Auntie Karin and Nana

We were so blessed to have such wonderful help after Hunter was born. Karin came the day after Christmas. She is awesome! She was super helpful with the kids, the baby, the house...everything. She cooked, cleaned, took the kids to the movies, put things together....the list goes on and on. Karin was truly a blessing to us. I was super sore in my mid-section the time she was here, so she wouldn't let me do anything too taxing. Darin was also able to go to work a couple of the day she was here and she really made sure things went well. The kids love her and I do too! We really missed Auntie Marion, but she was able to see Hunter when they stopped through on their way to Florida a few weeks ago.

 So, Hunter was born the day before Karin's birthday. She kept giving me a hard time saying that we should have waited one more day. Oh, and that she was going to call him "lane" since her middle name is Elaine. Was funny.

I really love this picture. Such a great smile Auntie!!

Since Nana and Papa retired from their store, Nana has more time on her hands. She was able to come for 2 weeks!! She was such a blessing! She would hold Hunter anytime he needed some love! That's what nana's are for:) She was amazing with keeping up with the laundry, cleaning the kitchen after dinner, helping with the kids, and also came to Relief Society with me and one day I drug her all around the mall and wore her out:)

 Calming down the sleepy baby. He could sleep in her arms all day.

The last day Nana was here we had Hunter's blessing in church. We were glad she could be here to share the day with us!

Thanks so much for all your help Auntie Karin and Nana! You made the transition of bringing Hunter home so much easier!!!
