Playing Catch-up

I haven't been hanging out in Blogland much lately. It looks like I have a lot of catching up to do! :) It also looks like I am amongst many who had a very enjoyable Mothers Day. I got up early as I usually do but after a couple hours of puttering around the house by myself, I decided to go back to bed. When I woke up, I was surprised with a yummy pancake breakfast. Thanks Craig! The girls gave me the sweetest gifts..... This is from Ragan. They made these in her Young Woman's group at church. I can't wait to put a picture in it! Isn't it cute?? Makenzie gave me this Mother and Daughter Willow Tree statue. It is just so wonderful. I love it!
Cameron called me to wish me a happy mothers day and it was so great to talk to him. I haven't seen him for a year and I can't wait to see him when we go to Utah this summer!
We also were able to talk to Mark all the way over in Uganda. We talked to him for an hour and a half. He is doing well and enjoying his mission. Can you believe he has been out for almost 6 months already!?!
I am truly a blessed mother!

I am so thrilled to learn you got to talk to Mark!! How cool is that we can talk to someone across the word. You got lovely gifts from the girls - so sweet and thoughtful!

Have a great day, hugs, Linda

Bummer about the computer virus. Hope you get up and running soon. I have enjoyed 'conversing' with you.
You had a great Mother's Day. I can't believe Mark has been gone for 6 months! He is such a great guy!
Love the Willowtree and the frame. You were well remembered!
How is preschool? Do you get any break?
