On Saturday night our church hosted a Mother/Son Banquet. I took four very handsome dates with me. (Although when I was making Elias put on church clothes for the event on a SATURDAY…he whined, “Ah Mom…why do you want me to look handsome?” He much preferred the holey sweat pants he was wearing.)
The banquet included a nice meal (which included plenty of food since there were so many BOYS at the event), a music video, and a couple of ladies sharing some stories about raising boys (I was one of them). To end the evening, they asked any of the sons who wanted to share something about their mom to come on up to the microphone.
That was my favorite part. Some of the little boys shared some pretty sweet things about their moms.
But here is my favorite. The little guy got up to the mike and said,
“Once my mom and I went to a movie when I was really little. I fell asleep in her lap and she didn’t leave me there to go to the bathroom or let me fall off of her lap. That’s how I know she loves me.”
Is that the cutest?! :)
The night ended with the boys bringing roses to their moms. Because of the volume of boys I am mother to…I ended up with a whole bouquet! Yay for me!
I was a little nervous to be speaking during the banquet…therefore I left the house without my camera. (I was concentrating on leaving the house with my notes and the four boys who are my sons.) So…the pics of the flowers are all I have to show you for now! A couple of others took pictures of us though and hopefully I can show them to you soon!
Even though I don’t have pictures to prove we were at this wonderful event..I’m very grateful for the opportunity to make special memories with my sons!
