Happy Mother’s Day!
Today was Mother’s Day. We sent Becky away to an afternoon at the movies while the kids and I spent the afternoon at home. While she was out we ran down to Winn Dixie and got some flowers and a cake mix. Mason wanted to get her some brightly dyed green, pink and yellow ones, but I persuaded him that more she would like a more natrually colored bunch better.
As for the cake mix, the plan was to make Becky some cupcakes for dessert. I asked Mason what kind he wanted to get. “Cherry!” he exclaimed. Sadly, they did not have a cherry cake mix, and we settled for strawberry. Mason was happy because it was pink and looked almost like cherries.
When we got home we made the cupcakes and then gave Becky her card and flowers. She had a nice afternoon off on her own, and the roast chicken I made for dinner turned out perfectly!
