I love being a mom. It is the most challenging yet rewarding experience of my life. I couldn't love my boys more than I do. They teach me so much and bring such happiness into my life. So every year I get so excited that my birthday and Mother's Day are so close together! I get spoiled two weeks in a row!!!
As I said before, for my birthday this year, Nathan and I got to got o the Carrie Underwood concert. And of course since their were no kids around, I didn't get any pictures of Nathan and I, but I did remember to get some of Carrie!! She put on a great show and I was so happy that we got to go. O also got to spend a night away from the kids!! Nathan kept asking me what I wanted for my birthday, and I would tell him all I want is a few hours by myself. Well he recruited his mom and they spoiled me with a night at a hotel and a massage the next day. It was HEAVEN!!! Although I did miss all 3 of my boys:)
Then, my sister flew out and surprised me. She took a shuttle from the airport and was sitting on our couch watching tv when we walked in from church. I think Carter was way more surprised than me, although we were both equally happy to have her here!! Once he realized who it was, he ran around screaming and laughing. I love it when my sister comes!! The next day for my actual birthday, we went out to dinner and had some cake.
