Surprising My Mom

My hubby has been hard at work over the last few weeks helping to get my moms backyard fixed up. Weeding, building garden edging and removing dead tree branches.  There were a few trips to home improvement stores, and on one of those trips she mentioned how much she wanted a Buddha statue for her garden (she had a tree removed last year, but the stump was left - she had that spot in mind).

On the long weekend, hubby, the boys and I went to pick up some cages for my veggies, and while we were at the garden center, picked up a Buddha. We went to her place and hubby and the kids snuck into the back to place the Buddha where she wanted it.  She was outside talking to a neighbour, and when the kids yelled hi she turned around.

She was SHOCKED when she saw the Buddha :)

  4. He sits perfectly on the old tree stump and looks pretty happy with himself too. What a nice way to surprise your mom. :-)

  5. What a cute story, I love being able to do stuff like that.
