My kids know the way to my heart…letting mommy take some pictures…although it usually looks more like pulling teeth with my kids.  This year, we took my Mother’s Day pictures a little early because we found this awesome tree when we were out looking for bluebonnets.  On Mother’s Day, we also went to lunch with the whole family and my oldest son, Barrett surprised me with a real gold and amethyst necklace.  He spent his own money on it and was so excited to give it to me.  I feel guilty taking it knowing he spent so much, and yet so proud at the same time because he is so generous and loving. I feel so lucky to be their mom..even it IS next to impossible to get them to let me take their picture!
