I'm one lucky lady!!!

I hope all you moms out there had a wonderful Mothers Day. I've been hooked to a blog lately called The Simmons Family. Every time I read it I want to go and snuggle up to my kids and never let them go. The Simmons have a son born with a major heart defect. I think this particular blog touches my heart so much because their little boy to me looks a lot like my little two year old. Anyways, every time I read it and particularly on Mothers Day it makes me realize how blessed I am. I have three wonderful healthy children, a baby on the way and one incredible husband. I am truly blessed.
My little five year old made this for me in preschool. He was so excited to give it to me. He is just like his mother and can't keep a secret, I think he told me about it the day he started making it.

My husband bought me these super yummy chocolates from a new candy store near where we live. They were soooooooo good, he got my favorites, pinoche and Carmel's. What a smart man!

This little guy was a sweetheart and feel asleep during Church, what better mothers day gift could I have asked for. He even stayed asleep until we got him home to take a real nap!

Saturday I finally caved in and did some yard work. I wish I could say I enjoyed yard work, but I really don't. I do enjoy the end results and the feeling of accomplishment you get looking at a nice yard. Here are the kids and my niece and nephew enjoying their lunch. Root beer, hot dogs and Cheetos, yes we are soooooo healthy!

Well here is the yard after a long day of work. The kids got way dirty and me and the husband got a lot accomplished. The deck and fence desperately needs to be painted.

Here are some of my favorite things in my yard. I love these tulips with the pointed petals.

My all time favorite, yellow tulips.

Not a great picture, but I love how the bottom of this tulip is white.

Bleeding hearts, they are so cool!

Hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day!
