Thank you to these lovely ladies. . .

Its because of these three beautiful ladies(and a little help from their daddy:) that I have the title of "mother", a role I cherish and hold as a sacred and oh-so-important responsibility. These girls have changed my life in ways I never could've imagined.



I love being these girls mommy. I love their sweet spirits and the things they have taught me. I love their excitement for life and their ability to love unconditionally. I love the examples they set for me in forgiveness, kindness, and love. I also love that these girls are 3 of my best little friends. I hope we will always be close buddies. I just love having daughters! Its so fun to have our own little girl posse:) We do hope, however, that Joey can have a little guy join his "team" soon:)


Group hug! (Can you tell how much Cali is enjoying hugging me? haha)


I have 4 other ladies I'd also like to thank today. First is my own sweet mother. She is a gentle loving person with a testimony of the gospel that is firm and unshaken. I look up to her more than she realizes and love her more than words can ever say. Thank you Mom for everything you have done and continue to do for me. And thank you for being a wonderful Grandma! I LOVE YOU!

My mom, with Cali and my youngest bro, Taylor-June 2008. She is so cute, isn't she? My dad totally scored.

Second is my dear mother-in-law, Cyndi. She is a generous, selfless, loving and super fun lady. My husband is who he is today because of his sweet mother. I have so much to thank her for that(since he is pretty darn near perfect!). She is also an awesome Nana to our girls. They love spending time with her. Thank you Cyndi for being such a wonderful mother and grandmother! We love you!!


Cyndi and I livin' it up at a Twilight party. She definitey Fun with a capital F. :)



And last but not least, are my amazing grandmothers. My Grandma Smith passed away a few years back, but I have fond memories(no pictures on my desktop though, Dad send me some!) of her and our visits to Oklahoma to see her and Grandpa. She had a sweet and contagious laugh I will never forget. I never doubted she loved me and was proud of me and who I became. She always made sure to tell me that. We miss you Granny. . . hope you are still proud:)

My Grandma Adams, my mom's mom, is an incredible lady. Anyone that knows her, respects her and admires her as one of those people that you want to be just like. She is so kind, such a hard worker, and just has a spirit of love and gentleness about her. She has a love of family and family togetherness that is unsurpassed. I love you lots Grandma!

I love the family pictures, especially the multi-generational one. I have an old picture my mom took with my siblings, myself and my great-grandma. She was so set on taking that picture when we were kids and I remember wondering why. Now I know...time moves fast and loved ones pass before we know it.
