Mother's Day 2007

Happy Mother's Day out there to all of you mothers! What a wonderful feeling it is to be a Mom. Words cannot honestly describe what it feels like. What an awesome responsibility God has given me by bringing these 3 precious children into my life. We had a wonderful day. Amazing what you can acomplish before 8am ... 3 babies fed and bathed and down for their first nap of the day. Dad and I even had time to sit outside and have a 15 minute cup of coffee! Throw in an hour of house cleaning, Mom and Dad finishing getting themselves ready for church, waking up 3 babies and dressing them all for church ... in the van and out of the garage ... all by 9:30am! Gone are the lazy days where I would sleep in and then lay around on a Saturday reading my book. I look back with a kind of fondness, not sadness ... like how you remember an old friend. And I look forward to the many wonderful adventures Al and I will share with our children!!!

Mommy's new heart-shaped locket (from Dad and babies) to fill with pictures of the babies and Dad!
Hand and feet print molds of Jackson, Addison and William. Dad and Miss Kelly worked really hard to keep Mommy from finding out about this big suprise! Thanks to Miss Kelly and her helpers ... Miss Summer and Miss Beth!
Hand impression of all 3!!
Mommy's very own links to keep forever! I love them just like the babies love theirs!
OK--this isn't from Mother's Day ... but was so cute I had to put it in here and I was quite honestly too lazy to do a separate post! William is already a coffee addict ... not really! I just let him hold the empty glass, but boy oh boy does he want some!

Quenta,
I was so glad to find your blog as a link on Stormy's blog. I loved looking at all the pictures of the babies. They are so precious! You and Al have amazingly adjusted to being parents. I can see where you are so full of joy. I know there have to be hard days as well, but somehow I don't think we would hear you complain. I am so glad things are working out with Kelly. May the Lord just keep blessing you with all you need to care for those precious gifts He has given you.
