Mother's Day 2013

When your parents
have 7 kids,
27 grandchildren
and 1 great grandchild
it's pretty awesome
when you get them
all to yourselves
on a holiday.  

They were with us for
Mother's Day this year.

The weather was
beautiful so we spent
most of the day


Lexi drew a Groucho
Marx mustache on herself
with sidewalk chalk.

 Tif decided she and 
Lila needed them too.

The little girls gave me flowers,
Tif bought me a gift card,
Nick cooked an awesome
breakfast and dinner.   
It was a great day. 

I am one thankful mama.   

Coming soon:
a post about
teaching our kids
to be kind.
Until then...
