Happy 37th Birthday!!

Today Chris turns 37 years old! Instead of listing 10 things about him I am going to ask each member of our family why they love him...

Max-"I love my dad because he's awesome and he teaches me stuff and he helps me to make the right choices and he supports me."

Abby-"My dad is the best dad ever because he cares for me and loves me. I am glad for my blessings and it's all because of my dad and Heavenly Father. He plays with me and has fun with me and loves me."

Afton is a true daddy's girl. She loves to be with him, cuddle with him, talk to him on the phone... everything! She loves it when he gets home and is the first one to greet him with a huge smile and a hug.

Coleman is just happy to be on earth and knows he wouldn't be with out his dad! (hee hee)

Katie- "I just love Chris a ton. The reason 37 sounds so old to me is because he was 22 when we started dating. That's a long time together! I have loved being with him. I love everything about him (almost- you know, no one's perfect- unless you ask his parents!). I am so grateful for who he is and for my life with him. Happy Birthday, Babe. Thank you for everything you bring to my life! XOXO!!"

Happy Birthday old man! :-) I'll tell you one thing I always loved about Chris was his energy. He was one of those people that it was just great being around them because of the great energy they gave off. Hope it's a great day!

Thank you all! I'm actually out of town so this was a real surprise and made my day! I love you Katie, wouldn't have spent the last 15 years any other way.

Happy Birthday Chris!

Chris, you are deeply loved and respected. Since you were a baby you have brought great joy and happiness in our lives. It's hard to believe it has been 37 years but it has. We are so proud that you are our son. Love Dad


Eight was a special number for us because until Chris was born both of us were constantly reminded by the spirit that one more child was to come to our family. we'd get in the car or do something special and count heads, but until Chris came, soneone was missing. I'm serious! That fact was manifest to us in many different ways. I was warned by my Doctor after Karen(our sixth child)was born that I shouldn't have any more children, but we responded to a higher authority and I'm so very thankful we did. I can't imagein life without Chris and his older brother, Richard. I remember his childhood as being the sweetest time of life for our family. I loved him so much and He's still a joy to me. Celebrating your birthday is also a joy. Love, Mom
