Here are some recent pictures that I've taken of Clara and Meredith. These two are something else! They fight soooo much and it takes all my energy some days to be the referee for them. Meredith knows exactly how to push Clara's buttons and loves to do it. Clara reminds me so much of myself because I definitely let people get to me so I've tried to coach her on how to just chill out and not worry about it. Yeah right! They also love each other so much and can really have fun playing Barbies and dress-up together. I guess this is a normal sister relationship but it's exhausting! I grew up as the middle of 3 girls and I remember fighting often but I didn't know it would start this young. This last picture is how I found Meredith the other day. I thought I'd better take a picture because before I know it, she won't be able to fit on the stairs like that.

I started a food blog and realized how easy it was so I thought I'd start a family blog too. If I knew how easy blogging was I'd have started a long time ago! Just a little background on us:
Ben and I have been married almost 10 years in June! We have 3 beautiful kids, Ethan, Clara and Meredith that I am so lucky to be able to "stay home" with. Ben has been in the Air Force for close to 7 years and is a Captain. Since leaving Logan, we have lived in San Antonio, Dayton OH and now Rio Rancho NM. We miss Utah lots and are hoping to get back there in about a year when Ben's committment with the Air Force is over. I am originally from East Texas and miss it so much! Ben is from Logan, UT but I think I love it there even more (shhhhh don't tell!). I have recently become a consultant for Usborne Books and More and am having so much fun with it. I am going to convention this summer and am excited to get this business going! I hope you enjoy our blog!
