Mother's Day

Ok, so I'm really late in posting this.  Oops.  But I really wanted to share what my super-sweet family did for me.  Saturday when I got home from the book fair, this beautiful picnic table was waiting for me.  Gasp!  I have always wanted one of these for the back yard!
After church the next day,  Brent told me that I could go out and do anything I wanted and he and the kids would clean the WHOLE house!  Woohoo! So I went for a jog and laid by the river. Aaah. (Pardon the workout clothes...)

 Part of the present was that we got to sand and stain it ourselves.  Yes I was so excited!  My hubby knows how much I love a good DIY!  :)  So over the next few days we worked on the table together.....until
 it was done!  Oh I just love it!
 Brent carved each of the kids names into in at the place of their choice.  So special!

To christen the table we had our friends, the Thoms, over for dinner.  What a lovely evening of fellowship.

A few mornings later they took to me one of our favorite breakfast spots, Ginger Browns, for a yummy meal together.  It was perfect!

 I am so blessed to have such a godly husband and sweet kids.  I pray that God uses me in their lives to show His glorious grace!
