A Mother's Day Treat

Friday, May 11, 2007

I went to my daughter's school for their Mother's Day Tea Party... first, they sang some songs in French and in English... then she surprised me with a card that read:

She then proceed to show me her journal that read:
"I love my mom because she loves me and my mom cook good food and she buys me toys."
Saturday, May 12

As a pre-mother's day celebration, we had a BBQ picnic in our backyard with two families... we had lamb, salmon, pork BBQ, chicken inasal and corn on the cob... we also had lumpia shanghai and pancit canton... Yummy!

These 2 families were the ones who convinced us to relocate to Calgary. The first family moved in August while me/us and the second family moved 1 week apart.

For dessert, we had fruit salad, cheese cake and lychees...

Later, we had fun watching the spoof of Manny Pacquio in Wowowee at YouTube.

As a mother's day gift to me, my kids clean up the basement! And it was done the way I wanted it done!

Also during the kids liturgy at the church, my daughter made this for me --

and my son bought me a rose [for $3] that was being sold at the church.

Truly a wonderful weekend!!! How was your weekend?

Belated happy mom's day, JO!

Hmmm, pre-mom's day barbecue party - I can almost smell the barbecue and inasal and all the other goodies! How nice of your family to celebrate in honor of moms.

Your children are also very thoughtful. I love the card especially. Something that you should keep in a box and open again 20 or 25 years from now ... I can just imagine everybody's delight and the wonderful memories that it would bring!

Hi Bugsy,
I do keep all of the cards from my kids... but thanks for the idea of keeping them in a lock box to be open years from now.

Hi Meeya,
Thanks! I'm sure you had a grand day too.

Hi Evi,

Belated Happy Mother's Day Jo. I'm glad you had a great time with the family. Sounds like you had a great BBQ picnic. I like all the food you mentioned. Yummy!

Your kids are so thoughtful. The card is beautiful. Now that Yohan will be going to preschool this year, I look forward to the day when he will bring home all kinds of lovely crafts. Your son is very sweet to buy you roses. As a mom, gestures like those you mentioned make the occasion extra special. Thanks for sharing.
