Happy Birthday, Brent

Today is Brent's 27th birthday.  Goodness, how is that possible???  When I did his first birthday post on the blog he was having his 23rd birthday.

He is a wonderful young man.  He is such a happy guy.  He is always so incredibly positive.  He loves movies--he is definitely the one I check with to see what his dad and I should go see.  He is a hard worker.  I am so excited that he will graduate from BYU next April.  He has worked hard. Some day there will be a lucky young woman in his life.

So how about for his 27th birthday I post 27 pictures:

Heidi was so excited when he was born:

At three months.  Heidi loves the little bit of drool on his chin ; )

This was a month before his first birthday.

Eating his first birthday cake:

One of my favorite shots of him:

With me at Christmas 1987.

With his brother, Stephen--one of my favorite pictures:

Another favorite, with his dad at the park:

Christmas with Heidi:

Preschool picture.  Isn't he a cutie???

Helping his dad right after Hurricane Hugo.

Another one of my favorites--with his brother Neal at Niagara Falls.

I remember when he had a surprise party in Missouri.  It was so fun.

With Heidi and Kyle before they head off for their trip to Disneyland.

Fun times at Christmas:

So excited the day his mission call came:

This picture still makes me smile:  "See you in two":

His birthday in the mission field.   So glad he had a cake!!!!

Graduation from LDS Business College.

With his nephew, Drew, in Hawaii:

This one always makes me smile.  Look at those cute kids and their daddy.  I'm so happy the kids are all back together again.  They'll have the best time!!!

I so love this picture that Macy took.  

He was so supportive to Kyle while Kyle was on his mission.  

Had so much fun when we ran our first half-marathon together.  He is such a great runner--I really wish he was running my full marathon with me!!!!

Love this boy!!!

A mother couldn't be any more blessed than I have been to have the privilege of raising this young man.  He has taught me so much and is such a blessing to our family.


SIDENOTE:   I ran 22 miles yesterday and IT WAS UGLY.  The first 20.8 miles were fine and then I had a really hard time.  I know part of the problem was my posture--I really have to work on it.

Happy Birthday to Brent!
Keep up the running! I don't think I could go two miles, let alone 22!

Brent is so nice! I hope it's a great birthday for him!

Any running over a few miles gets ugly for me! Ha!
