A Collection of Pictures

Life has an uncanny ability to send us through some pretty tumultuios storms. There is one person who is able to calm the proverbial choppy waters, and that's Mom.

Whenever my mom comes to visit I inevitably feel less stressed. Marcus is blanked in hugs, snuggles, kisses, and love, and I'm able to put my worries aside. I'm able to breath a little easier when Mom is near.

While Grandma D was here I wanted to make sure we didn't send her home without getting some good photos of her and Marcus. (I don't have many pictures of my Grandmas and me. I want Marcus to have an expansive collection of pictures of his family and him to look back upon.) 

We brought Grandma to one of our favorite local spots - how we'd never taken her here is beyond me.
 
There are never enough thanks when it comes to the love and support we receive from our families.
Mom/Grandma, we miss you already. The countdown has begun until we see you next (19 days, in case you wondering).

  6. Wow, you look JUST like your mom! Great pics, I need to make sure I do the same for my kiddos. I'm better about taking pics of my kids with my own mom, but not as good about doing it with the in-laws. I already regret not having many of my kids with their great grandmothers (Adam's side), who have both taken a turn for the worse recently. :(
