Happy Mother's Day!

Wishing you all a happy Mother's Day! Today, our pastor talked about how God picked out the mother that He wanted you to have. (Ava was sleeping blissfully in my arms during the sermon--how fitting.) Pastor urged us to honor the mother that God gave us. So I'd like to wish a Happy Mother's Day to my own mother, Rosalyn, who continues to give her time, love, and laughter to our family; and who inspires me to be a better mom and wife. I couldn't do all this without you, Mom! :-)

Below you will find a video showing what Tom bought me for Mother's Day. Other mothers get flowers, chocolates, and jewelry for Mother's Day. Me....I get a Mother's Day card that plays the Chicken Dance. However, before you laugh at me and shake your head in pity at Tom, who you might think would be in the doghouse, let me explain: Years ago, Tom asked me to marry him, and said he would follow through on one, iron-clad, not-up-for-negotiation condition: That I do the Chicken Dance with him at our wedding. I have a photo from our wedding reception, I'll have to scan it and post it. (The things we do for love....)

We got a few nice family photos before church this morning.
I am thankful we got ready early to do this before church, because the weather
turned very chilly and rainy soon after.
The best Mother's Day gift one could ever recieve. :*)

She can be quite serious at times.
