{Weekending}

Happy Monday! I don't know about y'all, but Monday morning came entirely too fast. I woke up this morning and my first thought was how? How is the weekend already over? It was a busy weekend for sure, but a really really good one. And you guys...this post almost didn't happen. My computer was running slow, I couldn't get anything to upload to photobucket and it was just chaos. That's a Monday for you.

Friday we spent the evening cleaning and prepping for Mason's birthday party on Saturday. And in true Crystal fashion I started projects at 9pm the night before. I stumbled upon them on Pinterest and had to do it! It was worth it, though.

Saturday we woke up and continued the party prepping. Before we left I asked Mason if I could get some photos of him. And of course, this is what I got....

I love this silly boy something fierce. My sweet friend Amanda came into town to visit her family and was able to come to Mason's party. She arrived and we loaded up and headed into town. Mason's party {which I will be posting about separately} went really well. It was one of the less stressful parties I think I ever planned.



After the party we went back home and had some yummy burgers and the kids played on Mason's new Green Machine {gift from my parents}, had nerf gun wars and jumped on the trampoline. It was a good evening!















Sunday I got up and did my usual early morning routine of grocery shopping & grabbing donuts. Then we were off to church. I love when holidays fall on church days!! There is something so special about sitting on a pew with your loved ones. What a gift! And to be able to be in the house of the Lord with some of my favorite mamas on Mother's Day was such a blessing as well. Also, one of our sweet friends was in town {she's a flight attendant and stationed elsewhere} and joined the worship team in leading praise and worship. What a treat that we weren't expecting at all. Nathan and I agreed that we could listen to her sing for hours. Amazing voice! And, she sang one of my favorite songs {that I have had on repeat lately} - Ever Be by Bethel. After service they handed out carnations and a devotional to all of the mamas. And Mason made me a sweet card in children's church.
 


After church we went to my aunts house to celebrate all the mamas on that side of the family. We did a sandwich type potluck and it was delicious. We visited a while and then headed to Nate's parents to visit with his mom. We are so blessed with so many amazing women in our lives! It was a great day of celebrating them.



How was your weekend? I hope you all had an amazing one and a Happy Mother's Day!

  4. I love Mason's freckles. Something about them makes me think he will always be a baby even though I know he is growing and growing. Happy Mother's Day! I am so glad you spent this week doing what you love -- celebrating love and family!

  6. Sounds wonderful! Glad you could do both Mason's birthday and Mother's Day all in one weekend! We have a friend who's birthday was Sunday and she said not only is Mother's Day usually a conflict, but communions too!
