This weekend I felt like the most important woman in the whole world. Not that I had breakfast in bed...or Rocky didn't buy me jewelry for my birthday...and I didn't go to the spa and relax. The boys just loved on me all weekend and showed me how much they really appreciate their mommy/wife.
Friday night started the circus with dinner with my dad, step mom and step sister. We headed to one of my favorite places Leroy's for ribs. OMG I love their ribs and I new everyone else would too. We had a great night just eating...relaxing and chatting for a few hours. It was a good night we don't get to see them that often and when we do its mass chaos so just getting to hang out was just what we needed.
Saturday of course was my birthday and I had to work from about 4:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. When I walked in the door after work all the lights were off in the house and standing in the kitchen were Dalton and Rocky standing with a cake and 27 candles and singing happy birthday to mommy. How priceless is that. After that Rocky cleaned up our '75 Road Runner and lil man and I took a nap. The we headed to Topeka for a car show. It was so much fun. Dalton likes to look at the engines inside of cars now. He's going to be a gear head just like his daddy and I wouldn't want him any other way. We walked around downtown for a few hours with my sister in law (Rocky's sister) and just enjoyed the beautiful evening.
Yesterday morning we got up Dalton gave me my mothers day card and then we headed for my mom and step dad's house where my sister brother and I made everyone breakfast. Plus I got to spoil my lil niece for awhile too. Then we spend the afternoon with Rocky's mom and dad and sister. It was crazy busy but most enjoyable.
Now before I close this post I must share with you the Mother's Day card that Dalton picked out all by himself and insisted on getting me.
Must give credit to Hallmark...
Mother, the older I get, the more I realize how much you've done for me all my life. I thought all Mother's loved and cared for their sons the way you always did for me, but the more I see of this word, the more I know that our relationship is exceptional. I'm so lucky to have a Mother who taught me how to Love myself, as well as others, to trust my own instincts, and to be true to myself. You've always been a special person, Mother, always caring for the people and the world around you. Thank you for raising me the way to did... I really love you.
LOL is that not too funny coming from a 3 year old :)
Hope you all had a great Mother's Day!!!!
