My First Mother's Day :)

Goodness gracious, this is just ridiculous.  I cannot believe how far behind I am on this blog!  Thank you to all of you for waiting so patiently.  

I came to a realization the other day that I don't like blogging unless I have a huge, impressive post to share with everyone.  I'd like to change this way of thinking.  I'm sure you would appreciate hearing from me more often, even if it's just a quick, picture-free "hello" post.  I'll try to be better.  :}

I thought I should start by sharing pictures of my first Mother's Day with you. :)  I am quite irritated with myself that I didn't post any pictures until now...but I suppose there's no use beating myself up about it. ;)

On Mother's Day, Emilie was up bright and early.

She gave me a card she'd made all by herself.

She hovered over me while I read it, holding her breath while she waited for my reaction.

Here's the front...

...and here's what the inside looked like. 

Of course, I loved it!  What mother wouldn't? ;)  I gave her a big hug and thanked her.

But Emilie wasn't the only one with a surprise in store. 

Robby brought me fresh roses from Beast'sbelle's front yard.

He's such a sweetie. :)

Beast'sbelle insisted that we should take a family portrait together. ;)  I love how this one turned out. :)

Oh, and for those of you who are observant and curious, yes, I did get a haircut.  A rather major one, as you can see from the above picture.  My hair had gotten so ratty and awful that I didn't really have a choice.  It's not the best haircut in creation (Beast'sbelle's not all that great with scissors), but it will do.  Beast'sbelle has offered to curl it for me, but I'm still deciding whether I feel like hanging upside down over a pot of boiling water.  Are a few curls really worth going through that?  I'm not so sure... ;)

I have more to share with you, including Emilie's playdate and updates on Eugene and Rapunzel, but that will have to wait for another time.  I hope all of you moms out there had a lovely Mother's Day too. :)  I'll be back with more to share very soon. :)
