my mother's day.

May 09, 2011

I love my munchkins.
 and that sums up my mother's day.
 The kids and I woke up and tackled
 some morning errands
 which entitled fruit slicing and lots of kisses.
they reminded me it was mother's day 
say oh, every ten minutes?
 "you're the best, mom"
"it's mothers day, let's party!"
we went over to my mom's for brunch
 around eleven where we exchanged gifts
 and ate lots of good food.
Daddy got off work
and we headed to his family's house where
 we enjoyed a delicious dinner.
thanks to everyone
 for everything.

 these are the finished flower holders I made.
 one for each my mom, grandma and mother in law.

 breakfast bake frittata!
 mom made it.

 fresh fruit salad
 I made a honey lemon dressing to drizzle.
 orange cake
 with icing!

 blueberry, poppy seed 
and strawberry muffins!

 meet grandma
 she's pretty hip.

 meet jj.
 he's my best friend.
meet sissy and mom.
 cool ladies.

 this is a remake of a shot
 taken when adriana was teeny tiny.
(four generations)

mom & kids.
 jj is insanely tall. weird.
 mommy and munchkins.
 they have my whole heart.

 the reason I can even celebrate being a mommy.
 and what a lucky mommy I am.


  1. Happy Mother's Day! I love the flower holders you made, they're gorgeous. <3 Great job, and I'm glad you had a great day! Hugs!

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed your Mother's Day. The actual day for me stunk. I ended up doing the usual plus maybe a few more chores - I think I got ripped off, LOL!

  3. Happy Mother's Day! Looks like it was lovely!
