Mother's Day - with the girls!

Hope you had a great Mother's Day weekend!! Holiday weekends are always crazy for us, but as I always say, we would not have it any other way!!!

Nicole came home this weekend so we were able to spend a lot of time with her. Friday night, Mom and Jake, and Nicole and Aaron came over for pizza. Then Saturday, Shane and Jake painted Bree's room while, me, Mom, Nicole and the kids went to lunch and to find Nicole an apartment! (Tara was partying up in LR and then moving, so she did not get to come along). We found Nicole an awesome, really nice place just down the road from us! We are so excited to have her back home again!! She moves back in 2 weeks. Claire can't wait to spend the night at Nicole's "house" just like she does with Tara. Speaking of Tara, she moved this weekend too and she has a fabulous place!! Mom and I are loving all these new "projects" that are going on!!! Shane and Jake finished Bree's room that night and it is absolutely perfect!! I am not going to put any pictures up yet as I want to wait to move further along with the plans, but I will tell you it is the prettiest shade of turquoise!!! It made everything so real to see her room going!

Then Sunday night, about 3am, Owen woke up with what I refer to as "The fever cry". I knew from hearing him, he was sick! I laid down with him and he then proceeded to throw up..then I threw up!! Yes, being pregnant was not a good thing when you are trying to console a puking 2 year old!! So, Shane and I were up with him up and down for the rest of the night. I finally got a couple hours of sleep in and was able to take Claire to church and our Mother's Day lunch with both families. Shane stayed home with a sick O, that was sooooo upset that he could not go. He is better today, but still not 100%. We feel so bad for him as he kind of paces around, unsure if he wants to lay down or play =(.

Just me and Claire, had a great lunch with the family yesterday. Then we went to the mall with the girls and then we went to get pedicures!! That night we spent with my Mom's side of the family. It was a great day, even though we missed Shane and Owen. Here are a bunch of pictures from our Mother's Day!!

Me and Claire on our way to church...her dress was made by the ever so talented Danna!!
Owen did not quite fully understand he was sick and was furious that he was not going with us...he knows the picture drill and did not understand why he was being left out =(. So here they both are on Mother's Day morning.We went to Shogun for lunch and Claire DID NOT like the Hibachi grill, specifically the fire. She hid under the table until she knew they were done =)...Claire with Tara and Nicole
