Happy Mother's Day! I had a great day here!! It started on Saturday when Aaron and I made Chocolate Mousse Cakes. While we were building them, Noah fell asleep, standing up! It was so funny. His little thumb fell out of his mouth. After a while and I couldn't resist stuffing a little mousse in there for him to enjoy! He didn't even notice. What a goofball!
Aaron let me sleep in and he gave the kids breakfast and a bath. Yea!! That was so nice! Thanks Aaron. Arwen sang to me with all of the primary kids in Sacrament meeting. She was such a princess. She sure is a cute, sweet, little girl. (Check out my neclace...Aaron and the kids made it for me for Mother's Day. It is so pretty!)
We came home and Aaron barbecued chicken and onions for dinner. It was delicious! Even Noah ate everything on his plate...which is HUGE!! Later on, we enjoyed our yummy mousse cakes. Noah turns any type of dessert into a "Happy Birthday" and runs to where we keep the candles and gets himself one and asks for fire! What a cutie!

Wow what a good hubby you have. What is the necklace made out of? I like it. Is that an azalea behind you and Arwen? Nice.

Okay...Aaron could explain it better, but he finds these poplar trees when he takes walks at lunch and finds these round burrs (I think that's what they are called) growing on them. He brings them home and spends hours sanding them and then he drilled holes in them and strung them as a necklace for me.
Yeah, we have 8 or 9 azaleas in th backyard...all different colors. Oregon is soooo pretty in the spring time!

They are burl, but baby burl. I've been calling them burrs (for burl singular) but I guess that's not technically correct, burr is the British term for burl. So anyway I collect small burl and sand and polish them into beads. That necklace that Sarah has on took over a year to make after collecting, curing, sorting, and sanding the burl.
