This Mother's Day I have racked up. Hearing Voddie Bauchum Jr. (and hopefully meeting him), Kevin Swanson, and Ken Ham. And getting some other great goodies (which I received early due to our gallivanting across the southeast)...
Nah, I got something nice and shiny but it wasn't jewelry (thank goodness...what is a mom of six little ones going to do with jewelry???). I finally got updated mixing bowls! And a surprise...a mandolin (I think that's right...it's one of those super duper veggie slicer/dicer/julienne things).
The kids enjoyed the bowls as well.
I love my gifts and being able to celebrate fun and practical gifts. For the record, I really don't want jewelry. I hardly wear any except my wedding ring/engagement ring. When we got married I never really though I'd have six children. So, I didn't register for large family items (like a mandolin, very large bowls, etc...plus, we lived in a one bedroom apartment that was about the size of our kitchen now...not conducive to housing large items), so I'm ecstatic when I get practical gifts. They make my everyday normal days go so much more smoother.
