Thankful to be a Mom

Just before bed last night, Ben asked me to come sit by him. I snuggled next to him and then Emma raced over and lunged onto the couch. Then Josh wanted in on the fun, so I pulled him up on my lap. They all gave me a huge hug and then we read a story out of the Friend together. It was one of those perfect "mom moments" that make you realize this really is the best job in the world. My kids are so sweet and Jake and I feel blessed to have them in our family. Ben, Emma, and Josh... We love you.

When the two older kids went to the bathroom to brush their teeth, Josh was in a really silly mood. The first pic I caught him laughing, and the second was the beginning of his "scrunchy" face. What can I say? We make adorable kids!

Those moments are the best. And they really do make it worth all of the less then joyous moments!

your kids are so cute. Jayden now wants me to read her a story before bed each night, and I kind of like it...as long as it's not one of those crazy long ones. Oh, and holy cow you look hot. Your face is so thin!

wait you are a good Mom and an Obama supporter?!? i didn't know that was even possible...

sorry was that a bad joke? I'm going to leave it here just in case it was a good joke, but feel free to delete it if you perceive it as a bad joke.

Cute kids, can't wait to join the club. I'm sure dads get those moments to, right?

You look way too young and hot to be a mom of 3. You seriously look about 18 in that picture. Your kids are so cute!
