We were so blessed to have our family come to Vernal for Brielle's baby blessing. Family is amazing. It was wonderful to spend time with them. Clint gave Brielle a beautiful blessing! We have been so blessed with 3 wonderful kids. It is special moments like these that I sit back and am so thankful for all we have!

Trail's idea of canning pears (don't we wish it were that easy?)

Trail happily canning! We did tons of canning, it has been my stress relief and super rewarding!

Our 1st Day back to church (wow 3 kids, I still can't believe it sometimes)

With three kids there aren't too many dull moments, hence the not blogging for a while. The adjustment hasn't been easy, it is a struggle to find balance and time for myself. I find myself getting frustrated and then something will happen to make me laugh. The other day it seemed like I had been after the kids all day, cleaning up mess after mess that my mischevious 2 year old was making. Trail and I were in the bathroom and all of a sudden the bath toys spilled out of the container onto the floor spilling water everywhere. I said, "O Man" and Trail busted up laughing. If you haven't heard him laugh it can be very contagious. So we sat on the floor and laughed together. Laughter is the best medicine, it physically lightened my load! So my advice to any tired, down trodden Mom - find something to laugh about!
