Happy Mother's Day!

My day is off to a wonderful start so far. Elise slept in until after 9:00 this morning, which is VERY rare! She must have known it was my special day. Jamie got me Starbucks and we've been relaxing all morning. My parents and in-laws are coming over this afternoon for desserts and coffee/tea. We thought it would be nice to do that instead of a big meal so that none of the mommies have to cook today. The guys will get us some take-out at mealtime. Plus, wouldn't we all rather eat dessert anyway!? Mom has some chocolate covered strawberries, and I ordered some of our favorite shortbread cookies from The Cake Lady. I think I may pick up one more thing - maybe a chocolate pie or cheesecake. YUM!

Jamie got gift certificates for my mom and I to have a spa day together. He and my dad have volunteered to keep Elise for a day while we go enjoy ourselves. What an awesome gift!

I hope all my mom friends are having a wonderful day too.

And here are all my favorite moms (and one future mommy). This is our four generation photo (me, my mom, my grandmother, and Elise):
