Mother's Day

I celebrated my last Mother's Day party at CFUMC on May 11th. The teachers always do a knock out job of spoiling the mamas and I'm sad that this is James's last year here. 
Upon arrival, James greeted me, put a corsage on my wrist, and escorted me into the classroom. 
The kids made the "tweet" trays in class and presented them to us. They traced capital Ds to make the birds and selected their paint and designed paper. I will always treasure this!
These aways crack me up! It takes me 5 seconds to get ready, yet I have 1,000 shoes!
Mrs. Rachael had tables for 2 set up for each mother/child plus a delicious brunch. 

James made some super friends this school year. 

We kicked off Mother's Day weekend grilling out at our house Saturday night. We have never had matching patio furniture, and after years of looking (and begging- haha!), we finally got some. I am LOVING spending time on our deck even more now! It arrived Friday so we spent the evening relaxing on it! :) 

I woke up Sunday morning and relaxed outside drinking my coffee. Seth and the kids made yogurt parfaits. 
Banana phones!
On Sunday, we went to church. I had to get a picture with my favorite kiddos
They have to do a silly shot!

We left church a little early and drove to Greenville to meet my parents for a late lunch at a Japanese restaurant. They just got back from a 2 week European river cruise. They bought my kids these boxes that have a series of steps to open them in Budapest. They worked hard to get them open!
We did a combo Mothers Day/Fathers Day gift and got my parents Alexa
Green tea ice cream is their favorite!

I'm so glad my mom is back! I'm used to talking with her on the phone everyday (at least once). I missed her! Love this patient woman!
After lunch, we drove back to Cumming to meet Seth's family for dinner. After a delicious meal, the kids ran around and played in the grassy area behind the restaurant. It was much needed after all the car sitting!
They loved running off their energy (and the sugar high from MORE ice cream helped!)

I love the moms in my life!
