One Great Mother's Day

I'm so grateful for my two little darlings and the tiny darling wiggling around in my tummy.
And grateful for my sweet husband who makes sure they give me appropriate props.

Nothing like a yummy breakfast in bed.... ("hey mom, that looks better than what dad made us. Can we sit on the bed and beg for your peaches and cream?)

Collin colored the oven mitt for me at preschool.

I got to watch the kids sing in church today. Well, Lydia sang. And Collin clung to her.
(thanks Robyn for snapping the pic)

Earlier this week I taught some young women at church some simple floral arranging techniques to make Mother's day gifts. They did such a good job! 

Taught them to make corsages too. 
I couldn't let the sample one go to waste! so I wore it to church. 

Lydia sock bun got some flowers too.

After the incredible gift of my Farmhouse table, a little bouquet of flowers from Shane would have been plenty. He went a little above and beyond and not only bought four beautiful hanging baskets for the pergola, but he installed drip-lines so I wouldn't have to bother watering them. 
Smart man. I tend to kill all green things.
The kids and he also planted my herb garden yesterday. 

What do I do with lavender? It sounded all romantic when I requested it. But now I'm at a loss.

Lydia's gift to me was a foot massage on the patio. She's actually quite good.

For dinner, Shane made me what I've been craving almost everyday of my second trimester. 
Burgers and chocolate malts. I'm heading into a food comma right now.

He also took care of the kids for almost the entire day, which is how I'm actually able to blog while the kids are still awake. Amazing! 

Being a mom is pretty rad. Especially today! 

Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies out there!

What a wonderful, blessed day!!! Love your little man clinging to his big sister during the church song; so sweet!

Lavender can be put into the bath, into lotions, etc. I bet you could find a ton of recipes online and use them to make your own spritzes (lavender is calming) and your own balms (lavender is also healing!).
