This weekend started out with a fun girls night on Friday night with Nicky. We went to Thanksgiving Point for a nice romantical dinner for two, then went and had pedicure's. It is always so much fun to get out without the kids. The best part about this picture is how it was taken, as we were driving home, I remembered that I had my camera, and we had'nt taken any pictures of our "date" So when we got back to Nicoles, we asked her babysitter if she would take a picture of us? She looked at us like we were CRAZY! And now as I think about it, we kind of are. We dont think we are that old, but she probaly looks at us like we are old haggard mothers! o-well, We had fun, and thats all that matters right?
Next, Sweet little Milo went into our backyard, which consists of weeds and dirt, and picked me this beautiful bunch of "flowers" it was so cute, he was so excited that we had "flowers" growing in our backyard!
This is a Cute little plate that Milo made in his Kindergarten class, for Mothers Day! Flowers are some of his favorite things to draw.
Then we have "the cake" So Milo and I have been quite entertained latley, by watching "Ace of Cakes" on the Food Network channel. One day while watching, Milo said, "Mom, do you think you could decorate a cake?" Well i took this as a challenge. Of course I can decorate a cake!...Right? Well lets just say, it's not as easy as they make it seem. I did'nt have all the right "equipment" so in order for me to make a 3 teired round cake, I used to round cake pans (for the bottom layer) and then I used a cookie sheet for the rest, which meant I had to cut out 5 layers of cake to make the to 2 teirs! And then put them all together!! Let's just say, I dont think I will be doing that again for a long time. (Milo helped on the design process, if you cant tell by all the flowers and bows.)
Hey, are we related?
And of course what would Mothers Day be, without the crazy mom shuffle. We enjoyed a little time at the Lowrys and a little time with my side. We Love All the "Moms" in our life, and I'm glad that we have a whole day just for Moms!
