A weekend to remember…

Coleman wanted a special birthday and he got it. We pretty much spent the whole weekend celebrating. From seeing a movie and picking out a toy at the store to a dinner of his choice, to an amazing race, to more presents and lots of sugar. He is now seven years old. Hard to believe. He is just as funny, unpredictable, artistic and strong-willed as ever, which makes him an unbelievably enjoyable and fun person. Here are some pics of everyone…

Some creativity by you-know-who.

Coleman has really grown his hair out. Or wait, is this me when I was in 3rd grade?

Pure sweetness
Josie had just a little frosting

A Day at the Park
We have had a few sunny days in between rainy ones. We went to the park and Andy wrestled with the kite while the boys tried to help. I was amazed at his patience and determination…all of them. I hung out with Josie and we had our own photo shoot. She was more than happy to pose for the camera. This was a great day. We had so much fun on this day before mother’s day. It made me so thankful for the gift of being a mother. It is the hardest job I have ever taken on, however, there is nothing I would rather do. My kids have brought so much joy to me and I am blessed to be chosen to be their mom.
My mother’s day was great. Some highlights were getting woken up at 7:30 with breakfast in bed, all fixed by the boys, on their own since Daddy was at work. They gave me wonderful gifts that they had made. I got a beatiful card from Andy saying I can pick out something new for running (my latest hobbie, if you can call it that). Lunch with Andy’s family, with a nap included. Cards from my sisters. It ended with an amazing dinner that my sister made for my mom and I. And of course watching the finaly of The Amazing Race. We had great fun and I felt very special. Here is the poem Coleman wrote for me in school (I believe the last word was forgotten, but Coleman insists this is not the case).
A mother’s love is special.
It cannot help but show.
Like flowers in the garden.
Her love makes children.

Judah was excited to pose with Josie.
Just the first of many priceless little looks.

What a happy girl!

I attempted to mess with the color and try to be cool…I don’t think I’ve got it.

Judah in deep thought
My joy…
Josie was probably thinking “Are you seriously still taking my picture?” since I think I took about 50.
…and for the finale…Why? You may ask? The belt, hat and glasses are circa 1950s ish from my grandma…and because it was mother’s day!
