Yes we are still alive!

So I know it has been a long time since I blogged but before you judge me, let me explain what I have been doing.  January we moved to Denver,  I lived there until the end of April when Zach found out he was being transferred to Salt Lake, so I moved to Cedar to have Finnley which happened May 26th.  Zach moved to Salt Lake May 15th.  So my dad flew out the end of April and drove me home just in time for my Uncle's Funeral.  So Zach packed up everything and drove out to Salt Lake and moved in with his brother Dave.  I stayed at my mom and dad's house and went back to Laurie Hansen to deliver Finnley.  I was so glad to have her as my midwife!  I was induced on Thursday morning at 4 a.m. and had a pretty good labor and delivered a 7 pound 8 ounce, beautiful girl at 2:15 p.m.  We named her Finnley Vernon, no middle name and I just heard the name and it grew on me so that's how we got it.  One week later I moved myself and my two daughters to Salt Lake to be with Zach.  We just got into our apartment on the 15th of July, we blessed Finnley in Cedar on the third of July and celebrated the fourth in Kanarraville.  So that is the short version of the last 6 months.  Needless to say I have changed more diapers than I care to count, gotten up in the night for who knows how long, and been pooped, peed, and spit up on a few times......... but what are mothers for right?  I love every day!  I didn't say every minute of every day..... but every day my beautiful daughters bring me more joy and laughter than I thought possible.  I have never been more exhausted in my life but every day I look forward to seeing my kids and wondering what are they going to do today that will amaze me!  So without further ado..... the two most beautiful girls in the world!
