Mother's Day

I have had such a wonderful Mother's day!  Actually, it's been a Mother's day weekend for me =)
It started off on Friday when I went to Madeline's school for a Mother's Day Brunch.  The children performed a cute little song for the mommies then presented us with some presents.  Saturday, my sweet friend Pam "borrowed" the kids for a couple hours then returned them to me with presents in tow!  They made me the most adorable heart plaques and bracelet.  (um, yea I was in tears)  This morning, Jack woke me bright and early at 6am to give me his special gift he made me at school.  Once Madeline woke up, they gave me the rest of the presents that Meme ( my mom) took them to the store to get for me.  I have been spoiled and feel so special!  I love my kids and love that I get to be their mommy!

The kids with the plaques they made those little silly faces!

my heart plaques and beach bag (thanks Pam for being such a thoughtful and wonderful friend!)

More goodies that the kids picked out just for me. 

I wanted to cook lunch for my mom and my mother in law so I had them over this afternoon.  My brother-in-law and father-in-law grilled out and I took care of the side dishes.  We had a wonderful afternoon.

I used the gifts from the kids as my decorations. ;)

My Jack and me...finally got him to take a break from playing a game of catch outside to take a picture with mommy.

One last picture of the kids with me and my mom.

Below is a little video of Madeline and some of her classmates singing the special song at the Mother's day brunch.  (Be sure to pause the music player at the bottom) 

I am so blessed with wonderful women in my life who are exceptional role models for me.  I am so blessed to be the mommy to 2 wonderful children.  I am definetly, so blessed.
