Happy Mother’s Day

Posted by Annie on May 10, 2008 in Uncategorized |

Mother’s Day is tomorrow but I’ve already received all my gifts. Shame on me!

My daughter arrived last night from Reno, NV with grandkids. Oh my, they grow so fast. You can imagine my surprise when they arrived with warm brownies; after all it’s a four-hour drive. She confessed, they actually kept them on the heater vent the entire trip to keep them warm. How funny and sweet. The oldest (the 4-year-old) was very excited to hand me my gift, which we all shared after dinner.

This year my husband made sure I got everything I wanted for Mother’s Day – he had me order them myself.

First to arrive was my new . I have been trying to find one for going on two-years. While I love it, the watch is shiny, elegant and easy to read. I must confess it’s about half the diameter that I was expecting. When will I learn to read the description closer? (Case Diameter: 1 1/16")

Anne of Green Gables - 5-disc collection

I am such a fan of Anne of Green Gables that I receive regular updates from Sullivan Entertainment and I was simply thrilled to find the is out. Not only did they include two-new documentaries, but also included was lost footage, missing scenes and my favorite, The Missing Episode, “Marilla Cuthbert’s Death,” which I was especially interested in watching.

I must say after staying up last night to watch it, it wasn’t anything like what I was expecting and I personally feel Kevin Sullivan, the producer made the right choice in excluding it from the final cut. I felt it detracted from the rest of the story, even though it cleared up several questions the movie failed to address. Still, I enjoyed watching it.

I am certain this collection will get as much use, if not more than my set of VHS tapes that I’ve all but worn out over the years. I especially enjoyed learning more about Lucy Maud Montgomery.

Today we’ll turn on the bubble machine, watch the kids play and get lots of pictures. It’s so wonderful to have the grandkids come to visit and so nice to see them go afterwards. I’m already looking forward to the rest.

I think all Mother’s are special and Homeschooling Mothers are the best of all.

What does your perfect Mother’s Day look like? How will you spend your special day?

    We spent the day playing with the grandkids in the bubble machine and the sandbox. It was a terrific day.
