Mother's Day 2012

This Mother's Day has been great! MUCH better than I anticipated, with Derek being gone. The kids have been so well behaved, church was awesome, and I haven't had to cook anything all day. When I woke up this morning I found a gift on my doorstep of Diet Dr. Pepper (my FAVORITE) and a sweet card from Kristin, I was so surprised and it started my day off nicely. After church this morning I took some family pictures for Mother's Day,
Here's a picture Jessica snapped for me 
and then we went out to eat with the McMurtreys at D'egg, downtown.

 It was really great food, and Eric even paid, which was a nice surprise. (Thanks again guys!!)

(The kids at Lunch):

 And since I didn't have to buy lunch I decided to order pizza for dinner.  I also got a nice little surprise from Derek, the sweetest email EVER and a picture.

Is that not the sweetest thing you've ever seen?

 The only thing that could have made this day any better is if he were able to be here. I hope all you moms had a great day too!!!


  1. It makes me smile to see you so happy, Mandy!! Happy Mother's Day to the mom that really earns the title! I love you! <3

  2. Glad you had a great day! My son and grandkids are so blessed to have you for a wife/mother. Happy Mother's Day!
