Happy Mother’s Day & The World’s Largest Card!!

This has been an incredible weekend!  Hubby’s grandmother spent the weekend at my parents’ house and they all took care of our kids (Bug, and our 2.5 month old foster son)  for the weekend!   Hubby and I got some precious time alone, and caught up on some much, much needed rest! Glorious!

Today, my mom and Granny brought the kids back and then spent time having lunch and playing here for Mother’s Day.  I am so blessed to have such a wonderful mom, and also to be so close to my mother-in-law, and my grandmother-in-law.

My daughter made cards for my mom and Granny (and Grandma too, but we have to mail hers).  I bought them some flowers and printed a collage of pictures for them.

Then, my daughter presented me with a surprise she made me while she was at my parents’ house. 


The world’s LARGEST and BEST Mother’s Day card in the whole world!! 

Isn’t it AWESOME?? I’m so proud of it! Now, where to hang it?

I am blessed that the Lord called me to be a mom, not only by birth, but by fostering, and hopefully one day adoption.  Of course, I could not do it without my devoted husband and partner by my side!

I am also blessed to have such a wonderful mom of my own!  No, we didn’t coordinate our colors on purpose! Scary, huh?

What a great picture of you and your mom! And I love the expression on her face when she's reading the card Emily made.
Great job on the giant card, Emily!
