mother's day

Mother's Day. One of my most favorite days of the year! Here are the amazing kids that make me such a happy and very blessed mom.

We sold our Suburban on Wednesday and won't be getting our new van until tomorrow. Matt borrowed our church van so he could take some teens to a CYIA pre-training yesterday and the church let us keep it over the weekend so we could all get to church. (Brianna was thrilled! -can you hear the sarcasm?)

How is he still so handsome after all these years? I guess I'm pretty lucky :)

By now you can tell I am NOT good at taking pictures of myself!

SO......Micah gave me the best Mother's Day gift. He smiled at me for the first time! I was holding him and looked down at him and he was grinning from ear to ear. Matt and the kids all crowded around and Cam took this pic with his phone. What a sweet time.

I LOVE being a mother!

What a great post! I'm sure Brianna was touched that the church van could be in the background of her photo with you. :) What a blessing for Micah to give his first smile on Mother's Day. HOw's his tummy?
