My Mother's Day...

I had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! It started off by my sister in law Melanie and I going out Friday night to do a little shopping, have dinner and then go see a movie. It was fun and so nice to have a night out. 

Saturday morning my son Cole and I were up bright and early to go do Highway clean up with the Youth of our Ward (check that out here). Later on Saturday the kids came home and gave me flowers and a card. Kent and the kids tidied up the house as well. 

Sunday morning I woke up to breakfast being made and brought to me. It was YUMMY! Tyson gave me his gift he had made for me at school...very sweet and funny! Kent gave me his gift and it is for a massage...can't wait to use it :)

I called and talked to my Mom on the phone to wish her a Happy Mother's Day. She was over a my sister Emily's house. My Mom is the best!!

We slowly got ready for church (as it is at 11 a.m.) and then headed out the door once we were all ready.
My kids and I!

I wanted a picture with me and all of the kids as we didn't have one. I am not aloud to show our foster kids faces online so I blurred them out.  Being a Mom to 3 GREAT kids and to 2 foster kids has its challenges, but I wouldn't change a thing. I am SO lucky to be Cole, Tyson and Brynley's Mom. And we are so blessed to have our foster kids Nate and Bella in our home. I love being a Mom! 

Sunday we had Kent's Mom Debbie over for Mother's Day dinner and Kent's brother Jeff and his family came over as well (forgot to take  pictures). We had steak, roasted baby potatoes, carrots and onions, buns, Caesar salad, brownie and ice cream with toppings for dessert. It was all so, so good! We played some games and visited for a while.

Life is couldn't get any better than this!! I LOVE my family more than life itself. 

Thank you to Kent and my kids for making me feel so special and pampering me all weekend long!! I love and adore you guys :)

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day as well!!

What a wonderful write up BARB!
Being a MOm is the best no matter the ups and downs...someone once said, just thinking of the alternative of never having children ever is so sad.

I like the saying I saw on FB " I was such a good parent until I started having kids!: LOL

Parenting is a learning, lauging and forgiving process. And so worth it!
Proud of you and your wonderful family!!!

Love you ,
