I really should be not allowed to blog on Mother’s Day.  It is a bitter/sweet day.  One where my feelings are very raw and on the surface.  This is why I shouldn’t blog today.   But, I promise not to go into the depths of my soul and burden you with all my sadness that I feel on this day.  Instead I will share the happiness that I have felt on this day. 

All that happiness stems from her….

Last night Novalie wanted to have a sleepover with me.  We camped out in the living room and watched “Jurassic Park” and broke out the Mother’s Day cake that Novalie insisted on getting me in Safeway.  We stayed up late and I was hoping that meant we would sleep in, but instead we woke up early and snuggled up watching cartoons.   We did some puzzles and played some games.   We gave each other manicures and pedicures.  We got ready for church whichNovalie was so mad we had to go to church.  She said, “Mother’s Day should be on Saturday so I could spend all day with you.”  She thought it was unfair to me that she had to leave me to go to Primary.  She told me all day long “Happy Mother’s Day” and “you are the best Mom in the whole world” and “I love you.”  Lucky for me, I get to hear that everyday minus the Happy Mother’s Day part.  Novalie is very high energy all the time, but today was times 10 on the energy.  After church she was bouncing off the walls, so we went on a bike ride which is one of our favorite things to do together.  She was very excited because she found good treasures on our bike ride.  We are always on the lookout fortreasures.  It was a good and happy Mother’s Day!  I love being Novalie’s Mommy more than I could ever express!  She is fabulous!

    What a fun day you and Novalie had – she is a gem and so are you!!
    I love the dresses. Did you buy appliques and sew them on the dress and where did you get the cute t-shirt on the pink dress? You are a pro – I need to pull out my machine and make a couple of dresses – not that Novalie needs any but she is the only granddaughter still young enough to wear them or want to wear them. Great job -you need to sell some!!!!
