Mother's Day and Moving

Happy Mother's Day evening!  I'm about ready to roll into bed but knew if I didn't update the blog now it wouldn't get done this week.  Reason being is that we're moving this coming weekend!  I figure any free time that I have this week should probably be spent packing boxes rather than blogging :)  

Happy Mother's Day to my Mom.  I love you very much Mom and am so thankful for you!
And Happy Mother's Day to my mother-in-law Tricia...thankyou for raising such a great son!!!

We had a wonderful day.  We've all been battling nasty colds and have been working our buns off at the new house (more on that in a minute) so we all slept in this morning.  Once we were all up and around Travis took us all out to a late breakfast at Cracker Barrel.  Oh My YUM!  We had a nice breakfast aside from tired and snotty Colt throwing a gigantic fit all through breakfast.  I like to think he was wanting to make sure I remembered I was a mother on this lovely Mother's Day :) 

After our brunch we headed over to Trav's parents for visiting and lunch.  
Then home for naps!!!  We all napped until 5:30!  It felt absolutely glorious and was just what the dr. ordered!  After naps the kids played in the kiddie pool while Trav grilled brats for our dinner.

It was the perfect Mother's Day in my book!  Lots of relaxing, resting, time with my sweet husband and babies and good food!  The Lord has been so good to our family and I was reminded of that today.  I am so thankful for my sweet babies that He has blessed me with.

We attempted to get a picture of the babes and I.  Out of ten pictures taken the following two were the best of the group.  :)
They're definitely not great pictures... but I absolutely LOVE them because it shows what life is really like at this stage in our lives!  I love the fact that I'm covered in sweet babes :) Nothing better! 
God is so good!

We spent Thursday through Saturday of this weekend cleaning and painting the inside of our new home.
We are LOVING the location of it!  Right next to a lake and in a beautiful wooded area.  It's definitely going to be a change from where we're at now!
Saturday morning Travis and his dad burned huge piles of leaves.  The smell of the pine trees and burning leaves smelled so wonderful!
The back of the new house has a large back porch.  I'm really looking forward to drinking my coffee out there in the morning!
The kids had the best time hunting earth worms all weekend.  I have never EVER in my life touched a worm nor do I ever plan on doing so. Gross.  However sweet Emma absolutely loves worms!  At one point she had six wriggling worms clutched in her little paw.  

This picture cracks me up!  Hot pink outfit and sunglasses... the perfect outfit to hunt earth worms in ;)

This is the view of the lake from my new kitchen window. 
 I think it will make washing dishes not seem quite so bad!


Off to bed... big week ahead!
Happy Mother's Day!
Nighty Night!
