My Mother's Day

My wonderful husband and sweet girls made me breakfast in bed. The heart pancake was Eden's idea..

I was showered with fabulous gifts...

Maya made me this bag. On one side it says "My Mom Rocks" and the other side said "My Mom is a Star" so now I have the best church bag ever!


Eden made me a butterfly puppet and a caterpillar made with her hands that said "This is the hand you used to hold when I was only four years old."


Aric got me some much needed casual, slip on sneakers. They are so comfy and I love them.


For dinner we went to the Sampson's where Aric and Mike grilled Amy and I some very tasty ribs. Along with the ribs we had fruit salad, garlic parm asparagus (my fave), corn bread and baked beans with brownies for dessert. I am still recovering from that feast.
We had some wonderful talks at church and I got to substitute Maya's Sunday School class. I had a great day. I am so grateful for Aric who really makes an effort to make me feel loved not just on Mother's Day but everyday. I appreciate that he shows our girls how a woman should be treated and that it is important to honor their mother. I am blessed.

I noticed your cute sneakers yesterday when I picked up the carpet squares.

I also noticed your van partying over at the Sampsons while we walked by ALL ALONE on Sunday night.

How fun! And I too love your shoes. I noticed them the other night and have been coveting them ever since. I guess I will have to repent about that later.

Your hubby knows your shoes size, let alone what shoes you like? Never heard of such a thing!

Very nice! Love your outfit and your shoes! Those look like some yummy pancakes. We do have similar tunes...I like you!

I have those SAME shoes and LOVE them. Of course mine are much dirtier because I wear them everywhere.

Now I feel so cool. I will start referring to them as my Jessica shoes.

That little thing about Eden's hands is too cute.
