Mother's Day 2013

Here are a few family pictures we took on Saturday morning.

David had planned to do Bible study in the village of Nearar Sunday morning but late Saturday evening they called and said they needed to cancel.  That left us without a place to go so we just spent the day at home.  It was a lazy day and I enjoyed it very much.  We played games (Cruz loves Connect Four).  We read books.  We colored.  We played ball.  The kids played in the kiddie pool.   We just took it easy.

This was my Mother's Day gift. 
David always makes me homemade cards for my birthday and Mother's Day.  Cruz helps him.  I look forward to seeing what they come up with each time.

He and Cruz also made me this.  I love it! 

Our lunch consisted of grilled chicken strips, zucchini casserole, and homemade macaroni and cheese.  I had a Dr. Pepper to go with mine. 

After eating it was nap time.  The boys both slept extra long.  So much so that we were wanting to wake them up because we got bored.  You know it's bad when you want to wake a sleeping Cruz!!!  ha ha 
This is Ben during nap time.  He has started sleeping with his legs hanging out of the bed rails.  The only problem is he gets hung up sometimes during the night and will cry out for us to come rescue him.

Here is another recent picture of him sleeping that way.  He cracks us up.

Supper consisted of leftovers.

We also ended the day with a batch of homemade vanilla ice cream.  It was yummy!

I enjoyed getting to spend the whole weekend celebrating Mother's Day.  I love being a mom!  I am very thankful God allowed me to have children.  I am very blessed with my two boys.  It's a HARD job raising them and there are days when I am completely exhausted (more days than not), but what a joy and privilege it is.
