Where are you camera?

I am trying to remain calm. I haven't seen my camera since Sunday evening and I have pictures of the babies dedication on there that I wanted to post. I know it has to be around somewhere. That's what happens I guess when you take it everywhere you go. I am working ;0) now and will put together a search team when I get home. I didn't look for it to much last night I was pretty busy but I am determined to find it TODAY.

On a lighter note...we had a wonderful Mother's Day. Last year I had two children on Mother's Day this year four!! I wouldn't have it any other way. They are my angels, all of them. I love my girls so much. Pastor John's sermon was awesome and really hit home. He spoke of how mother's compare themselves. Meaning you wish maybe you were as good a mom as someone else. He spoke how God chose us to be the mother's of the children we have. Just as he chose Mary to be Jesus' mother. I feel so blessed God chose me to be the mother of 4 girls. I think back to when I was a little girl and how when I thought about being married and having children I always wished I would have a little girl. I didn't really want boys I had four brothers!! I kinda had my fill with them. Don't get me wrong I love my brothers but I wish I would've had a sister closer to my age. Anyhow, I never would have thought I would have been blessed so greatly. I always thought it would be neat to have twins but never dreamed I would. I remember when Makenna was the only child we had. She was everything I ever hoped for. It is so different having only one child. When we found out we were having another girl I was so excited!! Our little Chlo Chlo. Makenna would have a sister. She would know what it was like to have a sister close to her age. They would love each other and hopefully be best friends one day. Then our third pregnancy...a total shock to say the least. Maybe this would be our son. Josh always wanted to have son. Not that he doesn't cherish our girls. I was convinced that this was God's way of giving us our boy/s. Who would've ever thought that it would be twins. Not me...not Josh. It was so exciting after all not everyone gets to have twins. I remember thinking I always wanted twin girls but I'm sure these are boys. We had names Gabriel and Noah. Both boys would have Michael as their middle names after Josh. But as they did the ultrasound at 20 weeks and the ultrasound tech said it looks like baby A is a girl I thought hmmm...one of each still convinced this was our way of having a boy, and then....I'd bet baby B is a girl as well. Two more. Wow!! Crazy, not only were we having one child it was twins. Not only were we having twins they were girls!! The twins were not planned. We weren't even planning on having more children. After all it took us over two years to conceive Makenna and we were told we were considered to have fertility problems. Chloe didn't come easy either. It took us a year and a half and a surgery to get her. I guess for all of our hard work God rewarded us with a two for one!! I am so glad that our LAST (i mean that in every way) pregnancy was Reagan AND Riley. Chloe is five and a half years older than them. Makenna is eight and a half. They will always have a playmate and they love each other so!!

To all of my girlfriends out there... I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

It IS crazy to find out you're carrying twins! What a neat story you wrote, though. Your family is simply perfect. It's what God wanted for you and your man. Those precious girls under your care and guidance. Learning about the Lord every day, learning to love each other and share... it's all so neat. i reflect on my family and just am blown away with how blessed i am. I love having twins and wouldn't have it any other way!!
