So lucky to have parents like you

I was uploading some photos to the computer and stopped when I saw these three pictures. I couldn't help but stare at them for quite some time, and honestly I was filled with such love for my parents that I began to get teary eyed.
You can see the love that my parents have for my grandson. They are like this with all the kids! These two have so much love in them that it literally bursts when we are all together.
My mom is so beautiful!! She's extremely humble and shy(I so didn't get that from her. LOL). She has spent the last forty years being an amazing mom to me and my two brothers!
My dad is literally the nicest person I know! He spews niceness and it's all real! He's totally funny too!! If he thinks there is a problem he's famous for calling family meetings!LOL
I love them so much and am blessed to call them my parents!!

Lots of emotions...

CHA was an amazing experience!! I've been to many of these events and I gotta say this one was one of my most favorite!! It was filled with laughter, amazement, creativity, and more!
As much as I loved seeing everything and ordering tons for the store, it was the girls that I was with that made the experience so wonderful! Erin was so funny! She had us cracking up the entire time with some of the things that came out of her mouth...literally!LOL
OMG Kristin was ROCKING!! She did an amazing job at making sure we got everything for the store and marking all the books. It so came in handy last night when we started doing pre-orders.
Oh and then there was the one and only Jenny Deal!!! Dude, you had me at Hello!! I've never, EVER, EVER seen someone so organized in my freaking life!! We called her the FINISHER. She completed the orders. The girl made phone calls, had us on time frames, made sure we made our appointments, and more!!! Man, everyone needs a Jenny in their lives!!!
We got to hang out with "MAINE!!!" It was so much fun seeing my good friend Jenn from Maine. She's one of the funniest gals I have ever met. She had us cracking up the entire time.

So the bad thing...
Angel found out that she miscarried while I was away. We tried to get an earlier flight but couldn't. She's being a trooper about it. I have tried to be really strong for her but gotta admit when the words, "I'm really sad and I need to cry but I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for me" came out of her mouth it made my heart drop.
Thanks to everyone who has called and emailed me. I really appreciate it. We all do.

So what's new?
I came home to a list of things to do a mile long. We have classes, crops, events, and tons more coming up. I so enjoy seeing everyone everday!!! Next week is my birthday. I can't believe I'm going to be 27...Oh wait...37! EEEK!! I'm going to celebrate with my girls on Friday night and go out with the family on Saturday! I can't wait!

I'm going to try to post some CHA pictures next week.
Big hugs,
Suzy West
