Celebrating New Life

We LOVE to celebrate family!

One of my favorite things about being a mother is that I never have to stop having babies.  Now that I'm too old to bring new children into the world - my precious daughters are busy welcoming new children into our family.  We are expecting 5 new children this year!  This past weekend we had a baby shower to celebrate the almost arrival of Andrew Jordan Baadsgaard expected in a few weeks.  Girls night out was filled with great conversation, opening presents, going to a movie and out to dinner. I can't wait to hold my new grandson in my arms. (We sure missed you Aubrey.)

"Parents and children should realize that strong opposition will always come against the work and will of the Lord. Because the work (and glory) of God is to bring to pass our immortality and eternal life as a family, it logically follows that the work of the adversary will strike directly at the heart of the home the family. Relentlessly Lucifer attacks the sanctity of life and the joy of parenthood."

Russell M. Nelson, "Set in Order Thy House," Ensign, Nov. 2001, 71
