Oh my goodness... thank you April. I haven't checked your blog for a few days and I have to say that reading this post totally made my day. We blessed Berkley on Sunday and had a house full of family. It was a good day (for the most part! ;) I won't go into many details! ;) I need to make a list of things that make me happy. I have so much to be grateful for. Heavenly Father wants us to be happy.
