Far away from the ocean 🌊 today...... outback! Games of the XVI Olympiad memorial. 1956 Torch Relay 🔥
My motherhood est. 2008
My strength renewed daily
My patience tested daily
My gratitude, immeasurable
My love enough to go around
My body, a miracle
My infertility, a distant pain
My scars to motherhood, a reminder
My home, often too loud
My laundry, overwhelming
My husband, my rock
My God, my peace
My writing, my escape
My children, my heartbeats, my grounding , my purpose.
Some of the Baenziger’s/Burketts on this fine Easter Day. (Baenziger is my maiden name for those who don’t know.) Some faces are looking a little food coma-ish. And I have no idea why my niece was frowning in this photo. 😂 She was smiley most of the day. My younger sister Julie is missing in this photo as well as some Taiwanese siblings & spouses. Audrey, Oliver, & Edison are so tall! 🙈😮Gotta love Big families! we will get the them all next time.🌿

We did Easter a little early in our home, because I’m working today, and the big girls spent the week in VA beach with their dad, his girlfriend, and her kids.
The big girls got their baskets this morning, but since they were up at 0600 and decided chocolate made a great breakfast (it is milk and eggs in it, so that makes it acceptable, right? 😂) Shawn couldn’t get any pics. 🤦🏻♀️
Everyone got a new book and a chocolate peanut butter bunny. The girls got some new hair bows, chalk, and a couple Hatchimals each. Mr. Theo got a new ball and some Matchbox cars (his current favorite). We made a big Easter dinner and breakfast, and Sydne helped me make some cheesecake brownies for dessert.
All in all, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had a great April vaca. I even got help with clean up from my toddler who won’t keep pants on.

My family. My everything! It is hard not living close to my siblings, especially during holidays. I know we are ALWAYS welcome to travel to them, but it does get hard sometimes with 5 kiddos! I am so thankful to be so close to my Mom and Dad so we always have somewhere to go! I am blessed with the best fam!
That’s pretty much all the story ✝️
But let us not forget why Jesus endured the cross...for us. All have sinned except Him, the only perfect person EVER hung where each and everyone of us should be daily.
Let that sink in and then remember He defeated death by rising again and will be back some day for those who believe and trust in Him. Are you ready for that day?
Personally, I can’t wait 🙏
The beauty of family is how grounding they are; how they remind you of who you truly are and how much more you can and will be. So I’m thankful for the quality time I do get to spend with them on this holiday weekend.
This quote, by an unknown, I dedicate to them
Happy Easter from our “little” family. ✝️ Thankful our Savior was more than a just a man and is a Risen King! 🙌🏻👑 Could never praise Him enough for all His blessings on me!
He is Risen! ✝️ Loerts family Easter traditions with all the cousins, too much food, an egg hunt, and at least one kid in a bad mood 😆🤷🏻♀️.
Next Easter I will be holding a little man😱🤗🥰🤰🏻👶🏻💙🐣
“I know that my Redeemer lives.
What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, he lives, who once was dead.
He lives, my ever-living Head.
He lives to bless me with his love.
He lives to plead for me above.
He lives my hungry soul to feed.
He lives to bless in time of need.
He lives! All glory to his name!
He lives, my Savior, still the same.
Oh, sweet the joy this sentence gives:
‘I know that my Redeemer lives!’” Happy Easter from our family of ELEVEN! 😱 including two very cranky children. (And let the record show, I just threw this dress and lipstick on my postpartum, unshowered body for the picture and then got back into pjs 😜) #largefamilylife #bigfamilies #happyeaster
Happy and Blessed Easter! God is truly good and full of so much love. What a tremendous reward after a good (and long) season of Lent to enjoy a 65° day full of sunshine and birds chirping! And candy coming out of our ears 😋 Hope you all feel equally as blessed today as I do.

Du chocolat pour déjeuner !!!!
On les a trouvé ben cutes...ils voulaient une fontaine de chocolat, fait qu'ils ont fait leur recherche et se sont rendus compte qu'en mettant un gros 5$ chaque ils pouvaient se la payer 🤣 l'avantage du nombre !
I had great expectations for today and it didn’t disappoint. An uplifting church service. Special prayers for me and my twinnies. Then a lovely meal with family and friends. Oh and the sun has been on point giving everyone that feel good, happy, positive vibe! ☀️😊

Happy Sunday beautiful ones!
