Coming to Help + Being Related to Us = SLAVE LABOR

SOO if you come to help us in Cottonwood with the baby and family YOU can expect....
to get very little sleep be extremely tired
sleep on the couch with a crying baby
work from sun up to sun down ...IN the HOT SUN
Helping us find a solution to our small house and 5 KIDS
(equals a new storage shed out back)
HOWEVER...we will be working right along side you
AND we will make sure you are fed!!!
Anyone else want to come?
~
THANK YOU: Uncle Scott (who came up 3 days to help Dan put up the shed), Aunt BooBoo (who took her vacation days to help for a week, and comes up every other weekend to help), MoM S (who came for a week shift after the baby was born, and comes up when her schedule allows), MoM and DaD H (for driving from California and staying over a week, after the baby was born...and coming up with, and putting into action, the postpartum depression action plan) and LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST Aunt Cara Mommy (who has SAVED our family, I have not had a day solo yet b/c of her, she has sleepovers with the baby...and the list goes on)
THANK YOU, THANK YOU for being our "slaves" and helping us SAVE OUR FAMILY!!!
* I cannot even begin to mention the support I have received from very good friends, I am so so blessed

Hey, girl! Wish I was close enough to help physically, but rest assured that MANY prayers are being said for you! Love you!

Hey you just use them while you have them. That's so nice to have family to help (they love it too, I know this cause I love helping my family with their little ones) I love others to have babies so I can steal them and love them! (well you know what I mean) your so nice yourself to let them help!!! You are a wonderful mamma!

You have been on my mind so much lately. Are you feelin' light yet? Hope? A lightened heart? If not, rest assured that it is around the corner. If so, know our prayers are being answered.

Love you, friend!
