Mother's Day Morning

What a beautiful Mother's Day I had. Thanks to the long-standing tradition of having breakfast in bed! Jake started that when I was pregnant with Tyler, (my first Mother's Day of sorts). It's been a special time each year and now as the children get older they too can join in the fun! They were so excited to open the door and bring me my tray of food and their little hand-made cards.
My heart was full.

After breakfast we went to church and then home for naps. For dinner we went to Ruby Tuesdays and then did some shopping. Jake bought me a lovely purple dress and the blingingest pink *diamond* watch, it's huge and gaudy and just perfect!! *We'll just all pretend they're real okay?? Pretend with me, won't you?* It has my initials on it!!!

Okay, okay, it's actually the name of the designer, Jaclyn Smith, but one again, we're pretending's actually made JUST for me!!!

As I went to bed on Sunday night I realized I hadn't opened the refrigerator door ONCE that day.....I can't remember the last time that happened, or if it EVER happened before!! I was served all day long! Thank you Baby for my AWESOME DAY!! I love you to the moon and back.

Speaking of loving to the moon and back....I haven't even begun to talk about MY MOM and how wonderful she is. Only now, as I get older and have more children do I realize HOW AMAZING MY MOTHER IS. For Mother's Day I told her that I'd like to host a "high tea" for her and 3 of her friends. It will be an HONOR to SERVE her for once!! Even just last week she came by with jars full of homemade strawberry jelly. Ever faithful in her kindness toward all 8 of her children. WE RISE UP AND PRAISE HER!!!! I love you Mom and nothing I could ever do could "repay" you for all you've done for me, for our family and for all of those that have the joy of knowing you!!!!

Well, it's 2:30 on Thursday and I better be on my way. I'm going to the beach this weekend with 9 of my girl-friends and I don't have a thing packed. Oh well, if all I have is my new purple dress and my blinging watch, I'll be just fine!!!

Happy Weekend to you each!!

In justice to her fame
Has ever reached half high enough
To write a mother's name."

I love that picture of you and the kiddos in bed (please tell me you had a least put a LITTLE makeup on and did something with your hair for that picture). If not, you wake up amazingly beautiful!!!!!
