Happy Mother's Day!!

I love you Graham, Gregory and Lauren! I am so blessed to be your mother!



I am so grateful for my mom. I love her so much. She is funny, kind and compassionate, thoughtful and sweet. She is always there for me - always. She is a great listener and I know I talk her ear off some days. She has a terrific sense of humor, has great ideas for anything you throw at her, is a yummy cook and is so dedicated to her family. Mike and I are so lucky to have such a caring woman as a mom. My children are lucky to have such a hands on grandma (with so much patience!) She loves the Lord and has taught me that I should never wait to turn to my Father in Heaven for help or guidance. All she has ever wanted is the best for us and we love her so much.



I am grateful to have such a wonderful mother in law, too! Sally is a lover of CostCo, great cell phone plans and family parties. She has always got a great reason to gather all her little chickadees together, which is no small feat now that her 12 have families of their own. She is the first to bear her testimony of the Gospel and lives it to the fullest in her daily life. She is always dolled up and put together. I have never in the 7 years I've know her heard her say a bad word about anyone. She holds a very dear spot in my heart for raising the man I fell in love with.

I hope all moms, moms to be (we know a very cute one named Sheree!) and future moms have a wonderful day!

He has Graham's helicopter in his lap - trying to hide it from Graham. We couldn't get a picture of him looking up from it!
