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.
|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)

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 host..it'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!

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.|

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

Oh, field day! One of my favorite days of my elementary career...my 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!
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!
|Sweet Fajardo friends|
|Gammy and Bennett|
|Jack, Bennett, and Easton|
|During tug-o-war he practically pulled the other 3 kids down. hmmmmm. He wants to WIN!|
