Grateful for all of my family

This is a picture of my aunt Marlynn, my sister Crystal, and me at the Angels game last summer. I grew up loving the Angels because my dad was such a huge fan. Being at the game last year with my aunt(who is my dad's beautiful baby sister!) and my sisters and their families is one of my favorite memories of that trip. (And the fireworks show was awesome!)

It is my Aunt Marlynn's birthday today. I have always felt very close to her and my cousins. I loved growing up with all of them. One of the hardest things of living far away is not getting to see them as often as I would like. This summer we rented a cabin in the mountains and got to all be together to play games and just hang out. I loved it!

Here are some things I love about Marlynn:

1. She is a fabulous mom! She has 5 great kids who are all amazing! Seriously!
2. She is an awesome beautician. I always have her cut my hair when I go home.
3. She is always doing something for others. She is one of the most generous people I know.
4. She is real and genuine.
5. She has always been there for me.
6. She is gorgeous!!
7. I want to be like her when I grow up!!

I am so grateful for the wonderful family that I grew up in, and the ones I gained through marrying Jeff. I feel so very blessed.

Thanks Emily. You are sweet! They both live in California and I am always amazed at how much darker they are than I am. :-) Guess you need to see sun to tan, ha ha!
