It is absolutely a BEAUTIFUL day here in Utah. It is snowing and it's really glorious. I woke up this morning with such a feeling of thankfulness. I have come a long way in the last couple of years. I have to say that I am feeling more me again. I can definitely see a huge difference in my children at home. I can see happiness in their eyes again. It's been a journey and I can see that our trials have truly made us stronger. 

I am so FORTUNATE in that we are going to have a new baby in our family. I told Gentry to take LOTS of photos. You can never take too many photos. I had her send them to me so I can print them out on my Canon PIXMA iP8720 printer. I like to print them often, so I can TRY to keep up. 

This was is giving me the biggest gift. I love so much that Gentry and Devan live close to me. Their baby boy will be born in late April/early May. Well, you never know.  I am so going to love being his grandmother. This photo was taken today of Gentry at their house. LOTS of beautiful snow!!!!

Gentry was 20 weeks along in this photo. After two miscarriages, it truly makes you so aware of the gift of her being pregnant again. 

This is what our morning has looked like. Thank goodness for google, and learning you can use a hair dryer to loosen lug nuts. Oh yes, Zach is really stepping up to be the man around here. McKay had a huge nail in her tire. He helped her since she has work today in Provo. Yes, McKay now works at BYU at the Creamery. It's quite the place for the BEST ice cream in Utah. I shall stay away from the place since I LOVE ice cream. 

I am loving that we are just a team. I love that we bonded together to figure it out. I am learning to take it day by day and finding I can do things that I have never done. It all works out somehow.
