god gave me you

 my oldest and youngest babies :)
 and this little cutie patootie I think he has started praying for help! he keeps folding his precious little hands, and with all the crazieness in our house, he does this a lot. What a sweetheart. I would pray too if I were him.
And I had to get a pic of his eyelashes, they keep growing and growing, I don't know why its the boys that seem to get the good lashes.
 jason is such an awesome big brother, he loves to hold little zan man.
 Abby got to go to a birthday party the other day, she had such a fun time. It has been  a bit difficult letting her go to all the parites that she gets invited to since she can't eat sugar, but this friend's mom called me and we worked out some treats that abby was able to eat that weren't different from the other kids, and she had such a fun time!
 Yesterday when mothers day rolled around the song "god gave me you" came to mind. I feel so lucky that I am doing exactly what I want to be doing. I have always wanted to be a mom. from the time I was a little girl, I always wanted to grow up to be a mom. It is all I ever wanted, and I have been able to to it 6 times over. Ithought we were done having kids after alli, I was a little sad, but thought our family was complete, then Jason surprised us 6 years later, making us so happy! Then only 3 1/2 years later we were able to adopt abby I had always wanted to adopt a child, I just never thought I would have an opportunity. This one came out of the blue, adding #5 to our family. A couple of years later, big surprise #6 came to our lives rounding out our family making it totally perfect. Being a mom makes me so happy. It is who I am. I am so blessed to have the family that God has blessed me with. (and yes the lotion in the above picture is stress relief lotion, lol)
 and after almost 17 years of asking for it, brian listened, I finally got a stove top grill!!! yea for presents!!
and alli got me some way cute earrings and a ring watch, I got pretty spoiled. It was fun. loved my day. We also got some family pics done saturday, and I can't wait to get them back and post them. family pics are always crazy, but I think they went pretty good. and this time I won't have any issues with my family pics like I did  last time if any of you remember what happened we got our pics taken then the lady that took them just up and dissapeared, then weeks later when I found her, she only gave me a couple of pictures, it was crazy, but this time, it will all work out great!! I am so excited :) so happy mothers day to all you awesome moms out there!

I'm so glad you had a great Mother's Day! And I love that picture of Zander with his hands clasped-it makes me want to kiss his sweet little nose. You know how I love baby noses!

Love you guys,
