A Shout Out

I'd just like to send a shout out to all my sisters and my mom! Mom, Katie, Michelle, Sarah, Heather, Tiffany and Chelsea. You are all awesome. With everything going on this last week, (babies being born and some long days of work), I have just been thinking about how difficult life really is, but how great you all are with handling it. Katie takes wonderful care of her own 5 children, and her brother-in-law's children as well. She always has a smile and is so selfless. Michelle sacrificed so much to move to Rexburg to take care of her sister-in-law while her in law's served a mission. She is giving, kind, and a great mom. Sarah has moved so many times in the last few years that I have lost count. She is always patient and supportive of her husband and wants to give her kids all that she can. Heather has been through so much to bring her twins into this world. She has struggled and overcome every situation thrown in her path. She is a hard worker and a loving wife. Tiffany endures so well. She is a mother of three and is always willing to improve. She is one of the greatest people I know. She is humble, honest and motivated. Chelsea. I couldn't ask for a better sister-in-law. She is kind and never leaves anyone out...including me. She is funny and can make anyone smile. She is good to my brother and good to all around her. Patient, smart, hard working, and I know she is all ready a great mom. I've seen her soothe her baby and it's incredible. My mom is incredible. She is so busy and always finds more time to do things for her husband and children. She is a wonderful mother, grandmother, wife, daughter-in-law and so much more. She works hard, plays hard, laughs hard, and does so well to enjoy life even when it is extremely difficult. So here's to the women in my family! Thanks for being such great examples to me. To my nieces and nephews, never forget how lucky you are to have such great moms. And to my brothers-in-law and my brother...don't ever forget how lucky you are to be married to such amazing women who love and serve you every day.

Thanks Snookie! You are pretty amazing yourself you know. Thanks for putting up living with us here at home for so long. It will be so hard to turn you over to Devin to love and care for you full time in just a few SHORT weeks, but I know he will do just that-take really good care of you. Love you Lucy!
