Mother's Day Lovin'

May 12, 2014

 Everything I learned about being a mother, I learned from my mom. I am so thankful that she moved to Michigan to be closer to me....I don't know what I'd do without her!

I hope you all had a fantastic Mother's Day. I got to sleep in, got some beautiful flowers for the porch and some just for me, went out for a yummy breakfast with my boys and my mom, did a little antiquing, got a 3 hour nap out of Hudson, spent some time at the park with my boy, and had a great night playing outside. What more could a mama want?

 I'll tell you what a mama wants....a sweet picture with her boy. I didn't think it was too much to ask....but Hudson WASN'T having it!

See what I mean? Little stinker. 

 This was as good as I got. Picture perfect right here....Hudson grabbing my boob and looking dazed. Oh well...there's always next year, right?

My husband had Hudson color in a page in a journal instead of a card for Mother's Day. That way, Hudson can draw me a picture or write me a letter in it each year. LOVE it so much!

I'm so grateful for this busy little guy. Being his mama is my greatest joy.

Happy Mother's Day!
