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.

I love mother's day and think that it should be once a month:) In that picture, I can't believe how old Stella looks! Her hair has gotten really long too. Her and Kennedy are going to have so much fun together...and get into a lot of trouble together too:)

Nice work Sonya. Does Maureen look at your blog? She will love it if she does. Glad you had a Happy Mother's Day. When are you going to Vegas again?

Sonya, When are your dates for planning on coming up with everyone? Both boys made All Stars and I need to organize my life... I mean my summer around everything. Send me any dates you have. Love you.

Hey sonya, I am not sure if I am going to be able to come.. I am still trying to figure it out. I need to talk to Rachel and Lacy to see what their plans are. I just don't know if I could go for 3 weeks.. I am starting my own business and I am going to be busy but maybe I can fly up there and then drive to Tara's and then fly back I don't know for sure. I hope i can do something.
Talk to you soon

Reading your blog makes ME miss your mom! I can't believe they finally left LG. It is nice cause I get to see your parents from time to time when I'm over in Henderson for a Bevell get-together. She really is a great lady.
