Last night's headache led to a short night of sleep... and so when Ellen came in at 7:30 this morning, I gave in to PBSKids for a little more sleep.  Little did I  know that more was going on than just PBSKids.... 
When I came out at 9 a.m., my two girls were hard at work making me breakfast in bed... complete with a homemade card by Ellen and cold caffeine! 
I opted to enjoy it in the living room with them.  We all enjoyed apple pie spice French toast that Emme created and when we were done, the girls did all the dishes and wiped down the kitchen.  

I think I have the world's most amazing 11 year old and 7 year old!!

continuing my list of gifts on this Multitude Monday....
