Mother’s Day 2013

Wow! It has been a long time since I have updated and  A LOT of things have happened in the past month (Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Libby turning 10 months old!) So we will start with the first one..Mother’s Day!

The entire week before Mother’s Day Libby was sick was nasty Hand, Foot, Mouth…it was awful…if you have kids, pray they never get it! Poor thing…anyways…we weren’t sure if we would even get to do anything that weekend but thankfully things began healing up on Friday and by Saturday she was good to go!

This same weekend my brother graduated with his Masters of Divinity from seminary on that Saturday morning, so the whole family was in town to celebrate him. We were so proud of him-he worked so hard!

We celebrated him during the day (some how don’t have pics on my camera or phone that aren’t blurry) and celebrated my mom for Mother’s Day on Saturday night (again…no pics! boo!).

Sunday morning rolled around and y’all…my husband spoils me so much and is so thoughtful about gifts he gives and things does. He wanted me to have special first Mother’s Day. We woke up and took a trip to Shipley Donuts AFTER opening my WRAPPED (big deal) presents.

Libby got me a HUGE coffee mug and a Keurig! yahoo! We set that up ASAP, got donuts and came home for breakfast. After we were finished we went to church. Justin said I could pick anywhere to eat for lunch but all I really wanted to go was go to this place called Newks that has awesome sandwiches and have a picnic in the front yard. So that’s what we did-so fun and relaxing!

That evening we met up with Mama and Papa Kates for some delish italian food to celebrate her for Mother’s Day!

Whew! I don’t normally describe in full detail..if you are still reading this…enjoy the pics from the weekend!
