Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! My day started with coffee & the newspaper in bed! Grace bounded in a little later and started a pillow fight. After getting ready for church, Kevin snapped a picture of me with all FOUR kids.

(See me holding Bella's picture)

Samuel and Grace made me very cute booklets in school to give me on Mother's Day. I asked Elizabeth to write me a poem or essay. She started looking for a Bible verse and found this one in The Message:

"Anyone who robs father and mother and says, "So, what's wrong with that?" is worse than a pirate." Proverbs 28:24 We both had a hardy laugh over that one! (Ahoy there, matey!)

After church, our family and our friends Mike & Cindy went to Wendy's for lunch. We had a fun time actually "sitting down" in a restaurant instead of just driving through--who cares that it was a fast food stop!

Now I am off for my Mother's Day afternoon nap. I'll update about the rest of the day later.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...... I LOVE Mother's Day......

Hi, I'm back and rested! (Now I probably won't be able to fall asleep tonight, but, oh well, I got a great nap during a thunderstorm...I just snuggled in, ahhhhhhhh!)

My parents came over and Kevin grilled steaks for the guys and chicken for the girls. How Yummy! Then, the girls went for a power walk.

What a great day! Thanks, Kevin and kids for making it such a nice day! Love, Mom
