Photos of My beloved Children together.
Maybe, in the future, they'll all come back?
God, bring them home.
I'm so very thankful for the ones who have had the courage to come home so far.
I love each one of my kids the exact same..........not one less or one more than the other.
'Like'... is a different story.
I have always felt incredible deep love for each one of them, and their unique personalities.
It's amazing. They are all my "favorites" ....no matter what they may think.
"I love you, Austin...
I love you, Andrew...
I love you, Jacob...
I love you, Alex...
I love you, Jordan...
I love you, Michael...
Heaven bless you"
No one, not even poets, have ever been able to measure how much a heart can hold.
The day comes when we decide that it no longer serves us to blame our parents, our family, our boss, our circumstances... or anyone or anything else ... and we decide it’s time to move forward simply because we’re worth it.
And that’s the day, despite our circumstances, that we begin to discover just how powerful we really are.
"Bring Him Home"
bring him peace
bring him joy
he is young
he is only a boy
you can take, you can give
let him be let him live
if I die, let me die
let him live
bring him home
bring him home
bring him home"
These are just some of the dozens of cards and letters that have been written and saved here at home for my 5 boys Austin, Jordan Jacob, Andrew and Alexander. After finally coming to terms that their dad would NOT let them come home to their mother...I finally began to speak to them thru these letters and cards. They are now in cute boxes all waiting for the day they come home and would like to have them. The oldest Austin already has his box full of my thoughts and good wishes over many years that they may have mistakenly thought I had abandoned them!
Haha, me in a bikini. I still am very uncomfortable even seeing myself in one here. Much too immodest! Oh well, my focus was on having loads of fun with all the adorable children at that time. What a fun home and neighborhood we lived in at that time. Special days, for sure...best in my life I would say!! ~~Jordan in the pool. ~~Aspen getting out of the pool and Jacob standing next to me, mom. (Tanner on the slide in back)
Jordan shows us his birthday present he just opened. It is an alphabet educational toy. Baby Andrew is learning to walk and getting good at it. Toddler Jacob watches. I think Jacob still wanted a bottle to hang on to his 'baby status' for a bit longer, since baby Andrew was getting most of the attention these days. ♥ St George Utah 1998
Rub a Dub Dub 4 boys in a tub!! All the Holler boys are bathing like true friends. ( I added this cute sticker to the photo album after the fact) Dec 1998 St. George Utah (Andrew has his hand to his forehead as his way of saying cheese, since he thinks that mommy putting the camera up to her forehead is what she is asking him to do too, when she says 'say cheese')
While giving lots of kisses on Andrew. Jordan has to come get in on the action too. See Andrew put his left hand up to his forehead. This was the way he would say 'cheese' for the camera because he would see the photographer (daddy at this time) holding the camera up to his eyes and this is what Andrew 'thought' that he was suppose to do too. So funny and cute ♥ ♥ St. George Utah Dec 1998
Pre-Christmas eve, Oma and Opa Holler come to visit us in St. George Utah from Las Vegas (2 hours away). Our Christmas Tree is up and loaded with gifts for this Holiday. Oma holds baby Andrew while Jacob, and Jordan show us their excited faces. Haha, cute. I also see my children's alphabet and learning posters up on our wall that I had put there for them to look at and learn from during the times I would teach them from home. Dec 1998
Bless My Son
