Mother's Day and 28 week pics

Yesterday was my very first Mother's Day with a live child!  Sure, Daughter is still in my womb, but that doesn't make her any less of a child or me any less of a mother. It was wonderful!

At church, the Pastor had all of the mothers stand to be recognized and for the first time in my life, I was able to stand.  Such an awesome feeling!  It's amazing to go to a church that recognizes life and therefore me as a mother :)

Daughter and Mat got me beautiful cards and made me a new ironing board!  This may sound boring, but the quilter in me has been wanting a big one for ages.  Now I have one that completely covers the chest freezer! 

 Generally, my sewing machine is right next to the freezer on the kitchen table.  So this will be so convenient!  Thank you so much, Mat (and Daughter... I'm sure she commissioned it ;)

28 weeks!  With Mookie

28 weeks!
Yesterday afternoon, we finished our orchard planting.  We now have an orchard of 10 fruit trees!  Hopefully they all survive and we'll have fruit up the wazoo in a few years :) 

I had a wonderful first Mother's day.  My husband, Daughter, and Mookie are such awesome blessings (among my many blessings!).  I'm so thankful!  :)
