Quick Photo Update

Ok, so I know I haven't posted anything in forever. So, here is a photo update on what we have been doing in the last month.
First, May 9th, a trip to the zoo and Dave and Busters with the fam:

My Mother's Day was spent with this goofball because Chris was participating in a study group all day!!!! But what better way to spend Mother's Day than for the reason you can celebrate it. The same is true for Father's Day :)

And to finish us off, a video of Corey's night-night to Daddy.

You would think we haven't had a busy month. Chris and I are both excited to finish off the end of the school year and spend the summer with Corey!

Awesome friends!!!!

As many of you know I post on a message board that includes ladies that have children that were born the same month Corey was born. I am a member of a subgroup (ELW) and I have participated in craft swaps. Well, I participated in the latest one which was for Mother's Day and was blown away by the thought and creativity that went into gifts that were just for me!!! The rules of the swap were: we needed to make a craft for our partner, give a sentimental item, make something edible, and send a recipe. This is what I received from the wonderful momma Kari, all the way from Oregon!!!! She touched my heart with everything she made:

The box was packaged in ALL blue

The first thing I opened were these yummy cupcake bites (I also got the recipe to go along with them), they are, by now, gone!!!

Beautiful necklace #1 (I wore this on Friday)

Beautiful necklace #2 (will be worn tomorrow)

And this beautiful picture frame with one of my favorite pictures on it. This also came with a heartfelt note that brought me to tears!!!
