Obligatory Mother's Day Post


I don't remember a whole lot about Mother's Day last year.  Addison & Mackenzie were just a month old, Jeremy was just going back to work, and basically, it was still a struggle just to get through each day.  Life was a blur.  I think we went to Jeremy's parents' house for dinner, and I have a couple of not-so-great pictures with my two little bugs.  Do y'all remember how hard it was to get good pictures with newborns?  You're either bending at an awkward angle to hold their heads up and support little bodies, or you're getting a picture of the inside of their nose because they're laying on the floor/couch/bed all the time. 

Thank goodness for children that can hold themselves (mostly) upright this year!

Mama & Mackenzie

Addison and Mackenzie gave me a great Mother's Day present and slept until 7:15.  Those girls really know how to start mama's day off right!  If that had been a work day, I so would have been late, since I use them as my alarm clock most mornings.  (It would have been totally worth it though!)  Luckily, we still had plenty of time to get to church. 

After church, Jeremy grilled steaks and vegetables for lunch.  Those were our first grilled steaks of the season, and now it feels like the summer season has begun! Then, because I have such an amazing husband, I got to take a long afternoon nap.  In my bed.  All alone. 

Kisses for Addison

I also have a very nice new gift to take to the beach next week, thanks again to that wonderful husband of mine...Addison and Mackenzie got me a Kindle for Mother's Day!  Jeremy had a strong suggestion on this one, and he didn't let me down!  I was unsure how I would feel about reading books on an electronic device, but as many online friends reassured me, I LOVE it.  I can easily read with only one hand free...like when the other is wrapped around a sleeping baby I don't want to disturb.   I think my Kindle may be my new best friend.


Besides these three, of course.  'Cause they pretty much make my day.
