A day in the life...
We started out our morning with coffee, a yummy breakfast that Vance made and
Hazel and I played princesses for a bit...
This boy is so darling, so curious and so full of personality.
He has been yelling a lot, however.
And having some fits.
And wearing his mommy out.
But there are lots of sweet moments too.
A little tea party, Hazel set this up
Oren and the stuffed animals finish up the tea party.

I met Maria at a Vintage Market at the fairgrounds! So fun! Inspiring too. Time with Maria is always good and we saw a lot of cute stuff. I bought a few things. I got a smoothie from the Smoothery too! Carly was there with the smoothie truck making delicious blends!
Our chickens are growing!
This afternoon I hid treasure hunt clues and after dinner these three went on their hunt!
I love spring evenings and the sunset was so pretty!
I LOVE being a mom! It is such a wonderful, important, enjoyable job! It is also so much work and can be hard. Looking to God and enjoying all of the little moments are two ways I get through the days - and not just get through, but enjoy. I also have some AMAZING sisters and girlfriends who ENCOURAGE. I miss my mom so much. I keep thinking of her today. Little memories, sweet memories. I am so thankful for her example and her dedication. Vance and I are both so blessed to have been raised by such dedicated moms. And today I am thankful for my grandmas! Both here and in heaven. I have so many wonderful grandma memories.
I am thankful for my mother in laws too. And for dear friends who are great examples of selfless, forgiving, patient moms. I am excited for tomorrow and to just BE with my FAMILY.
HAPPY MOTHER's DAY to all of you MOMS out there!
