Mother's Day

I'm usually not this horrible about updating our blog, but I just haven't been feelin' it lately, but I'm hoping to post more regularly now.

So I had a wonderful Mother's Day, but the highlight of my day was talking to Thomas. It was so great to hear his voice, he's still very sarcastic and funny. He's doing great and I'm so proud of him. I love him so much.

The guys all helped make dinner and we had dutch oven food which is always awesome. My dad cooks some pretty great chicken and potatoes, but I think my Grandpa Cliff still has him beat. :) His were always so good.

Anyway, Tyler spoiled me this year and got me something I've been dying to have: a quilting mat, ruler, and a rotary cutter; I was super excited. Before he went shopping he asked me for five ideas so that I would still be surprised; I liked that game. I've already used it so much this week.

It was great to spend time with my mom on Mother's Day. I love her so much. She has always been such a great role model for me. One of her greatest qualities is her ability to ALWAYS give people the benefit of the doubt. She is always saying kind things about others, and I can only count on one hand people like that. I love her for that because she's really stressed that in our lives and I rarely even notice negative things about others. She's a beautiful woman and so very talented. I love you, Mom!

We also got to spend time with Tyler's mom on Mother's Day. She's a great woman and we love her!

Jacoby has been loving this nice weather we've been having. Dang it, it's about time!
Isn't he handsome?
He loves going on bike rides with mom, but hates the helmet. Tough, kid. I've loved having a neighborhood to ride bikes in. It's lots better than Rexburg with all the hills because man I'm not in good enough shape to plow up those.
This is Jacoby's cheeser smile.
Loved this outfit on my little man.

I've been working out a lot of projects lately, but the most exciting has been redecorating our bedroom. I'm pretty much done, so I hope to post some pictures in the next few days. I've been decorating Jacoby's room more too, but we can't hang up anything at this house we're renting, so I'll wait until we move.

We're getting ready to have a big giveaway on our recipe blog because our 2-year anniversary is coming up, so I hope you'll check it out: Make Your Tastebuds Dance.

I agree with you about Grandpa Cliff's dutch oven food. But dinner was still fabulous. It was fun to get together. Jacoby looks so handsome. I love his cheesy smile. :)
Your house looks great. Sorry you can't hang anything up.
