Mother's Day

I am so grateful to be a mom! I can't imagine any job more demanding, time consuming, and tough...yet the most rewarding. There are days when I don't think I can keep going because I might just go insane....but that whisper "I love you" or that tiny little hand holding mine or that beautiful picture hand drawn by a 2 and 4 year old make it all worthwhile. I am so lucky and blessed to have these two little munchkins in my life. I am grateful that Heavenly Father has entrusted them into my care, they have really taught me what joy is!

Happy Birthday Noah!!

Every year I am blown away at how fast the time has gone...this one is no exception.
My little boy is 4 years old!
Sticking out his tongue started early....
We asked Noah what he wanted to do and he said bowling. So we took him to the bowling alley where he bowled in the 80s (with bumpers) and got his first strike!!!
We asked Noah what kind of birthday he wanted and he said Jimmie Johnson. That was a little bit trickier. Basically Noah, Bryan, and Carson wore their Jimmie Johnson shirts and everything else was blue and yellow.
Happy Birthday sweet boy. As the years are flying by, we are so grateful you are in our home. We couldn't imagine a day without monster truck sounds. You've made us happier than we ever thought possible!

Audrey even got a present for Noah's birthday...a girl monster truck, which she was totally thrilled with!

She's here..

My Niece if finally here!!!
Welcome little Natilly Jo.I was able to meet her just a few days after she was born.
It was so nice to spend time with my sister. I never thought we would have kids together since she was "done" before I even started...but I'm sure glad they decided to have another, I'll bet they are too!!!!
She is well cared for with two older brothers that totally adore her. Dallin even informed me that I was choking her when I was putting her pacifier in her mouth!
I can't wait to make one of these for my own!! I made this one for Amber but can't do anything until I find out what we are having. Not finding out really doesn't help with planning....I don't think I will do this again!
