Mother's Day 2009

Monday, May 18, 2009


Kate woke up on Mother's Day with a fever and classic flu symptoms. We called the pediatrician and they asked us to bring her right in for a flu swab. We had reservations at the Four Seasons to celebrate both Harry's 1st holy Communion and Mother's Day so we were REALLY hoping we did not have to cancel. Kate did not have flu so we gave her some ibuprofen and ran out to brunch....

We had an absolutely fabulous time at brunch.  I have to say that my boys are going to be the best husbands and fathers. My husband has been such a great role model for them. They have such beautiful manners and etiquette in these situations.  I was very proud of them.

After brunch, Kate and I took a nap. The boys went swimming with some friends. Then later in the day, the kids gave me a very special gift. Dave and the boys went into my flickr account and printed my favorite photos of the kids and had them framed to hang on our wall. It was very touching. Dave also got us a small flat screen TV for the kitchen (which we all LOVE).

Harry presented me with this "magazine"



He put the number one reason he loved me on a bookmark and it said,
"Because she always makes time for me." It made me cry.

I had another spectacular Mother's Day. My family made me feel like the luckiest woman on earth!

Tomorrow, I will post about my visit with Diana!


  1. Kim... you are beyond blessed with your three beautiful children and wonderful husband! What a special Mothers Day! I love the book from Harry! I could just squeeze him, he is so sweet!

  2. What a special post! You are blessed beyond words. I loved how Harry described that you "take pictures of him"! His gift was so precious- one to save for a lifetime for sure. HOpe Kate is feeling better- glad you were able to have brunch at Four Seasons. We have eaten brunch there and I would hate for anyone to have to miss it :)


    I wouldn't expect anything less.. you have an AMAZING family.
    Have a great week.
    Can't wait to see your weekend with Diana..

  4. You are so, so blessed. I'm glad y'all had such a wonderful weekend together, despite Kate feeling under the weather.

    And... I had to laugh at the "her face is so butiful." Because my daughter - in that same situation - would probably write "her face is so buttiful." Which wouldn't be nearly as sweet.

  5. What a wonderful gift from Harry!

    I'm glad you had a good mother's day and I hope Kate is feeling better.

    Went to PFP workshop this weekend - I would love to download with you sometime!

  6. Oh does not get any sweeter than that! You have to stop posting these cute little stories about are making me want to try for number 4 in hopes of a little boy!! In all seriousness though you are so incredibly I'm sure you know! :)

  7. sounds like it was a spectacular Mothers Day except for Kate being sick. That is wonderful the boys are so well behaved in such places.
    You are very blessed:) Hope Kate is feeling better this week!

  8. That is amazing! I hope I am as great of a mom to my kids, in the future!!!

  9. Your boys are so cute! I am so glad your daughter is feeling better! Happy Belated Mother's day!!
