Sean, that is.  

In the gift giving department, that is.
I got this for our 10th wedding anniversary last year:
Necklace with charm – kids names, our initials and the emerald for May (the month we were married)
This is what I got for Mother’s Day this year:
(whoa – excuse the poor blackberry quality.  My budding photographer has misplaced my camera)
The tacky pretty flowers came from the clearance bin at HomeSense. I know because the big red stickers were not removed.  Eva picked them herself.  I don’t think you can appreciate them fully through a (bad) photograph.  They are about 3 feet long.  And look as plastic as they are.  But I love them and, with Eva, will pick the perfect spot in the new garden for them. 
Cam made the lovely card.  And Cuyler made me a really pretty plasticine scene mounted on a tile.  I think it took him less than 3 minutes after I unwrapped it to peel the plasticine off and make several re-creations with it before he threw it away.  It was a really pretty scene.
Sean got me the clock for the kitchen in the new place.  Well done.
I also received this special letter:


Definitely going in the scapbook.
It was a wonderful day.  Beyond the amazing gifts – I spent the day with my mom, my oldest sister, my niece and nephew.  We were all happy, healthy and together. 
And an added bonus:  it was sunny and there was barely a breeze blowing.
Hmmm…our anniversary is coming up in a couple of weeks.  I wonder if he’ll be able to top last years gift?

    That letter is SO SWEET!!!
