Daddy everybody needs a good daddy and I am so thankful that I have the best one. He is always supportive and willing to teach. He always answers my silly questions and I admire him for his confidence and strength. He truly is my hero.

Mommy I love my mom! People say they see her in me all the time and I can’t think of a better compliment. My mother is the most loving, caring, giving, talented person I know. She has such a strong testimony and she is a wonderful example to everybody.

Jennifer I love my sister. I am pretty sure I would be sitting at home crying 24 hours a day missing my family so much if it weren’t for her! I am thankful she lets me sit on her couch and rough house with her babies. I love when she calls me excited about a craft idea. I love my sister! I love that she supports me at work and will come to some of my activities. Thank you Joe for letting me hang around and invade your home. You are a great father and I can see the love your family has for you.

David makes me laugh! I love him. I love that he will let me talk his ear off when I am on my way home from work (HANDS FREE OF COURSE!!). He is so smart and is going to go far! I love Amanda! She is a great sister to have in the family. She is going to be a great mother and I am extremely thankful she takes good care of my brother….

Christopher The knight! I am thankful for his example to me. He is valiant, trusting, SILLY, and nice to everybody. Sometimes it is hard to do that and he does it so well. I am also thankful he lets me talk to him on my commute.

Elder Muggins who probably hates me for not sending as many letters. I VOW TO BE BETTER! I am so thankful and proud of Michael for serving a mission. He has grown so much and I can’t wait to see him IN A WHILE. He is so smart and of course makes me laugh. My whole family makes me laugh! Michael seems to attract people. You can’t help but want to be around him.

JJ, Jon, Jonny (not sure what the current correct name is!) I love my JJ. The baby of the family. He is so ethusiastic and smart and WILD. I love how excited he will get. Ilove when he calls me to tell me something and I have to slow him down. I love the frequent texts I get from him. They make my day! I LOVE JONNY!

Ashlee and Ethan I love my babies! They make me laugh and feel needed. I love when they scream my name when I come over or even better when they scream because I am leaving. I love their hugs! I love when Ashlee says she loves me with (insert anything) on my head. I love Ethans cuddles and how he wants me to flip him all the time. I love how they think the only way to wake me up is to lick my face (fake sleeping!) They are so cute and loving!

Baby Gigi Even though I do not know if you are a niece or nephew, I still love you! I am pretty sure I will be your favorite aunt! Another baby to spoil 🙂 WOOHOO!!!

Baby Helga Ashlee called you Helga once…. I love you too! I cant wait to spoil you rotten and paint your nails with Ashlee and play princesses!

I am so thankful for the family I have! I am lucky… I have said it before but the Lord truly has spoiled me. I am thankful for the gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that helps lead me in my life. I am thankful to have modern day prophets to guide us in this crazy world. I am thankful for the Book of Mormon and the Bible that always seem to speak to me when I need to hear something. I am thankful for the power of prayer and the comfort and answers I recieve. I am truly thankful today.

My after thought… I have been awake since 4:00am which means I won’t get a nap today at Jen’s home! The kiddos lick my face when I sleep… Might have to drive home for a nap!

I am a conservative, slightly old-fashioned crazy girl. I love to read, write, sew, scrapbook, cook, bake, do crafts, enjoy nature, take my car off-roading, ride my bike, and just stay busy. I sometimes say I want a lazy day BUT I hate not having anything to do which means I frequently stretch myself too thin. I am the Life Enrichment Director at an assisted living facility. I love being around the elderly population. They are such amazing people who have so much to offer and teach. I also love the little guys too... I love being around kids, especially my nieces and nephews! In December of 2019 I was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation that quite literally may have been a life changing diagnosis. I went from feeling like I was crazy. To maybe having answers.
