Mother's Day

So this year was kind of a cool Mother's Day because it was my first year with my complete set of sons. Nobody was missing and it felt good. 

I opened my eyes to Paxton standing next to me, kissing my arm and asking if I could open my presents and telling me happy Mother's Day. A few seconds later I heard him run into Porter's room and tell him to go tell me happy Mother's Day. They couldn't wait for me to get dressed before opening. 

They got me 3 pots of flowers for the front porch and a stacking ring with Lincoln's name. 

We were planning on going to brunch at Mimi's, so we all got ready. Unfortunately, when we got there the wait was an hour...we drove to Jimmy's Egg, IHOP, and Allisha's...they all had huge waits. By then, the boys and I were all starving and it was almost time to go to Josh and Candy's house for lunch. We decided to try one last place before giving up. We tried Corner Bakery and it was perfect. Paxton and Porter got pancakes which is what's important to them and it wasn't busy at all. 

We went to Josh and Candy's for a cookout for lunch and then to McAlister's with my family for dinner. 

I'm always so thankful for Jared on Mother's Day because he makes a huge effort to make me feel special and help the boys pick things out that they want to give me but that I'll also love. And for the first time, I had some surprises that Paxton made me at school that were really sweet. 

I love being a mom to these three precious boys. Paxton and Porter are so good about telling me multiple times a day that they love me and just coming up for snuggles. And Lincoln would be totally fine if I just held him all day every day. I feel pretty lucky that they're mine!
