Happy Mothers Day!

So I didn't really take any pictures on mothers day because I was too busy RELAXING! I had a wonderful mothers day! Cody got up early with the kids so I could sleep in. We don't have church until 11am so that is nice. I got up and jumped in the shower and when I got out I heard the most beautiful, sweetest sound. All my kids were in my room singing mothers day songs they learned in primary. I was in tears! They sang "mother I love you, mother I need you" and "I often go walking", that is one of my favorites. Cody was also with them holding a tray with my favorite breakfast on it, an omelet made with egg whites(I am on a health kick) and a bagel with orange juice. After breakfast Cody got all the kids ready for church, aside from doing the girls hair, so I could relax some more. He didn't have early meetings like he usually does. We had wonderful church meetings. All the mothers received beautiful leis to wear all day. We didn't go visit my mom because she is still back east and my in-laws are busy cruising in the Caribbean. How would that be? Nice!! When I got home Cody gave me a beautiful card and some yummy body lotion that is to die for. He also gave me a pass to go tanning. Love it! The kids gave me all sorts of cute homemade gifts, from flowers made out of cookies to cards and necklaces. I wish I took pictures. Oh well. Anyways, I was able to relax all day and Cody took care of meals and the kids. I wish every day was mothers day!!

Shout Out to My Wonderful Mother

This is one of my most favorite pictures of my mom. She is holding my last baby Cameron right after he was born. I think it is soo sweet and shows how loving and caring my mom is. I want my mom to know how much I love and appreciate her. She has always been there for me whenever I need her even if she lived 2500 miles away. She would do anything for her kids or grand kids if it meant that they were happy. My mom has been there for me through the thick and thin. Thanks mom for being my rock! I love you!
