Mother's Day
This Mother's Day was such a SPECIAL Day for me. In fact, it was one of the best days of my life. First of all, I feel so truly blessed to me a mom. Being a mom is one of the most exciting, joyful, special things that has ever happened to me. I love my little Blakely Ann more than words can even describe. She has truly been such a special gift from God. I could not have prayed or asked for a more perfect baby.
This Mother's Day we got to dedicate her at church. First, when we walked into church Brandon and I were greeted by about 20 family and friends that came just for Blakely's baby dedication. I almost started crying when I saw everyone and realized how many people truly love Blakely. I know that many others would have been there if they could. We had the privilege of having Brandon's Uncle Robert do the ceremony. He did such a great job. He made it so personable and spoke exactly what we needed to hear. It was special to us because 7 years ago Brandon's uncle was standing on the alter marrying Brandon and I and now 7 years later he is dedicating our baby girl to the Lord.
Another reason it was so special was because I got to spend the day with my mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and Brandon's grandmother. My grandparents were able to drive from Amarillo to be here and that meant the world to Brandon and I. Mammy was also able to make it which was such a special treat too. Overall, it was a day in our life that we will never forget.

Blakely made me a card a Mrs. Lisa's house. Lisa had to do it several times because Blakely wouldn't quit curling up her toes. But, it turned out perfect!
I came home one day after working late and Blakely and Brandon had gone and picked me up some of my favorite flowers in my favorite color. I was so surprised!

Blakely could not have been more perfect at the service. She sat through the entire service and was great at the end when we went up to do the dedication.

My best friend Sheaffer with Blakely and I. Brandon and I are so blessed to have Chris and Sheaffer as best friends. Thank you both so much for coming. After we got to the service they offered to be the photographer and thank you!
Uncle Robert with our family. Blakely was a little distracted at that point.
My mom, dad and grandmother with me and Blakely.
Uncle Justin (my brother) and Aunt Lydia (my amazing sister-in-law). Uncle Byron (my brother-in-law) and Aunt Regina (my sister) were there but I didn't get a picture of them on my camera. Thank you all for coming. We are so thankful that Blakely has aunt and uncles that love her sooooo much and give her soooo much attention.

Pappy, Honey (Brandon's mom) with Blakely. My mom has all the good pictures of Mammy, Pappy, and Aunt Rhenda on her camera. I will hopefully add more pics later.
