all the stuff that goes on here

So great things have been happening that have kept me away from the computer.
1. Brody's photoshoot was a super success! He was so stinkin adorable, I actually cried when we went back to look at the proofs. Our sweet little miracle baby has been through SO much. He has been poked and cut and opened up...medicated and medicated some more...and this kid is the happiest, most loving and content baby I have ever seen. He is proud to be Brody and we are so in love with him! Now his photos will be sent to the Downs Syndrome Association of SA and they will determine where his photo will go in the calendar. Obviously we think he should be on the cover (lol) but thats not for us to decide!
2. The end of the preschool year has come! Bryce has done super amazing this year at school, we were blessed with an awesome teacher who has a heart for our family. She has taught Bryce such awesome things. I am so proud that my 3 year old writes his name, knows his spanish colors, can count to 20, knows our address AND what city all his friends live in (ie he knows we live in helotes, andrew lives in boerne, logan lives in pipe creek) ha are these considered "cities"!
3. Mother's Day come and went and I did not have a total fit about it. I missed my mom so much on that day that it hurt to the core of my bones. I just so badly wanted to take her to eat crab legs and have a margarita like I have every year! I remember last year's mothers day we met her at Joe's Crab Shack, I was pregnant with Brody and Bryce was so proud to show her how he could go down the slide like a big boy. We brought her a HUGE plant and presents and it was just a great time. We went to babies r us after and she bought me presents for Brody. I will forever keep those memories in my heart.
My precious family did everything they could to make the day special for me. They got me a beautiful james avery necklace and some other sweet gifts, plus made me breakfast in bed then later took me on a picnic in the park. I love my 3 guys so much! Justin has given me the best gift in the world, and that is the chance to be a mother. We have created two fabulous children and for that I am forever thankful. We spent the rest of the day with amazing friends that lift me up and always happen to know the best things to say. Please lots of special prayers for my brother, his heart is so heavy with hurt and sadness. He is still so angry and hurt by the same person I am and my mom was. We have such a burden of anger towards her and my brother truly feels she is the one the ended my moms life and I pray for his strength in forgiveness. I have struggled with it so badly and I have had tons and tons of support. I just pray that he will be strong.
4. Things have also been exciting with MOPS! I have been asked to join the leadership team for next year and I am extremely honored and excited. The steering team is created of about 8 women who run the show for Boerne MOPS. I will be the new Creative Activities Director and I just cannot wait to get started. MOPS has blessed my life in so many ways and I was very blessed to have shared my testimony at our last meeting. It has been a long time since I stood up and spoke in front of 100 people and I have to say that I was excited and nervous and I had to really do what I could not to pee my pants (yes I was a little nervous!) WHAT? Me? SHY!? Seriously. I am looking forward to our retreat in a couple of weeks!

Ok that is all for now. I have tons of pictures I need to post, but its time to get all these men dressed for church!
