Mother's Day 2011

There is nothing I don't love about being a Mom.

Yes, even when they barge through my bathroom door when I am....ahem....otherwise indisposed, with no regard for my state of dress (or undress) and regardless of what I am doing - eager for hugs and kisses and to share some latest tidbit.

But this year, I received THE best Mother's Day gift of all.

I over-heard Dahlia, talking to herself.

I heard her say something, totally unsolicited and unprovoked.

" I love my sister!!.......even when she bugs me."

And then I heard the angels sing!

The fam took me out to our favorite spot. And this was the first time I just brought my purse. No diaper bag, no toy bags, no video, no nothing.

We just ate and talked and when needed.....played paddy cake.

I think we're entering into an new era.

Here's a little trip down the lane of Mother's Day past.
(I'm misssing a few and have been desperately trying to find them in this labyrnth called my computer.)

How sweet! What a beautiful family you have. Your girls are just precious! Love the pink dresses. SO cute! And she loves her sister... priceless. ♥

Oh WAN.....this picture is absolutely doubt about favorite to date!

Your girls are stuck to you like glue...just as they are in real life. Your outer beauty is beyond stunning but it just pales in comparison to the woman you are everything you do. And your girls know JUST how lucky they are that they and they alone get to call you Mommy!

Happy Mother's Day, my beloved friend.

I adore you,
