We had a lot of celebrating to do, as well. We celebrated my impending (gulp) birthday and Mother's Day, too. Daddy enjoyed (ha) taking the three Bigs shopping on Saturday. I cleaned up with some lovely (wink) jewelry, flowers, M&M's (boy, do they know me), LOST on DVD, and some other kid-chosen gifties. He wore them out shopping as he shared with me that all three were sprawled out on the floor at Best Buy while Daddy made one of his purchases.
Patrick spoiled me, as well. He got me an external flash for my Rebel and all five of those adorable Hajuko perfumes. So, so sweet. He's ONLY been gone for two months, but I see the quilt is already pretty heavy. Patrick saw to it that I ate while he was home (something I don't always have time for in his absence), and the kids really enjoyed breakfast at the Barrell before headed back to Central Command on Sunday.
Mother's Day took a nose dive shortly after he left, but I'll leave that for another day. Nearly 2 months down and 6 to go. i think i can, i think i can... Here are some recent pages.
