Happy Birthday Todd!!!
I am thankful for my brother Todd, and for the relationship I have with him.
Being the baby of the family, I was definitely messed with and teased when we were little,(admit it Todd!:) But luckily Todd also took the time to play with me and be a great big brother. I can remember making videos with Todd & Summer and just having tons of fun(Todd would come up with these grand ideas...he even did a cool claymation video when we were young).
Thanks for making me tough with all our play fighting(when we were little:)
Thanks for letting us play Nintendo too. (I sure loved Mario & Yoshi:)
Thanks for going to best buy and all over town with me so I could use my learners permit. (I even talked him into taking me to Romeo & Juliet.......I'm pretty sure he made fun of it, i loved it:)
Thanks for being such a wonderful big brother.
Real quick, a kind of personal story (Todd, I don't know if you remember, but it meant a lot to me) Years ago, Todd and his wife Sheila were living at my parents house for a small time. One night, I went through my first "serious" breakup, and my brother could hear from the next room that I was upset(it might have been the extra loud "break-up music" I was playing:) he came and knocked on my door, asked me how I was and gave me a hug, telling me everything would be OK. (He didn't try to minimize it or mention how it was all for the best....even though it was! He just made sure I knew he was there & he loved me).
Todd met and fell in love with his perfect match Sheila soon after he returned from his mission. and together they have raised 5 amazing kids! (i know, I think that about all my nieces & nephews, but that doesn't mean it's not true..they really are all amazing).
Anyway, those are just a couple of reasons why I love my brother (there are many more).
Have a great Birthday!!!!

We went down to Douglas this weekend to visit Adam's grandparents.
It was fun for me to finally meet them. The trip there however, was a little annoying for us all. First, we didn't get out of town until after 7 in the morning and then not 2 hours into the trip the other cars(in our 'caravan') tire blew. The tire could not be changed roadside because the lug nut(or something or other) was stripped, so we waited for a tow truck to get us to Marana (has anyone ever seen Marana.....not a place I want to be stuck for long.) Finally they fixed the tire and we were all on the road again. Then sadly my S-i-l got pulled over and got a ticket. It was one thing after another. So, we reached Douglas long after we had expected.
While there, we got to listen to Grandpa Huish tell some amazing stories from his younger days. Adam kept himself busy fixing the swap cooler, (he is amazing...i swear he can fix anything if given the right tools..a jack of all trades!) and we got to look through their pictures (from back in the day) I really enjoyed it.
We didn't get home until Very late that night, so we took the next day to recuperate.
