Mother's Day Gifts

The Big Dawg is the sweetest, sweetest, sweetest!!! For my first Mother's day he made me this adorable shadow box picture. It is a UGA owl, a BYU owl, and a baby owl with a piece from each of our wings.
It just warms my heart every time I look at it!
He came up with the idea from this series of children's books by Kate Toms. They are nursery rhyme fabric based pictures. It's hard to describe if you haven't seen them check them out here.
They are so cute and creative, we really love the big pages for reading to Little Monkey.
My parents and The Big Dawg also gave me two necklaces from It's funny how my mom just knows what I'll like! I had my eyes on a Georgia state necklace for a while, and somehow she just knew! She gave it to me and said "because you're the best momma in Georgia!" 
So sweet. 
The necklace with Little Monkey's sleeping face is priceless!! I love it more than words can say! It will help immensely when I start back to work this coming Sunday, I've already cried several times this week about going back. He'll  always always always be around my neck and in my heart. 
We do what we have to in order to provide health insurance and a life for our family, this is the mantra I keep repeating to myself. 
Today is The Big Dawg's 30th birthday!!! 
Happy Birthday Love!
