: Mother's Day 2011 :

We had a weekend full of festivities :: We were in Vancouver @ my
SIL's place for our celebration for my Mum-in-Law's celebration. It was late and after a long day of celebrations for our nephew Jack's birthday {more on that later} so this was the only shot I got of the evening - Ha! We enjoyed Chinese food ordered in and I made cream brulee - we enjoyed both!

On Sunday we went to church, church is always so good and being there with my Mom was extra nice! After church we headed to our regular brunch place on Mother's day - Fort Langley Golf & Country Club. Here is
Marm with Coley - oh boy, little kids in a room with tables full of food is um, fun!?!?!

Here is my little family

These are the little gaffers that made me a Mama --- Surprises sent by God, not always the way we had planned it, but couldn't imagine life without them!
I woke up to the boys bringing me this box and a lovely new beach hat from Lands End --- however Cole was sure the gift was from Home Depot "What a cool gift from Home Depot Mama!" - Ha! What a guy! I also have a Lands End beach tote coming my way, but was delayed due to the monogram {ooooohhhhh ahhhh!}! Ps. Paul had some good hints as to what I would like as a gift...I gave him options and he definitely did his own thing and did not disappoint!

Once we returned home from brunch we rested together and watched a video then the boys all headed outside to give me some quiet time - I indulged in watching some of my favorite PVR'd shows, gave myself a pedicure & read magazines - BLISS!

Interrupted only by some fresh flowers picked from my garden from my boys...so sweet, thankfully they were tulips and not the normal weeds I usually get ;)
I am blessed beyond measure to have been raised by such an amazing Mom and to be surrounded by fabulous examples of amazing Mom's that I do "mommy-hood" with! I hope y'all had a fabulous Mama's day and know how treasured you are...More precious than rubies, that you are!


** This morning I walked into the basement to find all three buckets of cereal dumped on the floor with diggers being pushed through them. So I'm happy to report all has returned to normal ;) **


: Here & There :

I am here, and I am there, ha ha ha! I knew that April was a busy month for us and B U S Y it was! I was doing SO good posting on my blog in the first part of the Spring and now I'm WAY behind. Oh well!

The good news is life has slowed down considerably and almost daily posting will be happening on here and I'll be catching up on all of the stuff we have been up to! It's been a fun Spring so far and hopefully we'll be seeing more of that big sphere in the sky more and more!

I'll be back later today with a post about Mother's day, I had a great day {weekend} celebrating - hope you did too!
