Mother's Day 2015

I always feel extra special on Mother's Day.  Neil, the kids, my family, and Neil's family always make sure I have a good day.  Mother's Day 2015 was no different.  I've decided that Sarah Kathryn and I will try to match on Mother's Day every year.  I really hope we can do this!  It is so much fun to match my girl...hope she wants to match until she is 25!  I have a feeling she will think it's dumb by about 9.  I will try!

We had lunch at Trace, came home and cleaned up the yard, and Neil cooked a delicious dinner.  Low key=just what I needed.  

Our Family
Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
Happy Mother's Day, Nana!

I've been wanting one of these handwritten fill-in sheets about myself forever. Bennett brought this little gem home to me.  I
am good at "Seegeen" according to Bennett. Yesssssssss!  (Singing)

Henry's teacher made a delicious breakfast for all the mom's for a Mother's Day breakfast.  She had everything decorated so cute and she even gave me a gift certificate to Akin's!  So sweet of her!  She really goes above and beyond!  I loved spending the morning with my sweet Henry.

Here's the placemat I got to use for breakfast at Henry's school.  He drew our family and answered a few questions about me.
My mother's name: Lindsey
She is so..."beautiful"
Her favorite thing to do with me is... "play with me"
The very best things about her is... "she makes dinner"
This is what she does everyday to make me feel special... "she helps my dad out"

Crawfish Boil 2015

Along with the Dicharry's, Raines', and Hanna's, we hosted a crawfish boil at our house.  It was a great party and SO MUCH FUN!  The Raines' always host Christmas party, the Hanna's always host a Halloween party, the Dicharry's will host anything at their home and so will we...what I am trying to say is...when these 4 families get together to's gonna be good!  If it sounds like bragging...I am! :)  I love these people!  

Dad was so nice to book a band for the event.  We certainly wouldn't have had a band, but he likes to do it and we like for him to!  Thanks, Dad!

 The only thing that went wrong was the 16 foot blow up slide.  There were about 10 kids in it when I noticed that it started deflating.  It was so scary.  Erin and I were the first responders and we tried to pull the thing back over.  It was so heavy!  I looked up and about 40 adults were sprinting across the yard to help.  It was like something out of a movie! The kids were fine, but we were all a little shaken up.  Needless to say, the slide was deflated the rest of the party.

Amy and Daniel's Fiesta

We, along with 10 other couples hosted a couples shower fiesta for Amy and Daniel.  Catherine and Bryce's backyard is just gorgeous!  I mean NICE!  They were so sweet to host the event at their home.  The weather was perfect and they received so many special gifts for their married life together!

Loved the tables...especially the long black tablecloths.  The tablecloths made a huge difference in the look.

The future Daniel M. Williams family.

We came up with a "Make your own Vodka Freeze Bar" that was genius!  We had a vodka freeze machine with different additives for your drink.  I love for parties to have an activity.

Becky and me

My hair was looking rough by this point

Fajitas for the senor and senorita

Margaret painted the fabulous sheet.  Here are most of the hosts and hostesses.

Mother/Daughter Brunch

Emily and Connie hosted a super fun Mother/Daughter brunch again this year.  Here we are last year when she was 11 days old.  Eeeeeek!  I love being able to match my girl!  There were tons of kids this year and it was so sweet to see mommies and babies matching.  

All the double names: Ella Cate, Anna Claire, and Sarah Kathryn

Me and the sweetest girl who would not let me put her down for 1 second

Amy was about to head to her shower so she couldn't stay long

First Field Day

Oh, field day!  One of my favorite days of my elementary mom always took off work to be at field day.  This year was no different...she was at Bennett's too!  Field day is a lot different than what I remember...they have inflatables, face painting, and even field day shirts.  I remember we had concessions, 3 legged race, and relay races.  We had all that, but it was far more sophisticated!

Sweet Fajardo friends

Gammy and Bennett

Jack, Bennett, and Easton
One thing I knew, but had confirmed for me today is that Bennett is competitive!  He was SERIOUS!  My aunt would have loved it!  He was determined and loved every minute of the competitions.  He had a serious look on his face the whole time he raced!

So serious!

During tug-o-war he practically pulled the other 3 kids down.  hmmmmm. He wants to WIN!
