WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

A group of moms in Wichita Falls got a pleasant surprise Thursday afternoon from their very own kids.

In the US mothers day falls on Sunday, May 13 but for those who are from Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador, Thursday is mom's big day.

Jessica Rivers, a Bilingual ESL teacher at Zundy Elementary, said even though she is from Peru she wanted to inform her students about El Dia de Las Madres through fun activities.

"Most of my student's families are from Mexico so I want them to keep it {tradition} in their heart," Rivers said.

Her students spent the afternoon making gifts for their moms to show them how much they appreciate them.

"We are making flowers and we made key chains because its Mothers Day," Zundy student, Denisse Perez said. 

However, these are not the only type of flowers some Moms across Texoma got on Thursday.

Bebb's Flowers was busy taking calls and getting orders ready since Thursday morning.

"We've been open since 8 and people are just coming in and as I'm taking orders the phone is ringing," Bebb's Flowers Designer, Taylor McCreary said. "It's like we can't get a break."

She adds on Thursday they had about 60 deliveries and all of them she said could not have gotten to their destination without the help of a group of firefighters.

"We rent vans and we'll just load it up with different zip codes and they will go to the different zip codes and just get them out because they're really fast," McCreary said.

She adds they have a close bond with Wichita Falls firefighters so they often help them out during busy holidays like Mothers Day.

McCreary said they've been getting ready for Mothers Day since Monday, and expect an even busier day on Friday.
