Once upon a time...

I had three little children, ages three and under (two of whom were thirteen months apart), and I was convinced that I was DONE having kids. I was ready to "move on" with my life, and get down to the business of raising the three that I had, so that I could do the "important things" I wanted to do. (Can you hear God sniggering?)

 Then I got to be humbled when I received a Priesthood blessing from my dear husband. In the blessing, Heavenly Father told me that I should NOT prevent other babies from coming to my family, and that the next little one would be a great blessing to me.

And oh, how she has been!!!

 That little one has now grown to the ripe old age of TWELVE, and she's my right-hand woman! She cooks, she cleans, she is organized, and keeps me in line. She is obedient and efficient, and I just can't imagine how my life would be without her. God truly kept His promise to me!


 Thank you for being willing to join our family, and for being the light in our lives that you continue to be. 

I'm so grateful for you, Bon-bon! :-)


  1. She is so beautiful. Looking at pictures of her I kept thinking she has great eyebrows with a natural line, lucky her! Happy birthday to bonnie!

  2. How beautiful! I loved reading about your, Bon-bon! ;) She is a pretty girl. :)

  3. I'm so glad you take pictures--looking at this post and the others makes me so happy to see your family. I can't believe Bonny is TWELVE! Congrats!

  4. I am new here! Just wanted to say hi :)
