Happy Mother's Day!

I had the BEST Mother's Day ever this year!! It started off with a very special Mom's Day Tea, put on by Camryn's Kindergarten class. They had the tables set with hand-made placemats, painted mugs with flowers and then served us cookies with strawberries and punch! They even had a video of all the kids saying something special about their moms! The teachers outdid themselves, but it was so cute to see how excited the kids were!

Then I decided to host a '1st Annual Mother's Day Tea' (kinda last minute) so our family could celebrate on Saturday and have all te girls together. You all know I LOVE to do this kind of stuff, so I had a blast! We will do it again next year for sure, so anyone who can make it is more than welcome!

Everyone enjoying the beautiful day!

On Sunday, I woke up (at 8:00, no less!) with the smell of bacon in the air, my husband missing next to me, and the pitter patter of kid feet. I decided I would cherish every moment, so I whipped out my Better Homes & Gardens and waited...
Here's what was waiting for me in the kitchen after I opened the hand-strung bracelet from Tyler and necklace from Cam:

It was sooo nice! Everything was simply beautiful and delicious! What a great idea Aly!! Leave it to you to figure a way to celebrate all the moms and still get Mother's Day to yourself!! Way to go! Hope this tradition grows each year and stays around for a long time! Thanks baby.
