Our Baby is 30! ~ January 30th 2008

Happy Birthday, Laura!

I forgot to send you a card with your package so here is something else instead. We wish you the very best, Honey, for a fabulous new year. You are missed today and every day! I know that Robert and the boys will make your day special. It is not easy to be so far away from your extended family and friends on such a big day. I want to invite everyone who sees this to wish Laura a Happy 30th Birthday right here on the blog! We love you with all of our hearts! Daddy & Mom

Yes Jen, I did scan all these photos and it took forever so can I take a day or two off before I do Chris' and yours? God willing you will both get one this year too! It was very nostalgic..I loved doing it.

Bonnie, As usual you did a great job putting the slide show together...they were even in chronological order. You might have a new calling. Job well done.

Mom you are amazing! Thanks for all of the time and effort you put into making my life look so good! Actually it was really funny. I laughed remembering of all the great times and crazy fashion. The boys watched it with me and had many funny comments along the way. My favorite Ross comment, "Oh there you go, now you are looking better" Sheeseh! Anyway, thank you! I love you and happy day to you- you have been an amazing mom.

Thanks everyone for you birthday wishes. I feel go blessed to be surrounded by such amazing family and friends. Honestly, a girl couldn't ask for more. Thanks for your love and best wishes, thanks for your kindness and thoughtfulness toward me and my family.

Dad, I loved your comments. You are so right- we do have a great family. You are the best Dad. Thanks for all you have done to make my last 30 years wonderful!
