Happy Mother's Day!

We had a nice Mother's Day over here in Zambia... They don't really celebrate this holiday, and a bunch of Mzungu's over here got caught off guard, but not us... The girls and their daddy headed down to Game (our version of Walmart) looking for just the perfect gift. We walked down endless aisles, not knowing what to get that would be perfect for our Perfect. Alas, we came to the candy/snack aisle and then it came back... The "it" I am referring to is that tradition for holidays that we would find at the dollar store, where it isn't the price behind the present, but the thought and meaning in the present. And so we went crazy. Daddy bought a "P.S. I love you" candy bar for obvious reasons. Bradyn got Oreos, Julia got Sour Cream and Onion Pringles and Kamryn bought pretzels. And then , to top it off, we got , from all of us, a whisk!!! Oh, yes, eat your heart out! It was fun, and Stephanie has been extra happy the past two days. She is an amazing mom and we look forward to adding to the mom -factor in a few more months.
