Celebrating my mom!

This weekend we celebrated my wonderful mom's birthday. Words cannot even express how much I love and appreciate my mom. She truly is my best friend and true confidant.

She raised SIX kids, (well I guess she's still raising three-because they're still at home) home-schooled all of us, and sacrificially poured everything she had into each one of our lives. I am so grateful for all she has done (and continues to do) for us!

I am blessed to be her daughter!

Saturday night, our family gathered at my sister B's house to celebrate my mom!

B was a wonderful host and we enjoyed such a great time of being together.
Taco's were on the menu for the night--

which is one of my kiddo's favorite foods!

I will say...even though it was my mom's special night,

my new niece Brooklyn was definitely the star of the show.

Everyone had to take their turn holding,

feeding,

snuggling,

and loving on this newest (and cutest) addition to our family.

Our family LOVES babies!!!

Happy Birthday to THE BEST mom---and the most wonderful Mimi EVER!!!!

You have such a beautiful family, Jenny! Your mom seems precious. Six kids! Wow.

You asked about what a marathon relay is...it's a marathon divided up in four parts. Sometimes it can be a two person or even five person relay, too.

The marathon we are running is divided up in four parts, and we each run about 6 or 7 miles each.

LOVE those ties you made. I'm so impressed!
