Mother's Day...


I am SO thankful they call me "MOM."

They are my pride and joy. They make me a better me.

My little boy is growing up. He had his sport's physical yesterday and they measured him at five foot three. They same as me!!! I think he has grown a foot since Christmas.

He is a cutie. He spent the night with a friend, but came home before church. He brought me three roses. I LOVE my little man. He can be ALL boy at times, but then I love it that he still talks to me and we have our cuddle moments.

Kayla is and always will be my baby doll. We have such a special relationship. It has and still is a hard journey raising a young teenage girl and all the mood swings and frustrations of junior high that go with it. Every day brings new challenges and even some heartbreak. However, I am so proud of the strength I see in her. She is one talented, smart compassionate girl who sees the world in a special way. I know God has GREAT plans for her. I am honor that He saw fit to give her to me to raise.

She was the first one to call me "mama."

My hubby. My anchor in a crazy world. I thank God everyday for him. He is a GREAT father, hubby and man of God. Working everyday in the real world, I realize just how blessed I am. He is the best friend a gal could have.

I received roses, a card and I picked out a new pair of shoes for Mother's Day. We went to church, out to eat with my in-laws for lunch, I took a much needed THREE hour nap and I went to see a movie with my family.

It was a BEAUTIFUL day!

You certainly had a lovely day to celebrate Mothers Day, and I can see why you are so proud of your two children. They are both beautiful. Having been through the teenage years with two daughters, I know exactly what you mean about mood swings etc., but they are now such loving, caring girls with children of their own!

Love the pictures! I am so glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day! I was asking my friend the other day if it was strange now that she has to look up to her son, and she said it definitely is! LOL! Madison is almost 11 and she is already 5 feet tall, so I'm sure she will surpass my 5'4" pretty soon!

You have a beautiful family and it sounds like your day was just as beautiful. Happy Mother's day a little late :)

I had a long nap as well! I didn't want to wake up. We went out to lunch after church... Mexican. I've been promised a bike so that I can go for rides with my daughter, but no one was willing to pick me out one--to afraid I wouldn't like it. I look forward to "growing" alongside my daughter and seeing our relationship develop in coming years. Right now (at almost 9), she's about to wear me out! But I'm so glad I have a pink amidst the blue!

have a great week~elaine
