Happy Mother's Day

This is my mother-in-law, Maureen, she is also something wonderful.  She is very supportive to Kris and I and the way we live our lives.  She is so giving, she would give you her shirt off of her back if she had to.  Kris can remember her making goodies, and always giving them away to others.  We are so lucky to have her in our lives, we love her.
My kids were so sweet to me on Mother's Day, they let me sleep in, and this is what I woke up to.  I could here them while they were making breakfast, we can't fight because it is mother's day and we want her to have a good day.  Of course I did have a great day, Kris did everything for me and I didn't have to lift a finger (LOL).  Actually, he did do the dishes all day long, he massaged my feet, the girls played with my hair and they sang to me at church, and for dinner we had steak, potatoes, salad, rolls, and dessert.  Yummy!
Here is a picture with my mom, 4 of my sisters, and 2 sister-in-laws, my mom is absolutely amazing.  I can't fathom how she raised 12 children, especially with all our needs and wants.  She is such a wonderful example of patience, love, sacrifice, patience, I don't ever remember her complaining about how hard her life was, she might have, but I don't remember, she isn't a complainer and is a hard worker.  We all love her so much, she truly is an angel.

Kole's First T-Ball Game, Go Cubs!!

Kole had his very first game tonight!!  He is obsessed with whatever sport he is playing and all day long he has been talking about his game.  He kept on asking me if I wanted the Cubs to win or the Yankees, and I mean he asked me all day long who I wanted to win, so much so that I finally told him the Yankees.  He wanted to wear his uniform to school,  he loves sports!!!  He is also very serious little kid, when it comes to sports, sometimes too serious for his 5 year old body.  He did a great job and after the game I heard him ask Kris if he was proud of him.
