Happy Mother's Day

When I think on Mother's Day, I think about a few things. I think about the wonderful mother that I have been blessed with. Mom, you have taught me so much and for that I am so thankful. I think about the wonderful mother-in-law, grandmothers, and other mommies in my life who have had such an impact in my life. But most of all on mother's day, I think about how God committed Jack and Madi to Jason and me to care for, to educate, to love, to instruct, to guide, to discipline, all to raise them up to be children of God. It is not always the easiest job, but it is the one I want. And each day, I pray that God will guide me and instruct me how to raise my children to bring honor and glory to Him.

Jack and me at the mother's day brunch that Jack's pre-school hosted. It was so sweet. The children performed a little song for us and then gave us some gifts they made. Jack gave me a spoon full of kisses (one of my favorite candies), a pot holder with his hand print on it (cutest thing ever!) and a cookbook full of recipes provided by the children of the pre-school. Here are Jackson's recipes:

She takes it out of the freezer and cooks it in the oven for 8 hours.

Roll them up in a ball and cook them in the oven for 30 years. Eat them with noodles.

How stinkin cute is that!?!

Below is a video of Jack's pre-school performing a little song. Of course the song was almost over by the time my camera started recording it, but I think you can get the idea =). Enjoy the video...and remember...pause the music player at the bottom before playing the video.

Happy Mother's day!
