Mother's Day 2015

Mother's Day this year was overall good! It was certainly different from last year. Not that last year was bad, but I am in a completely different place mentally and emotionally.

We had some rough storms during the week, including the day before Mother's Day. I told Phil I just wanted hot dogs for dinner, and to still have a house to live in. Luckily for me, I got both of my wishes :) {When your expectations are low, you are usually pretty happy with the outcome! HAHAHA}

Phil offered to watch both kiddos while I showered and got gussied up for church. I was playing in a handbell trio for both worship services, so I still had to wake up early. Phil was sweet enough to bring me some coffee while I did my hair! Then, Jillian came in and said, "Mama! I have a surprise flower for you!" Hahaha We'll have to work on her surprises later ;) I got a beautiful corsage to wear to church. {This use to be a tradition in my family for Mother's Day as well as if you had a birthday on Sunday morning. It fell by the wayside once I got older, but I mentioned to Phil that I wanted to start it back up again!}

The one downside to Mother's Day was that Phil ended up having to be at work for a good portion of the day. I understood why, and I wasn't upset at all. Besides, him having a job is way more important to me than getting a nap! We did get to eat dinner together and put the kids to bed before he had to go back to work. I also tried making my first strawberry rhubarb pie. It tasted ok, but it was too liquid-y. I was a little disappointed, but I'll just make a few changes for next time. Overall, I had a great day! I hope all you moms got to feel special too!

Here are a few pictures from the day:
{My beautiful corsage! They did a great job picking it out :)}

{Of course I wouldn't be a mom without this great guy! I'm glad I don't have to try being a single parent. It is an honor to parent alongside Phil!} 

{Honestly, this was the best shot I got of me with my babies at church. Hey, when you have a 3-1/2 and 1-1/2 year old, this is as good as it gets! I would have loved a picture with all of us smiling and looking at the camera, but this is so representative of where our family is right now. Some day I'll truly treasure pictures like these.}

{Hot dogs and sweet potato fries! Just the dinner I asked for :)} 

 {My liquid pie}

{Amen!}
