Extra- Extra Special Mother's Day weekend

Not only did I get treated to breakfast in bed made by two of my favorite people on Mother's day morning (even though I got up too early and was sent back to bed to receive it)...
but this year's Mother's Day was especially special with two Extras-
Extra #1 - It was also our anniversary! Six years ago Sunday I married my best friend and it is absolutely amazing to me that I love him more today than ever before, because I thought I loved him the most on our wedding day, but God has continued to grow that love every day since and I feel so blessed in that.

Extra #2 - We dedicated Lincoln to the Lord on Sunday, promising to "bring him up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord" in front of our family, friends and church family. It was extra special to do this on Mother's day!
We pray for Lincoln: "You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus." -2 Timothy 2:1
Georgia folds her hands to pray for her little brother.


And a very special Bonus to this Mother's Day was that I got to spend it with my mom! My parents were in town for the weekend and it was so great to spend this extra-extra special day with them! We kept busy all weekend with all kinds of fun...

Saturday we went to the Buck Creek Festival here in Helena. We watched the ducks race, which was a speed-duck race thanks to all the rain we've had lately and the strong current...
enjoyed some festival treats...

and just having fun together...


Even with an immobile arm from shoulder surgery just 2 weeks ago, dad still managed a project- helping me plant some flowers on the back deck. Thank you BOTH, for a great weekend!
Yes, Goergia put this look together herself, and, yes, I let her go to WalMart with dad & I like this...
On Saturday we also got to help one of Georgia's buddies, Tate, celebrate her 2nd birthday with bubbles and cupcakes. Georgia has been asking to blow bubbles every day since, and keeps singing Happy Birthday. I guess Tate's bday was a good warm-up for mommy's this coming weekend, as this year's Trifecta continues!
