Mother's Day 2013

My Mother's Day started out with a wonderful breakfast made by my wonderful husband.
 My gifts! Piper loved helping her daddy pick out the gifts.
 She made this at Mrs. Baker's. I LOVE it!!!!! She said she colored the flower pink & green because it is mine & hers favorite color. She hid this in her room until Mother's day. 
Then Beau said no cleaning for me. :) 
The people that call me "mommy". 
The people that make me smile everyday & fill my heart with joy.
My perfect kids: Piper & Paxton! 
What a BLESSING it is to be a mommy!

 Me & my girl! She is my pal!
 My first Mother's Day with my boy! My little sweetie!
 Can't go without giving thanks to the one who helps me parent & love these kids & the one who supports me spending every single day with them. 
After church Beau & I watched my movie "Safe Haven." Wow! So good! Beau even liked the story line.
After the movie Piper had been getting ready to give me a jewelry party. She had had this planned since she & Beau started talking about Mother's Day. She dressed me all up because she said she knew I liked jewelry. What a perfect way to spend my day!

 Then my man grilled some steaks, baked potatoes, made rolls, & salad. DELICIOUS!!
 After that we ate cupcakes & sat by the fire. We played tag with Piper which ended in Beau bending my arm backwards trying to get on base & me landing on the sandbox. Glad it was there to catch my fall. We had so much fun! It's the little things...
Here is my first Mother's Day with Piper (2008) & my first Mother's Day with Paxton (2013).
The only thing that would have made this better is getting to be with my mom. She is the best!
What a great day! I think being a mom has got to be one of the greatest things in the world.
So thankful to be called "mommy."
