Here I am again, cramming all kinds of things into one post. I'm still waiting for more hours to be added to my days, then I'll be a better blogger. Promise.
Mother's Day weekend this year was full of activities and little relaxation. To kick things off, Hadley had her very first dance recital. Sadly, because of our other more important commitments, she could only do the rehearsal. In all honesty, we really didn't have time for that, but how could I resist this costume?
One of Hadley's dancing buddies is also our neighbor, so we picked her up on our way to rehearsal. These 2 were just too much to handle on our short drive there. They were chatting and giggling the whole way!
"You so silly!"
"No, you so silly!"
Tee hee hee...tee hee hee!
The lighting wasn't great for pictures, so they are limited.
It really couldn't have been any cuter! These 3 are months apart in age and will most likely be together from preschool-high school.
Our much more important commitment for the weekend, was my cousin's wedding. Mal and I grew up together. She is the closest thing to a real sister I will ever have and was my very first best friend. She asked me and kids to be a part of her day, and we were so honored.
Despite the weather on that particular day, every other detail was just perfect!
...and what a gorgeous bride she was!
These 2 were pretty amazing as well. Meyer had a bit of a rough time at the rehearsal the night before, which had me in a panic for the real deal. I'm happy to say, he made his momma proud that night!
We are so happy for this beautiful new couple, and can't wait for them to move in...RIGHT NEXT DOOR! The icing on the cake my friends. Never in our wildest childhood dreams would we have guessed we would live right next door to one another, and I can't wait!
Last but not least, we celebrated Mother's Day on Sunday. I woke up to these sweet faces excitedly wishing me a happy Mother's Day. Then there was the presentation of the gifts. Meyer has been working so hard up in his playroom on my gift. He made it all himself, wrapped it and decorated this box.
Inside that huge box was a pencil box he used for the gift box. He had it stuffed full of sheer ribbon that he used for the tissue paper, and this handmade beauty was carefully wrapped in the center. He was SO proud...and I was SO happy! He proclaimed, "It's one a kind!" It sure is buddy, and so are YOU!
We visited with my mom that morning and had brunch with Andy's mom and grandma.
It was a wonderful day celebrating all of the special moms in our life.
...and I even got a nap!
