Mother's Day Weekend

>> Monday, May 10, 2010

I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend and an even better Mother's Day. I waited my whole life to hold my baby in my arms and celebrate Mother's Day, as a Momma. My thoughts and prayers are with those of you that are still waiting for this day. When the time comes, it will mean more then you ever imagined! Mr. got lots of points for making my first day weekend very special.

My Mother's Day weekend started with a surprise from my boys Friday. While we were getting ready to go to Downtown Alive, Jackson brought me a little box from my favorite jewelry store! Mr. had no business buying me anything with the job situation, but he did it anyway. I got a beautiful pair of earrings and two of the sweetest cards I have ever received!

The rest of the weekend was pretty much spent in our backyard. All four sets of Jackson's grandparents went in together and bought a swingset for his first birthday. Saturday morning Mr. and my step-dad and step-brother began the assembly... which took all of 20-hours to complete!

Saturday was also Prom for my oldest step-brother, so we got a few cute pictures of Jackson with his Uncle. The guys were a little slow moving on Sunday morning, so Mr. made us pancakes for breakfast! When the swingset was finally done, all of the kids in our neighborhood came to test it out. Jackson was belly laughing in his swing, so sweet. Not a bad way to spend his 11 month birthday:) He was terrified of the slide the first time down, but I'm sure he'll be climbing up it before the weeks over!

Kristen, I'm glad you had such an amazing Mother's Day weekend- you deserved it! I love that card, I got the same one from the twins :) Isn't Mother's Day so much sweeter when you go through so much to be a mommy? Last year Mom's day was hard on us, but this year was the best! I was thinking of you, that's for sure :)
