My Angel Mother
I am overcome with the compassion, love, and care that is rendered by my sweet mother! Knowing I was having a hard time coping with the loneliness and sleepless nights, she drove down after spending the night at my sister's house babysitting so they could go out for my bro-in-law's b-day, and surprised me at my front door Friday night! She was here to help take care of my family so I could have some much-needed rest and greatly-desired recreation. Isn't she wonderful? THEN she drove down to my other sister's house to help HER for a day! And all with a broken thumb!!!
I feel so blessed and happy to have her for a mother!
I LOVE YOU MOM!
Here are some shots of the fun weekend! Lily LOVED the snow...the snowman, eating the stuff, sledding all by herself, crawling like a cat in snow up to her cat-chin, making snow angels, and hot chocolate afterwards! We were determined to have fun, so despite the fact that she fell asleep on the three-minute drive, we woke her and had a blast anyway!
Lily is also loving dress-ups more and more every day, dancing on her daddy's feet, and helping do her own nails while sticking q-tips in-between her toes!!
Avery HATES to be on her tummy and can't crawl an inch yet, but she LOVES to stand holding on to furniture! What a big girl! Ryan loves to put her on Lily's bike and blow in her face so that the pictures look like she is cruising along, full-throttle. :-)
These kids are too fun!
