mother's day madness


have i ever mentioned that i have the best kids in the entire world? well, i'm pretty sure i do. for mother's day emma set her alarm for 6am to get up to make me breakfast in bed. which she made all by herself. (did i mention i love this age?!) she even made it with my whole wheat light bread. gotta love that girl. and another big thank you to my sister for getting emma that paula dean kid's cookbook for christmas. you're the best!
torrey came down during our family breakfast in bed to shower me with her presents. i got this hand painted flower pot & some other handmade goodies. i loved the book of coupons with things like, "i won't complain for one whole day" or "good for taking out all of the trash for one day". i thought it particularily funny that almost all of the coupons expired may 11th. lol.

stan got a couple of shots of the girls and i for me. my favorite mother's day gift every year.


figured i'd put up the cards i made. this one was for my mom to go with the metal flying pig metal yard art thingy we got her. hee hee. it goes with the chicken that has it's own story to tell.
we also packed our mother's day with a surprise 30th birthday party we threw for our friend. it was so fun, i'm thinking we're going to have to have a party on mother's day every year.

and today... i feel like i dove into a whole new phase of parenting taking torrey to her first ever orthodontist appointment. crazy. she's getting an expander in for her crossbite. she was really excited until we walked into the office and it "smelled like the dentist." and that smell always makes her nervous. but they were so amazing. i was so impressed with the doc and all of the staff. they eased her worries, were super nice and treated her like a queen. i love it when you find amazing docs to work with! (nevermind that the picture turned out making the ortho look kinda scary. lol)

hope your mother's day was amazing!!!

I know I don't comment often, but I read your posts regularly and enjoy them. I saw the pig on your mom's blog and remembered the chicken story. LOL

You have a beautiful family!

awe thanks guys. the headband is from the forever 21 accessory store. and the necklace was from an antique store/flea market, though i think it may originally be from a barbie box. :)
