Mother's Day 2010!

Happy, Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies out there, and the ones who are watching over us.

I had a lovely day. Lilly woke me up with a smile this morning (ok, letting me sleep in past 5:30 would have been a bonus, but we can't have it all, right?), and we got to have some "girl time" before the boys woke up.

Then, we got ready for our Mother's Day brunch!

I love having the family over. My grandparents made it today, which was so special. Aren't they the absolute best couple ever? 60 years of marriage people. 60. Years. Wow!

Us ladies basking in the sun! My sis and I are sitting, next to grandma (seats of honor, of course). The top row, from left to right is my mom, cousin Kay, Pat (Kendra's mother-in-law) and aunt Nanette.

Same group of ladies, but inside and with babies.

And, my beautiful, wonderful, amazing mommy with two of her grandkids.

Thanks mom, for being a constant example of what motherhood is!

Sidenote - this was my sister's first official Mother's Day (Shyla was mere weeks from being born last year, so she was already a mom in my opinion, but still... first official). Kendra, I just have to say that you are rockin' motherhood!
It was also a HUGE bonus that Jeremy had the whole day off today, so he was able to spend it with me! In the afternoon, after brunch, we had some good family fun BBQing and taking a walk and just playing! All in all, a great day!

So, happy happy Mother's Day to all of the mommies out there - friends who are embracing motherhood (we're struggling through together, at least), friends' moms, mommies to be (there seem to be many of you these days), and mommies who are looking down on us (probably laughing at our silly mistakes)... you all know who you are and you all mean the world to me.

Ahh, so sweet. I love having big family get togethers on Mother's Day. I also love having just my little 3 people family on Mother's Day, which is what we did this year.

I like the top you were wearing today.
