Two tickets in the Bain house this month. I got the first one....cell phone use in a school zone. BOO.
However, today in the mail, Bo got the second one. It is a red light violation. Oops.
I honestly thought it was me when I opened it. I tend to run red lights

First off, let me say I know this isn't a very good picture, but I wanted it to be authentic. That meant looking over, grabbing my camera and shooting before they were finished. No time for settings!
This is what happens each time we are leaving the house. Abby takes Hunter over to the shoe basket and they sit and she helps him with his shoes. Then she puts hers on. She is such a little Mommy to him and a big help to me. I am loving throwing on crocs and flip flops and not fighting over socks and tennis shoes! YEE-HAW!! Happy Thursday!

It was such a great weekend all around! We started the celebrating on Friday night with a fish fry at the golf club, balloons and cupcakes. Saturday morning Bo took the kids to get donuts and came back with a large Diet Coke for me. Happy Birthday to ME. That man takes care of me! We went to Babes for lunch with my little family. When we got home, Bo told me I had a massage appt and off I went. It was fabulous and always a welcomed treat. I got home in time to shower and get dressed up for a date night with my man. We ate and enjoyed the fun atmosphere of the area. Perfect weather and a perfect night out! Thank you for everything, Bo.
Mother's Day is today. I was sitting back watching my kids play this morning and just thanked the Lord for a few people in my life:
First of all for Abby and Hunter. What a blessing it is to be their mom. I can't imagine my life without them.
Secondly, I thanked Him for my mom who has always been and continues to be such an amazing example of a Godly woman. She never complains or speaks unkind words about anyone. She loves my dad and her family unconditionally. She is truly a Proverbs 31 woman. I am so thankful for her.
Next, I thanked the Lord for my sister. What an amazing testimony she is to many other moms who have babies in Heaven. She is a mom to three pretty special children and such a great example of faith and grace.
The fourth person I thanked the Lord for was my incredible sister in law who is about to become a mom to a little boy in South Korea. He will be here any day. Love Meredith's heart and willingness to be open to the Lord and what He has told their family to do. My little nephew is about to meet an amazing woman and call her MOM!
And then I thanked God for all of the moms that I walk through life with on a daily basis. These are moms that I have cried with, laughed with and just been silly with. I love raising my children next to them and couldn't do it without them. Each and every day they are there right by my side. Thanks!
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there. I love you and know today that YOU are special!

Today was another special day! I can't tell you how sweet Hunter's Mother's Day tea was this morning. He had no idea what was going on other than I went in to the class with him, played for a bit and ate a special snack of "baby fruit" and cookies with him. His teachers are so precious and went all out to make us feel so special and didn't have to at all. Love them.
The teachers made us this little book with the kid's pictures (love the bib on in the pic) and handprints in them. They also made us a necklace with our child's fingerprint on it. What a special idea. I love it.
Again, I feel so blessed to be Hunter and Abby's mom. What a gift the Lord has given me! Happy Tuesday and Happy Mother's Day!

This past weekend was another fun one. Lucas (Bo's bil) and the girls came up from League City to spend the weekend with us. Lucas had a bike race on Saturday and we got to hang out with the girls. Abby was in HEAVEN. These two are precious and let Abby follow them around and copy their every move all weekend long. Bless their hearts! Hunter, on the other hand, is obsessed with Lucas and sat in his lap and read books with him when he could. H is ALL about books right now. He will sit for an hour and let you read to him or read in his chair. It's so precious and nice to know he can be so still for that long! : )
We really just played at the house, ran a few errands and celebrated Cinco de Mayo on Saturday with fajitas and margaritas, of course! When the girls left on Sunday I thought Abby might just cry. We love you, Hilbrichs and can't wait to see you again!

Yesterday was Abby's Mother's Day Tea at school. Can I just tell you how much I LOVE where my kids go to MDO? Ahhh...the teachers are amazing and they do such special things all during the year. This, of course, is one of my favorites. I love that God chose ME to be Abby and Hunter's Mom.
The moms all arrived at 1:00 and found our seat in the room. The children all came in and recited Psalm 139. Love that Scripture and love that Abby is hiding these words in her heart. After a prayer, the kids joined their mom and showed us all of the neat things they made for us. Abby was so proud of her "secrets" she had kept from me. We then ate snacks and talked with each of her teachers and friends. Abby LOVES her teachers this year. Every year they have been wonderful. We are so thankful for each of them!
Happy May and Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms out there!!
