Happy Mother's Day!!
I don't have a sweet story like Lise. But I do have a picture of me and BOTH kids, which hardly ever happens. They just refuse to be in pictures together. They would like everyone to think they hate each other, but I know that deep down they do love each other. I have proof that once upon a time, they weren't scared to show affection for one another. How CUTE are they? This is my favorite picture of the 2 of them. They are 2 1/2 and 1 1/2 here.
Yesterday, Leah and I went to the funeral of the dad of one of her best friends. It was unlike any funeral I have ever been to. It wasn't stuffy and reserved. It was joyful and vibrant and alive and just amazing. I didn't know this man, but by the time that funeral was over, I was truly wishing I had. I feel like I missed out on knowing an extraordinary individual.
It also marked the first time Leah has worn a skirt EVER. She's worn a dress a couple of times since she was 5 but never a skirt. I thought she looked so pretty. I probably won't see this again for awhile. The dress I have on was bought like 3 or 4 years ago. And the shoes were bought this year at Goodwill. They look like they were made to be worn together, don't they?
