Today is Brock's 10th birthday. I can't believe that my "baby" is in double digits! This year, instead of a party with lots of friends, he chose to take his two best buds, Kain and Cade, to the Komet's game. Chuck (and his best friend, Steve) took them and they had a great boys night. It was the easiest party I have ever had, for sure! While they were doing that, we girls went to the Peony Pageant and had a great time. The first two pictures were taken before the game and the last picture was taken by Steve on his phone at the game. You can imagine Deanna and I getting that picture sent to us during the pageant. We were both cracking up at these kids. Honestly, they were the best kids EVER. I wouldn't even have known they were at our house. They are just great kids and they get along so well. Brock has made us so proud and we are glad he had a great day with his "buds" to celebrate. Happy Birthday, Buddy! Also, if you would be willing, click here and leave Brock a comment on his blog. That would be an awesome gift for him. Cade already posted a birthday wish on there. Just click on "comments" and leave him a birthday greeting if you would like. THANKS!!!
JJ and Mike never forget our kids and this birthday was no exception! Right on time, Brock's present was in the mail when he got home from school. He could hardly get inside fast enough to open the present. You can can only imagine how thrilled he was when he discovered a Lebron James jersey inside! He had it on within 10 seconds! Thank you both SO much for loving my kids as you do...we appreciate it and you will never know how special it makes them feel! Enjoy the video. I learned that I can't turn my camera when I'm making a video because I can't rotate it afterwards. I guess you all will just have to turn your computers on their sides to see this one! :0)

Here is Brock getting ready to say his part. As you can see, he can hardly hold back the excitement.
Brock's friend Nick (his mom is one of my blogging buddies). He is a great speaker and did really well tonight.

*They ROCK as grandparents!!!
*They always took me camping when I was growing up and those are still some of my favorite memories!
*They always welcomed my friends into our home and treated them like family.
*They always forgave me when I made mistakes (and still do!)
*They love my husband as though he were their own son.
*I always knew that they were proud of me and believed that I could do anything that I set my mind to.
*They are hard workers and I have learned the value of hard work from them.
*They almost never miss their Saturday night "dates." :0) SO CUTE!!!
*They still say "be careful" when I am going out of town (even though I am 35 years old!)
*They rarely miss any of the kids' events.
*They would do ANYTHING for Chuck, the kids, or me!
Mom and Dad - I love you so much and I really can't thank you for all you have done and continue to do for me. You are the best parents ever!!! Love you bunches!!

This is the most touching and inspiring video ever...
One day, a son asks his dad "Daddy, would you like to run a marathon with me?" The father says "yes." And they run their first marathon together. Another time, the son asks his dad again, "Daddy, would you like to run a marathon with me?" The father says "yes son." One day, the son asks his father, "Daddy, would you run the Ironman with me?" The Ironman is the most difficult triathlon ever (4 kms swimming, 180 kms biking, 42 km running?) And the dad says, "yes". The story looks simple until you watch the following clip. Just amazing, how much can love be.... ?

This is the hall. Chuck painted the hall on Friday and I am in love with the color. I wish you could see it better in this picture.
