Cards & Gifts For Me

May 14th, 2017 | Category: chloe, family, shane

Chloe got me lovely cards and a letter!

Chloe also gave me a candle and a deck of postcards as presents and Shane made me a flower pot.

At the end of the day, I noticed I didn’t get anything written from Shane aside from things he made for me from school… I called him out and told him I was sad that he didn’t give me a card. 🙁  A few minutes later, this paper airplane landed on my bed.

Happy Mother’s Day

May 14th, 2017 | Category: chloe, house, party planning

Andrew’s left yesterday for a business trip to Scotland and UK.
Chloe was sad about her dad leaving especially because he’ll miss mother’s day. She was also sick with a cold and allergies that she was stressing about for days for not being able to do much for me on mother’s day. She really is the sweetest girl!! As any mother’s would say, it’s the thought that counts! I know her heart and I am just so thankful for her love for me and her caring heart… I am so blessed!

She didn’t get me a beautiful breakfast-in-bed, but she did prepare breakfast for all of us, a simple toast and breakfast drinks before leaving early for church this morning.  She’s the best!

For lunch, I thought it would be nice to have my in-laws over for a meal to celebrate this special day with them . We had a lovely time. Happy mother’s day!

Chloe joined Lacrosse this spring. I don’t really don’t know this sports but looking forward to seeing her play.

She’s gotten really busy these days with her sports. She practices lacrosse three times a week plus playing games, runs track on Wednesdays and does yoga on Thursdays.

Happy Sunday!

Tonight calls for spinach and avocado pesto filled cheese with cannelloni bean salad for dinner which Chloe did most of the prep cooking.

Kids and I sat on the porch and had this simple and delicious dinner sans the golfer Dad.

There they go again… rolling on the grass on top of each other.
