Happy Mother's Day!

First off, I want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to 2 wonderful ladies in my life, my momma & my mother in law. You both are such amazing women who love their families & have been great examples to both Nick & I. I love you both so much!

And now, let me tell you about my Mother's Day.
(Well, it was really more of a Mother's Weekend than a Mother's Day.)

It started on Friday when there was a knock on the door & these 2 dozen roses were waiting for me.

And then a few hours later, this giant red box was delivered.

Curious as to what was in the box??? I know I was!
It's this really cool picture frame collection from Red Envelope. It's so nice, but I have no idea where to hang it just yet. Anyone have a suggestion?

And when I picked up Addy from school, I had even more Mother's Day surprises.
A card that Addy made at school

And a cute little planter that she painted at school. The butterflies on it are her fingerprints.

On Saturday, I got the kids to help me wash my car. I told them it was a great Mother's Day present for me.

Sunday morning, we woke & were hanging around the house. Nick told the kids, "You know today is Mother's Day." Alex said "Oh yea, I love my mommy!" He's such a sweetie!

I asked Alex "What do you want to do for Mother's Day?" And he told me "Well, I already washed your car yesterday!" Lol! That he did! I guess he's all settled up then!

But when Nick suggested that we go swimmming, both him & Addy said "YES!" (So I guess Alex could do one more small favor for me on Mother's Day. He would go swimming, but only if mommy really really wanted him to, lol.)

And so I spent Sunday swimming, eating, playing in the back yard, laying out & reading! Basically, I got to have a lazy & relaxing day with my family. I even had time to organize my Pinterest boards!!!

I couldn't have asked for a better Mother's Weekend & I definitely couldn't ask for a better family. I'm not sure how, but somehow out of all the kids in the world, I have the 2 most amazing ones! I absolutely love being a mother to my sweet sweet kids!
