Mother's Day

It was my first Mother's Day with all four of my kids! We took lots of pictures to mark the occasion. Logan loves taking pictures! He does a great job at trying to make Mia laugh(and is usually successful) while he is taking pictures of her. I was able to get pictures with each of the kids individually but the battery in the camera died before I was able to get one with all four of them.

The morning started off with Dan stopping by Panera Bread to pick up some bagels and cream cheese for breakfast. He was also sweet enough to bring home an iced green tea for me. The man knows me well! We had a light breakfast because Mia and I were skipping "all things soccer" today and going out to lunch with my mom and grandma. Soccer stops for nothing around here I tell ya, including Mother's Day! We had a nice lunch and afterwards we took "shop till you drop" to a whole new level. After shopping we drug ourselves to the nearest Starbucks for a much needed afternoon pick me up. Dinner was served by my dad and then followed by strawberry filled cake!

I am so blessed to be able to journey through motherhood with my four amazing kids! I love each one of them dearly and love being their mother. I am convinced there is no greater joy in this world than the joy of being their mother!

Mia did shop until she dropped!

Sounds like a wonderful Mother's Day!!

Is Mia from Henan? Are you a CCAI family? I hopped over from Melissa's blog (Over the Moon) and saw that you had HER as a MCC 07 friend.

WE were MCC 07 too (with CCAI) and our little girl is from Henan as well (she is the face on the Henan Kids button!) I LOVE stopping by peoples' blogs and seeing MY baby there :) I also saw you had Sarah (Six at Last) on your site - we are friends in "real life" :)

Anyways, I just wanted to introduce myself - you have a beautiful family. I look forward to coming back!

Ok. I see that you ARE CCAI :) Now, to figure out the New Day link - was Mia part of New Day too?

I feel like I have been under a rock (which I kinda have!) lol!!

Hey Melinda!

So sweet that you put TOF on your MCC!! What timing - God is never late, is He?

I HAVE been eyeing the poppy dip dresses - but this one came from Daleea at....

An adoption Fundraiser, though! I'm a sucker for cuteness AND helping bring home a baby!
