Mother's Day!!!!

So excited for me to open the present!

Me and my little munchkin

The finished project... just priceless

I am so far behind....I will have to catch you all up with what the Nielsen's have been up to lately. First off we had a wonderful mother's day. This was the first Mother's Day that Mackenzie really understood and it was absolutely adorable. The Thursday before Mother's Day Mackenzie had preschool and her teacher was telling them that they didn't have to buy their moms stuff to show them that they were loved, they could do things like clean up their toys, listen to them etc. Sooo.. On the way home Mackenzie told me that when she got home she had to go upstairs and do something for Mother's Day and I wasn't allowed to go up there. She was running around, I had no idea what she was up to. Then she came out and asked for hangers, but said I couldn't come in her room and just to leave them at her door, so I did as I was told. About 20 minutes later, she told me that I could come upstairs, but I had to cover my eyes. When I opened them she was standing in the middle of the room with her arms wide out and said "tada" She had cleaned her room, she hung up all of her clothes, and she said she had to hang everything on the lower rack because she was too short, she made her bed perfectly, and all of the toys were put away, she had also folded all of her pajamas and put them in her drawers. She really did an awesome job and I will remember that moment forever.

My mother's day wasn't over yet though, Mackenzie brought home a present for me from preschool, but she told me it was a surprise and that I couldn't open it until Mother's day. Well she couldn't wait that long, so before we headed to CA to visit my parents she told me that I could open it. It was a potholder with her handprint on it, it is the best present I have ever gotten, she was so proud of it.

We then headed to CA to visit my family and had a lazy weekend of eating good food and hanging out by the pool. I hope you all had as great of a mother's day as I did!
