Mother's Day

Did everyone have a happy mother's day? Were you sweet to your mamas? I hope so! As for me, I find Mother's Day much more exhausting now that I actually am a mom. Sure, it's become my holiday too and I reap some benefit from that (more on this topic to come) but I am also so much busier that the holiday sneaks up on me and I sort of forget that while I am a mom, I also have a mom (and wonderful mother-in-law), and they need to be celebrated too!

This year we headed down to Peachtree City for a trip to the park and luncheon with both our families. It is so nice to be able to share the day with everyone at once. Violet wasn't feeling her best (again, more on that later) but she put on a brave face for most of the day and everyone enjoyed the afternoon.

Violet and I tag-teamed our gift this year... She colored a picture for Grandma and I put it in a frame.

Violet and "Em-mo"

Even though it was Mother's Day, Mimi couldn't resist getting Violet a present too. After reading on the blog about Violet's new crush on Elmo, she decided to get the girl her very own. And Violet loved it! She has learned to say Elmo's name and is having fun spotting her furry little friend everywhere, on the tv, on her sunglasses, in her room...

Violet started getting cranky around lunchtime, but she perked up when dessert presented itself. As it turns out, she loves trifle. And she was intent on getting as much as she could. The little stinker ran circles around the living room, making a pit stop at everyone holding a dessert glass so she could get a bite!


More please!

Open wide!

Needless to say, Violet had a bit of a second wind after all that sugar. Which was okay, considering how hard she was about to crash.

All us moms and daughters.

Sweet girl.
Oh, and for those of you who are wondering, Violet got me the new Adele CD I've had my eye on: 21. Somehow she knew I'd want it! Clever girl. It was a long, tiring day, but it was so nice to spend it with my favorite moms and my best girl.

  1. I can't believe how thick and long her hair is getting! I can't wait to see how she's walking now! I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
