Happy Mother's Day

Today was such a great day.  I started my day with a great run.  Drew made breakfast for me and everyone.  I was able to spend time with my Mom before she left this afternoon! 

I talked to my other Mom on the phone!  My sister Kristin is laboring to be a first time mom!  I spent time with each of my kiddos individually and together.  They gave me sweet little presents which I totally forgot to photograph...a lovely bracelet and necklace, a notebook, a homemade picture frame, a homemade painted flower arrangement, and cards.  Our day ended with an awesome meal that Mom made for us before she left!  Despite all that wonderfulness, the best part of today was just being home!  I missed Emma, Jonah, Samuel, and Elena's smiling faces all last week.  I was so happy to be with them today!

Last week on our trip moms are Mums so my kiddos took great pleasure in calling me "mum" today!

Love these sweet faces so much!!  My favorite thing is being their mom/mum!


  1. Love the pictures! Glad you were able to spend some time with your mom before she left. I bet the kids enjoyed calling you mum!

  2. Sounds like a great Mother's Day! I agree, there's something special about just being home!
