Mother's Day Goodness

I was spoiled rotten on Mother's Day... starting with a made-by-Ryan breakfast of french toast and bacon served on a super cute plate made by Coleman with fruit smoothies... we had chocolate covered strawberries for dessert (I love having dessert for breakfast!).

Olivia made an awesome book all about me, including this fabulous portrait...
...information about me (I love her assessment of my weight--Ryan said she was bound and determined to get me on the scale, but he recommended writing what she did--"less than my dad"--I got taller too!)...

...and her depiction of our kitchen counter below is scarily accurate. Someday, I will tame it. Today is not that day.

Ryan's gift was that he is making our blog into a book! I feel more motivated to blog more often so that we can record all the happenings in our family. I also feel a weight of guilt lifted off for not scrapbooking anything in the last 7 or 8 years.

More than great gifts and yummy food I am just so grateful to have three wonderful kiddos and an incredible partner to help me raise them. They are a joy and fill my life with wonder each day.

Oh goodness. The thing that she wrote about the weight is precious and very diplomatic. (not that I am saying that you weigh more than Ryan because I haven't a clue) Very funny stuff. I also laughed out loud on your last post of your little girly playing the "pretending to be a sleep" game because that is just about right. It drove me bonkers.
