Mother's Day 2016

Someone should have told me that Mother's Day gets better and better as your kid gets older!  Grace was so cute this year trying to keep secrets and hide her present.  When we woke up Sunday morning, she insisted I stay in bed and pretend to sleep.  She snuck out of the bedroom to search for her golden bag (school communication bag), which had her present tucked away in it. She had hidden it in her room on Friday when she came home from school ( I of course knew exactly where it was, in her laundry basket!)  So, she came back into the bedroom with a smile a mile wide!  She was so proud of herself!  She sang her Mother's Day song for me and we snuggled together while I opened my gift. 


Grace and I enjoyed making a great pancake breakfast together and just hung out, skipping church for once to enjoy each other's company.  We then headed out to my parents' for lunch.  It was a pretty cold day but we made the best of it, taking a few family pictures and of course playing soccer in heels!!!

A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!  And sometimes that means joining in on the soccer game wearing your princess high heels!

The two young ones have such a good time hanging out together at Grandma and Grandpa's.  Oh to be a kid again, completely entertained by a stick and water!

Here's Grandma's Mother's Day card, filled with quotes from Grace about Grandma.  This may be the first time Grandma has been described as a princess and having hair like cotton candy but how sweet!  I love the one about chicken noodle soup.  "Grandma makes good chicken noodle soup.  The kind with no vegetables!"

A little bit of living room gymnastics before heading home

My girl, my joy, my life.  I say it again and again..... I can no longer remember my life before her nor imagine my life without her.  We've become one.
