thankful


brooke (4) and trevor (9)
I had someone say to me the other day
"your kids are really good kids"
And I can't help but think that even though they all have been/are/will be teenagers
and we pray non-stop thru those teenage years because of them

truly, Brad and I are among the most blessed of all the parents ever to live on this earth.

Yeah... I think your kids are pretty rad. Especially that oldest one. And boy oh boy is he attractive!!! Maybe you should give him my number!

You know that you and Brad are the reason your kids are so great right?

hahaha! Not necessarily so, Gretchen! When Trevor (our oldest) was 2, (he was an amazingly easy toddler) he'd lay his head on Brad's shoulder during the sacrament. I'd look around at all the toddlers giving their parents problems and think, "why don't they teach their kids? we sure are good parents". Then we had Brooke. (sorry Brooke) She'd wait till the most inappropriate time, then scream bloody murder - just to see everyone's reaction. "teaching" had nothing to do with it. She was a STINKER at that age! But truly, we were blessed with kids who want to do right. (Just like your darling little ones ... LOVE reading about them and seeing their pictures!)
