Mothers Day 2016 was unlike any Mothers Day before.
For starters it began in the middle of a 3 hour car ride home. I was dozing in and out of sleep when I looked at the clock and noticed it was 12:11. I told my friend Anna Happy Mothers Day and dozed back off. We arrived home an hour or so later and I stumbled to bed with the kids fast asleep at my parents.
About 5 hours later I woke up. I was still so tired and didn’t sleep nearly enough but it was Mothers Day and a nap could totally happen. Besides when I saw a note laying on my night stand, I had to read it.
And then I cried.
I have no words to say how blessed I feel to wake up to a note like this.
After I composed myself I took a quick shower and got around in peace (such a treat) then snuck out to go get our girls. But first I made a stop by ‘The Bucks’ first to grab my mama a Mothers Day pick me up. I really appreciate her keeping the girls so we could take off for the day on Saturday.
We headed to church in the 37, my favorite Sunday car. Every time we drive it I wonder about the family who may have driven it to church 79 years ago. Is that weird?
Then it was time for some obligatory Mothers Day photos, which just turned into me tickling the girls to get them to smile.
Mothers day is the one day a year I won’t cook. So we headed to McAllisters for lunch.
Next we went back home where I took a pretty epic nap and awoke to this.
Those silly girls set up a Mothers Day party while I was sleeping, complete with a “magic” show too.
It was the perfect place to sit and sip on my post nap coffee.
After the party I did some blogging while they worked on laundry. Mothers Day for the win!
We had a pizza party.
And I tucked my sweet girls in bed.
This was my 8th Mothers Day. I would have been about 36 weeks pregnant on my very first one. I can’t believe I’ve been a mom for this long. It’s still hard and messy sometimes, but it is a beautiful mess and one that I thank God for every day.
I hope you had a wonderful Mothers Day too.
