Wonderful Weekend

So this weekend was a little busy to say the least.  On Saturday, my daughter had her First Communion.  She looked so pretty and was so excited!  The mass turned out wonderful!  Go here to see photos;

On Sunday, Mother's Day, my four little ones had such a special day planned.  First, I awoke to a wonderful breakfast they had set up which consisted of toast w/ pb & j, sliced apples and cereal.  Next, they had laid out their gifts and cards in the livingroom:

I was completely surprised when I opened the packages:

Each one of them gave me a snowglobe with their picture and a beautiful bangle bracelet!

I will treasure these always!

Also, to go along with these, three of the kids who are in school, designed a cake each to bring home:

I must say they are delicious!

After all of this, my husband said to get around quick cause we were going out for the day.  To make a long story short, he and the children planned a day at Universal Studios and Universal Islands of Adventure!  We had such a great time!  The lines were short and the weather was gorgeous!  We got there at 9am and returned home at 9pm, exhausted!  I couldn't have asked for a more perfect Mother's Day and weekend.  I have to admit, I am truly, truly blessed :)
