Happy Birthday Parker!

Happy 7th Birthday Parker! We love you so much and you have brought so much joy into our lives with your bright smile and your funny wiggly ways! You are a blessing to have in this family. I remember the day you were born, for some reason your heart rate kept dropping and Mommy and Daddy were very scared, Mommy kept asking Heavenly Father to please bring you into this world safely and her prayers were answered. You were such a skinny little chicken when your were born but you loved to eat! You are always been a bright little star and are always kind and loving to the people around you. It has been such a joy watching you grow and change and now you are 7! This is a very important year for you, this year you will prepare for your baptism when you turn 8. We love you so much and you are our "Son Shine"

Birthday Boys!


Well he finally caught up to me for now! I love him so much! He is my strength. I can not imagine life without him. He is a wonderful loving and caring husband and father, and would do almost anything for us! I feel so lucky to have such a dedicated husband. We have been through so many ups and downs together and grow stronger together as we face our trials. Ryan goes along with all the things I make him do (because if you really know Ryan he is a hermit at heart!). How did I get so lucky? He makes me laugh, and is really patient will all the teasing I do. What a great friend! He doesn't mind sharing his birthday with his Sister and Son. I love you Ryan! Happy Birthday!


I am so happy to have you for a son! You have brought so much joy into our lives. I can't believe that you are 9 today! I remember when you were born and how blessed I felt to be given you and still I feel that way today. You were born at 10:07 am April 1st , 2000 and today around that time I found my self in tears remembering the joy and happiness I felt when you were born. I know that you were meant to be in our family! You are such a sweet boy who goes out of his way to bring joy into others lives. I know that you have struggled and I am so proud of you for trying your hardest to overcome your fear and anxiety. I am so proud that you go to church with me and are a good example to your brother and your friends. You are my "Son" Shine! I love you!

Love, Mom
