Happy Mother's Day to all of the mother's out there! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend spent with your loved ones.
'Round here, we have been going to Ryan's intramural baseball games and absolutely LOVE watching him play! Everytime Ryan would come in from each inning, Ellie would yell to him, "YOU DID IT!!" haha it was so cute.
Sunday morning (Mother's Day) I awoke to sounds in the kitchen, and a tiny voice wanting to help the best husband in the world make breakfast in bed for me :)
White chocolate macadamia nut french toast with coconut syrup?!? My goodness was I spoiled!!
Cuddling in bed, eating breakfast with my two loves+Kenya was the best part of my day :)
Ry surprised me with this lovely polka dot dress for Mother's Day! Isn't he amazing??
Ellie spotted a beautiful butterfly on our way home...
Over the years, I always liked to think that whenever I saw a butterfly, it meant that my mother was sending me a smile from heaven. :)
We went to my in-laws for dinner, where the guys fixed steak, shrimp, and mashed potatoes for us!
It was scrumptious.
I love this picture of Ryan's sweet grandma, his mom, me, and Brittany. I love these ladies!! and I feel so blessed to be a part of their family.
Boy, do I love being a mother!! It is the best job. Definitely not the easiest, but the best. Ellie is my sunshine, and I feel like the luckiest girl to be her mother. I learn so much from her and she makes me laugh so much!
Here she is sitting on her doll's chair watching a movie.
I think it's a little small, don't you think?
Funny Faces! Bottom left wins.
Here she is reading her doll a book in the bumbo chair. I love her crossed toes :)
She rarely smiles for the camera, so naturally, I love this pic!
I am grateful for my own mother and for her example that she left for me. I miss her like crazy every day, but know that she is watching over us, and sending us smiles :)
Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
