Celebrate Mommyhood

Mother's day usually involves us entertaining and cooking out. This year we wanted to change it up a bit and take our Moms to the Zoo instead. However, Dominic came down with a severe case of poison oak/ivy and we had to postpone our plans.

The day started out as normal. The little ones woke up early and we all snuggled in bed and relaxed for a bit. I then stayed in bed while my husband changed their diapers and made breakfast! (Pancakes, sausage and fruit)

I got up after watching some HGTV in the quiet to my breakfast ready to go, complete with coffee! Hubs man, the guy gets it. Caffeine is vital in the am. Dominic gave me the gifts that he had made at school. Gary and the little kids had gotten me a micro-usb drive for my car. I had also picked out furniture for our front porch but realized it was not what I wanted, so they are going back.

After breakfast, I relaxed on the couch and watch the lil ones play. Before I knew it, it was lunch and nap time. My Mom stopped over to do some laundry (her washer decided to die on Mother's day, boo!) and we gave her the gifts that we had gotten for her.

Gary and I decided to organize and clean out. We did all the cabinets, hall closet, boys closet and drawers. We threw away 2 garbage bags of "junk" and had one bag for Goodwill. If you know know that I LOVE to organize. So this was pretty much an awesome.

I did not cook one meal. Gary did it all. We stayed in pajamas. I got lots of hugs and kisses. I did not get a picture of me and the kids though. Fancy going out meals are a thing of the past for Mother's Day for me! I will take the quiet and non-people clustered everything and just be with the ones I love.
