Mother's Day festivities started on Friday when my son got home from school. He ran off the bus with a personally decorated cake from Publix for me. I love my son.
And look, they even had coupons for this couponing mommy on the back of the card!
He wanted a piece right from the middle, so that's what we did.
I love these pictures and will cherish them forever. I think this needs to be an annual Mother's Day event from now on. The next time we go see my in-laws in Rhode Island (which will be after my sweet niece arrives), we need to get some pictures, too.
A special thank you to my wonderful hubby (I know you're reading this) who took his time to edit these photos. I'm so glad I have a photo editing/web designing/web coding/tech savvy husband.
I am truly blessed with the best mom and mother-in-law anyone could ever ask for. It's funny how different they are, though. My mom talks a little louder and is very tough and practical, and my mother-in-law is very soft spoken, sweet, and sentimental. I love them both and am so blessed to have them in my lives. Everything I know, I have learned from my moms.
In Friday's post, I mentioned our weekly prayer nights on Wednesdays and the fact that this past one was an incredibly special one. My husband tries his best to read the Bible with Nathaniel every night before bed and pray with him. They have been in the New Testament for a while now and have been learning about Jesus's life. KB has been talking to Nathaniel about Jesus and who He is to him.
Thaniel accepted Jesus last year during VBS and prayed the prayer with his VBS teacher. After doing that, we explained to him about baptism and asked if he wanted to get baptized. He reluctantly said no. We didn't want to push him into something if he didn't want to do it, so we let it go.
This past week, my husband approached Nathaniel again after all the talks they've had about Jesus, and asked if he wanted to get baptized. Without hesitating, he said, "Yes, Daddy. I want to be baptized."
As a Christian parent, those are some of the most beautiful words you will ever hear. My son wants to proclaim to everyone that he loves Jesus and wants to follow Him! I'm speechless. It's just simply amazing. Thank you, Lord, for calling my son to You.

Because of the weather, we had to baptize him at home in a tupperware. Amazingly, it was the same tupperware that my Grandpa got baptized in when he was sick with cancer.
Born again in Jesus Christ!

I don't think I will ever receive a Mother's Day gift that will top this one.
I hope all you mommies had a special Mother's Day, as well. I know that you each deserve it!
