Hands and Heart

Lately when someone sees me in a store walking with my cart, 3 kiddos and my big prego belly they will stop and say "You have your hands full". I just laugh and usually keep walking, many times wondering was that a compliment:)

OK so being a mom of 3 almost 4 is crazy I will admit. There are days I want to run away and hide under the covers. There are days all I deal with is tantrums and kids fighting, or throw up and snot. There are days when I feel like a bad mom. So many may think my hands are full!

Then there are the days when one of my kids gives me a hug for no reason, a "I love you" or a sweet "Thank You". My house is a home because its always filled with, laughter and tons of love. I know there will be good and bad days, but I also know that God has trusted me with these precious children and I am going to do my best to be the best Mom I can be.
I only have 18 years with them till they are on their own. Each moment with them is a gift, the good, the bad and the ugly..

So next time someone says my "Hands are Full" My response will be "Yep but my heart is overflowing!"

Snowy filled fun!

Dallas weather has been crazy this winter. Today it is 60 degrees, but the 1st 2 weeks of February it was snowy and Dallas pretty much shut down. The kids and I loved it, we baked lots of goodies, drank way too much hot chocolate, and did lots of sledding.
It was lots of family time filled with laughs and snuggling by the fire...just like I like it:)
