A Special Mom Moment

Filed under contests, my family

Udpate: Voting will begin today at 5 pm Central time and run till 8 pm on the 22nd.


This special Mom moment was taken at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel where we celebrated my sister’s birthday.

With DH being gone a lot due to work, I feel so blessed to have two such wonderful daughters. They are the reason I get up every morning and are truly my best friends. During the sad days, they can make me laugh like no one else can. They really are the joys of my life. Of course, they have their moments when I wonder how these sometimes naughty children actually came from me (I was such a good child . . . hee hee) but I guess it just makes the good times that much more memorable.

The reason I chose this particular photo, besides the fact that we’re all looking at the camera at the same time, is because it reminds me of the ones my mom used to take of me and my sister in our matching dresses when we were younger. Such great memories!

If you like this photo (and even if you don’t) please stop by Write From Karen and vote for me. You have from the 20th to the 22nd to cast your vote. Pretty please?

  3. Dana says:

    *she screams with excitement to see a picture of Kailani*!!!! I am so glad to see a picture of you. Truly, you are just as beautiful as I thought you were and that is a great picture. I’ll definitely be voting for you! Have a great weekend.
    (p.s. – your girls are completely adorable)

  4. Carey says:

    What a great photo. You all are beautiful! I love dressing my girls in matching outfits, even if my oldest protests. Youve got my vote.

  5. Jennifer says:

    What a great photo!! You all look so pretty!! I will go vote right now.

  6. carmen says:

    off to vote! It is a good photo, and I love that top! Where’d you get it? (probably someplace in HI that we don’t have here. ha)

  7. Anne says:

    Great photo

  8. Renee says:

    where’s your matching dress? ;)

    You all look great…too great! I’m jealous, beautiful family and you get to live in Hawaii.

  9. Desert Songbird says:

    Gorgeous photo, Kailani. I really need to have more photos taken with my kids. I hate to do it because I’m so overweight, but when I think about how few photos I have with my mom and me, it makes me sad.

    I love this photo, and I’ll definitely be voting for it!

  10. Maribeth says:

    Well look at you! You three are just the most beautiful Mom & daughter’s I have seen in a long time. Tis is the first time I have seen you and you are even more lovely than I imagined! I’m going to vote now.

  11. BeachMama says:

    What a gorgeous photo. You all look so beautiful and match quite well. I’ll be heading over to vote.

  12. Holly Schwendiman says:

    I love it! You all look SO pretty!


  13. Lulu says:

    Kailani – both you and your children are just adorable! My sister and I are 18 months apart, and my mother dressed us the same until we were probably 5 years old! I’ll be sure to vote for your photo…

  14. maria says:

    (whining) I waant a giirl. Thta is a great pic. I never get pictures taken with my kids, and I should. I have millions of the kids and I haven’t had my picture taken in 3 years probably.

  15. Christine says:

    Absolutely beautiful photo of you and the girls. I love it.
    When you finish telling Carmen where you got your top, could you let me know too.

  16. Wendy says:

    I tried to vote but you can’t yet. I will go back later and try again. Beautiful picture!

  17. Lynne says:

    Beautiful shot! You make a lovely trio. I hope to visit HI some day. I keep dropping hints to my hubby.

  18. rach says:

    You are a very pretty lady with equally beautiful daughters. You are so blessed to maintain a lovely figure after having two children. I’m still struggling with my weight. I have lost a few pounds and hoping to get in better shape.

    Thanks for sharing this lovely photo. I went to Karen’s site but the voting poll is not yet ready and says to check back later. I’ll visit the site again later. Good luck!

  19. Southern Girl says:

    That’s just the sweetest photo! You and your girls look so beautiful!

  20. Debby says:

    What a sweet photo. You’re even color coordinated! You guys look so beautiful. Baby Bug seems to be growing quite a bit. I still don’t get what that doctor told you about her. She looks like she’s developing very nicely.
    It’s hard to understand how much children change you until you have them. Luna is the light of my life and I could not possibly feel closer to her even if she came from my body…though I do forget sometimes that she didn’t!

  21. Liz (Looney Mom) says:

    Girl, you are drop-dead gorgeous – it’s no wonder your girls are so beautiful. Why do we not see more pics of you on this blog? You are too modest.

    It’s amazing how our kids can be so wonderful and yet so trying at times. And I know what you mean cuz I was a perfect child too!

    Going to vote!

  22. NOLADawn says:

    Ok, how weird is it that I got beautiful as my anti-spam word??? Cause that’s what you all are!! Just smashing. I am in awe of you, that bod with a chocolate addiction? :)

  23. grace says:

    A photo of Kailani, finally! Did these two tots really came out from you? I mean, you defy the saying that hips (and a lot of areas) widen after giving birth!! Lovely pic.

  24. JHS says:

    BEAUTIFUL!! The three of you are gorgeous, as are the surroundings in the photo. You could be on a commercial for Hawaiian tourism.

    BTW, that photo makes me want to come back to Hawaii. Next time I’m going to lay on the veranda with a drink, though. Last time we did all the sightseeing stuff which was wonderful, but next time I want to relax and feel those beach breezes on my face.

    Voting in this contest is TOUGH . . . all of the entries are great and deserve to win.

  25. Csara says:

    Voted for you! ;)

  26. TopChamp says:

    you’re all so pretty!

  27. Write From Karen says:

    Thanks for playing, Kailani!!! You are just as pretty as your girls and it was FUN to finally see a picture of you!

    I’ll be checking back for your next photo contest!!

    The 51st edition of CoFL is up and running! Have a great week.


  29. Lill says:

    How could I not vote for such a lovely trio? It’s so nice to see what the people we read look like.
    I found this through the Carnival of Family Life #51.
