Mother's Day 2011

Mother's Day in the US is in May, and in March in England-where my parents live. For Mother's Day this year for my Mom, we sent her a new pendant for this magnetic exchangeable necklace and a knitted wrap in a pretty cornflower blue color that I always love seeing on my Mom and I called to wish her a Happy Mother's Day.

 For US Mother's Day, Todd wanted to have his family over. This is the cake I ordered from a good friend, Lisa that I used to work with. Recently, Lisa started a baking business with a friend and they make some of the most beautiful creations.

We wanted a Ladybug to celebrate Tatum and China. We found out April 25th that our adoption agency locked a file for us. The following week, we received our LOI and we were over the moon with joy. I called my parents to tell them first, and sent a Fed-Ex package with a letter describing Tatum and her Special Needs and the few pictures we have of her. We wanted Mom and Dad to be the first to see their new Grand-daughter!

 Todd's Parents after we broke the news to them.

 Todd's sister April, Mom Elliott and Mom-Mom Ross. Tatum will be Mom-Mom's 10th Great-Grandchild.

Then, Todd surprised me with a beautiful necklace from Etsy with our daughter's name and date of birth as well as a birthstone pearl. As soon as we can share that information, I will happily post a close up of the necklace!!

It was a fun week of telling our families and our friends.
