & Michael....we had soo much fun, it is something that I will remember always! Then we went up in the arch, and finished the trip with ice cream on the arch steps! Michael was saying "Mutter's Day" all day, it was SOOO cute!
We came home and planted the new flowers that Dave & the boys bought me and then had Dave's Mom over for dinner. Dave grilled and I made sweet potato fries, baked beans, salad and homemade blackeberry crisp(ala mode).
I am so blessed to have my two precious boys and to be their Mommy!
This was the 2nd Mother's Day without my wonderful Mom, and I miss her so much! She was the best Mom, I have ever known and I only hope that I can be even half the mom she was!
Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful Mom's!

Hi Sissy. Glad you had a wonderful Mutter's Day :) yes mom was the "best" mom ever, but in my opinion (and mom's, we'd talked about it) you do a pretty awesome job. I am proud of you.
