This weekend...

was chock-full of a whole lot of random fun"ness":

I woke up to this little gem on Saturday morning:
 It reads: "I am sending a big hug to you mom. I love you. You are the best mom ever"
Am I the luckiest mama live or what?! 
That made my day, lemme tell ya!

My dear friend and neighbor asked me to take some pictures of her family to give to some of their relatives  as Christmas presents. Luckily, her relatives are not aware of the existence of this blog, so I can share a quick peek with you guys.
Meet Jason, Christie and Madison

This is the same peek I shared with her last night. I'm happy to report that she loved it! Which was a HUGE relief considering when she asked me to take their pictures I had the craziest mix of nerves and excitement I've had in a really long time. It's one thing to take my own personal pictures of my family, but when the pressure of pleasing someone else is there, it just instantly changes things. I can't wait to hear what she thinks of the rest...

This weekend gifted with us with some amazing weather, 
which allowed some of us a whole lot of outside playtime,

while others decided to exercise their artistic muscles.

There was also a lot of this going on::
I found a great table for our entryway on Craigslist recently and it's going through a bit of a makeover. I'll post pictures as soon as it's ready and in place.

And we got to watch our neighbor tinker around with his big boy toys:
My kids adore Jason, Christie and Madison. And when Jason is outside playing with his motorcycles or four-wheelers, there is no other place Sam would rather be, than sitting right there watching him.

We got our first taste of Bessie, our new cow (yeah, more on that later):
 And she was DELISH!

So, there you have it...
our weekend in a nutshell. 
Hope yours was as productive, fun and relaxing as ours was.
