I am really struggling with him about to be turning 5!!!
"let's make funny faces mama"
getting ready to perform with his class
a little video of his class singing
This makes me laugh. They were taking turns playing a game on someone's cell phone.
Waiting to be served some pizza.
My gift included a hand towel with his handprint on it. It says "I love you mama".
I love this!
Later that afternoon I snapped this photo of Ben playing in my shoes. He said "look daddy, I'm mama going to work in the village". ha

Saturday we did just what I wanted to do- nothing! We had a lazy day at home just hanging out together.
My beautiful roses sitting on my table.
It was hot that day so we spent a lot of time out back in the pool. They were in and out of it all day.
He likes to "move it move it". (Ben was being Alex the lion)
my table for Mother's Day morning breakfast
I had gifts and homemade cards waiting for me.
me and my boys on Mother's Day morning
I cooked French toast and bacon with strawberries.
Of course I had to make the boys breakfast fun so I cut theirs and made a smiley face.
my cards from the boys
This made me smile.
We took a few photos after breakfast.
There is no greater joy than being a mom!
The kids practiced a song while in the back and came out to perform it during the service.
I loved seeing my little ones participating with the group.
I had pasta. David had grilled chicken and the boys had cheese quesadillas. It turned out to be a great Mother's Day meal.
We were late eating lunch, late returning home, and late taking naps. That meant the boys had a lot of energy to burn before bedtime. We took them next door to swim and we stayed until almost dark. It was a great way to end my weekend of celebrating!

There are days when I don't think my life could get any more chaotic or stressful. There are days when I just want to sit and cry. There are days when I think I'm just not cut out for motherhood. But, then there are special days like this that remind me just what an honor it is to be called a Mom. I am very thankful and blessed to have two beautiful, healthy children. There were many years when I did not think I would ever get this privilege. Thank you God for the blessing of children and for making me a mom!
