So I planned to have this posted like yesterday but of course I ran into problems so I want your help! I went to upload the pictures from my Easter dinner and my computer was saying I needed to start a new photo album so after a little research it appears that I have over 35g of photos on my computer!! Ah I have a picture taking problem! So my question is mamas where do you store your photos of your babes that you don’t want to lose? My biggest fear is loosing my photos of my kids so right now I back them up on an external hard drive as well as on my computer but should I be doing something else?

Ok so back to the post.. I hope you all had a great Easter! We had such a great weekend together with Family celebrating our Saviours resurrection and than on Monday I hosted my family for dinner! If you’ve been following me for any time now you know this is my “thing”. I love to throw a party – tablescape and all! So I cooked a ham dinner with all the fixings but obviously the most exciting part for me was the tablescape. I even did a little table for the kids but of course I was too slow on taking the finished product photo and the kiddies got “into” their table so you’ll have to enjoy an action shot!

  • Long weekend spent doing errands and packing - sore throat, full ears and a headache making this girl frustrated - sleep they say!?! And I say I wish but when your a mama to 4 and moving in just days sleep will have to wait! Thankful for medicine, @starbuckscanada and the fact we get to move to our new house so soon! Perspective changes everything - can’t change how I feel but I can change my focus!
  • Cold wet morning and early specialist appointment where they told me I had to wear loose fitting clothes- track suit it is! #monday #letsdothis
  • The privilege and blessing it is to be their mommy is one I don’t take for granted ever. They were each worth the years of heartache. Today is always an emotional one for me so today I say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the moms - the first time moms, the seasoned ones, the mommy’s in waiting, the hurting ones, the grieving one wether that be from the loss of a mom or a loss of a baby/child, to the foster mamas, to the bonus moms to the adoptive mommy’s and the birth moms - I am thinking of you today and I hope you feel love and valued because you are!
  • As a mommy I find myself often times so proud to be the mommy of my little people. I remember being proud when they slept through the night or took their first steps. The older they get the more proud I am of them not necessarily when they simply accomplish a task or master a skill but when they make choices that show their true character. This girl had another gymnastics competition today and she was feeling all kinds of nerves but as she told her brother and sister “I just went out there and did it” and that she did. I was so proud of her not just for being brave or not just because she put lots of work into learning her skills and ended up placing in each event she competed in but because my 6 year old was awarded the sportsmanship trophy for the ages 7-9 in the competition. That to me as her mama made me cry and beam with pride. My girl out there with a positive attitude encouraging the other athletes and competing in a kind and fair manner that’s what it’s all about to this mama. I can take no credit for her awards or her trophy today she earned them all but I sure am proud and not afraid to say it. I love you #graylynnhope and I’m proud to be your mama not just today but everyday!
  • Easter behind us (already) May is coming and dare I say summer is on its way... I’m pretty sure end of school will be here literally before I know it and I’m ok with that but lots of exciting things in store for the next little while and these little people make it all worth it.
  • Monday’s mantra! (And everyday) If we all where a little kinder think how different the world would be! Kindness always wins!
