I had the best Mother's Day Weekend!
Yes, I said weekend. It shouldn't just be a day it should be a weekend right? ha! Just kidding..(not really)Actually I think it should be changed to Mother's Month...ok I'm pushing it... But I did get pretty spoiled all weekend. My husband got my car detailed Saturday morning(so now it doesn't smell like poop and sour milk) and told me I could hire back my house cleaner(so it won't smell like poop and sour milk)
The older two were with my parents Saturday, so we took the younger ones to Landen's preschool open house and carnival.
A nice sunny day at the preschool carnival...
Landen and his teacher's.
Landen was so excited to show us his classroom decorated with an ocean theme.
Making their own wooden boats...
Then daddy and the kids went home for a nap while I got to spend Saturday afternoon ALONE shopping! I got 3 new dresses and a top! I know, I know...I guess it pays to labor 5x haha! I am SO blessed.
Then on Sunday...
I woke up to 5 little ones snuggling with me...
Landen couldn't wait to give me his card.
(the scribbles on the card say "so much")
and Faith couldn't wait to give me this.... a cute little garden sign she made with a friend the other day....
All dressed up for Mommy! Daddy took this of her, This is one of my favorite dresses!!! A friend bought it for Farrah and now I get to see it again on Finley:)
Every Mother's Day we go to Molly's for breakfast and the kids spoil me with homemade gifts...my fav!
waiting to eat...
Having tea with my girls. Daddy took pictures with his camera phone.
I got lots of love letters, cards and pictures.
The kids decorated me a coffee mug and filled it with all the letters:) They were so proud of themselves...so cute!
They each drew a picture of me:
I didn't realize I was so manly! At least I'm wearing lipstick. I do have short legs and am long waisted but I don't know about the broad shoulders. And why am I mad dogging??? I usually have a cheesy smile don't I??? haha Maybe this was a picture of me when his room was a mess???lol
I do tend to wear too much blush. I guess Faith has noticed. Love the highlights and the chola eye brows. Do I have a long neck? She seems to think so...:)
Landen informed me this is me in my birthday suit...I know scary!lol
We made our rounds to visit all the grandma's...and even got to hold our teeny tiny 4 day old baby niece ava:) She was a month early (only 5lbs) half of what my babies weigh when they came out! I could of stayed there all day holding her...she is soooo sweet.
Proud first time daddy Tyson(Justin's bro) and Farrah with one of her many babies (she's gonna be like her mama, I just know it) She lovvvvves babies!
While I was busy holding baby Ava,Faith was busy making last minute presents for her Grandma and Great Grandma Ryan...
Then it was off to my mom's house for swimming and yummy mexican food:)
Who has the cutest bikini body raise your hand!
I love her in this bikini..thank you to the Achee family:)
My sister took some pictures of Finley in her, I love Mom boy onesie:) ..we couldn't let her be seen in just a plain boy onesie now could we? So we added some accessories and she's all girly again:)
