Catching Up

*Warning this is a long post, it has been a while.

It has been a minute since I last posted so I figured I would catch everyone up to speed.  We have had a busy few weeks around our house.  Last week was teacher appreciation week at the boys' daycare so we sent different things to the teachers every day.  One of the days the boys were to make handmade cards, so I got creative.  Here are the boys cards for their teachers.

The hands are Jacob's and the feet are Colyn's.  I thought they turned out pretty cute.  I took the idea from the Mother's Day gifts we made for all their grandmothers.  My boys are blessed to have two grandmothers, three great-grandmothers and one great-great-grandmother still living.  Here are their gifts and the two things I had made for myself.

The elephant on the spoon rest is Jacob's finger prints.  I thought everything turned out really cute!

Friday night several of my girlfriends and I went to a wine tasting.  There was a live band after the tasting and they were really good.  We had a great time.   It was nice to hang out, talk and just unwind from all the stress in our everyday lives.  I love these girls to death and don't know what I would do without them.

Sunday was Mother's Day and we had Colyn dedicated at church.  He did so good.  It meant so much to me to be able to have him dedicated on that day because Jacob was also dedicated on Mother's Day two years ago.

After church both mine and Jarred's families came up to cookout.  We had a house full but we are so blessed to have such wonderful families.  It was such a beautiful day so we got to spend most of it outside.

I hope everyone had a Happy Mother's Day.  This week has not been so hot, Colyn and I are both sick with the crud.  He actually has an ear infection and is coughing and I have completely lost my voice.  We are slowly getting better.  He got to try carrots for the first time yesterday and he really seemed to like them.

Jacob has been a busy little man just being an almost three year old.  He can not wait for his birthday and asks me everyday how much longer it will be.  I can not believe my baby is about to be three.

Okay, sorry for all the randomness but I really wanted to get all this written just so I can remember it.  I hope everyone has a great week!
