Mothers Day

I had a great Mothers Day! I got to sleep in and when I woke up I was greeted by two cute boys (well, three!) and a cup of coffee. I opened some sweet gifts then got ready for church. We had lunch with my mother-in-law then I came home and immediately left the house. Ha! I just wanted to be out alone, get a pedicure and take my time in Pottery Barn. So that's what I did.
I told Scott that all I really wanted for Mothers Day were some pictures of me with the boys. A true gift from Scott because his least favorite thing is taking photographs of kids. Well, maybe just our kids? I don't know. But he cannot handle that they don't stand still and it frustrates him so he's over it in about .02 seconds. You really do have to have a lot of patience to photograph kids. I will totally wait an hour to get a good shot so it doesn't bother me but Scott cannot deal with the craziness and out of focus photos. And I really do believe our kids are the absolute worst when it comes to taking photos. Scott says it's because I have a camera in their face all the time. Whenever I photograph other families the kids are SOOOOO good and still. What the heck? Ugh. So anywho, for Scott to say yes to taking our photos made me feel loved. Haha!! So after dinner we went out to a field and snapped a few shots. And by a few I mean about 300 and only about 5 of them were in focus but that's okay because that's all I needed! :)
I'm just beyond thankful to be a mother. It's the role I dreamed my whole life as having and it hasn't disappointed me one little bit. I longed to be a stay at home mother my whole life so to have my dream job gives me a level of happiness I could never express. I didn't realize how incomplete I was until I became a mother. These boys are my world.
