Our wedding day

The night we got engaged :)

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to me and Jason!! 4 years ago today we were married, and I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband, a best friend, and someone to always count on no matter what. I think Jason and I are a great match. We really balance each other out. Jason tells it like it is, and he helps keep me in check! And I do the same for him. We take care of each other and I've noticed that every year it seems like it just gets better. I love you Jason. I adore you and you are so handsome inside and out! You mean everything to me.

Happy Birthday Angela! (Feb. 12)

Angela and Drea - Christmas time - 2008

Happy Birthday sis!! Angela's birthday was this week, on Tuesday - the day after our grandma's funeral (which I will write about later) so you can imagine how hectic the last week and a half have been. And being the clever girl she is, she hacked into my blog for my birthday and made my day and week by writing some pretty sweet things about me. So I wanted to write some things about my great sister for her birthday week! (Sorry Ang this is a little late, but I think you understand!)
  • She has always been "the peacemaker" in our family - always trying to make things right.
  • She has an infectious laugh and if it's late and she's hit her "wall" she can't stop! It makes me laugh too! haha
  • She loves her family and would do anything for them.
  • She has the 2 cutest kids in the world and is the best mother!
  • She has always been such a great example to me and her family as a person and mother.
  • She has a very strong testimony of the gospel and it shows.
  • She is not only my sister, but my best friend.

I hope you have a great time going out with Christian, and I'm glad Silvia finally got there safe! Happy Birthday Ang. I love you lots! Thanks for being such a great sister to me!

Happy Birthday Drea!

OK, so this is probably not quite right, but this is Angela, Drea's sister. She gave me her username and password a little bit ago for something and it stuck with me, so I've signed on as her so I could get the message across. Happy Birthday Drea!! Drea has been sick for several weeks now, off and on. She was finally starting to come out of it when it hit again. Whatever it is, it's sure being stubborn to her - and the medication, though may be helping, makes her stomach churn. But even though she's down and out on this special day, we all love you Drea. So here's a quick tribute to you, Drea.

  • She's alway's got a smile that will warm up any winter day!

  • She's very successful at everything she does, but only because she's put her mind to it and worked hard for it!

  • She makes other people happy with her genuine caring sense

  • She has a natural mothering nature that many children have been touched by.

  • She's honest and direct, but very kind-hearted and

  • She's beautiful from inside to out

So Happy Birthday Drea! Hope you feel better soon so you can enjoy YOUR special day - even if it is on another day! You've touched many people by coming into this world so it wouldn't be the same for any of us without this day! Love you!
