Well, this is it! My very first blog post.
I can start by giving you a little background on my family.
I grew up in LaVerkin, Utah. I am the second out of seven kids. My maiden name is Smith, and I'm a direct descendant of Hyrum Smith.
I met my husband LaMar while attending my first year at BYU where I was persuing a degree in early childhood development.
We were married three months later, and the following year, we welcomed our first child (and only Daughter Sariah, (18) who is currently a Freshman at BYU.
In the years since then, we have added to our family with 9 more children, all boys! I like to call them my "Stripling Warriors." They are Helaman (17) Nephi (15) Moroni (14) Jacob (11) Ammon (9) Malachi (7) Jared (5) Mosiah (3) and Alma (18 months). They are all as incredibly handsome as their father.
In a few months, our family will reach 13 members, as we are expecting our 11 child. Sariah was really hoping for a little sister, but it looks like we will bring our total number of boys to ten when Sam is born at the end of the year.
I am currently serving as the Primary President in our Ward. I have served there for just over three years.
My original reason for starting this blog was to share my recipes and vast knowledge of cooking and other homemaking arts, but just so you know, I will be writing about my family too. They are my life, and everything I do revolves around them. Besides, they are the ones that I cook for most of the time, so I feel like I need to include them too.
( I might just include a little bit of Ward gossip too;)
