Mother’s Day Photos Because With 5 Boys, Every Day is Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

What is life really like in a house of five boys?

It can be a lot of work, but it’s a LOT of fun too – This is just part of why I wouldn’t trade my life for anything!

Sonogram Picture - Baby waving hello

Conception = purpose – From the beginning, each child has a purpose ~ This is my son.

Unplanned pregnancy - newborn photo

Conception = possibility!  A day old – This little one was specially planned!

Pride in serving God through altar serving

Family = teaching. Children to serve the Lord.

Boys in the car

Love looking back to these faces!

I would do anything for..."my Mom"

Other kids wrote things like pizza and x-box; Noah came up with this on his own.

A note from George "Left food out in case you guys wanted some"

When I work late and everyone is asleep before I get home, I find little surprises. So thoughtful…

five boys with haircuts

In age order – Troy, Matt, George, Noah, Kaleb – after haircuts – Kaleb’s 1st! (Summer 2013)

Kaleb covered in marker.

Yep, it was permanent – His face says it all!

"Hey Mom. I have mint chocolate chip ice cream I have been saving since Wednesday so to celebrate the end of classes so enjoy (if you in the can, if not, you can have it tomorrow"

George saved his ice cream for two days so I could celebrate the ending of my late night class!

This is one of my favorites – Christmas tree chopping, December 2012 (I think!)

Me sitting on Kaleb

I’ll be sitting at the gun club every Monday night for the next 14 years – oy vey!

Noah - Hands fodled as he is made an altar server for the first time.

Don’t let the angelic look fool you – Noah both tests me and provides me with Hope! 😉
