Mother's Day Weekend!

On Saturday, Emersyn and I took some friends house hunting. It was a great way to enjoy the beautiful weather. Emersyn did great too, which I was really happy about. She was in the car for about 4 hours that day but was a happy little clam, being entertained by her "Uncle" Andrew in the back seat. She only slept for about 40 minutes of the whole drive; life can be just too exciting to sleep!!

After we hunted for houses, we headed back to our house where we had a BBQ with our friends and also my brother and his girlfriend. Emersyn is so blessed to have people that love her so much.

Some of my favorite people. :)

I think I mentioned a couple weeks ago that we got a Wii. Well, we also got a Wii Fit! It is SOOOO much fun!!! David, Brett and I all set up profiles and are going to have a contest this summer, biggest loser style. That will be fun. Anyways, we had fun playing with the Wii and got a new game for it, Rayman’s Rabbids. We had a lot of good laughs and it was fun to put our new toy to use.

Sunday was my first “official” Mother’s Day. Brett was so sweet last year, he made me breakfast in bed and thought that we should celebrate even though I was only pregnant. This year I was officially legit. :) Brett had to work in the afternoon which was a bummer but I still had a great day. Poor Emersyn is teething so I gave her some Tylenol before she went down for her nap and it worked like a charm. Emersyn slept for 2 ½ hours and I slept for about 2. It was glorious and well deserved. I haven’t napped like that since she was born. It was the best present a mommy could ask for, one that couldn’t be bought!!

On our way to church, both of us looking pretty sleepy!

I am so thankful to this little girl for making me a mama….I could cry when I think of how blessed I am and what a perfect child I am so privileged to call my own.

I wish I could have spent the day with this lovely lady......

Mother's Day 2006

Hope you had a great day in Minnesota Mom! Bring "Mamma Mia" with you in June so we can watch it with Emersyn! I am sure she would love to dance along to all the songs with her Grammy!!!
