What a wonderful life...

I am grateful for my beautiful family. I have the great fortune of being a part of a wonderful family, with great brothers and sisters (yes-that includes my in-laws too) and lovely parents (and in-laws) who show love and friendship constantly. I also am extremely lucky to have landed such a man as my Daniel and together create a family of our own. I am in love with our little red headed babies. They are so fun to watch grow and discover their world. It really is difficult to find words that properly describe my feelings about being a mother. I love it-and it makes me kinda crazy-but I love it. Marston is so sweet with Hazel. Every morning he wakes up and the first thing he says is "baby?" and we have to find Hazel and make sure she is alright. He is growing like a weed. Loves to jump, wrestle, throw balls, and play with trains, planes and automobiles. Hazel is cooing already. She is getting into a nice routine and smiles a lot. Really really sweet. She looks at you with a look that she is knows so much and just can't say it. It's amazing. I have much to be grateful for. I have a warm home, I have a refrigerator with food in it, I have a car, I have a husband that has a job that provides enough for me to be a stay at home mommy, I have a healthy family, I have the gospel. What a wonderful life! 

Brooke took Hazel's newborn pictures. She is 4 days old here. 

Marston loves to play in my flower boxes but always needs a good wash down after. 

Daniel turned 28 this year. 
I sent Daniel and Erik to Lowe's for our Christmas tree this year while I took a nap. Teeheehee!

Started running again. Feels wonderful! 

Marston ready for church.

Cute Hazel!

We met Ben and Telia in San Francisco.  Our boys love each other.

Trying to get Christmas pictures was a bit of a mess. This is one of the best...
