It was something I dreamed about and looked forward to ever since I can remember...and probably even before that.
Being a mother is to me the greatest calling any woman can have on this earth. There is nothing more noble or brings more joy than being a mom. There is also nothing that brings more heart ache and suffering than those three little letters m-o-m.
One thing is for certain...once that precious little newborn is placed in your arms, your heart is never the same.
I feel so grateful to have been blessed five times over with that experience. But the first time is always something that each mother always treasures and never forgets. In the very moment that sweet little bundle arrives into this world, you transform from being just a woman, into becoming somebody's mother. Thank you Skyler for making me a mother! Your mother. ♥ I love you bud! ♥
He spent a lot of time doing this over the years!
Hockey - He is a brilliant ice skater and played hockey for the Northern Utah Independent team.
Trip to Hawaii ~ (one of them) - He has been twice already and is going again on Thursday to go work for two weeks!
Skyler served an honorable mission for our church to the Indianapolis, Indian mission for two years. If I had more time I would post some of his Indiana pictures. Maybe later....
He has been on THREE cruises (yes THREE! and I haven't even been on one! There is something wrong with this picture!)
They have not always been the best experiences.... the first had some issues, the second he was sick the entire time, and the third ALL of his things were stolen off the beach (cell phone, IPOD, wallet, shoes, credit cards, money, driver's license, passport, etc!) Now if he would take his Mother with him, then maybe she could help prevent these things from happening!
Sky has always been daring and adventurous and loves to do crazy things like scuba-diving, cliff diving, and even SKY-DIVING! I wish I had some photos of those crazy antics...on second thought, maybe I don't!
I could not have asked for a better firstborn! Skyler has always been such a great example for his younger brothers, which is good because they look up to him so much. I really like having him around at home and it's so nice to be able to talk to him as an adult now. It's so cool...he really talks back! No grunts or caveman-ease anymore! I love it! I just wish he was able to be home more often!
Thanks for being such an amazing son Skyler! I ♥U!
He's gone a little to the dark side as of late... lol!
Happy Birthday to a great son and wonderful brother!
We ♥ you!!!
But most of all... thanks for making me a mother! ♥
