Happy Mother's Day!



Happy Mother's Day! This is guest blogger: Daddy-O, brought in on special assignment. That's code for "Paula's taking a nap"! When we last saw her, she had some chocolate, a Diet Coke, earplugs, and her new Ipad II! I think we also heard a distinctive "click" of the lock when her bedroom door closed!
Being the youngest of five children myself, I know now how my parents felt when they were chasing me around when I was 3 and full of energy! (code for naughty) However, they were 43 when I was Nole's age while Paula is within 3 1/2 years of being 50! (So am I, but this a tribute to Paula on Mother's Day, it's not always about me!)
Behold the latest 3 years of Mother's Day pictures for our growing family: our 3 oldest in 2009. Then a family with 4 kiddos in 2010. Now today's shot, sakes alive, we too are a family with 5! (children that is) What next!?!?!?!
"Paula, please come out sometime! There's alot of little people out here, and none of them want to take a nap!" (except for a weary guest blogger)
We love you Momma! Enjoy your special day!


  1. I wanted to wear the same outfit three years in a row for the sake of these pictures but I couldn't find my denim jacket this morning... :)
    Well happy mother's day, mom!

  2. Cute pictures!!!! Great guest blogger, Kevin!
    I like the dress with either jacket or sweater! :-)
    Can't wait to see you all!
