Mom's Day 2011

Mother's Day began with an alarm clock blaring at 4;30am... another drive north for a soccer game with my boy!

After 2 days of driving up and down the free at ungodly hours of the morning I was sick by the time I got home Sunday afternoon.

That didn't stop baby girl from celebrating! She create posters, place cards (for dinner), letters (5 of them), confetti and she gave me a mini pedi (hee, hee... it was actually a manicure, but I love her words for a mani/pedi). Phinneous picked out white roses and asked that I catch for him outside... unfortunately my body wouldn't cooperate, so we took a rain check on that. Daddy also picked out cards... his gift was... 2 bathroom remodels... yay me!

Today I'm Loving...

1. The sun streaming in on my face

2. The quiet of the morning (although the fish tank is really loud... must add water)

3. Watching Jeep explore the backyard in the morning sun

4. The anticipation of the bathroom remodel(s) beginning

5. My neighbors... whom always smile, go the extra mile (cleaning off the bottom of my driveway)... they are great.

6. My book

7. My sore legs... (mental note... avoid stairs today)

8. Watching my children grow through tough experiences (although this can be very painful)

9. My husband

10. My camera... and the need to capture more of our daily memories.

Sometimes growing up is just hard....

We headed up to the state cup for soccer this past weekend... the games did not go well... the kids did not play up to their potential... it was just sad. (They did, however, have a great time together in the hotel... so much fun watching them hangout and do the pre-teen thing... a little scary too for mom!)
