Best Mother's Day Gift Ever!

This year Tori's Birthday fell on Mother's Day. Sharing Mother's Day with Tori's Birthday this year has made it a little bit more special for me. Above all this Mother's Day I am thankful that I have the opportunity to be a Mom. I know I have a long way to go before I am the kind of Mother that I hope to someday be but I am so thankful to my children who have taught me so much about love and life. I am also thankful for all the Mother's in my life who have influenced me and have set such great examples for me in my life. I hope you all have wonderful Mother's Day!
Back to Tori's Birthday.
It is hard to believe that my little girl is already 3! Tori is such a sweet girl and I love being her Mom. She is always reminding all of us how much she loves us. She is calm, content, and happy (most of the time) and I can honestly say she never really went through a terrible two's stage (though maybe that means we are in for it now that she is 3). She is so smart and so beautiful and such a great sister to Landon and Ella. Happy Birthday Tori, I love you!!

Yesterday I took Tori out to celebrate her birthday. These last two pictures are of Tori enjoying her birthday sundae from Applebee's. That thing was huge!!

You would think that Applebee's would have a Birthday Sundae more her size, she is gonna have nightmares about that one. She is beautiful by the way!

What beautiful children you have! And they are blessed to have a beautiful, talented mom! Are you and Maggie due at the same time? She is around June 20. Two baby boys coming!
