Scott, Jeremy, Dad and Spencer (missing Bryan and Ryan)Dad with the sons he may not have raised but that are just as dear to him now as if he had.

Beautiful Mommy... seriously, I have the best Mom EVER!
Mary and Melissa...awwww.Mary's husband Ryan is a basketball coach at a high school in Idaho and, unfortunately, for us...he had a game on party evening. Mary said she would drive down on her own with the kids...but only if there was no snow. So as much as I wish for, hope for and crave a white Christmas, this year I was praying for the opposite so we could have Mary and her and her kiddos with us.
