What a busy Mother's Day we had!
In addition to feeling very blessed, as a mother myself....I also got to spend the day with other mothers. All of these women are people I respect, love and admire. I am surrounded by women who are
perfecting the art of motherhood and I am blessed to have such Godly examples to follow.
Our day started off with church and Sunday school....
The men in our class were charged with bringing the fixins for a "mother's day brunch." Josh did quite well at rising to the challenge and made chocolate covered strawberries. They seemed to be well received and I can actually say he did them all by himself. GOOD JOB JOSH! ( I will now be expecting chocolate covered strawberries more often..... now that I know he is a master at them.)
We had a fun time with friends and it was nice to have a chance to sit and just enjoy adult conversation.
Our friends the Lee's....a great parenting duo, but more specifically Riva is a mom that I have come to truly admire and I am so thankful for her insight, wisdom and devotion when it comes to all things but especially motherhood.
This is a glimpse of adult conversation and uninterrupted meal time. Doesn't it look so pleasant?
Here is Bekah with Aunt Becky. A new phase in picture taking..... the minute I tell Rebekah to say cheese she immediately strikes this pose. I am trying not to fight it as I am clinging to the "choose your battles" concept, however my pictures are starting to have a more "silly" theme rather than the "cute, lovable and adorable" I was going for. ;)
We had a pleasant afternoon with family and especially with three moms who are dear to my heart, my mom, aunt and grandma.
Bekah and Grandpa being silly.;)
Me and Anna....
One of our family "things" is playing games....
today we brought out a new game... Blockus Trigon.
As you can tell from the picture I was quite serious about my moves....my cousin Andy..... not so much.
So happy Mother's Day! Motherhood.... one of the greatest the reasons to celebrate.
