Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!

I don't even have words to say how thankful I am for this woman! In a world where it seems that many in-law relationships are less than good and in-law jokes abound, I am blessed with the perfect daughter-in-law. Not only is she a great daughter-in-law, a wonderful wife to our son, a patient and loving mommy, a follower of Jesus, but she is my friend. How very blessed am I?!

 This was taken before she even married Drew, when we drug her up mountains and on hikes that never ended and she still went through with it!
The rest of the pictures tell their own story....

Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!
We love you and are so very thankful for you!!!!

Happy Mother's Day

Today we celebrate these 2 ladies for so many reasons! They gave us life. They have loved us unconditionally since before we were even born. They've seen the good, the bad and the ugly (many times) and still love us anyway. They've been our biggest fans and cheerleaders when things are going well. They've been our biggest supporters and encouragers when things aren't going so well. They are always there to listen and offer advice when asked or keep their mouths shut when they probably should offer advice but aren't asked. When each of us joined the other's family, we were loved and accepted just like any other member of the family and for that we are both so very grateful. So, thank you, Mom and Mother, for always being there for us, for teaching us right from wrong, for sacrificing time and energy and sleep and so much more, for being Godly women who live by example, for loving us and for loving our children and grandchildren, and for loving Dad and Daddy.
Happy Mother's Day to our Wonderful Mothers!
We love you and are so thankful for you!

This one doesn't have a date so I'm not sure how old I am here.

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers, but especially ours!

The Big 3-0!

I really, really can't believe that it's been 30 years since this guy came into our lives! He was such a loving, smart, creative little guy and still is all those things (maybe not so little) and so much more! A husband, father (to 4!), brother, pastor, teacher, counselor and a pretty terrific son, to name a few!

Happy 30th, Drew! 
We love you and are so very thankful for you!
Mom and Dad
