Happy Mother's Day to all those out there! I had an absolutely wonderful day with my family.
I started off by ruining breakfast, making us late to church and having dinner with our whole family.
The kids behaved themselves all day and I received some wonderful gifts:
Evan even gave me a paper ruler.
Because he could, that's why...
Now if it would just warm up, I could actually plant these flowers outside.
We had a bonfire on Friday night. It was the perfect evening for a toasty fire.
Here's Morgan, being adorable.
She didn't sit too long.
Declan tried to sit down.
He also didn't sit too long...
He fell in every chair he tried to sit in.
Morgan thought that falling out of a chair looked like fun, so she gave it a shot.
Then Declan fell through the stairs and ended up getting stuck.
I didn't leave him like this for long.
I'm a good Mom, I promise.
But I had to take a picture first.
I didn't give them S'mores because it was almost their bedtime.
That much sugar at that hour of night would equal chaos and pure stupidity on my part.
They enjoyed some plain graham crackers for a treat.
Evan: "Mommy, what's for dinner?"
Me: "Sloppy Joes."
Evan: "You need to give sloppy joes to the policemen Mommy."
Me: "What? Why?"
Evan: "Because they feed the bad guys in jail and you said that the bad guys get all the icky food."
Me: "And my sloppy joes qualify as icky food?"
Evan: "I hate sloppy food."
One day, this picture will come back to haunt him.
I can't wait to meet his future girlfriends.
I will be printing this on a very large canvas just for that moment.
This is called payback.
