Mother's Day

I officially celebrated Mother's Day this year as a Mom. I still can't believe that I am a Mom sometimes. I look at Truman and just think, "You are going to be around for the rest of my life...that's crazy!" But I really like being a Mom, my little boy is so cute and I love everything about him (even the screaming at times because he mixes it up and comes up with some rather entertaining cries). I am so thankful to have a healthy baby and for the blessing he is in my life, his little smile and coos make every minute of lost sleep worth it.

We were in Utah for the weekend for Rick's Grandma's funeral, and stayed with Alicia's family and she had a card on my bed that said to open on Mother's Day. When I opened it there was a cute pair of earrings with strawberries on them along with the card and a thoughtful note. I love the earrings and the message that came with them! Thanks Alicia, that was really thoughtful.

We went to church with Dave and Patrice and Rick took care of Truman for most of church which was great. Then, they gave us cinnamon rolls in Relief Society! Best Relief Society ever! Rick gave me a massage that night, which is one of my favorite things. I have a great husband. I also, got to talk with my Mom and wish her a happy Mother's Day. All in all, a great 1st Mother's Day.

When we got home, my parents gave me this card that sums up the last few months and a charm that I have been wearing on a necklace. I love them both!
My Mom is awesome! I am so grateful for her example and all that she does for our family. She is one strong lady and I look up to her in so many ways.

I'm glad we celebrate Mother's Day, and I can't wait until my kids are old enough to make me funny things like macaroni necklaces and letters telling me their favorite things about know, the kind that their primary teachers have to write because they are too little to write it themselves, and then you wish that maybe they wouldn't have told their primary teachers some of their
"favorite things" about you! Those are going to be fantastic!


  1. Cute cute. I'm glad you had a wonderful first Mother's Day with many more to come. :)

  2. Oh man, I totally spaced on wishing you a happy mother's day! Because you're a mom! It still blows my mind a little -- but I know you are seriously the best mother. I'm glad you had such a nice day.

    And I'm really hoping the test roadtrip with T-man went well. :)

  3. How fun! I am glad you had a good Mother's Day you deserve it!
