Happy Mother's Day!

Hope all you moms out there had an awesome day today.....I know I did! I feel so blessed!! I started the morning off with breakfast made by Ashley & Jon.

Jon made the scrambled eggs & coffee
And Ashley made home-made cinnamon buns. YUM!
After that, I got to open presents. Ashley made this cool piece of art to go on the wall here in my craft room.
This awesome painted canvas was done by Miss Alli. It's the words to Lauren Alaina's song 'Like My Mother Does'........."When I love I give it all I've got
Like my mother does
When I'm scared, I bow my head and pray
Like my mother does

When I feel weak and unpretty
I know I'm beautiful and strong
Because I see myself like my mother does
Chris gave me this whole set of all 4 Karate Kid movies. I sense a movie marathon in the near future!
And last, but not least......Jon MADE me this amazing crochet hook!! He whittled it out of a limb from the 'Bug Tree' out front. How cool, is that?! My bestest one-of-a-kind crochet hook. 
 At church today, they had all the children (5-10 years old) sing in the main service for all the moms. It was so cool! We got to hear Anna, Daniel, Jesse & Taylor this morning. They did such an awesome job & we are so proud of all of them! After church, we headed over to Maw's & had lunch with her & visited for a while.
Then on to Starbucks this afternoon about 3:30.....for one last 'Happy Hour' honor of Mother's Day, ya know. ;-)
And to finish off this awesome Mother's Day, Clay took me out to eat tonight at Texas Roadhouse. He said he figured I'd appreciate a 'Date Night' with just some 'me & him' time more than flowers or a gift. And he's so right. Does he know me well, or what?! 

I think I am going to tuck myself into bed & read for awhile now. I really have had a BLESSED day today!!
