Mother's Day Blessings

We've had a great Mother's Day weekend around the Langham house. Yesterday, my mom and Mike's mom came over and got to spend the weekend with us. I got to go out shopping, sans children, with my mom yesterday afternoon which was such a treat! We just went to a couple stores, but it was nice to look around without having to watch which rack my kids were crawling under!

We decided to go ahead and give the grandmas their gifts yesterday because we just couldn't wait any longer...
They loved their plates. Tanner and Rachel decorated these and had a great time doing it. Tanner is with her mom this weekend enjoying Mother's Day as well. We hope you guys have had a super day!!!

The grandmas also got recruited to make brownies. They were delicious!! And notice Porter was in on the action, too. :)

This morning, Mike got up and made breakfast for us all (with just a bit of help from Rachel). We had banana pancakes and bacon. Delicious, Babe!! Great job! Then we went to church for Porter's dedication. We have Baby Dedication twice a year at our church, Thanksgiving weekend and Mother's Day. It's always a special time. I've gotten to dedicate both my babies on Mother's Day and it's been such a wonderful blessing.

And for my gift, Mike allowed me to hire someone to come clean my house last Thursday and then he and Rachel detailed my car today. I'm the type of person that if someone cleans for me, that means as much or more than getting an tangible present. It was the most wonderful feeling to walk into my house on Thursday and just smell the clean and look at my house and know that someone had come in to clean all the things that take me forever to do with a 4 year old and a 7 month old running around all the time. Knowing that I didn't have to clean anything to get ready for my guests this weekend was more of a blessing than I can even begin to express! I was elated!!

I've had the privilege to spend time with my moms (mine and Mike's) this weekend, had a girls movie night last night with them, see my baby boy be dedicated to the Lord this morning, and now, I'm sitting here this afternoon, just being lazy, enjoying my children and my husband. I'm blessed beyond measure and thank God every minute for the joy of being a mom.

We had a great day yesterday as well. Thank you so much for helping Tanner get a card and gift for me, since Steve's not feeling well. She was so excited about it and I know it made her feel so grown up to have her "own gift" for me. I appreciate you guys a ton!

I'm so glad you got to spend time with both of your Mom's this past weekend. What a blessing!

Happy Belated Mother's Day!
