Although we don't own a dog who is producing dog crap in the front or back yard, my day yesterday was just as grand as hers. (above) Mother's Day this year is extra special for me and my awesome family treated it like so. I woke up to my husband clearing the dishwashers, folding towels from the clean laundry and putting them away as well as being serenaded by 2 beautiful children who walked in my bedroom hand in hand with a gift bag and a card for me from their dad and them. They handed it to me at my bedside with smiles. Kenidi especially. She grins from ear to ear anytime there are presents near by. I opened an incredibly wonderful card signed by four as well as a beautiful Mother's Day gift that will replace the watch Kenidi lost of mine last year around this time. I've been without a watch for almost a year now and had finally just begun to get used to it. Now though...I have a beautiful sentiment to wrap around my wrist again which will be a reminder of just how precious time really is. That didn't stop Kenidi Grace from attempting to run off with it yet again though. I practically had to pry the new watch out of her grubby little theif-a-licious fingers in order to get it back. She is a hoot! Like I told Brennen yesterday...I am so proud of the two of them and am so very blessed to be their Mother.

After all of the excitement, we ran to have a late Mother's Day brunch down the street. I stuffed my belly with a custom ordered omelet and a slice of french toast. Yes, I basically had to be rolled out of the restaurant when it came time to leave but I enjoyed every minute of it. It was Mother's Day so I splurged in the food category as so. We came home and vegged out for a bit after that. Brent and Brennen went and washed my car then they came back and we went and picked up my own Mom for some visiting time with her. She stayed over at the house most of the day with us. We ordered in and watched a marathon run of "The Duggars - 19 kids and counting" on TV. We both laughed while watching it all day and were in awe at how one woman can birth 19 kids and still be as sane, calm, soft spoken and passive as their Mother is. I would have done been loooonnnnng gone by #3. LOL! I kept thinking that surely the cameras would pick up a moment where she looses it or even raises her voice just a tad bit to discipline them - but NO! Never! She was as lucid as lucid gets. I admire that woman and feel as though she should be made into a saint. :) Not only does she have 19 kids but they are all home schooled as well. I looked at my Mom and said "she never gets a break." They are with her 24/7. At least some of us get a bit of "me" time when our kids are in school each day. Again...sainthood is calling for her.

All in all...I had a fabulous day with my family and with my own Mom as well. I was missing my Step-Mom and my Mother in law yesterday though. It just felt odd not making the rounds to spend the day with them on Mother's day too as we've always done in the past. My day was almost too "free." I found myself missing the hustle and bustle of traveling around to my 3 moms houses and visiting with them on our most important day of the year. :( Also...just a huge shout out and a thanks to all of my girlfriends who texted me yesterday wishing me a Happy Mother's Day. I have the best friends in the world.

I hope all of you were able to enjoy your Mother's Day festivities to the fullest extent yesterday and that your Monday was a beautiful one today. I'm hunkered down with the kids now trying to determine what we are going to do for dinner. Back to reality today although I could easily go for another omelet with a side of french toast right about now. HA!

Hugs, Angie

Glad you had a great Mothers Day. I live in the same area as the Duggars and I got a recorded call from Michelle today. She was campaigning for a local guy running for senate. Your post reminded me of that today.
