Happy Birthday Mom and Dad

Happy Birthday to this pretty "Lady"!!
She LOVES my boys!
 And they LOVE her!
 And HIM!!
He's always been a goofball....and we couldn't be happier about it!

I really have the BEST parents in the whole wide world!  My mom is the most kind, selfless and caring woman I know.  She has taught me what it is to be a good mom and as I watch her I wish I could be half the woman is.  She inspires every single day and hope that she know just how much I love and appreciate her.  She is my hero.  She's been through so much in her life and chose to be the bigger person. She always forgives and loves the Lord with all her heart.  She always makes extra cute things for her visiting teaching lessons for me.  She has ALWAYS done her VT faithfully!  She loves and plays with my boys and spoils them rotten!  She tells, me, "It's my privilege as a grandmother!" She nurses my plants back to health and taught me how to cook.  She makes the BEST cinnamon rolls in the world and EVERYONE who has had one will quickly agree.  They are so good, she used to sell them!  I have her hands.  She loves the color pink and always has her toe nails painted.  She's always excited to share whatever "new" thing she's discovered, purchased or learned with me.  We talk about 5 times a day and if she hasn't heard from me in a few hours she'll always comment that she hasn't heard from me in a while!  :)  She is so kind and is always encouraging me to do the little things for Coby.  She takes the boys every Friday for a sleepover or for a little date night with Coby.  She always watches the boys when Coby and I escape for a few days.  She loves to read and always studies, really studies the scriptures.  Oh...I could go on and on!  I just love this LADY and I feel so blessed to have her as my mom!

My dad has always been one of my best friends.  I remember having to call him at work every single day for about an hour when I was going to school in Provo.  He is always up for anything and tries to make the best out of every situation.  Life hasn't always dealt him a fair hand, but he always chosen to make "lemonade".  He is SO funny!  He's always ready for an adventure and when I say adventure I mean...he's crazy and will try to catch an alligator with his bare hands...take it home, put it in the bathtub and try to keep it as a pet!!  TRUE story!  He loves ALL reptiles and used to bring blue racers on his way home from work in his socks to show us in our backyard.  He loves practical jokes, getting dirty and anything outdoors.  He writes amazing poetry and the BEST talks EVER!  He always memorizes every one and delivers an amazing talk!  I wish he's be a public speaker because he'd be AMAZING at it!  He loves sports of any kind!  His favorites are golf and basketball.  Infact, one of the criteria for marrying was that they had to "Play ball."  It didn't matter what kind of ball...just as long as they were an athlete!  He works hard, harder than anyone I know.  He gives 110% all of the time and is not usually recognized for it.  I get my love for any kind documentary films, especially crime and animal, from him.  He's always treated me like his closest friend and I hope he knows just how much he means to me!
