Summer Break has begun

Adison is officially a second grader, where has the time gone? Now I know that all parents say that time passes quickly when you have children, but seriously, I feel as though she was just a baby. WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE???? Okay, enough of the tearful remembrances, I think I need to grab a Kleenex.
(Adison, 7 months)

We kicked off summer break by having a picnic with my friend Jennifer & her kiddos. Her kids are darling & we have pretty much decided that our children have no other option than to be best friends, sorry kids! We had a blast though, we went to two different parks & were gone pretty much all day. I love days like that, the weather was nice & my girls were all in great moods. We pretty much live outside when the weather is nice, it doesn't seem to happen all that often in Kansas.

Then, it rained. I don't mean a little bit, I mean for days on end! So we were stuck in the house except for our run to the grocery store, it was a necessity, we were pretty much out of everything.

Yesterday (Friday) the sun decided to grace us with it's presence, we went to the zoo. It was a good time filled with lots of animals & happy children.

I am excited for summer to continue!

Mother's Day

(Adison Isabella Jane)
I have been blessed to be the mother to three of the most wonderful daughters. Each one of them has changed my life in such a profound and overwhelming way. I am also the mother to six angel babies, those children that I have never held in my arms but have and will always hold in my heart.

(Ainsley Faith Rae)
I am constantly amazed at these darling girls that the God has placed in our lives. Adison, who is just as much tomboy as she is girlie. My first-born who has her "own style," she likes to dress rock & roll. She loves to play in the dirt, climb & jump all while wearing pink. Ainsley aka "Princess." Ask anyone who knows her and they will tell you that she is as girly as they come. She has a need to wear dresses, necklaces and brushes her hair out her face in such a manner that actual princesses are probably jealous. Then we have darling Abby, our little roley poly baby. Our girl who loves nothing more than to be held, talked to and tickled. She is all things sweet and lovable.

I am so very honored that Kirk & I were chosen to be their parents, that we were all decided as being the perfect fit. Thank you God for this honor! It is on this Mother's Day though, that I have to give credit to their Daddy, Kirk is such an amazing father & husband. He is the type of man that I pray that my daughters' can find in their future husband. Thanks to him, I get to be a mother to our gaggle of girls. Life is precious and amazing, I am honored to be called Mommy.

To my sweet Adison

My sweet Adison, I love you my girl! You make my life so full of laughter, fun and adventure. You have a heart of gold and a boldness for God. You know what you like and don't like, you are not afraid to say what is on your mind. You made me a mommy and we are going on this journey together. I love you my sweet pea! Love, Mommy
