Happy Father's Day

I am one of the luckiest girls (since I have three sisters they are just as lucky) to have the father I do. I would have to say that he is the funniest and silliest one out there. One of our favorite games at bed time was called "wrong answer". He would ask a question, if we got it wrong (which was usually) we would be tickled. I remember dancing with him many times in the family room just for fun. I had borrowed his nano once and filled it with my music, he had used it too at this time while working out. When I gave it back I took my stuff off and replaced it with all his. He came up from working out and said "Hey where's all my music," then started singing, "shake it and jiggle it shake it and jiggle it." Not only was he always funny he was always so kind and loving. He was always there during a break up and always gave me so much support. He has such a strong testimony; I can't count the numerous times I saw him praying or reading scriptures growing up. I love that he and Chris have lots of likes in common, they love to talk about cars and go golfing together. Thanks dad for all you do and have done!

Brighton and Chris have the sweetest bond. They are lucky to been able to spend so much time together over the school year as Chris would watch him while I was teaching. Since I am home full time right now Chris has been working more. They miss each other tons and wrestle as soon as Chris gets home. Brighton will bring me the phone and say, "Da" wanting me to call him so they can chat. No one can make Brighton giggle like Chris can. Brighton is already following in his father's footsteps and is obsessed with motor vehicles. If he sees our four wheeler or can am spider he reaches for it and cries until we put him on it. They are so cute together. I know that they will have the best of times as Brighton grows up and is able to do more with his dad. There is such a special love between them.

Thank you for those great memories,I am glad to be your dad. You and your brother and sisters have filled my life with great joy.As the primary children were singing I was missing you all so much. I tried to get Heidi to go up and sing with them, but to no avail. I love you and am very proud of the great mother and wife you have become. Love your dad
