Mother's Day 2016

Love this piece I was commissioned to make!

My Mother's Day weekend was perfect: I got a bit of a sleep in, breakfast in bed, cards and presents from the kids, a hike, a swim, a bath, and I didn't have to clean up after dinner.

When the kids got off the bus Friday afternoon, Little K thrust a brown paper bag into my hands. It was a "sunflower". She was worried it would die if she left it in the bag until Sunday. She also gave me this:

MothersDay_Questions
Funny what she came up with.
Little J wrote me a nice note and gave me a picture of him holding a flower he made. Cute, eh?

Feel free to steal this idea.
My parents came by in the morning. We hadn't seen them in a while so it was nice to chat and catch up. They're currently in Atlanta visiting my brother, his wife, and their new baby.

Me and my mom.
I thought it was hilarious that, after lunch, when the kids were playing nicely in the living room, J passed out on the couch.

Too funny!
But I was able to sneak upstairs to read in the tub.

Ahh!

I've learned over the years that if I don't ask for it, I'll never get pictures of myself (that I don't take myself) so I got J to take one of me with the kids. You think they could just smile? Nope.

Crazy kids.
While J cleaned up after dinner, we had a dance party in the living room and played in the sunshine. It was nice.

Everyone sit on mom!
Even though Mother's Day is over, I keep getting little things with a "Happy Mother's Day!" shouted at me. Poor Little K is going through a thing and is having a hard time with me being out so many evenings. She made this card one of those nights.

MothersDay_Note
Sad face.
And the kids picked some purple flowers from the front for me last night.

MothersDay_PurpleFlowers
Pretty in purple.

I hope all my mom friends had a good Mother's Day too!
