Mother’s Day & Nephew’s Birthday!

This weekend was time to celebrate! My oldest nephew turned 13 on Saturday and, of course, Mother’s Day was Sunday. We had a nice BBQ at my mom’s house Sunday evening. It was still a bit chilly for pool volleyball, but I’m definitely looking forward to those weeks coming up soon. So ready for some fun in the sun…and of course looking forward to creaming the guys in volleyball! Here’s a few fun pictures from the evening.

My little sisters aren’t so little anymore.  Absolutely love the women they are growing up to be! I’m sure they’ll hate me for posting this picture, but that’s what you get when you steal my camera. 🙂  I think this picture is really cute and captures their goofy nature!

My niece is such a doll!  Cannot believe how much she has grown up over the years.  So grateful that God brought her family back to Texas.  Love, love, love my time with her!  Looking forward to summer movie sleepovers with this awesome girl. 🙂

Had to get a picture with the two party VIPs.  Cameron was doing his best to photo bomb a picture with mi madre, but we decided we’d surprise him with kisses!  Love his silly smile.  I seriously cannot believe this sweet boy is a teenager.  Makes me feel OLD, but that’s because I was 12 when he was born.

Love this picture of mi madre and me!  I am so blessed to have her as a mom.  She is a true example of someone who seeks after the Lord.  I’m encouraged by her strength to persevere and her love for her family.  I hope that when God decides to grow Len and I’s family that I love the way she loves.

I’m just going to go ahead and say it.  My sweet nephew is so handsome! Normally he’s being really, really silly in pictures….but I actual got him SMILING!!!!! I know I already said this, but I really cannot believe he’s 13.  He’s got such a heart for the Lord and I’m so excited to see what God has in-store for his teenage journey. And I’m really excited for the day he has baby cousins so he can tell them all about their papa. 🙂  My sister and her hubs have done a fine job raising this boy into such a gentleman.

That’s right, ladies and gentleman, momma’s getting a gun!  We all pitched in to buy her a pistol.  Next steps is we’re all going out to lunch in a couple of weeks and helping her pick it out together. Gotta love my redneck family. 🙂

I have to say it again…I am so blessed by my family!  God has definitely had us on a narrow journey full of sadness and tears, but through it all He’s offered peace, comfort and redemption.  So blessed. So incredibly blessed.  Couldn’t imagine a better family!
