Mother's Day....

So...today is Mother's Day!
I thought I would put up some pictures of me and my mothers (my mom & my mother-in-law) as well as pictures of when I first because a mom to a little boy & a little girl.
Mother's Day was hard for me for a while though...because I ended up having a miscarriage within the first year of my marriage. So Mother's Day in 2007, I kept thinking about the little baby sitting in heaven, and I really wish he/she was in my womb growing. HOWEVER if that baby was in my womb that Mother's Day...I would not be honored and entrusted enough to be Ezekiel's mother. So I guess God knew what he was doing, but it still doesn't cause me to think about that little one that I got to cherish for only a week.
Alright on for some pics...Jean (my mother-in-law) Myself & Susie (my mother)Not the first time I held my little boy Z, but I looked the best :) I wasn't feeling so hot the first time I held Z-man...shaking and everything!In the recovery room with Aspen...the first time I was a mommy to a little girl!

I do want to say that I know a lot of women (and families) that are growing their families either by adoption or having babies...YOU are all in my prayers during this time. As well can't wait until I hear the news that you are holding your baby/child in your arms for the first time! It's such a GREAT time to be a mommy.
I hope that you all have a GREAT Mother's Day!!! God Bless You!

Picture overloaded...and 30 Days of me!

Day 19- Nicknames you have; why do you have them
Alright...with a name like Katrina...I truly didn't like a lot of nicknames...but some came and went so here they are. Although sometimes I don't remember why I had them. Sorry...
~Trinie-Beanie -- this one came when I was really little. Sometimes it was just Trinie sometimes it was just Beanie. It was probably by far a family nickname.
~Kat -- this name came and went through middle school and high school. During Art class in Middle School and basketball in high school.
~(oh my I can't believe I'm putting this one actually out there in real life!) Treaner-Weaner -- this name really can only be called by 1 person and I think she was "broadening" my Trinie-Beanie nickname.
~Powder -- this name came from when I worked at Redcloud, in Colorado. It's not because I like to ski on the fresh snow powder, it's because of a lousy kitchen skit that I partcipated in when new campers came into for the time at camp.

Day 20- Someone you see yourself marrying/being with in the future
I see my self being in the future to my current husband, Rick! I guess I can tell you all about him...but I would rather tell you a story about how we came to be a couple! A lot of people are amazed when they find out. :) We were actually in the same state of Colorado and we did this wonderful thing called eHarmony. You actually fill out a detailed questioner and you get to know yourself but while you are doing that they figure out who you are combatable with. (This part is FREE!!!) Then you actually get matched with guys/girls. I'm really lucky that Rick "expanded" his search to include the rest of Colorado. Rick started the eHarmony conversation (which is 5 steps and all confidential by using eHarmony as the vice to get a hold of the other person) We ended up getting matched in December of 2005, we did the eHarmony stuff, we took a little break (that is another post all in itself), we contacted back via our person e-mails at the end of January still did a bunch of questions and telling about our dreams and such, we started talking on the phone in Feburary, we saw each other in March, we were engaged after Easter that year (I don't exactly remember when Easter was that year...), we got married in August. So that is the short version of everything...I hope you enjoyed it...Here are some pictures. I truly feel like God used eHarmony to bring the PERFECT guy for me!!! If you have any questions how eHarmony works please let me know...I would love to help you! (And NO I am NOT being paid by them!)Our engagement pic!!!Our wedding pic!!!A pic of us in Rocky Mountain National Park (where we got married)
Day 21- A picture of something that makes you happy
