Bald is beautiful!

Today was the day that we cut little Hunter's hair. His head of hair has been out of control since day one. I have loved his hair so much! He has gotten a lot of attention. In fact, when I was walking down the isle in sacrament yesterday holding Hunter a lady told me later that as I walked with him his hair would kind of "bounce in the wind" with ever step. Dave was home today and we pulled out the clippers and buzzed it all off! I almost cried as I did it but survived! He looks like such a big boy now and it is totally blond instead of all the dark stuff he was born with. A very bitter sweet day. I will post pictures later. Need to go and make dinner for the kids and hopefully get a batch of bread made tonight. Ta ta!

P.S. I called my dad and had him guess who was a bald boy thinking he would guess Hunter and I think jokingly he said, "hm, let me guess...Dave?" Ha ha ha, I told Dave and I don't think he thought it was that funny. Dad really was teasing and it gave me a good laugh!!!!

Me and my sisters.

I think I have the best sisters in the world! I really do! In my family I am the oldest of 6 kids. After me was Spencer and Adam. We were all 1 year apart. After having us three my mom took a little break before having more kids. It wasn't until I was 7 years old that I got my first sister Megan. When I was 9 Lacey was born. Because I was so much older than them we didn't have a lot in common until we were all finally mothers. Now we are best friends and it is awesome to have my sisters as my best friends. Both Megan and Lacey have 2 kids with Lacey expecting her 3rd. It has been great that we have all lived close to each other to be able to help each other and hand out and do things together. During my pregnancy and my health chaos after having my last baby they have been so helpful to me and my family. It is possible that my sister Megan will be moving to Washington in a few months and I am so sad! I know it is what their little family needs to do but I want to be selfish and keep her here. I will miss her! How blessed I am to have such great family. I also have such awesome sisters-in-law....Menolly and Rachelle. My brothers married wonderful girls and I love them too! I found some pictures of us on our wedding days. As sisters we are each SO different but that is what makes us special. Love you Megan and Lacey! Me

My babies...

I know these are "lovely" pictures of me but I was just thinking about all of my babies and how much I love them. These are some pictures I found of me holding my newborns. The first one is the most recent with my little Hunter, the next is with Slater, the next is with Emma, and the last is with Ellie. Can't belive how much they grow and change. I am so grateful that I was able to have children. I have friends and family who are not able to have children of their own and I am so grateful that Dave and I were able to bring 4 beautiful children in to the world. Dave and I were talking last night how blessed we have been to have had healthy children when they were born. None of them ever were sick or had to stay longer in the hospital than needed. They all came home healthy and were born at least a week before their due date. I did have c-sections with all of them and that is a miracle to me that I was able to have my children that way. If I was a pioneer trying to have my first baby we both would have died! What a blessing it is to have children and how I love mine!!! Ellie, Emma, Slater, and are my joy!
