Happy Mother’s Day! I really wanted to write this post yesterday, but I just couldn’t force myself to stay up past 10:30 to work on it. It’s been a very exhausting weekend! It’s been a very exhausting month, actually. I’ve been really busy working on something which I will (hopefully) announce later today. 🙂
Anyway! Mother’s Day – it was really nice this year. Very low key and relaxing. I really enjoyed being able to just spend time with my family at our homes, just hanging out.
Because we were out late on Saturday night the boys actually slept until almost 8:00 – a miracle! (Except that they also appear to be sleeping in that late today, when Caden needs to be at school at 8:00 – not fair!) I wanted to have a delicious, but very easy breakfast, so I picked up a bunch of fancy donuts and pastries at the farmer’s market on Saturday morning. Of course I ate two of those pastries before I ever got home! But I definitely enjoyed my chocolate croissant on Mother’s Day.
I got the boys gigantic sprinkled donuts, which Greg made them split. Good stuff, though. I pretty much ate carbs and only carbs all weekend. And then I looked at these pictures last night and realized I seriously need to lose some weight! So this was my last hoorah.
FYI, when you’re about to have tons of pictures taken of you, you should probably put on some makeup. Oh well. Here are my babies giving me my special presents.
Caden and Daddy made me a button picture of Caden and I holding hands!! I thought it was pretty funny when I opened it – I can’t believe Greg sewed something! Who knew. It was very sweet and I’ll treasure it forever. 🙂
The card Caden made me with a small, medium, and large real life looking hearts.
Shepard’s cards for me. He was in quite the silly photogenic mood yesterday.
Button picture from Shepard!
Shepard is quite excited about this!
I got a pink shelf that I really wanted to hang near my sewing area. I’m slowly pulling it all together.
And a sun umbrella so I can spend more time outside without getting cranky. 🙂 I know most of the world does not agree with my feelings, but I seriously HATE being out in the hot sun with no relief. Summer weather is my least favorite. I hate being hot. Hopefully with this portable shade I’ll feel more inclined to go out!
And a candle (that came with the shelf) that the boys spent ten minutes passing back and forth and smelling.
There we go – ready for the day and looking a little better! 🙂 Time for my annual mother sons photo shoot. It was too cold to do it outside this year. Stupid Wisconsin weather only knows how to be super cold or super hot. We hardly ever have those perfect in between days anymore.
