How Did You Celebrate YOUR Mother’s Day? Link Up

Julia 5th Birthday

Did you enjoy your Mother’s Day? How did you celebrate?

Janice and I both enjoyed rather simple Mother’s Days…

But my day was extra special because my Julia was born 5 years ago on Mother’s Day. This year, her birthday fell on the Saturday before Mother’s Day, but when she woke that morning she felt sick and we had to cancel her party.

We spent her birthday snuggling and napping and she never even complained about missing her party.

The next morning, on Mother’s Day, we all slept in, had pancakes and snuggled on the couch. Then I rested all morning while Rob took the girls out.

Julia and MadisonThat afternoon, Julia felt all better and wanted her party, so we threw together an impromptu party with her best friend Madison and Madison’s little sister Avery.

The four little girls had a wonderful time and I relaxed with Madison’s mom who happens to also be my best friend.

I find it amazing how you can add a cake, party hats and a couple presents and an everyday playdate turns into a party.

The girls had a blast and it makes me wonder why I’m paying so much for her upcoming party next week at an indoor playground. (Well… only a little. She has been talking about having her birthday party at this particular location for an entire year and she’s invited all her friends from school.)

So my weekend included lots of my favorite thing… snuggles with my little girls. And I had a wonderful Mother’s Day.

So tell us… what did you do for Mother’s Day?

    We managed to spend the day with both grandmas. It was nice, relaxing, I got some free time time with the family. It was a great day.

    I spent Mother’s Day with my 3 favorite people – my husband Tim and our 2 little girls. Tim cooked and cleaned and played with the girls…but the best part is that he does those things every day! I’m a lucky girl. :)

    I’m so sorry that Julia was sick on her birthday! But I’m glad that she was feeling better and able to enjoy her special day, even if a day late. It sounds like you had a nice Mother’s Day – mine was very low-key, but nice, too. :)

    I never really had a Mother’s Day since we always celebrate for my mom. This was the first year I she isn’t with us, and I am still celebrating for her on a blog post. Anyhow, my Mother’s Day was very relaxing, the kids gathered and we had our favorite meal together. Fondue a la carte! :-)
