Mother's Day

Luke makes this face all the time.

I had the best Mother's Day. Stephen got me a digital camera so I could post pictures on my blog. I was so excited. I had been wanting one for a while. He also got me an MP3 player to take to the Y. He told the kids to tell me they got me a car vacuum cleaner. Obviously, what I got was better! Anyway, it was a really good day. We went to church with my mom, who the kids call Meme, and a lot of my family was there. I have such a great mom. She has always been so supportive of me. She is very encouraging of me and loves my kids so much. I don't know what I would do without her. We spent the day with her and all went to eat at O'Charley's that afternoon. Stephen came down with some sort of stomach bug that morning, so he spent the day at home. I don't realize how much he really helps me until I have a whole day without him. He is the best father and does so much to help me at home. I am so blessed! I was pretty tired Sunday night when we finally got home, but it was still a really good day. We went to Knoxville on Friday to watch Stephen's brother, Mark, graduate from UT. On Saturday, we went to the zoo with the family. It was so much fun. The kids didn't want to leave. Stephen's grandparents went to the zoo with us. We love spending time with them. They still talk about each other with such love and admiration. It is so refreshing to spend time with them. I was telling Stephen about some of the things they said about each other over the weekend and he said that he was looking forward to us growing old together. Me too, honey. I will post pictures from that trip when I get them from PaPa. I didn't have my camera yet! I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Just to clarify something:
It was Claire's idea to tell you we got you a car vacuum.

Beyond that, it truly was a great weekend. Sorry that my internal system put a damper on your Mother's Day. :(
