Many Thanks

I just wanted to thank the people who helped us while we were having Laney. First, our Heavenly Father for making sure she arrived safely. Also my mom and dad for their support in taking care of me and all my kids. Jared's dad also helped so much by making sure the kids got where they needed to go. My very good friends, the Daniali family, who were so awesome to take the girls. I appreciate the friendship we share. I know that God has blessed me with so many good people in my life. Even those angels who work behind the scenes, please know that you are loved.

I also need to mention any of you who kept our family in your prayers, those prayers were felt. I know that my baby and I were preserved because of the love and faith of others.

Thank you to the crestline ward for your caring. I am blessed. I am alive and doing well. Little Laney is in perfect health. I have much to be grateful for . Thanks again.
Delayna Jewell is the fourth and final addition to our family. We are so blessed that she arrived safely and in perfect health. I am excited to have her here and watch her grow. I thank my Heavenly Father for my family, and the joy I get to experience being a mother to these beautiful children.
Katherine, my long time friend, came to the hospital thinking I would have the baby on Monday. It turned out to be a slumber party she will never forget. She held out until the bitter end when I had to have a C-section. I think she was there over 24 hours. What a true friend!. As a side note, Katherine should not be allowed to look this good while I look like crap. Fabulous!
Thanks a million to grandma who was a trooper and was with me the entire labor. She left only to take care of my other children. We love and appreciate you grandma.
After much opposition to having another sister, Gavin beamed with excitement when he held his tiny baby.
The kids came to visit Laney at the hospital on Wednesday. I think they all fell immediately in love with their new little sister.
Daddy got his birthday wish! Laney was born on his special day. Happy birthday to daddy and Laney. Both born on December 30th.
