Mother's Day

I woke up to special treatment this morning (after a special shopping spree yesterday)!  A hot cup of chai was delivered to me in bed, and while I enjoyed it, the dishes I left in the sink overnight (yes, I do that sometimes, more often than I will admit actually) were cleaned, the toys were all put away, and the kids' bathroom was cleaned.  That was all fantastic!

Later in the morning, we went to Grandma Susan's house for a wonderful brunch.  It was so nice to see everyone and enjoy a beautiful day together.

I didn't get pictures of everyone.

 Reagan made me this Mother's Day card in school.  I love that it reflects her interests with the peace sign and One Direction features.

Collin wrote this about me in school.  He can be SO sweet.  I love everything he wrote, and this just makes me want to bake something special for him!!!

I have had a great day.  I guess I could have done without Katelyn's poop incident (I won't even write out the details), and maybe I could have done without the bickering and the grumpy moments the kids had, but that's part of motherhood.  I'm so very grateful for my children, and I truly cherish every minute with them.
