Hope every mama out there is enjoying their day. I am spending it quietly at home with my sweet girls and hubby. It's a bit chilly outside (yes, I know it's mid-May) and I have still so much work to do in preparation for Quilt Market.

I received some amazing handmade gifts from my girlies this morning... lots of lovely cards and things made in school. Sophie made one of those "MOM" books where they have to fill in the blanks on questions about mom and draw pictures to go along with their answers. I wanted to share what page 3 looks like because it literally made me spit out my coffee this morning (which my sweetie made me using his Mother's Day gift for me)


Do you guys remember that?!?! I guess it made quite an impression on her. If you need a refresher, check out my post about the grasshopper and the owl. For the record, I don't remember smiling like that when I felt something...

In the spirit of Mother's Day, I also wanted to share this little miracle of life that we've been witnessing in our backyard... yes, in our grill again... and yes, we do have a grill cover... and yes, we always for get to put it on (apparently, LOL!)

First there was 1 egg, then there were 3, then there were 4...


And then there were sweet babies... awwww....


Yes, we had them around this time last year too.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all of you!! tweet tweet


  1. Love the grasshopper story. My husband had a large tree roach (we live in Houston) crawling on his foot and he thought it was me playing footsie with him.

    Anyhow, I got a good laugh. Happy Mother's Day to you as well.
