My Mother's Day

I had a wonderful Mother's Day.
My sweet hubby surprised me with a card and gift certificate to a SPA.
Woohoo...a S.P.A.  !!!
OK--I've never been to one, so what do you all suggest?  I'm thinking a massage... or maybe a facial and manicure?  Help--I can't decide!

The kids--thanks to their wonderful teachers--had made coffee mugs that they decorated.  Oh my goodness, they are so cute!  I will enjoy them for many years.  

They also made cards that were adorable.
We went out to lunch after church and then headed out to the deck to relax.  Perfect!

Then it was time for Mommy to get pampered.

First, some kisses.
Note the corsage from Jeff.

{Thank you, Jillian, for taking all these pictures.}

 Then, I got my hair done.  Thank you, Katie!


Then it was time for a message.


 Next on the agenda was a manicure.

Jake decided I needed a foot bath.  Jillian gave him the idea.  He said he was being like Jesus...washing His followers feet.  I was a bit dumbfounded--but Jake said he saw it on our Jesus video.  So cute.
He added his own feet which I'm thinking was only to show the world how bad I need a tan.  Sigh.  

Here is my new cup collection!

I am so thankful to be a mom.  There were many years when I wondered if I would ever get to be one. 
God was smiling.
Because He knew what was coming.
Ha.

Adorable pics, but your family is always adorable. Love pic of Jake doing your feet. Priceless.

Suggestions for the spa!I've had the massages, etc, which are so nice, but I go frequently (in nice weather) for pedicures, which are my all time favorite. They are just SO relaxing, it is unbelievable. Plus they LAST for several weeks. Which is great for sandal wearing.

Oh Karin, I love the pics!!! Aren't little ones so cute on Mother's Day? I had plenty of pampering too. One thing's for sure, if you hadn't posted that first pick with your hair looking so good, I might have been worried...SO funny!!!

Wow! You really got pampered. Awesome and sweet! As for the spa, can I throw my vote toward the facial? I have had massages, manis and pedis and they are all wonderful and relaxing, but two years ago I got a facial and OH.MY.GOODNESS. It was so relaxing. The steam part is a bit warm, but the facial and scalp massage are sublime, and I seriously think my skinned glowed for several weeks. Great for the tired mom that I was. I have been wishing for another ever since.
