Mother's day weekend was a bit of a blur, and mostly in a really good way! I had a lot going on at work and I couldn't leave early, so we didn't get to go to my parent's house until Saturday. Regardless, we had a great time. We spent the day on their pontoon boat and this pale girl got a tiny bit of sun. I'm not exactly dark complexioned anyway, but next to my two kids, I'm downright ghost-like. Not cool.
It was fun to spend the first half of Mothers Day weekend with my mom. Love her.
And Sunday, I made Kevin take our annual Mommy/Daughter picture. Talk about hard. Karsten is in that stage where it is impossible to get pictures. She barely looks at the camera. So while Kevin and I were focused on trying to get Karsten to look at the camera, we completely ignored Kate. I mean she's had more than enough pictures taken of her to know the drill. And then of course when I put the pictures on the computer, I realized that Kate was making faces or staring off in a completely different direction for 99.99% of them. That story sound familiar to anyone else?
So this one picture is a miracle in and of itself. Mothers day 2016.
These two girls make our life interesting, funny, complicated, crazy, busy, LOUD and fun.
It is so crazy to me to believe that this is my fifth Mother's Day. The years have flown by, but I am so thankful for each and every moment. God has blessed our family in ways we only dreamed about.
And it's also a little crazy that I dressed both of the girls in the same outfit for their 2nd Mothers Days. Didn't even realize that till I did this collage. :) Ha!
