"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Happy Mother's Day

I have to be the most blessed mom on earth! Don't even try to argue with me...it's a waste of your time!

We've had some fun this weekend with my family celebrating Mother's Day and just being together.

We also were able to see Blake's side of the family earlier in the week and caught these precious pictures. I act as if the matching outfits weren't planned out! Aren't they adorable?

This is Gigi (below) and she is hardly ever captured on film because she's always chasing the kiddos and entertaining them. But I had to include this today because it's Mother's Day and WHOA has this Mama changed my life. I never thought I could love another mother and learn as much from her as I have. And I know I am blessed. I have heard plenty of MIL horror stories, so I don't take her for granted... I could write a book on Gigi, and should at least dedicate a post to her. I pray that I will one day be just like her when the boys get married.
And if you've ever met my mom, you'll wonder why I was blessed twice over. I truly have two incredible Christ-like women leading me in this journey of motherhood. So today, I thank the moms that have made me a better mom by example, prayer and encouragement.

Here are some cute pictures from Mothers Day!
Miss Priss showing off her cruising and her sassy outfit!

Mr. Smiles himself. This is Cooper's real smile!

Cooper trying oh-so hard to smile and be cool at the same time! He cracks me up!

The grand kids on my side of the family. There are 10 now, you have to look close or you'll miss little Luke! Notice that my boys are thrilled to be taking another picture! Get this, 8 of these kiddos are 5 and under! We had to set them up in front of the TV just to get them all looking in the same direction! Ha!
And a precious video from my little guy...he sure knows how to melt my heart!
