Finding smiles

It wasn't hard yesterday to be smiling(its impossible when you have 3 beautiful girls to be with!). I spent some time yesterday outside with them while they ran around their Hopsplash in the backyard. Joey had to go to a YM thing, so I had some fun mommy-daughter time with them.



This series of pictures is the best...

Cali thinks she is sneaky as she goes to lick a piece of grass off her hand

Now realizing she shouldn't have put that in her mouth as she starts to gag:) She does this on a regular basis with a lot of things! She still likes to taste test just about everything. I have to keep a close eye on this girl! (Also, I did not know when I was taking these pictures what she was doing. I was just trying to get her to smile for a picture and was snapping shots. Just wanted to make it clear that I am not a bad Mom as it may look:)

I've spent the past 2 days thinking about how blessed Joey and I are to have these three wonderful little girls in our lives. I don't know what we'd do without them. Each one of them has a unique, special, wonderful personality. They have such sweet quiet loving little spirits. Anyone that knows them, loves them. They are the best kids a Mom could ask for! Each one of them adds to our family in such a way that without one of them, our family would be so incomplete. I love them with all of my heart.

Holly, I am glad to see that you still can have a great time with your little ones, I hope truly you are ok, it's hard, cuz if your like me, you put on a front, and you are strong in front of family and friends, or the computer.. Go take care of yourself...

I am glad that you found a smile. I hope that you are also feeling all of the love that is being sent you way.

I know that your heart is sad over the loss you are feeling. I think that it is wonderful that in the middle of all this you still can recognize and count your blessings.

Your three little girls are indeed precious and a special blessing.

Be at peace sweet friend. I feel sure you will have another child in due time.

I send love, Lura

You have such a beautiful family Holly and you are right to dwell on your many blessings at this time, even though I know you must be feeling really sad and bereft. You have something more precious than gold and what the rich man can't buy. You have a family that loves you and that you love back. So many people would love to have just a portion of what you have been blessed with. You are a special lady to a lot of people. I, for one, love you and your family to bits!

They are hard not to love! I've been watching home videos all weekend long and it was sad to think how fast they're growing up. :( The pictures of Cali had me laughing pretty hard, thanks!

I love how we can all find joy even in times of sadness. Just looking at how beautiful and precious these girls are how can we not be grateful for a Father in Heaven who sees after us all. You are one special lady and know we love and care for you dearly.
