Mother's Day

{Mother's Day morning, my Darling and our beautiful girls!}

My dad, sister and I had been planning a special day for my mom. Scott, the girls, and I surprised her by showing up at church, then we managed to surprise her even more by making lunch! We snuck away after church and my sisters and I put together an elegant table and lunch for everyone. My mom was delighted and we had a wonderful afternoon!

My sweet husband gave me two of my favorite things:

The most amazing cookbook I have ever seen
 and my most favorite ice cream ever!

I am glad there is a day devoted to mothers. 
Mothers through the ages have sacrificed and worked hard for their children. 
I am so thankful for my mom!

And I am incredibly blessed to be a mom, 
to these charming little girls
and their sibling in heaven.
My greatest joy would be to know that all my children will meet in the presence of God one day-
because the goal of my motherhood
is that Jesus is Lord, in every space of our lives.


  1. I LOVE the new Pioneer Woman cookbook!! I own it as well. What is your favorite recipe??

  2. Oh, Katherine, I can't wait to try them all! I think my favorite will be anything with coffee, and the caramel filled brownies.
