With Eliza in my arms, I stumbled out of our bedroom, only slightly after 6am, and found Jeremiah and Judah in the kitchen decorating this cake. Apparently Judah said that he wanted to make Mommy a Chocolate Peanut Butter cake. It's moments like this, where I see my husband helping our 4 year old decorate a cake, before he heads off to work, that remind me of what an amazing Dad he is.
For breakfast, we sat at the table and had some of his Chocolate Peanut Butter sprinkled masterpiece. He was thrilled.
We ate way too much cake yesterday.
A baby that blew out her diaper on my leg.
Kids that spilled both of their bowls of cereal on their clothes, just before leaving for MOPS.
Bag pipe music that the kids turned on without asking. The problem is that they cranked the volume up to the highest level before turning on the previously mentioned bagpipes. My ears are still recovering.
My favorite coffee from my sister.
Hand written notes from the neighbor kids.
Flowers and a card from my MOPS gals.
And.....this picnic basket.
I've been slightly obsessing over old fashioned picnic baskets for awhile now. I want to take my kids on fancy picnics on a regular basis and have it be something that they'll always remember. I even have special dishes that I found on clearance at Target, that are perfect for picnics.
Well, look what my Mom showed up with. This picnic basket was my Grandma's and I love, love, love that we get to use it for our picnics now. After Mom dropped the picnic basket and flowers by, I literally stood in my kitchen and cried happy tears. I miss my Grandma and I know how thrilled she would be to see my kids going on fancy picnics with her basket.
