My 3 Greatest Joys!

I'm so grateful for Mother's Day and the opportunity it gives me to reflect on just how blessed I am. There was a time that we were worried that we'd never be able to have children, but we've been blessed 3 times now and they continue to bless our lives everyday.
God is so good to me and he gives me forgiveness and new chances all the time to improve on being a mother. I'm so grateful for my Father in Heaven for blessing me with children and an awesome husband to share the blessing with. Family truly is the whole purpose to life & I love mine more than words can say!!
Nothing like waking up to 3 scraggly kids with beautiful smiles on their faces, so excited to give me gifts!
These are my favorite kinds of gifts--the ones they make me.
Ethan made this cool card and flower for me at school.

Kalin decorated this cute bag and made this sweet bracelet for me.

Lexi make this adorable hand print at pre-school.

And the kids made these at church today. I just love when they write me cute little notes! It makes my heart melt.

Oh, and they also know what I love sooooo much--chocolate. I think they've got it ingrained in their heads now, so much so, that it's the first thing they go for to buy me. Gotta love dark chocolate!!!!!

Happy Mothers Day! Looks like you had a good one! Brooke peed on the bathroom floor for me today for the first time when I was getting her bath ready. It was sweet ;) So grateful for the joys these little ones bring to our lives!

It's true that your appreciation grows through trials. Our start at a family was not quite as intense as yours but it's true that I am more grateful for them now that I had a small taste of what it would be like if I couldn't have them.
So do you keep all the gifts that they make you and if you do, where?
your such a great mom and inspiration to me too. Hope you had a great day!

Those are the best gifts because they come from the heart. Oh and the dark chocolate...I'm with you there. That's what my honey got me too!
