    1) Take my mom out to breakfast at one of the not so swanky restaurants in Norwich, but nice enough to get great food.
    2) Let my girlfriend take a nap while I watch the kids before she goes into work, on a sunday.
    3) When she gets home from work give her an hour and a half full body massage, with a happy ending (for her)!!

    First I am going to let my wife sleep in by taking our two year old downstairs.
    Then I am going to make her her favorite coffee drink - a white chocolate mocha.
    Finally I will send our kid nextdoor to our neighbors, draw a hot bubble bath, and light some candles. And well, you can imagine the rest. : )

    For my mom:
    Send her a card made by the kids.
    Send her some pictures she hasn't seen printed off.
    Email a video of the kids to make her smile

    For me...
    a back rub, not having to cook, and lots of snuggles with my sweeties

    1. Get up before my wife to make her breakfast and get the kids to sign her card, and give her the card and gift.
    2. Take my wife out to whatever should wants to do/eat.
    3. Call my mom (sent her card and gift via USPS last week) to tell her thanks for being my mom and just chat with her for a while. --> We don't do that much, and I know how much she likes it.

    My top 3...

    1) For my mom every year I find the wackiest stuffed animal I can and give it to her... along with a card saying thanx for being my mom.
    2) For my mom-in-law, I send a card and flowers... and a thanx for my wife note somehow.
    3) For my wife, this year the kids and I spent the day digging a hole, putting a liner in it, and.... making about a 140gal fish/koi pond (filter and fountains and all that other stuff)... kids (four of them from 2-7 years old) had fun playing in the 'pool' I dug for them (now I just need to figure out how to keep them out of it).
