Happy Mother's Day!

We kept the tradition alive, except this year I had two little helpers in the kitchen. Audrey is really good with just about every step involved in making the waffles but the egg cracking (which she claims scares her), while Charlie contributed some well supervised whisking. He did a good job staying quiet and letting Mama sleep in, which earned him high marks for the morning. That and dressing like a chef with his sister.

Audrey thought it would be a good idea to make the waffles look pretty, so we came up with a sun design. This is the kind of special treatment you get around here when it's your day.

Mama was "surprised" when we came upstairs with a delicious breakfast for her to enjoy in bed. Between wrangling kids and opening presents, it's not easy to to actually get to the breakfast-in-bed part of the tradition.

It's always nice when both kids (especially Charlie) can settle down long enough to pose for a picture with us.

Audrey has the last word. Happy Mother's Day, Mama!
