Happy Mother's Day to Our Mom!!
Love, Erin Ann, Natalie, (Scott), and Steph
The following blog post is a mix of thoughts and pictures contributed by my sisters. Not all of the pictures are family pictures, but just images to represent some of our memories. These are not all my words or thoughts.
Mom never went to medical school but she is one darn good Witch Doctor. What ever ailment you may have mom knows how to fix you right, and 9 times out of 10 it works. Thank you, Mom, for always taking the time to keep us healthy.
She scored when she married the handsome Naval officer!
My mother might not realize this but she gave me a gift by teaching me to always see the gentle beauty and humor in little children. She always gets a kick out of the cute things children do and say and she also points out the sweet innocent faces that might have gone unnoticed.

A fun memory I have of you is that if you saw a strange fruit you would always buy it and bring it home for us all to try together. I always enjoyed that and I now continue that same fun tradition with my own kids. (From Natalie, pictures by Erin.)
We both are terrified of roller coasters, why are we on one? We sure did have fun! (From Stephanie)
Best host! Always throwing the best parties. (From Stephanie)
People always ask me where I learned to plan events. I always tell them it's just a skill you learn from your mom! (From Erin)
Letting me take a bath wherever I want! (Stephanie) (Obviously.)
When I eat an artichoke I think of my mother. A nicely softened artichoke was always a fun snack she had us all share with her. (Natalie and Erin)
For having a father who thoroughly disliked animals we sure had plenty of pets. Thank you, Mom, for always being on our side when it came to our pets.

We always had the best dresses because of you!

Thanks for all the fun family vacations!
Thank you for all the time you spent taking us to sports, dance classes, school, and more.
We all know we always had the prettiest mommy! (And ageless too!)
