Happy Mother's Day!

This is it, ladies! This is what it's all about. I'm so thankful today, not only for my own mother, who raised me part of our lives as a single working mom, but also for the awesome privilege it is to even be a mother myself. There are times where I feel like a total failure as a mom and then there are those days that I see something that my kids have done and I think, "OK, they have learned something." This song truly speaks to me about not only what I want to leave for my children, but for everyone that knows me ... a legacy. God help me to be all that You desire and have planned for me to be.

"Legacy" by Nichole Nordeman

Here's my sweeties making homemade biscuits ...

Oh, yeah ... this was K Belle's idea of "helping" with the biscuits. Notice the remote in hand and she's in one of her crazy "sitting" positions. Does anyone else's kids contort their bodies when they are sitting and watching TV? This position is mild compared to most.
Hope all you wonderful ladies have a fantastic Mother's Day! Hey .... get off the computer ... it's Mother's Day ... take a load off and relax, enjoy your babies!

Happy Mom's Day! Your man...he looks so "French"! Aren't they attractive when they're being domestic? *L* Your K Belle is like my Sissy...I just hate it when she does that! I feel like I can't relax just watching her. They look like they're about to fall off so they're holding themselves up like that. How that can feel comfy I know not.
