Good times...

Friday, after a bear of a day, I came home to find major surprises in my mailbox. First, I pulled out a Mother’s Day card from Heather. It was so thoughtful of her to send a card on my first Mother’s Day as a mom-to-be. Thank you Heather!! How very very sweet of you!

Then, I grabbed the rest of the mail…only to see a BIG BROWN ENVELOPE! Sure enough, it’s from the U.S. Consulate in Guangzhou, China and contains important visa paperwork for the baby. I’ve been waiting for it, knowing that it would eventually come…so yay! it’s here and now I continue to wait.

Saturday, I worked at our college info booth at the Spokane Shock arena football game. I didn’t want to go alone and my volunteer had canceled on me, so I brought along my sister and my nephew Jackson. Thank god I did, watching Jackson experience his first large sporting event was a kick. He was totally in awe of everything, the people, the music, the players, the cotton candy, and of course, the mascot, Shock the Fox. My sister had done up his hair Mohawk style, so he fit in quite well with all the crazy football fans. It was a hoot and I’m glad I brought them along because I absolutely loathe watching football.

I can't take my eyes off all the action!
Crashed on the way home...

Sunday, after church, my family came over to my house for Mother’s Day brunch. It was nice…

A present from my 4 months and 3, they really do have wonderful painting skills..wink..

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!
