My Mother's Day

Hi there! Here is a little recap of how I spent my Mother's Day...

I woke up to a hot cup of coffee on my nightstand table, a pretty bouquet of pink roses, a huge balloon(that was more for Ava though haha), chocolates, cards from my husband and daughter, and a little note from Ava saying that daddy told her that he was taking me shopping later for a gift...

We headed to church for 9:30 service followed by brunch at my in laws house. They made crepes which were delicious! 

Ava always loves Nana's house. She gets to play with her second set of toys there.

"Mom, that's a fake smile! I can tell...."   (That is what she use to say to me when I was you younger. If my teeth weren't showing and my eyes weren't squinty, it was a "fake smile".
I said her smile was fake because her eyes weren't very squinty and I know her real smile. So I made her do it again....

Mom: "But I'm trying to keep my eyes open so we can see them!" 

Me: imitating my mom 

Mom: okay I'll take my glasses off...
Better :) haha

Ava was busy grocery shopping and stocking up in her kitchen

Kisses for nana

Kisses for daddy ...she conentrates...

Ok, 1 more...

Look who found the dog crate. The family Jack Russell Terrier wasn't crazy about his home being invaded.

Hello!  (or actually, "Heh-woah")

Happy with my little family on my 2nd Mother's Day as a Mommy.

Tongue out time! Goofy girl.

When I got home...I needed a nap!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day celebrating the women in your life that you love whether here with us or watching from above. 

It was such a special day for me. I am so grateful to be Ava's mama and even more grateful to have my amazing mother close by so that we can see each other daily.
