My week has been super! It started on Sunday, with Mother's Day. As soon as I stepped out of the bathroom that morning, Braxton said, "Happy Mother's Day!!" and led me to flowers, a card, and a gift on the table. My card was THE CUTEST, and no doubt, Braxton's pick. It was a Toy Story Mother's Day card that sand You Got a Friend in Me. Even though I told Matt that I didn't need a gift on Mother's Day because I had said my purse was my Mother's Day present, he still got me a little something. My gift was precious and I just love it! It is the Brothers Willow Tree figurine. I have 3 other Willow Tree figurines and I love getting more. This was just a perfect Mother's Day gift and I plan on putting it among some of their pictures together. After church (and an awesome sermon), I came home to a sweet surprise. My birthday was on Tuesday (May 11th), but Matt put a little lunch together for Sunday. I walked in, smelled some yummy food, and saw a balloon bouquet, a cake and a table full of presents! My dad had stayed home and got the food together and everything set up. Matt's brother and niece were there, as well. One minute after walking in the house, I turn around and my friend Sarah is knocking in the door! So she, and her husband, and her son Garyn, had lunch with us. It was a nice surprise and a very yummy lunch, and I got some great gifts! Monday, the boys and I did some shopping at Target with some gift cards and birthday money. I truly love spending money on my boys more than I do myself. Moms understand. Tuesday was my birthday! It was super! I felt the love on facebook with all the birthday wishes. When Braxton got home from school, we made an Oreo Cream Cheese Cake. Even though we had a cake on Sunday, Braxton insists that it is not a birthday without a cake. I agree. SO, we did something a little different. Then that night, my dad came over to watch the boys. Matt and I went to eat at Texas Roadhouse (which I haven't been to in so long, but it is one of my favorites). After we ate a superb meal, we went and to the movies. It was so great having a date night. Yesterday, I got the house clean...which always feels good. The boys and I went to the park and even though it was scorching HOT, they had a good time. Today is just a chill day. I am going to make some twice baked potatoes tonight with dinner. Excited about seeing how they turn out. Tomorrow evening we have a birthday party to go to at Chester Frost. It is a little boy's birthday from Braxton's class. It should be fun. We need to go pick out a gift! Also, this week, My Maddox Man has become quite the pro at walking! Last week sometime he finally built the courage to just GO! We knew he could walk but only TO someone. He started going farther and farther, and now he walks everywhere and gets better every day! Here is a little video I caught a few nights ago.
Braxton's 4th birthday is in 2 short weeks. I can't believe it! We will be having his party on the 22nd. Toy Story! Go figure!
My mom will be here next Friday and will stay for a week. So happy about that!
