What. A. Year.

What an absolutely CRAZY year. 
We moved 2 times, had 3 beautiful babies, had to say goodbye to our dog Blue... So many ups and downs.
Last New Years we found out we were pregnant, but had no idea what was in store for us. NO idea. 
A few weeks later we thought we were having twins...
And then there were 3.
I feel like the first half of the year was spent hoping and praying that the babies would be ok. It was such an emotional few months. I would kneel at my bed and pray as hard as I could,with tears streaming down my face, pleading with Heavenly Father to keep my babies safe and healthy. The unknown can be so scary. 
I've already posted the story about when the babies were born, so I wont put you through that again. And I dont feel like crying right now ;)

These are some tough kiddos. They've gone through so much already, and as a parent i've experienced feelings of heartbreak and worry that I wouldn't wish on anybody. But I also recognize how incredibly blessed we are. 
How lucky am I to be their mom!?
I'm trying to think of how we spent the second half of 2013, but all that comes to mind is diapers, bottles, burp rags, snuggles, giggles... 
And I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Having to say goodbye to Blue was so hard, and we miss him like crazy. 

Matt's job is going so well, and his company is so good to us. They were so supportive when the babies were born. I'm so grateful. 
This man is amazing. I couldn't have made it through this year without him. I'm so proud of him and I'm not exaggerating when I say he's an incredible dad. 
We spent a quiet New Year's at home, putting babies to bed, curling up to a movie, and barely making it to midnight. 
I doubt we will ever have another year as crazy as 2013 was. So bring it on 2014.

Blessing Day!

Yesterday was such a special day for us... Blessing day! We were able to bless them in our home, which was so nice and intimate. Matt is such an amazing father and did such a great job. I haven't really been able to attend church for about 8 months, which is crazy. I couldn't go at the end of my pregnancy, and now we obviously can't take the kids together.So Matt has gone, and I actually went today, but I really missed feeling spirit like that. And I sure felt it last night. I love my little Eternal Family.

Catch Up Pics!

Decided to post a few pics from Oct-now. Im so lucky to get to stay home with these cool kids everyday.
Jones has the hair, Sterling most likely has a bow, and Cash is the big guy ;)
 Our least favorite day... Shot Day

 My friend Adria bought them these outfits. I die everytime I see them wearing them. Even though the fanciest place they go is our living room
 My sister Ali got them little outfits with these beenies. The onesies are still a little too big, but I LOVE these beenies. So. Dang. Cute. And no clothes makes it even cuter
