Tribute to Moms

This is me and my mom. One thing that is obvious about my mom is that she loves life, she finds the beauty in things. Although we tease her when she says the snow is sparkling with fabulous crystal of color, or something like that. She's right and it's good to look for the beauty in things. She's taught me to say thank you, and to say only nice things about people. Now I'm not saying I am perfect at doing these things, but because of the example my mom has given me, I think I try harder. My mom is very outgoing and full of life. I love her, and I love that I can have her to call and ask questions to.
Here's Jeremy and his mom. Darlene is such a good Mother in Law. I know so many people who don't like their mother in law's, and I feel sorry for them because mine is awesome. I think she is the most selfless person I know. She definitely raised an amazing man in Jeremy. She's taught him to be smart, faithful, and hardworking. As a grandma she has been so great to Reese, it makes me wish I had had a relationship with my grandma like they do. And on top of that she's been very accepting to me as the only daughter in law, and taken me in on all the fun shopping trips that they love to do. I'm thankful for her, and for what she has done for us as a family.

Quick side note, I saw this in the food network magazine and thought it looked cute so I had to try it. I have to admit it was not as easy as I thought it would be. Jeremy had to help me. (Can I just say that I don't know many men that would be so willing to help their wives stick 50 cupcakes on a styrofoam ball and then hold it while they frost it.) I don't think I could have done it without him, I'm pretty sure I can't frost upside down.
On another note, he did such a good job giving me the best mother's day ever! Apart from me being a bit on the sick side, the day was perfect. He took Reese the day before to the mall and she told the gift wrapping lady that it was for her. The lady asked "You're dad's buying you Gucci perfume?" Jeremy had to tell her it was for me, I think she was a bit worried. I loved being able to relax, and I even got a back rub at the end of the day. Hello awesome! I told Jeremy we need to do that more often. :) Hope everyone had a great day.

I am glad you had a great Mother's Day.
