Beach trip

I'm finally editing some of our beach trip a few weeks back... LOVE these photos of my chickens in their matching Show Hope "family rocks" tees and tutus!

I absolutely love Easter... and having children makes the day even more special. Mae really knows why we celebrate this day. She has such a sweet way of telling the story of how much God loves us all. She is full of questions about sin, angels and the holy spirit. It is amazing to watch her come to understand all these concepts and challenging to explain them to a five year old!


They love getting their basket and this year I specifically tried to eliminate the little items that get lost under the couch and get them Christian books, a devotional book for Mae and a Boz DVD (if you don't know about Boz, he is phenomenal!! LOOK IT UP)
 We had a picnic and then an Easter egg hunt.

Mae pointed out all the eggs to Ian and Jovie instead of rushing around to get them for herself. She is such an awesome big sister.

 Their eggs were filled with yummy jelly beans.

 This may be my favorite picture of them.
I love these three little ones with all of my heart!

  My Nanny is deeply loved by my children and I am so fortunate that she is a part of their lives. 

It was such a fun time with all these people that I love so dearly! We have the greatest family (:

Mae's Famiversary

Saturday was the anniversary of a special day... fours year ago I was given the great honor of becoming a mother. It is a hard job, as you know, but one that I just can not imagine not having. I really didn't have a clue how much this one day could totally change our lives. Being a mother has taught me more of who I am as a person, the good and the bad. I have had to be stronger than I ever knew I could be, I've had to push out selfishness, to make room for sacrifice, and I daily wear my heart on my sleeve. My heart surges with love for my three children—it's powerful. I love them with every fiber of my being... I still can't believe we get to be parents of these treasures.

 So on Saturday, all I could think about is the day we first met our Mae, and how truly blessed we are to know her as our own. She is so full of joy, is incredibly creative, funny as all get out, and is a leader of all the silly games that go on in our house. I am so excited to be on the front row to her life story. God writes the most beautiful stories.

 It is our family's tradition to send off a lantern on their "gotcha day" as it's called (we like to call it a famiversary). It was an absolutely a gorgeous evening to celebrate.
