Happy Anniversary




On this day, in 1957,
Jim and Pat were married in the Salt Lake temple.
It was the day that my family began :)
I'm sure that they had no idea what they were in for...lol.
Nannette was born first, which is fitting.... she's usually the first
to cry, followed shortly by her little sister!
Bret was next.... weiging in at 10 lbs. and 12 ozs.
He has a heart as big as anyone I have ever met. He has stepped in
and taken care of all of us the best he can, poor guy!
Then came Bart... born upside down, and being Bart as only he can from
then on out. He seems to get away with things just because it's him!
Blair was next. His big brown eyes, and quick smile
(with dimples) Let him get away with alot..lol. He was quiet too,
that helped! Sorry about punching you in the eye when I was 6...
but frankly, you deserved it!
Then came the "accident"... lol... sadly I mean that literally!
(Not in my conception and birth) Because I have been one consistant
accident after another ! Sorry mom and dad!
Broken everything, stitsches, car wrecks, etc. etc.
Anyway...
Thanks mom and dad for my forever family.
Thank you for teaching us right from wrong,
for the joy in serving others,
and for your fantastic examples.
You helped shape us into the people we are.
I'm so proud to call you my parents.

I miss you.
