So, it was Mother's Day weekend....and here's what I captured!
|We started the weekend with Friday night dinner at my place for my folks. D's parents were coming, but came down with colds; they opted to rest! We had ham and the fixins, complete with gardenias, paper plates, lawn chairs, and good times!|
|One of the few pictures I took of that evening includes my mom holding a cake. Can you tell she's my mom?|
Sunday I tried to get a snapshot of my two boys, the "big brother/lil brother" shot....this is what we got!
|Nicholas looking down thinking ,"What is this I am sitting on?" Noah's thoughts are more like, "How long do I have to sit here before she gets it right?!?"|
|Lil bro checking with big bro for approval!|
|Then lil bro getting the grass and leaves in his hands and keeping big bro in laughs!!!|
So, I moved them to the front porch (we were at my in-laws house!) to see if that would help.....her front porch has a rug that was almost as interesting as the grass....
|Nicholas kept fussing because I was trying to get him to smile and look. Poor Noah smiles on!|
|Finally a little laugh from lil bro! Big bro however was saying, "Hurry up mom, the game is on!" (Basketball that is!)|
|This is my favorite....it speaks for itself!!!|
Then we finished off the weekend at my NaNa's, visiting for a couple of hours! We did our "feed the fish" routine we always do at her apartment! Good memories!
|Nana, Noah, me, and Nicky Brees!!!|
Overall, I just also want to say thank you to my mom, for always being simply the best!
Thanks to my maw-n-law for teaching my hubs to be the best!
And to God, thank you for trusting me to raise two boys for your kingdom....I sure hope I don't let you down!!!
And to any mom reading this, do not take your job and calling lightly.
Consider it the honor that it is to be a mother.
I'll leave you with this:
A good mom has sticky floors, a messy kitchen, laundry piles, a dirty oven, and happy kids!!!
