Santa brought us a great family gift. We got the Crayola Family Escapes Group Coloring set. This is a nice set of 6 different scenes that are broken into 4 separate pieces of paper. The idea behind this is that each member of the family color one part of the picture and then put them all together. Eva finished hers first and then she went on to color more in another book. Andrew colored one small part of his piece and he was done. He went on to play with his kinetic rock toy instead. I finished mine as we watched The Boss Baby on Netflix. Allison finished hers later tonight as we watched Outlander.
It was a quiet day to stay at home. Andrew and I began working on is giant LEGO set of Coast Guard boats and a helicopter. We took turns together building and he time passed quickly but it was so fun just to be there building with him. He stopped on a few occasions to hug me and tell me that he enjoyed building with me. It was a nice day.
For Mother’s Day this year we are doing a repeat of Mother’s Day two years ago. Last night I was looking through my old Mother’s Day posts and two years ago we went to the Eagle Brook Saloon for dinner and I flew off to the PBS Annual Meeting on Monday. Cut to two years later and we are off to Eagle Brook Saloon once again with me scheduled to fly out tomorrow morning to the PBS annual Meeting. This time it is in San Diego.
The kids were adorable with their gifts to Allison. Eva and Andrew purchased a special bracelet that spells out mother in Morse code. the bracelet was priced at $10. Eva had $8. the woman gave it to her for $6. While Allison did not see what Eva had bought she knew about the exchange. She contacted the woman to thank her for being so kind to the kids. Allison got a response from the woman who told her that she distinctly remembered the kids and how polite and well mannered they were. Such a great thing to hear about your kids.
Eva made Allison breakfast in bed and Andrew have her a card. Both kids gave Allison cards. I gave her the gift of coffee and a hanging plant.
Dinner was nice. The whole family enjoys Buffalo Wings now. We had the best plate of them tonight, too. Eva flew through them and even Andrew wanted more than one. Eva gets this real serious face on when she wants more wings. We had a great dinner then I said goodbye to the family and headed to work. A short night tonight and then off to the airport for my flight.
