mother's day pics

Ever look at a pic and wonder who those people are? I feel that way about this pic. Is that really me with those 3 kids? They are mine? Like, I am old and have three children and I am their sole care taker? Oh wow!
Like all the matching? I scored a new dress when we bought the kids Easter outfits and just wore it for the first time. I told Neil I would need it to match all the kids outfits when we take pictures. Neil was a very good sport the morning we took this pic. I got everyone dressed and then saw that Neil was wearing a red and navy plad shirt! I thought to myself, " That just won't work in the impromptu family pictures we will be taking today after church. How do I tell a grown man that he must change his shirt with out making him mad?" I don't remember what I said, but to his credit he was not too put out and made some very good clothing choices to match the family. What a great gift to give your wife on mother's day - patience and cooperation in a hair brained scheme to take a family picture when it is nap time.

Your kids are too cute!

I love the matching outfits too cute!! I like to trick Damon. I see what shirt he gets out on Saturday night to iron, and then we match him!!! He usually doesn't realize until we are driving to church! HA HA HA

You guys look great. It's funny that after all these years, we live in the same city. Look forward to hanging out on Thursday.
