Mother's Day Update

Happy belated Mother's Day to everyone out there. What a crazy thing to be a mom huh? I mean I have never had a job that one day made me want to stand and bang my head on the wall till' I knocked myself out. And then the next day thought to myself,"wow I could so do this 5 more times over!" I love it though! I love the homemade cards and attempt at making me breakfast. I love that I can measure my three year olds height by the hand prints on my sliding door. I love the Lego creations and the pouty "I want my way!" faces. I love that when my husband is at his wits end God gives me peace and patience and vise versa. I love that raising children assures that I will never stray far from my Lord and his guidence. I love that temper tantrums and coloring on the walls is only for a season.
I caught Morgan in deep thought. Today as she was running out the door for school she yelled over her shoulder,"Mommy, would you pray for me today?"
Always my sweet. Isn't she beautiful!
This sums up my sweet Ryanne. Full of life, care free and deliberate at her attmept to make me laugh. She is full of dirty sticky kisses and never short on compliments to me. She told me yesterday,"Mommy, since your my bestestest mommy to me ever I want you to have the bestestest mothers day ever ok?"
I did. Thank you Ryanne.

Mother's Day 2008
Ok, can I just say that my husband rocks! I mean seriously like 2 weeks ago I drug him through DSW in route to buy my mom a pair of flip flops for her b-day and I pointed out these flip flops that I LOVED! Yes I know love is a strong word but since I try to be honest in my posts I dont want to mislead you. I LOVE FLIP FLOPS! My family teases me because I pretty much wear them year round. When it snows I will throw on shoes to go out but off they come the minute I am inside. Dan says my feet will be like 12" wide when I am old because they are never in "shoes". I'm good with that. I love every color, every style, etc. I don't like fancy jewelry or really expensive house things or anything like that. I am happy camping in the dirt for vacations but I must say getting flip flops is soooo fun! So look what the girls got me for mother's day.....................Whew-hew!! Aren't they cute! Thanks for paying attention honey! ;)
After church yesterday we came home and my dear friend, sister in Christ and now neighbor Marianne came over with her family and her parents and Dan BBQ for all of us. It was beautiful outside and the food was amazing! We ate chocolate covered strawberries, had good conversation and just enjoeyd all of our kids running around. Thank you Dan, Morgan & Ryanne for not only making me fell loved on Mother's day but everyday!

Your flip flops are adorable. It helps too that you have INCREDIBLY perfect legs to go with them!

Glad you had a wonderful day! I loved chatting with you on the phone.
