Early Mother's Day

Yesterday I invited my family for an early Mother's Day dinner.  Since it was also Cinco De Mayo I decided to serve tacos's.  We also had fruit salad and cookies.  It was a beautiful day.  Some of the kids ate outside. It was very simple and nice.  We got to see Benjamin again.  He looks so good.  Cora and Leah had really wanted to see him but they were both coughing so stayed away.  Levi, Colton, and Blake had a great time playing together.  Everything they got out they put away then they went on to something new.  Except for tables we put away after my house was clean when everyone left.
I have a fabulous mom and am very proud to be her daughter.  I am thankful for the values and lessons that my parents taught me and I am trying to teach my family the same way.  I enjoy being with my family and think that is a great compliment to the way that we were raised.  Thank you mom for being mine.


  1. Glad you had such a nice day with your family. Too bad your girls were sick so they couldn't snuggle their new cousin. We were happy to see Dave on Saturday at mom's. Love your family!

  2. You are so right! You have a wonderful family and your Mom and Dad raised a fantastic daughter that I get to call my daughter also. Dave is so blessed to have you in his life. I admire the way you and Dave are raising your family. I love you all so much. I can't wait until I can look out my window and see your house.
