A mother’s love

We got a wonderful Christmas present early this year…my mom came to visit us! We talk to her at least once a week on skype and then some on the phone, but obviously it’s not enough. Liam was in HEAVEN to have her here. I had some fun activities planned out and we tried to do every Christmas themed thing we could think of. Shopping, singing, cooking, wrapping presents and definitely a lot of playing. We saw some beautiful lights at the Gaylord Texas Resort, and Liam had a hayday at our local jump house. My favorite part of the week is when my mom and I played games at the kitchen table. Something so simple, but something that I love. Especially playing speed rounds of ‘Cover Your B U T T’.

So handsome!Dropping mom off at the airport.

I am still that little girl that cries in the car whenever I have leave family. I think it’s something that I will always do!
We had a fabulous time and wished it would have been longer. My mom is one of the most kind, loving and patient people I know. I love her and am proud to be her daughter!

    I love it when family visits! It's so hard to be away from them. I think I scared my kids the last time we dropped my mom off at the airport, I was crying so hard! But thank goodness for the moments they come and visit, it sure is a refresher for the spirit!
