I slept in. Until 8. The kids made me gorgeous cards, presented me with a new charm for my bracelet with "Bean" and "Buster" (their nicknames) engraved on each side. Can I tell you how much I love this tradition?! Every year since becoming a Mommy, I received a charm. I love things in little blue boxes, and the fact that Chuck has been building me this gorgeous bracelet every year...it totally melts my heart.
My hubby made me coffee, a great bowl of berries, and I relaxed.
Somehow the house became quiet, and I read on my iPad. With my feet up. And a cup of coffee. I swear it was total bliss. Chuck and the kids planned a trip to the country to pick strawberries. We laughed, we had sweet family time. It was a total blessing. I watched some crazy movie on Lifetime while the three of them went to HomeDepot. I drank a hot cup of tea in a quiet house. I'm now sitting outside after a grilled steak dinner with my beautiful family enjoying syrah. Seriously, I have to brag. I'm so blessed. I love these kids. I love this family. And as crazy and challenging as this life is, I wouldn't change a thing.
|My loot. Can't decide if the handwritten card with "Luv Christian" or the Tiffany's charm is my favorite....|
|Strawberry patch love!|
|Such a helper.|
|One good thing about terrifically tacky restaurants: They serve Margaritas with BEER in them.|
