A Happy Mother's Day & Our {Almost} 6 Month Old

I hope every mother out there had a most blessed Mother's Day this past weekend. I know I did! :) And while I'll always consider last year to be my first Mother's Day, it sure was special this year getting to spend it with our sweet son, Cole.

Here are some photos of our weekend:

Matthew surprised me on Saturday with pedi's and
shopping with girlfriends while he cared for Cole.
So fun! When I got home I was surprised again
with a lovely dinner he had prepared. :)

He set the table with 4 place settings, each one
honoring each member of our family. He even set
one for "June", our Angel Baby. Oh my...did
the tears flow! I have the best husband. ;)
{Sorry for the dark picture}

Dinner was scrumptious: pan-seared fillet mignon,
wilted savory spinach, seasoned roasted potatoes,
shrimp kabobs wrapped in bacon & cheese...
and the best part----this creme brulee he made
himself! I was absolutely blown away. I'm married
to a chef...I had no idea! Now that the secret's out
I'll have to enlist him to cook more often! Ha!

~Mother's Day~

We spent Mother's Day at the beautiful
Dallas Arboretum gardens. A picnic
and a tour of the gardens made this momma
very happy! Here's my little guy sporting
the gift "he" made for me. :)

Delicious personal cherry & peach pies
made by yours truly. ;)

Me, Cole, and my wonderful Momma.
I love you, Mom!!! Soooo much!!!

4 Generations.

My beastly hubby, Cole, and my sweet
Mother-in-law, Ruthanne. ;)

Sisters & Mom in front of one of the
"flower houses". So pretty!

And now for some baby pics....

Happy Tuesday to all!!
