It was an awful rainy day, so I didn't get a single picture of me and my kids. That's disappointing now that I realize it but I do have this one from our photo shoot a few weeks ago.
I also got several very nice Mother's Day gifts which I love. Kylie is too little to know much yet, but I absolutely adore Jenna's home made gifts...
|This is me. Jenna drew it in art and they made it into a pin. The 3 hearts represent her, Kylie and Steve. I love the detail.|
|Speaking of detail....look at the bricks in the turret. Something else she made. Jenna really is pretty artistic...|
|And then this is the gift from Steve. When I got pregnant with Jenna, I got a diamond necklace with two hearts. Now my heart has expanded to three!|
Mother's day is typically a bit bittersweet for me since I lost my mother and mother in law. I thought I might post a few pics of my mom since we got a new scanner...
|This was right before they went to some type of Christmas program. I think around 1986 or so? One of the best pictures of my mom. They rarely went out, so this was a treat.|
|I can't remember where this picture was found, but I love the pictures of my mom when she was young. There aren't many of them since her parents died when she was young. I am guessing she's about 6 in this picture.|
So to all of you out there...mothers, stepmoms, grandmoms, surrogate moms, adoptive moms, belly moms, single moms and those who are moms in waiting...my hat is off to you. The job is hard and so many times thankless...but OH SO WORTH IT.
