About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Happy May Day!

   The girls had such fun delivering flowers to our neighbors today!  It was raining, so they had to run fast.:)  They rang the doorbell and left flowers as a surprise!

   Clara is looking better! (and Katie is looking pretty cute, too;) )

   Did anyone surprise you with flowers today??

I was just wondering if any kids still did this? I used to do this as a little girl ~ It was so exciting to me! When Noelle gets older I will help her along so she gives flowers on May day too!
Hey, I called you and left a message, at least I hope it was you!!!! Baaahaaahaaa!
I'm glad Clara is looking better~♥

Tim and I will watch Survivor when he gets home and things settle down a bit, it ought to be a couple more hours till he gets home!

Have a great weekend Sweetie!

That is very sweet of your girls to do this! I missed it again this year! One day I will get it together and deliver flowers too!

Hey friend!
This is SO sweet! :)
I wish I was your neighbor....*sniff, sniff*...

I bet the girls did have a blast delivering flowers. You know I have never heard of all the May Day traditions that I have read on the blogs today. I think Lexi would really enjoy making a May Day basket and delivering them to a few neighbors. Next year we will have to do it!!! I'm glad Clara is looking better. Both of your girls are precious!!!

I just have to tell you I enjoyed talking on the phone to you sooooo much!!!!!! That was just too much fun hearing your voice! Hope to talk to you again soon.♥

I loved May Day as a kid, I'm sure the girls had a great time spreading May Day throughout the neighborhood, love the photo of the flowers, tulips are one of my favorites.

Wonderful...I love this tradition!

{Today is our anniversary, so getting flowers on May Day is an annual event!} ;)

Have a lovely weekend!

So sweet! I've never heard of this before...Although I did think of getting the kids to take some to their teachers--then forgot!

Hi Lori
I loved hearing about this tradition. We don't have it over here. How lovely for your neighbours to receive surprise flowers from your lovely girls.
The first Monday in May is a national holiday over here. We call it May Day Monday. We hope to go to a May Day Gala nearby which is usually fun.
Have a lovely weekend.
