To my Sweet Husband!

I've been tagged so many times and haven't done anything about it yet. So I thought today would be the perfect day tell a little bit about Callin since today is Valentine's Day. He truely is the most amazing man I know. He is such a great father to our three wonderful boys. I just sit and watch him play with them and it makes me feel so lucky that those boys are blessed with such a great father. Callin truely is the greatest undeserved blessing in my life. He treats me so well, and is the kindest, most genuine and caring guy I know. He can be a little crazy sometimes, but he always keeps life interesting and exciting. Thanks Call for just being you, Happy Love Day!

WHAT IS HIS NAME: Callin Passey
HOW LONG DID WE DATE: We dated for 5 and 1/2 years including highschool, college and mission. If that doesn't count then we dated for two months after his mission and then got married two and a half months later.
WHO SAID I LOVE YOU FIRST: He did, I think. Sorry I can't really remember.
WHO IS TALLER: Callin by several inches.
WHO SINGS BETTER: He thinks he does. He has a secret dream of being on American Idol. He really does have a great voice. He just has a hard time sharing it with other people.
WHO'S SMARTER: He is. End of subject.
WHO PAYS THE BILLS: I pay the bills and do the budget. I'm not sure Callin would know how. Just Kidding.
WHO SLEEPS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BED: We switch depending on who needs to use the alarm clock in the morning.
WHO MOWS THE LAWN: The condo association does- but when we have our own house I get first dibs. I know it's crazy but we may fight over it.
WHO COOKS DINNER: I do most of the time but Callin is a very good cook. He loves it more than I do.
WHO DRIVES: Callin always drives! I don't enjoy driving when I don't have to and I make him too nervous.
WHO'S MORE STUBBORN: He would say me. I would say him. We both are pretty stubborn.
WHO KISSED WHO FIRST: He kissed me first after three months of dating. He likes to take things nice and slow.
WHO ASKED WHO OUT FIRST: Callin asked me out first to Homecoming dance junior year of high school.
WHO PROPOSED: Callin did of course. It was up at Cottonwood Lake -one of the prettiest places ever.
WHO HAS MORE SIBLINGS: I do. I have eight siblings and he has two.
WHO WEARS THE PANTS IN THE FAMILY: He lets me think that I do but we know that really he does.
I TAG: Kimberly, Melinda, Jennifer, and Julie


Callin's mother sent this picture of Callin to us. I think Kai looks a lot like his daddy. What do you think?

Grandmas and Grandpa

Gabe and Avery love going to Idaho to see their Grandmas and Grandpas. Here they are with Grandma Cock-a-doodle and Grandpa Popcorn. They always have such a good time seeing family that it makes it hard to leave.
Here is Callins son, mother and Grandmother, so four generations. Someday my kids will think that's pretty neat.

My darling little Niece

We got to go home for a week in January and had so much fun with family.
This is one of my adorable nieces that I have. Olivia is the sweetest little thing.
Her and Kai got very aquainted. Olivia loved trying to play with him the whole time. She is way too cute!
