A day to feel loved

I awoke on Sunday morning to the sound of my kiddos running around in the house and my husband bustling around. Could it be? My family is up before me? That means I got to SLEEP IN!!! What a great start to Mothers Day. Next was a beautiful pancake breakfast and homemade floral arrangements. Troy read a list of the activity ideas and gifts that he and the kids had come up with. The kids favortite though was that I was not to do a bit of work all day. I couldn't even wipe the table after breakfast. Then it was off to the mall to do a little shopping. I got an awesome kitchen knife and a new workout outfit. It was fun just to have everyone at the mall with me. How cute! We finished off a really fun day with dinner at the park with all teh cousins and then banana splits at Auntie Pattis. What a glorious day. I couldn't have planned it better myself.

Mimi's school had a tea for Mothers Day. We did a statio rotation and go tto make things together, listen to a story, have a snack and take pictures. They say some really cute mommy songs too.

Joshua made me a portrait of me. It was so cute with all of its details. He was very proud of his artistic abilities.

It was truly a fantastic day! I love being a mom!
