Happy belated Mother’s Day to all my mommy readers! I hope you had a great and blessed day with your children, grandchildren and families. Our weekend was nice, but busy!
Saturday afternoon we went to my friend Connie’s wedding. It was a lovely wedding and I am so honored that we got to be a witness of her union with Michael. They are a great couple and I can’t wait to see how they will grow together throughout the years! The reception was really fun! I got into the dancing (gee..imagine that!!) and didn’t let my 3-inch wedge heels slow me down. That is, until we were dancing to “Cotton-Eye Joe”. I did a turn and was coming around, and my foot missed the floor and I fell right on my butt, in the middle of the dance floor! It was really funny, I’m sure it was even funnier to witness. But I was quickly helped up and just kept right on dancing. (However, the shoes came off very quickly after that!) I felt fine, until I got into bed that night and I said to Steven “I think that fall hurt worse than I originally thought it did!” He said, “I bet it did, you went down hard!” But Connie looked sooo beautiful! Her dress was PERFECT for her, it was a creamy lace dress, which was perfect for her red-headed skin tone! It was a great afternoon/evening and I’m glad we could be a part of it! I’m sure they are having a great time in Hawaii right now (they are island hopping, I’m so jealous!) and I can’t wait to see her when she gets back. Here are some pics from the reception. Every picture I tried to take at the wedding were too dark!
Sunday morning I woke up a little sore, but I felt ok. Until I was changing Micah’s diaper. I was leaning over the bed and was changing him and then went to put the diaper in the pail and went back to put Micah back on our bed. And then I couldn’t stand up straight. Some of you know that I have a form of Spina Bifida in my lower back and I must have joustled something real good, because I was in real pain. Luckily my mom was home (Steven was already at church for PSR) and she came up and took over! She ran me a hot bubble bath (using the bubbles that my hubby and kids had gotten me for Mother’s Day!) and then took the kids to eat breakfast and helped me get them ready for church. I’m so lucky she could be here because I wouldn’t have made it to church if it wasn’t for her!
So I spent most of the day in pain, but it was still a good day. My kiddos got me bubble bath (milk and honey-yummy!), jewelry (a cream and shades of gray pearl necklace, bracelet and earrings) and a really cute tunic top (which I thought was a dress and I thought that my husband had gone crazy because it was SOOOOO short! LOL!) and a bag of Swedish fish (one of my favorite candies). My mom got me some Daliahs to plant in the flower bed outside and I can’t wait til it warms up so that I can get them in the ground! We spent the evening at Steven’s aunt and uncle’s house with that side of the family, while my mom enjoyed a quiet evening at home with Michael watching movies and eating pasta! (Afterall, she’s with my kids all the time! The best gift we could give her is a quiet evening to herself right?!?!?!)
All in all it was a great weekend! I am such a lucky mommy to have these three amazing and beautiful children! They make my heart happy and have shown me what it really means to love someone with all your heart and soul. (Even on their worst day!) I am so greatful that God saw fit to give them to me, even on the days when I don’t feel I am doing my best. He knows how much I needed them and I’m thankful that he chose me to be their mother! Again, happy belated Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! I hope it was great!
This past Sunday at St. Joe’s was the closing for their Sunday Bible School. Brianna started in it when she was 3 and this year she graduated from the program! Next year she will start in the Parish School of Religion (PSR) program which her daddy is in charge of. Jonah started in the program this year. The girls who run the program are awesome and they have let our children start earlier because it really helps us out since they meet at the same time that the PSR program does. So for one hour we don’t have to try to juggle them and the PSR, and they get to go learn about the Bible. So even though Jonah didn’t turn 3 until December they let him join the 3 year old program as a favor to us. He has loved it! The decision we have to make now is whether to keep him in the same class that he was in this year again next year, or go ahead and let him move up with his class. If we let him move up then we would have a one year lag between when he’ll be able to start PSR and when he’ll graduate from the Bible program. (Mainly because I don’t think he’ll be ready to start Kindergarten as early as Brianna was!) So we have a decision to make over the summer!
For the closing the children perform some songs for the parents and family members who can come. They are sooo cute! Of course I had to take some video, but blogger has lost my upload videos button (I can’t find it ANYWHERE on my toolbar!!!) so I’m just going to have to post some pics instead.
Jonah was in the front row, and Bri was in the back so I didn’t get any pics of her until it was over and she was coming down the stairs with her goodie bag but here you go!
I’m gearing up for a crazy busy weekend (shopping for wedding gift supplies and Mother’s Day gifts tonight, coming home to make wedding gift, which I’ll post pics of later! NKU graduation tomorrow and I have lots of friends graduating so I’m planning on going to that, a wedding tomorrow afternoon, Mother’s Day on Sunday) and then another crazy week (mainly consisting on making a wedding cake and 100 cupcakes!!! My first ever bytheway!), leading up to another crazy weekend (friend’s birthday party on Friday, Aunt’s wedding in Indy on Saturday, PSR closing back in KY on Sunday, followed by Bri’s dance recital pictures Sunday afternoon, whew!!!) So I may be kind of sparse for the next few weeks! But I’ll be in when I can posting pics of the gift I’m making for my frien, and pics from their wedding. Pics of my first ever wedding cake and cupcakes. And pics from their wedding. Here’s a sneak peak from my practice run with the cupcakes:
Anyways, have a great weekend! And as Brianna put so eloquently last night “Just go out and enjoy all that this day has to offer!” (Where does she come up with these things?!?!?!)
