today is a very special day.
it's my mama's birthday!!
meet my mom.
Shelly Lynn Burt Akerly.
[she's the pretty one on the right]
she's mother of 4: me, grayson, grant, and our puppy Jake,
super organized, very practical, and great at organizing and planning vacations!!
[grant, me, grayson]
she trains dogs, bakes bread, sews quilts, loves Jesus, and makes really yummy pancakes.
mom and kid #5, i mean, my dad.
look at that adorable family she's raised!
we'd be hoodlums if it wasn't for her.
can you imagine my dad raising us?
[anyone who knows my dad is probably rolling on the floor right now.]
i can't imagine having a better mom.
[sorry, no trades accepted.]
and of course,
my mom wouldn't be here if it wasn't for granny! : )
thanks for being a great mom to my mama!
and that is why my [life is lovely]!
