The weekend...

The weekend started out with Savannah having a severe reaction to something, getting hives, bumps, red spots, the left side of her face swelling and her being unable to sleep. She is fine now thank goodness- I still don't know what happened!
Then my other sweet, sleep walking child had some pretty severe night terrors which left me even more sleep deprived. BUT I was able to keep on smiling because I knew that Mother's Day was coming up and I would get a much needed nap.
Mother's Day was wonderful!
The kids helped prepare breakfast and showered me with
homemade cards, jewelry, art, poetry and letters!
Then they made lunch as I picked Jason up from the airport. When we got home-
it happened...
Jason gave me the ok and I went to bed determined to catch some Z's. I locked the door, put in some ear plugs, snuggled into my bed and quickly drifted into dreamland and 2 1/2 hours later... yes I said 2 1/2 hours later I awoke.
I don't think I have EVER taken such a long nap.
I awoke refreshed, happy and with enough energy to survive another year of sleep deprivation.
Thank you Jason and kids for letting me sleep, for the wonderful gifts ( I also got the new Dr. Laura book and another hard drive for my pictures and videos-thanks Jas!), for the delicious prepared meals and most importantly for your love...It is an honor to be a mother to
McKay, Ashley, Carson, Logan, Savannah and Hailey
and a wife to the greatest man in the world.
I love Mother's Day!

So...glad you got a good, solid nap. You needed it. You probably could use a few more like it! I am constantly telling people I don't know how you do it all. You really must be "Super Mom"

You totally deserved a long nap. You survived another weekend. Hopefully your week goes smooth.
