Mother's Day

It's Mother's Day, so I decided I could demand family pictures. We just went out back after church, so it's nothing special. But, I am happy to have taken them.

Spencer was hilarious! He begged to have his picture taken. He jumped up on the chair. I asked him to fold his arms. He did. But once I got behind the camera, he put his hand up to his cheek and gave me this pose. Such a good model.

Eliza does not enjoy pictures half as much as Spencer. She kept saying, "Can this please be the last one, Mom?" Poor girl.

Today was just a very special day. I am so glad to be a mother. I am grateful for my mother. She is such a good example of a woman of truth & righteousness. I am grateful that she taught me well.

I am also grateful for Will's mother, that she taught him so well. Will had a pretty busy day today. He sang with a few other guys during sacrament meeting, and then gave a talk about the divinity of motherhood. He made dinner, and really made my day. He is a wonderful husband & father.

Good, you deserve a good day to enjoy life : )
Your photos are very cute. I'm just remembering "mini-world" days--the pink is very cute on those little ones!
