|Breakfast in bed made by my daughters included eggs, toast, sliced bananas, and side of ketchup!|
Growing up I envisioned myself being a hard-working career woman who maybe got married and maybe had a family, eventually. I thought I'd be graduated from college with a master's degree and have a nice home paid off before I ever met a guy that would be interested in me. Then we might consider having kids, or not.
In a very popular song from the Disney movie Frozen there is a line that says, "People don't really change." HA! Isn't that a load of steaming garbage being sung by little voices everywhere. I'll be the first to tell you, people change. They are dynamic! They are changing all the time! And such was the case with my plans for my future. I got older, and wiser, and the closer I drew to God, the more my plans changed. Getting married and starting a family wasn't some foreign afterthought.
|Amara bought me that cute plate that says "love," and both she and Lily made me the paper flower.|
"I love you so much as a mom,
you are the best, you are the bomb.
You are super, kind, and true,
So a very happy mother's day to you!"
|I made my mom and kids a hotdog omelet, sliced banana bread, and strawberries.|
We had a special dinner prepared by Steve! It was an exhausting effort for him, but he put out an amazing spread!
|Mom used her natural talent of decorating to set the table.|
|The dessert was at Swain's Brother's Restaurant in Vernal. Steve only ordered dessert, he knew he'd need his entire stomach to finish this monstrous dessert. He actually never even finished it.|
To finish the evening off, my brother and his family from Hawaii Skyped us! We got to visit for a good hour before it was time for him to get his Mother's Day meal moving.
|Malia, JJ, and Joe!|
|This is what you get when you ask your brother to smile for a picture.|
|Maizie doing a handstand and Malia watching.|
|Malia can do a backbend!|
|This was JJ shortly after attempting something called a "air flip." He did a front flip and landed flat on his back. It was the first time he ever tried doing one.|
|Maizie had some funny faces for us too!|
|This one is Amara's.|
|This one was Lily's.|
