Thank You One and All

I want to thank everyone for their kindness and thoughtfulness in wishing me a Happy Birthday. I am grateful for all my friends and family, especially those that called or sent messages.

I am very thankful for my dear wife who posted those wonderful messages and photos of my past. I couldn't ask for a more loving eternal companion, I am glad we can be humorous with each other. Our little girls also made the day very special with handmade cards and many hugs, kisses and birthday wishes for me.

Thank you so much.

Tyler through the years.

Ohhhhhh, just think how cute of a little boy we'd have....oh well I guess it's just not in the scheme of things !

Okay, I'm thinking and hoping that Kirk Cameron was the craze during this time. Tyler, don't hate me but I just had to embarass you just a little bit on your birthday!!!

Happy Birthday Tyler!!

Happy Birthday Tyler!!! I can't believe that you're 34 YEARS OLD!!!! Wow!!! Don't worry all of us girls still love ya despite the grey hairs!!! Anyways, thank you for being such a wonderful husband and father over the past eight years. You are one of the most talented, kind, and ambitious people I know. We hope that you have a wonderful day and know how much you are loved.
Here's a picture of Tyler with his Dad, Gil! I know that Tyler gets many of his great talents from him and loves going camping and working with him on projects.

Here's Tyler with A... he has been the sweetest Dad with all three girls and they love him soooo much!!

On Tyler's 27th birthday, it snowed in St. George, so we spent the day seeing Zion National Park sprinkled with a dust of snow. It's one of our fondest memories...we're looking forward to many more.

Our Tooth Girls (Update)

A's got another loose tooth, front and center, right next to the first one she lost. She'll be singing All I want for Christmas... for sure this year.

H also now has her two front bottom teeth... the same two A is soon to be missing. Cheryl is now feeling the side effects of teeth on nursing and doesn't like it. 8-O Neither A or C nursed into the teething stage.

There's a lot of excitement around our house right now, and it's not because of the holidays.

On Monday, we found out that "A" is losing her first tooth. "A" was exactly six years, three months old on Monday.

She is losing the bottom right front tooth, the exact same one that "H" is getting right now, her first tooth. "H" was also exactly seven months old on Monday.

We're waiting for the loose tooth to become really wiggly, then we'll help it out.

Fun with Family

Usually I don't like to get too personal with my blogs but since it's the Holiday Season I wanted to share what I'm thankful for (even thought it's a little late). I'm so thankful for family during this Thanksgiving. I have three brothers and they all live in different areas but over the past week I was able to see all three of them. I admire each one of them greatly and what they've accomplished thus far in their lives. They have truly followed in my own dad's footsteps. They all have wonderful families whom I adore.

I am also thankful for wonderful in-laws and their own families who are so kind and fun to be with. I'm so thankful to have married into a great family and gained wonderful relationships through it.

At times I've been saddened that I haven't had a sister but when I look at the big picture I've been blessed with a great mother and mother-in-law, wonderful sister-in-laws and three loving daughters so what more could I ask for?

Last but not least, I'm so thankful for Tyler and what a wonderful provider he is for our family. He is so protective of each one of us and is a genuinely hard worker!! Whatever he sets his mind to he can accomplish!! I'm thankful that I can confide in him so much even though at times my complaints can be endless:) Not to be cheesy, but he truly is my best friend!
