It's easy to be grateful for Grammy and Gramma, two strong, faith-filled moms who continue to model Christ's love to us through their own trials and ours.
It's easy for me to be grateful that God has blessed me with four astounding kiddos - granted, the feeling of gratitude wains with temper tantrums and midnight wakeups and screaming matches, but the truth of that gratitude never leaves.
Beside the complicated emotions that arise each Mother's Day, the rest of the day was sheer and simple fun. Pancakes courtesy of Sam, whipped cream by Ben, grilled cheese sandwiches from Sam again, fabulous dinner and the first mojitos of the season by Daddy and super-thoughtful presents from all!
And now it's time to hit the hay - we get to leave the house tomorrow morning at 5 am for WanYing's surgery. Wowsers!
|Sash and Mommy show off our pretty toes|
|Sam's classic croquet pose...|
|WanYing decides that we're all being silly hitting balls around the yard and opts to eat her Mini Wheats in the comfort of her convertable|
|Eventually WanYing did decide to get in on the game|
|Sasha was not a huge fan of Daddy "The Stinger" tagging her out|
|And just in case you think that we always take good photos (not that I think you're that deluded) here's one for the album!|
Happy Mother's Day!
