Mother's Day 2018

I had a fantastic Mother's Day again this year. Thomas and the boys spoiled me!

I got to stay in bed and "sleep in" kinda/ know how that goes...but didn't have to get up super early. I got breakfast in bed and the boys brought me a flower each, and I didn't have to get any kids ready for church. All I had to do was take a super long, hot shower and get myself ready without rushing around checking on everyone else. #Heaven

My sweet sons

So happy to be their Mama

My boys!
They were dressed as "quads" LOL!

We went to church and heard a great message about pouring our time and energy into the kids, not just our own, but all the kids in our congregation, so that they have meaningful adult relationships that bring them back to worship after high school.

When we left church, we went out to go lunch as a family and got comments about how coordinated we were (thanks to Thomas) and another Mom and I got to exchange Mother's Day pleasantries and laughs about kids eating habits and such. HA!

That afternoon, I got to lay down and take a NAP! Yes, that happened. It was awesome. Then we went to the pool for a quick dip. Our pool just opened on Saturday and we were excited to check it out in our new neighborhood.

Sunday evening, MaSha joined us for dinner so that we could celebrate her! Thomas grilled us a delicious dinner and we got to eat outside and enjoy this gorgeous spring weather. It was a fun evening!


I made chocolate covered strawberries for dessert!

FaceTiming with Leece and Madison

Silly boy

Mother's Day always makes me miss my own Mom terribly. This year we didn't go out to the garth, but she was on my mind. I can't even describe how much she would completely adore my boys. If only she was here to be with us. Her memory will continue to live on.
