Happy Mothers Day to the best mom in the world. Mom, you and dad have given us everything and I’m so grateful for you. Thank you for working so hard to make our lives the best they could be. Thank you for giving everything even when you were exhausted and just needed a nap. I love you mom. I owe so much of who I am to you. My whole life you’ve worked, whether it was daycare, helping us with school, or being a nurse. You went back to school after already having six kids to raise so that you could become a labor and delivery nurse and help other moms. On top of working so many long hours at the hospital, you still came home to help with projects, make a birthday dinner and dessert, comfort us when we needed support, and you were always a friend. I love you forever mom. You deserve the world. #donnysmothersdaygiveaway (plus you’ve loved Donny’s music forever. I don’t remember a road trip where we didn’t sing Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at least once)
Grandma Chapman, one of the most incredible, kind, spunky, and honest people I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. I got to spend six months in her home, we got to celebrate our birthdays together, and I got to learn countless lessons from her. I’m so grateful for my friendship with Grandma. I know that she is in a much happier place now and although we’re hurting here, she is rejoicing as she gets to see so many loved ones again. I love you Grandma Chapman. Thank you for everything❤️
Despite being super busy with work and school, life is really good right now.
Happy birthday to the sweetest little punk I know! I can’t believe you’re already 4 Marky!!! I remember the day you were born like it was yesterday. You’re the sweetest, happiest, silliest little guy and I love you so so so much! I can’t wait until you come to Utah to see me at my house. Thank you for being my best buddy. Have the best day and I hope you get some really yummy cake!
This not so little kid is 8 years old today. I actually can’t believe that my little Rico is so big already. I still vividly remember getting the text that my sister was in labor and waiting at the hospital for so long that night waiting for this sweet little boy to get here. Rico, I love you so much buddy and I’m so proud of you! You’ve always appreciated the magic in the world and had the biggest sweetest smile and laugh. I love you forever Rico and I hope you have the very best birthday today❤️ P.S. stop growing up so fast buddy.
Happy 24th Birthday, Hannah B! I love you so much and I seriously miss you more than you know. Thank you for always being my friend and for making sure I was always taken care of. I’m so grateful for everything you’ve done for me and for the relationship we have. I hope you’re loving your birthday trip to New York! I seriously miss you and can’t wait to come visit you this summer!!! Also, I second Isa’s statement that you are the most extra member of the family. But it made for some great memories. Like re-enacting all of Wicked in costume (still don’t know why I was Glinda. Oh yeah, because you look good in green). You’re a drama queen and I love you for it. Love you B!!!
I cannot believe that this sweet, smart, kind, incredible little boy is 6 years old today. It makes me want to cry because he was JUST a little baby and now he’s growing up. Grayson has brought so much joy into every life he has touched. He has such a beautiful heart and everyone who knows him loves him. Grayson is the silliest little bug there ever was. He’s so full of life and so happy and loving. I’m so grateful fo be this amazing little boys auntie. I mean, come on. This kid lives a double life as Jack Skellington and an Incredible. I’m just lucky he knows my name. Buggy, I hope you have the best day and that you have SO much fun at Disneyland! You’re the best, Gray! Love you forever💕
Dear Isa, I hate your stinkin’ guts. You make me vomit. You’re scum between my toes. Love, Maisie. P.S. happy 20th! I love you Bela!
Please excuse my hair, but I just need to say how insanely proud I am of my big brother. The movie he’s been working on for so long premiered this week at Sundance and has had an incredible response so far. It has been so fun to see him with the people he worked with to create this movie and to see the joy and excitement that they are all experiencing! Thanks for letting Sydney and I tag along to so many events with you these past few days. I’m so proud of you and all you’re accomplishing! Keep dreaming big! Love you so much and I can’t wait to watch #bigtimeadolescence on Saturday! #americanhigh
No matter what, I will always love my family💕(sad that we’re missing a few in the pictures)
In 20 days I get to go back to the city I love and I am beyond excited. I’m so stoked to get some of the delicious food Portland has to offer. I’m counting down the days!
Look at this babe! Seriously Wilki (even though THAT’S NOT YOUR NAME ANYMORE) you are stunning and I love you! Congrats to you and Zack!
Today I had the honor of being a bridesmaid for the wedding of one of my very best friends. I am so grateful for this girl in my life. She made a lifelong impression on my life a year ago and has been an amazing friend to me. She is one of the most incredible people I know and today she was such a breathtakingly beautiful bride. Congratulations Summer and Jeremy (you’ll always be Cush and Bade to me). I wish you the absolute best and the happiest life. I love you guys so much!
It’s hard to believe that it’s been an entire year since I got home from my mission. I would never trade those 18 months for anything. I’m so grateful for everything I learned there, but I’m also so grateful for the things I’ve learned in the last year of my life. There has been a lot of changing and a lot of growth and I thank my Heavenly Father for that.
I think it’s time for a trip back home to Oregon
