Today was a Roller Coaster

The day started out a bit on the rocky side with Ava being awake when I got home at 12:30am. Next her sister was up and we were in full awake mode by 1am. After we all settled in Olivia's bed O was out like a light but Ava continued to think it was party time until approx 3:30 when I finally passed out and I think she did too.
So needless to say my Mother's Day started again at an unknown time as I threw my alarm clock on the floor at about 3:20am as it was mocking me.
You can't stay mad when 2 faces are stuck in yours saying Happy Mother's Day Mama-come open your presents a few hours later. My oldest has been wanting to open her presents for days. I got some beautiful and very fitting cards. One with a monkey and girl in a tutu on the front. Inside it says-Happy Mother's Day from me and my sister. Love Olivia and Ava- Fitting on a day like today.I always ask for plants, indoor or out, now because I just shouldn't have food/candy type gifts. I used to have a ton of plants but now I have the beast so the plants are mostly gone or in high places. Dear Mr Fooseberry did well this time giving me a Gardenia topiary. It smells awesome. Now to keep it alive and flowering!?!?!

I also was surprised with a drive by gifting from Carlie my sweet God daughter. She gave me a beautiful hand made card and a Fuchsia plant ( which I love BTW) It will be the perfect accessory from my deck. See the blooms above.

After a breakfast cooked by Dad we all went to the playground and played some Soccer in this beautiful weather. It may rain for 10 more days so we had to get out. We are also hoping to tire out Ava so she sleeps-How can they survive on 3-4 hrs of sleep? I am hanging on by the rim of my Click container.

I hope you all had a great Mother's Day with your Moms and babies.
