Mother's Day was, um, "magical".

I had a fabulous Mother's Day. I of course spent the day with my children and I loved every single moment of it. Allison made me ~tons~ of handmade things for me. Each thing she created was better than the last. Ella made me things too. And Karl painted me a flower and a magnet.

But then came the best part. They came into the living room holding two wrapped presents.

I opened it.

The first was a 11x14 matted and framed picture of Karl. The frame was blue and it made his eyes just stand out so beautifully. The second was another framed picture, this one of all three kids. I took one look at it and I burst out crying.

Our friend Laurel took some amazing pictures at Ella's birthday party, and unbeknownst to me, she got them ready for printing and my husband took them down to get framed. What amazing friends, kids and a husband I have. I just don't have words for how lucky I am.
