Mother's Day

Caden thought it was my birthday today so when it was time to eat the mother's day cake we had to add a candle. He was very persistent about it!



Such a sweet little boy. He kept saying "its your birFFFday"


My boys have made Mother's day so special for me. Shay has taught them well. I got woke up at 6:25 am this morning to breakfast in bed. While Orion and Titan cleaned up the kitchen Corbin gave me a foot massage. Then they took me down stairs and showered me with gifts. They even spent their own money on me! I was surprised at how good they did. I love everything they gave me!

Titan made this at school. I love homemade gifts. It was very sweet!



Orion made this card for me and brought it home for all his brothers to sign.




Corbin made this little book for me. Reason # 8 is because I give him ice cream.




Each of the boys wrote something special to me. I really loved this card. Corbin wrote " Your the best mom I ever had" lol and Titan wrote "If I had a flower for every time I think of you I would be walking in my garden forever." So Sweet!! Orion wrote " You are a rose in a field of weeds." My boys are so good to me!


My new purse! Super cute!



Titan with the gifts he gave me. He gave me a pretty bracelet, a flower, and a #1 mom necklace. I love them all!





Orion gave me roses, a turquoise necklace and earring set, and a card. He did a great job picking these things out! So cute!


Corbin gave me some silver hoop earrings, the book, and some black cute earrings. He enjoyed giving them to me and I love them!




Me and my Jana Rose.




I love being a mom to this little hulk! He is so funny! He keeps singing happy birthday to me today...lol




My Corbin and I are best buds!



I really don't know what I would do without my two older boys. They are so good to me and they always help me out. I am so pleased with the way they are turning out. They are really good boys and respectful to their mother.





I got to church today and one of Shay's friends came up to me and pinned this on me. He said Shay had called him and asked him to pick it up for him. So sweet. What a nice surprise! I miss my hubby! He made my day. THANK YOU MY LOVE!! And then Orion gave a talk in sacrament meeting about what his mom means to him so I was bawling most of the meeting. The gifts meant a lot but what mattered most to me was the thought and time that each one of them spent to think of me and to make this day good for me. I am so blessed. I could not imagine my life any other way. I LOVE being a mom. It is the most rewarding job in the world!






Happy Mother's day to all the mothers in my life. So many women have been an influence for good in my life. I am truly grateful for good examples of patience and love. I am so grateful for amazing friends and family members. There are so many amazing women in my life and I hope their day was as good as mine. Happy Mother's Day!

Random spot to post this...but I don't know how else to get ahold of you...I just saw the news clip of Kaden. I am SO grateful that he is ok. Lots of tears have been shed this morning and I'm so grateful that someone was there to help him. Hope that you are ok as well. I'll be hugging my kids a little tighter this morning.
