Last day of school!

This school year went by way to fast! This year Kellan and Arley had amazing teachers! I was able to help in their classes every Thursday. I love to see my kids in their classroom setting, playing with their friends and completing school activities together. Both kids seem to love when I help in their classes, but I'm waiting for the day they don't want me to help ;( But until then, I'll be in their classes helping out.

I'm a sucker for photo ops so I printed off some last day of school pictures- Which I found here: 


It was Hawaiian Day so the kids got to dress up! They always love to dress up on spirit days. 

I was able to leave work early and pick both kids up from school. I love getting pictures at school. There is just so much excitement. This years PTA was on top of it and had an End of Year photo op! 

I was able to snap a picture of Arley and Mrs. Costello when she released the kids one last time! Mrs. Costello is such an Amazing teacher. This is our 2nd time having her, and we hope to have her again once Mason gets into Kindergarten.

Then every year, I like to surprise the kids with Balloons at home waiting for them. I have done this ever since preschool and I love the reactions they have. 

After we stopped home for a few minutes, I took them to Tom's Used Book and Cold Stone. These kids love Tom's Used Books Store. Kellan loves finding WWII books and Titanic books and Arley loves the puzzles and all the cats roaming around. Then we walked across the street to Cold Stone and  had ice cream! 

We had such a wonderful last day of school! But we are ready for SUMMER!

Mother's Day 2019 Recap

Hey Everyone! I had a great Mother's Day this past Sunday. I got to go grocery shopping by myself. I treated myself to a non Keto Starbucks. The kids were mostly good- only a few meltdowns. My mom came over and I made us all dinner. I know what your thinking... "Why were you not being pampered by your Husband?" Well I'm not his mother and he had to leave out of town for a business trip for work. I may be the mother to his kids, but he pampers me many other times during the year, so I'm ok with that.

Before I get into how we spent Mother's Day 2019, I just want to take a minute to talk about the most important woman in my life... my mom. My mother has been an amazing mother to me. She has always been selfless by putting me first. Being a single mother, she had to work extra hard just to provide for us. She didn't get child support from my father, who was never in the picture. And she never complained that she had to do it all. I had everything I ever needed and she did it all! She is such a strong women for that and I am so thankful for everything she did for me! 

My mom walking me down the aisle at my Wedding! Love her!

I wouldn’t be the woman, the mom, the wife I am today without her. She has shown me, my family, and my friends who are like family unconditional love. She is always first to offer help with anything. I am so honored to be her daughter. Thanks Mom! I love you!

Now onto how I spent my Mother’s Day. As a mother with 3 kids, I am always happy to go to the grocery store by myself. Just sippin my coffee while I shop is like a little piece of Heaven to me. So my husband watched the kids while I shopped. He knows if I take the kids, I will forget half of everything on my list. I asked my Mom to come over for dinner. we love spending time with Mom Mom.

For mother's Day, I just got my mom a few little things. Here's what I got her:

I made Salmon, veggies, rice and shrimp kebobs. I baked the Salmon in the oven. I prep my salmon by melting a stick of butter and mixing lemon juice and pouring that on top. Then I top it with lots of minced garlic, salt, pepper and basil. Bake it for 40 minutes at 400. It always turns out great! I took the easy way with the rice and made 
Rice-a-roni. I grilled the zucchini and shrimp kebobs on the grill. The Kebobs were a little too spicy for our liking, but everything else turned out great. 

Even though my 3 kids drive me crazy most days, I am so grateful they are mine. I love watching them grow every day into little independent people. As much as I want them to grow up so they can tell me what hurts, or explain what they mean, I really just want them to stay little. Stay innocent. But they can’t. So I will help them when they need help, I will teach them when they want to learn from me, I will comfort them when they are hurt, and I will hold their hand until they are ready to be free. I will always be there, whenever they need me. I have had many jobs in my life, but the best job is being a mother. I love them today, I’ll love them tomorrow and I’ll love them forever.  

Until next time....
