Mother's Day 2011

So, another Mother's Day has come and gone. It's not an officially recognized holiday in our household because as the mom, I think it's a dumb holiday. I'm grateful everyday (or at least most days) for my children, the way God has given them to me, and the birthmothers involved in the making of Chris and I parents. So, to take a day to single out and "honor" the people who actually have kids to show off, is dumb. However, it was also baby dedication at our church, Christ Community Church Mooresville, so we were all dressed in a way that at least coordinated and made for a better opportunity to get a picture of all of us.

This was the best we could come up with :) It's not a bad attempt considering the other holidays we've tried to take pics of.

After church and small group, we came home, slept for a little while and went out to enjoy the nice day. Caleb of course needed an accessory! Cadence got her scooter for Easter and loves it! She's super fast on it and we're glad that she enjoys it so much because it's great exercise - at least for one leg!

These boys make me smile most of the time - except for when Caleb is sitting on Creed's head or something like that. But when they're getting along, it's one of my favorite things in the entire universe.

Creed was being his normal cute self so we took advantage :)

In case you're not totally bored by pictures of an average day in the Andersen house yet, here is a video of even more cuteness from the same day :)

So cute! Love the video, you can really see Creed's 2 teeth! Caleb Shaun is really walking good and our girl is growing for sure, all legs!

I can't believe how big your girl is on her scooter... and your boys make me smile. A lot.
