Mother's Day

Pour out your heart like water before the face of the Lord. Lift your hands toward him for the life of your young children.
Lamentations 2:19

Being a mom is such a privilege. It's the best of jobs. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be Ava's mommy. There is nothing as rewarding, full filling, exhilarating, or exhausting! Words can not express my love for this little girl. She is so precious. Everyday is a new entertaining adventure full of laughter.
We had such a special Mother's day this year. Ava got me a beautiful dress from Banana Republic that she was very proud of. As well as a card that plays music when you open it - her favorite. She has started a collection of music cards. She loves to have them all open at the same time - each playing a different song. We hit a little road block when her Daddy wouldn't let her take the cards in the car for the road trip!
Steven, Ava, and I went to the Tulsa Zoo for Mother's day. We all had a great time. It was the perfect way to spend the day. Below are a few pictures...

I hope you don't think I'm crazy but tonight I was at your MIL's store getting a bridesmaid dress and she said "you look just like my Daughter-in-law". So then she asked me where I went to school and I told her OBU and she said that's where you went. I'm SEVERAL years older than you but she said you were an E. I was a tri chi. So then she pulled up your blog to show me your picture. (I hope you don't feel insulted - I told her she was giving me a compliment - I WISH I was as pretty as you).
Anyway - I've actually read several of the blogs you have in your links from links from other people. It's a small world.
