Mother's Day weekend was a busy time around here! We usually celebrate with a Sunday lunch at my mama's.....very seldom going to a restaurant. I guess it's because we like to be able to relax and chat about anything and everything. Truth be known, we probably get a little too loud to be in a public place for any length of time! It's nothing to have three or four conversations going on at the same time in one room. Yes...we're a chatty bunch ;)
My baby sister, Shaana, doesn't usually make it home from Raleigh for Mother's Day. It's just too long of a drive! Thank goodness for phones, Skype, blogging, and Facebook! It sure makes the miles seem a little less in between.
I love being a mama! I especially love being a mama to this sweet boy!
He makes it easy! And for that, I am very thankful!!! I'm enjoying having him home for a little while this summer. He worked really hard his first year of college and I think he deserves this much needed break! We found him a loft apartment in downtown ATL and will move him in next month, but I'm sure he'll come home a good bit more while he's got so much free time. We've also scheduled a beach trip in June, so we will all be able to get away and relax for a few days.
Some of us are still in school :( Yes...I'm still working on my masters. I haven't talked about it much on here, but it's going very well. Much easier going part-time than maintaining a full time school schedule along with full time work! So far, I've got A's in all of my class....yay!
It's ironic that I came across a box full of baby memories over Mother's Day weekend as well. Dillan's baby book is full of writings, notes, and mementos. I didn't want to forget a single thing so I basically documented everything he did. Too bad we didn't have blogs back then. I would have loved to have all of that right at my fingertips!

Christy is a very special person to me. I have many fond memories of our high school years....we actually graduated together. I didn't know her very well when we were little, but it's nice to know that family members can also make great friends. I decided a LONG time ago that family was the most important thing to me here on earth after my relationship with Jesus Christ. That comes pretty easy when you come from a family deep seeded in the Christian faith. I'm so thankful that I was born and grew up in a two-parent, Christian home. I don't know where I'd be today if that had not been the case.
I hope all of you had a good Mother's Day weekend as well and enjoyed spending time with your family. Let me leave you with this picture I saw on Facebook recently:
