Piano Recital and Mother's Day

Well, to make a long story short, Matt bought himself trees for the yard and tried passing it off as a Mother's Day gift for me (he's been wanting more trees for a while now!)....and I pitched a tiny fit. I told him earlier in the week that all I wanted was a thumb ring since I lost the one I had a while ago. Well, he must not have heard me correctly. I'm thinking he must have mistaken 'thumb ring' for 'green thumb' which would explain the trees. Nice try, honey! So I came home from church on Mother's Day to find some flowers and a card with money in it! Hooray!!!!

When the kids and I came home from church, Colton was over so I was able to get a picture of all my kidlets together for a Mother's Day picture.

And last but not least, Maddie and Jaden had their Spring piano recital on Saturday. My cute niece, Mindy has been their teacher this year and we will be so sad to lose her since she's going away to college in the fall. We love you, Shoobie!!!!

Funny how guys think we want other things when we really just want the thing we say we wanted!!! Pretty flowers! Glad you got a picture with all your kids in it! Hooray! Crazy to think Mindy is going to be in college in the fall? Is someone else going to teach your kids piano? I want Kalven to take it, but for now baseball is good, I guess!

Debbie the thing you need to do is buy your own gifts.. That's what I did.

The flowers are beautiful, and you will love the trees. So great that the kids are learning to play the piano.

Most may think that the money was because he wasn't interested in shopping(which may be true) but...deep down, it's him knowing that by giving you money, you'll buy something you really want and that will make you both happier. what a sweet guy to not shop for you...lol.

Why would Matt want MORE TREES!?
At least he gave you flowers!!! Sad that Mindy is going!

P.S. He gave you money too!

Good job, Matt, on the flowers! Funny story! I'll have to show this to Kory. I nicely told him not to stress about anything for me for Mother's Day this year.. we had just moved, and he was crazy busy getting our old house ready to rent etc.. but then he did NOTHING. He didn't even SAY happy Mother's Day.. or help with dishes or anything. He's on the bad list.!!
