Stella on her blessing day. She was blessed on March 28, 2010 by her dad! It was a beautiful day. Stella wore my blessing dress! She looked absolutely adorable! I am so thankful for everyone who came and supported us in her big day!
Janette took this picture and I love it!! She is so talented! I am so thankful for Todd and his worthiness to bless our baby! He gave an incredible blessing. I am also thankful to all of the men who were worthy to assist Todd in blessing Stella. Stella is very blessed to have so many great examples in her life.
Grandma Kay with Stella. I was so grateful my mom saved my blessing dress for Stella to wear. It was such a special day! Thanks mom for all of your help/doing it all! My mom is always so amazing to help me whenever I need her. She practically did all of the food preperation while I fed and took care of Stella. It is because of her that I am so organized and have to make a list for everything I do. She made sure I had everything I could possibly think of to make Stellas blessing day so special.
Grandma Belnap, Grandma Kate, Stella, Rikki and Brody.
We were so happy that Todds family could all travel to spend this day with us! On Saturday we had an incredible Easter egg hunt (Thanks Grandma Kate) Our kids got so much fun stuff that I didn't even have to buy them anyhting for Easter!! It was so fun to spend the weekend with Todds family. I always love hanging out with his sisters and my kids just can't get enough of their grandparents. I am so thankful to them for the incredible son they raised.
I love this picture of the boys! They are becoming the best of friends and are keeping me so entertained! With Todd working out of town life has been pretty hectic and I definetely feel for single moms! It sucks! It has made me so thankful for a husband who ALWAYS jumps in and helps me usually without even being asked! Although it is crazy sometimes I am so thankful I get to be a mother! At night after the boys have gone to bed and I get to just hold and stare at Stella it reminds me how lucky I am to be a mom and how much I love these sweet spirits. I love my children more than I ever imagined I could! They are my biggest blessing!
Being a "new" mom and my emotions going crazy I am so thankul for my family and my friends! The Lord new what I needed in my life right now and I am so grateful for everyone who was willing to take my kids for me, or tell me I look good when I know I don't..YET! I will get there again! I am thankful for my friends who keep track of my kids when we are at the park and I am attempting to nurse AND watch chan and Brody. I feel so blessed to have a Heavenly Father who loves me and answered my prayers when I felt like I couldn't be a good enough mom to all 3. He has sent me such special people to be there for me when I need the help. I feel so grateful for all of the examples my kids are going to have in their lives and know that I am definetely not raising them on my own. I have more support than I could imagine!
