My Wonderful Mother's Day!


I always look forward to the cute gifts I get each mother's day from the kids.  This year was especially great.  Sydney wrote me a beautiful letter, Zach made me a calendar with poems that he wrote for each month, Kyle made me a great magnet/clip holder for the fridge so I can clip papers and such to it, it was also adorned with his adorable picture.  Chloe got me anything and everything she could find, such as purses, jewelry, sleeping beauty dress and shoes (she tried to get me to wear them to church) and colored pictures.  Chris gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers.  We sat in our big bed all morning eating Crispy Cream donuts and milk and playing games until it was time to get ready for church.  After church we went to my mom's and enjoyed a yummy dinner and mom gave each of the girls a cute beach bag and a cute platter.  I'm so grateful to be a mom, this is all I've wanted to be.  I truly find no greater joy than to be their mother and know that I can be with them forever.  They teach me so much and are great examples to me.  They make me laugh and cry and yes want to scream sometimes.  I love you Sydney, Zach, Kyle and Chloe and Chris thanks for a wonderful mothers day.
