Mother's Day 2016 and Little Bear's Dedication...

My husband fully executed my best Mother's Day ever :-) this year

Last year Ava Rose had colic and mostly screamed at me on Mother's Day so anything would have been a vast improvement, but he went above and beyond to make it special for me.  My day started off with a sleeping in (until 8 am), a hot shower, and a morning mimosa.

Oh and Ava surprised me with a locket that I've been wanting from a local jewelry artisan - it's a vintage locket with  pearls set along a gold chain.

We surprised baby girl with a new set of earrings, little pearls with screw backs in honor of her dedication.

Our moms and R's sister met us at church for Nugget's dedication, it was such a sweet ceremony.  We committed her to God and the Pastor prayed over the babies.  The babies receive a certificate and personalized bible and the moms were given a bud vase with a red rose.

We took some family photos:

Afterward had brunch back at our house - R made a breakfast casserole and created a donut tower. My sister in law made fruit salad and blueberry muffins and my mom brought mini ham and turkey sandwiches.  Gramma and Grammy spoiled our girl with affection and gifts for her special day.

We totally skipped dinner and had chips and salsa leftover from our Derby party and leftover sandwiches.  Of course for dessert R made brownies because they are our collective favorite goodie.

Oh and we got a full night's sleep without having to get up with Ava, which is still a rarity in our house. Chalk this one up in the record books as one of my favorite days!
