My wonderful Mother's Day started off last night. Todd bought me Lavendar Vanilla massage lotion from Bath and Body works and gave me a full massage in the candlelight. There is not better way to fall asleep. This morning, I got to sleep in, a luxury for every mom, and then I got dressed and Noah and Drew took me to breakfast at Starbucks. The boys gave me some adorable gifts and cards and I had to take a picture of a few of the things. I'm sorry they turned out blurry and hard to read. I'm too tired to go back and try again! This first is from Drew. They had to spell out MOTHER and fill in descriptions about us. I thought it was sweet.
These next two pages were questions asked by Noah's kindergarten teacher and she wrote in the answers. I laughed out loud and some of them. If you know me, you'll get the humor!
This is the boys with Grandma Tunie. Her and Grandpa Ken and Scott came over for lunch and Todd spoiled us with shrimp, ribs, new york strip steak, garlic bread, Third Street fries, and the Olive Garden salad. For dessert he made Crepes Suzette. MMM, lunch was a piece of heaven and we felt spoiled. During the afternoon, Aiden napped and the rest of place played games, watched tv and relaxed. Todd took a much deserved nap!
We went to my brother and sister in laws for dinner with her family and mine. My brother made delicious chicken on the grill, roasted potatoes, and we had asparagus, fruit salad, salad and for dessert, Todd made a Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake that was to die for. The boys had a blast playing and we had fun entertaining Ellie.

Me and my Godson (and nephew!), Tyler. I love his smile. (I'm upset that I didn't get one of Beth and Noah together, I'll have to do that next time I see them) Me and My Boys (could ya keep the tongue in Noah??)
We always like to do a goofy shot. I think we succeeded in looking silly!!
It was honestly one of the best Mother's Days I've ever had. I feel so loved, so lucky, and so blessed to have the family I have. My hubby made me one lucky woman when he married me and even more so when he gave me my three incredible boys. They are the best gifts in my life and even on the worst of days, I wouldn't trade my life for anything. Sometimes being the only female in the house is a good thing. I'm "their girl" and they take pretty good care of me.
