Day 3

Your siblings and parents. I realize that this probably just means my siblings and parents, but Mike's family has been so amazing and such a big part of our lives that I wanted to post about them also!  This may be a little out of order but Ill fit everyone in somewhere.

This is Vanessa, the exchange student Mike parents had a couple of years ago... she was so fun and taught us sooo much, the boys still ask about there "sister" Vanessa.
Grandpa and Brax, I don't think that Mike's dad could be a better Grandpa, he is always calling and asking if the boys want to go haul cows or go up to the cabin!  These boys are getting the best farm experience they possibly could, and they have an amazing teacher!  Also I couldn't ask for a better father in-law he treats me just like one of his girls, I am so lucky to have such wonderful in-laws!
This is my dad,  he is such an awesome guy and has over come sooo many obstacle's!  He is a big tease and always keeps me laughing.  Love you dad!!!
These are my beautiful sister inlaws!!! They are going to kill me when they see that I put this picture up.  It is so hard being away from my family, but these girls are always there to talk and wipe my tears when I'm missing my "mommy"  I don't know what I would do without these two.
K I know this is not very appropriate but this is the only picture I could find of my little brother.  It kills me to see him growing up he is my little Joshy Bear!  I love this kid, and hate to see him having to learn things the hard way, but I guess that's just life! Love you Joshy Bear!
This is my Step-father man am I so lucky I get to have three daddies! He is so amazing, and makes my mom so happy which is of course what I have always wanted!
This is my mom! Sigh... I may not have always understood what you had in store for me or that you always wanted what was best for me, but now I do!  Being a mom has really helped me to appreciate all that my mom always did for us, she was always the team mom, always brought donuts after test days, and the list goes on and on!  Love you mom!!!
This is my mother inlaw, Dalyn (my little boy), and my adorable little niece Cali!  Where to begin, this women has taken me under her wing, bad and good and loved me for it all.  When I was sick a couple of years ago and had been in and out of the hospital for about 2 months.   She came out to Salt Lake to bring the kids to visit me I was sooooo sick.  I hadn't been sleeping very much AT ALL... She was exhausted but she talked and talked to me until I fell asleep, and then when I woke up a half an hour later she talked some more!  She has taught  me to be the mother that my children need!  I really don't know where I would be today without her as an example in my life!  I Love you Nancy!

This is my little sister! This girl sure can make me madder than anyone else, but no matter what I still love her! Right now she isn't speaking to me and I'm not really sure why, but it kills me.  People die, accidents happen, and if it ended like this I wold be so heart broken!  So Sarah if you read this post, I love you,  I will not let someone be negative in my life, but I do love you, and always will, no matter what!!!
Loved you then, loved you still, always have, always will!!!
Mike's little brother Kaden!  My boys couldn't ask for a better uncle, he is always putting up with having to take them on the four wheelers, outside, he even came and picked Avery up for school the other day!  He is an amazing athlete and a straight A student, what a good example my boys have!
K I am missing two people, Casey and Austin, my brother in law, and my future brother in law.  We have so much fun when all of the family gets together!

We may not have it all together, but together we have it all!!!
