*Disclaimer: I realize this post is heavily slanted towards Taylor, but not for lack of effort on Ashton's part. She made me some wonderful cards as well, but unfortunately, I ran off and forgot them. So she will get her own special post tomorrow!
Mother's Day 2011 was a success! It started a bit early this year, with the kids bringing home cards and cakes (yes, 2 cakes!) all throughout the week.
On Sunday, I started the day with the kids bringing me cinnamon rolls in bed. They originally wanted to make french toast and bacon, but since I got a wild hair and made homemade cinnamon rolls Saturday night, that was available and quite tasty, if I do say so myself!
Then I opened presents. I got the best card EVER!
The kids told me they had no idea what this card meant, but Joey knew I would appreciate it. They all got me some "sleep" aromatherapy items - which I love! I haven't been sleeping well and Taylor, for one, has been very concerned. Every night he tells me "I hope you have a good sleep, momma!" and then when he wakes up in the morning, he always asks if I slept well. Such a sweetie.
After church we headed to Joey's mom's to celebrate with a yummy steak lunch. I was lucky enough to snag one picture with both kids. (Ashton is not fond of pictures these days, so this is extremely rare!)
After lunch, we headed home for a short time, then Joey had to go to work and the kids and I headed to my parents to celebrate with my mom. My brother and dad made a yummy dinner and we had a great time just hanging out.
Somehow I got away without getting a picture with my momma, but I did manage to get a picture with my one child who will still allow it.
It was a really great day. The kids were so thoughtful, as was Joey.
Thanks, baby, for getting up early to go to church. I know you need your sleep, but I truly appreciate the sacrifice. I love you. Thanks for making me a momma!
