My Second Son. First of all, you should know that this little boy makes me happy every single day. He makes me laugh, he makes me cry, he makes me proud that he chose me to be his Momma. The reason it has taken me so long to get my next post done is that I want to say this right and I hope you understand. When I thought I kinda had parenting figured out a little, Heavenly Father sent this guy. Little did I know. He is full of life and vim and vigor. He can be so sweet and then so feisty and through his 6 short years I have learned and will continue to learn why. Once when Jack was about 2, I prayed and prayed. Why is this boy so crazy and so strong and my answer came as clear as anything. "He needs to be."  He is big and strong and I know he will rise to face any challenge set before him.
Jack has the best heart. He is a defender of anyone who needs defending and makes it known loudly. He loves with all he has and can fight with the best of them. He doesn't like you to be mad but, being mad at him just makes him madder. Does that make sense? I know he will command attention. I know he will lead. I know he is amazing. He is so smart and understands everything going on. He tells me so often that I am beautiful and that makes me feel like a queen.
Jack, hold true to what you know is right and lead away my little boy. I love everything about you!

Tag Man

This is my firstborn. The one who gets most of my experimenting as a mother. This guy is amazing! The Mom of a very dear friend said to me-"Tag has an old soul." This is so true. I am sure when we get to heaven we will find that he is much more "mature" than either of his parents. He is smart and true and honest. He wants to please people and has a very calm nature. He knows the gospel and surprises me constantly with this knowledge. One of his favorite prophets is Captain Moroni and Tag has many of his qualities. He is big and strong. He is a leader for right and people watch and follow Tag.

This year we have watched him play baseball, football and wrestle and he is amazing. It is so fun to be the Mom and get to watch him excel at anything he tries. He is very dedicated and when he commits to something, he commits with his whole heart and body! We have watched as people in the community have been impressed with his abilities as well as his demeanor and we could not be prouder.

Hello and Welcome to our blog! This was at the top of my new years resolution list and what is it, the 5th? Pretty good for me! Mostly I wanted to start this blog so my family living far away can be a part of my boys everyday life, but beware- it isn't always pretty! I named it this because I feel like I am the luckiest Mom in the whole world because I got these 3 boys, but first I got their amazing Dad! Happy New Year!
