Happy Mother's Day!

One of the best joys in my life has been becoming a mom. I love all five of our kids so much. Of course none of them are alike. Carolyn is our oldest, the leader, the boss. LOL  She and Bob held our Easter celebration. They had an awesome BBQ and a fun egg hunt. Here she is hiding some eggs. We had so many that we had to start grouping them. LOL
Cathryn is our second child. She wanted to be a mom from the time she was a girl. She does a wonderful job with Ashton and Ava. She has one more year of college till she can teach elementary children. That has been a dream of hers for a long time. Here she is hiding eggs also. We had some small children present, so lots of eggs were hidden in plain sight on the lawn.
Isaiah is our middle child and first boy. He has quite a temper, but a good heart. He is such a good daddy to Madison. She clings to him at every get together.
Hazel loves her babes so much. She and I have developed a very close relationship since she has become a woman. She is quiet, hardworking, and always there for her family. Here she is looking for eggs with Izzie and Noah.
Jon is our baby, but has become such a good man. He has beautiful curly hair, but you can see what he does to it. Mama doesn't control the clippers any more. LOL
I took over a hundred pictures at Easter, but  half of them are the backs of heads. If you ever need a picture of the back of your head, call me. I am the one to take it for you. LOL  I didn't even find any pictures of Ivan. I guess he was hiding out. LOL I did catch Jeremy, just as he looked up.
Here are Bob and Jonny.
Here are some random pictures of the egg hunt.
In this final one, Ashton about flattened Carolyn's iris in hunt for some eggs. LOL
Next time I will share some pictures of the grandkids. I wanted to dedicate today's post to my own babies. LOL 

I had a lovely day on Saturday. I drove down to Carolyn's town and we went garage saling. It was an awesome day, but the worst garage sales I have ever been to. I did not find one thing to buy. LOL That's ok. I got to spend time with our oldest. That was the fun. She even took me out for lunch. We both had chef salads, so I didn't even stray from my diet. (grin) Well, I need to get this posted. All of you mom's out there, have a wonderful Mother's Day. Thanks for visiting and please come again.
