When I was done eating (I shared as much as I could with them, but they watched while I ate every singe bite), Chase asked me what my chores are because they were going to do them for me today. It was almost too sweet to take advantage of, but then I thought that I wasn't likely to get an offer like that again, so I put them to work.
After that exotic brunch, I was a little concerned when Charles told me there was turtle cheesecake for dessert, but thankfully no real turtles were harmed in the making of my dessert.
There was even entertainment: Jane sent me a mother's day card that plays Cyndi Lauper "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" when you open it, and Chase and Cole thought it was the funniest thing they had ever seen. They danced and sang along all day (I'm amazed the batteries in the card didn't run out), and I think that my two boys dancing around the living room and singing their hearts out to Girls Just Wanna Have Fun is the funniest thing I've ever seen.
You've really got to love the days when you think at the end of the day "Gosh -- these are really great kids," rather than "Gosh -- I wonder if there's a circus out there that would take these kids." Today was definitely not a circus day, although the circus might have been interested in the Cyndi Lauper bit...
A flower Chase made at school and a picture Chase colored (the picture is supposed to be of me and Cole):
This card Cole made me at home. It has a dinosaur that he colored and cut out and glued on, and he "wrote" all over it:
Chase made me this card. He made a sailboat and a rainbow and he made it on pink paper because he says it's my favorite color (notice the kitchen in the background? They had just finished making me breakfast.)
Chase also sent me a Mother's Day email. It must have taken him forever with the way he types, but he was very proud and kept telling me to get on my computer because there was another present on there. Gotta love these guys.

Here he is posing next to a portrait he did of Cole:
Here are Chase and Cole posing with the alligator sculpture Chase made in front of Chase's fish picture.
