Happy birthday Mom! Happy birthday Tonia! I wanted to join Anna for the great blogging well wishing extravaganza of wishing you happy birthday and many happy returns of the day.
Mom, you have always given me memorable times in my life and that's why Bregelle and I miss you, if it wasn't for you wanting to take us home and homeschooling me, I would never have seen a turtle lay eggs, caught as many snakes, or read as well as I do. English is still my strongest subject on tests and next to art in school. I blame you for the artists curse (sorry Dad, but I don't think it came from your side of the family). You not only taught me at a young age to draw; which is one of my earliest memories of drawing. I remember sitting in the back of the chapel in church and you showed me how to draw a house. I drew houses that way for many years, I was on about 6 at the time. I can't thank you enough for the unwavoring support you've always given me. I wanted to say thank you and I hope you have the best birthday yet!
Tonia, I hope Ben bought you something nice. Happy birthday to you. I just wanted to say that you are my favorite sister-in-law. I really miss seeing you and the rugrats (that includes my brother). You have been a great inspiration to me since we first met. You are strong, persistent, and really fun to hang around with (despite having more knowledge of Willow). Bregelle and I both miss you and not just because you make us great food when we visit and have adorable kids. Happy Birthday!
