It’s my Birthday

I have had such a wonderful day of being a mom.

I slept in…LOVE that part.
I finally got ready before 2 in the afternoon
I went to all the parties for my kids at school and was the class photographer…I nominated myself to do that.
I brought a car load of kids home and they played outside until dark
We had pizza for dinner and watched movies.
Lots of Birthday love from friends and family.

And for my present. I have decided to take on a diet challenge YES even when I am 15 weeks pregnant. While at dinner a few nights ago I was talking with Rebekah Westover and she told me about this Kristi Approved Live the Life program. I came home looked it up and emailed my question about starting something like this when I am pregnant and Kristi called me within 30 min. and said “Yes you should totally do it.” and here I am signing up. And the hardest part is putting it out here for others to know of my commitment…very vulnerable.

Now onto some of the photos that I took today.
Issac shares his birthday with me in the same month and I have had the joy of planning his party and today we did the photos for the card. This is when I think all mom’s should know how to take some good photos at home…and then I think I should teach them to do it and then I think ummmm, not sure if I would be a good teacher.
