The best day of the year!

Mother's day is my favorite day of the year. I share my birthday with Malia, which I love, but I think of it more as "her" day now. So mother's day is my day and I have to say I had a great one this year.
First off, Brent was in charge of the gifts for all of the women in our ward this year. He wanted to do something different, so I suggested dipping oreos. I found some online that were crazy expensive and decided that we should do it ourselves. Brent offered the help of the men in the ward but I said NO WAY, I want these to look nice. So I dipped 400 oreos, Brent helped me bag and tie them. It really didn't take too long and they were yummy! You can't go wrong with dipped oreos, unless your my crazy friend K who doesn't like oreos, weird. (jk, you know i love you!) Ignore my slightly sunburned face in this pic.

The leftovers...


My mother's day was awesome. Brent and the kids made me breakfast in bed. Crepes with 3 different fillings, sausage and pineapple. It was really good! Brent got me a new mp3 player so I don't have to borrow his anymore, a new workout tshirt and a few other small things. The kids made me fun art projects at school. I told the kids that my only wish for mother's day was to have no fighting. That lasted until about 9am, oh well. Besides teaching my 5 year olds at church, I had no other responsibilites. Brent made lunch, dinner and a dessert. (caramel brownies!) He put the kids to bed and cleaned up the kitchen. It really was the perfect mother's day. Thanks Brent!

Wow--that does sound like a dreamy day. Your dipped oreos look awesome!! Tieing them up in those little baggies was a perfect way to give them to all the ladies.
