January brought lots of change to our home. February, Braxton tried to die on us and we would not stand for that! March was Nana's birthday and we started our Temple fun with the Logan Temple. April was loaded with date nights and love. May was Mother's Day -- one of the best days of the year. June was my birthday month and my boys never disappoint. We moved to Layton and began our journey there. Lagoon season passes were just what we needed for good weekend breaks. July was the Nef Reunion. Auntie and Uncle were here and I found a baby! August was birthday month for my studs and the beginning of school - at a new school for the three youngest. Oh, they are so brave. September was Colton's first school dance. October was Halloween and lots of candy. November was Thanksgiving and Black Friday for this Mama. December has been Christmas and the beginning of counseling for my babes. In there were three moves for the boys and I, a cancer diagnosis for the Nana, new schools for the boys, doctor appointments for Braxton's recovery, lots of tears, lots of laughs, and more blessings than I can count.
2016 was a year full of trials. It was also a year full of triumphs. We are so blessed. I love my boys more than words can express. We are choosing joy on this journey, and because of you it is much easier to do so.
