Love You Tanner


My brother Tanner's 19th Birthday was 2 days ago - and I'm a lame sister because I'm just now getting around to posting this (but I did call him).  My sisters Tiffany and Michele shared many funny stories and quotes on their blogs - I was laughing so hard I was crying!  And they pretty much summed it all up.  But I want Tanner to hear it from me too.  So, here goes
Top 3 Reasons I love you:
You say the craziest things and have a great sense of humor.  You're always making me laugh!
You don't care what other people think, you are always true to yourself.
You are excited about life and everything in it.  Your enthusiasm is contagious.

I can't believe that I wont be seeing you again before you leave on your mission!  2 years without Tanner to liven up our family get-togethers!  I don't know what we're going to do without you.  Probably just make fun of you a lot : )  
I'm so proud of you for being worthy, excited, and prepared to serve a mission.  You are going to be so awesome, I can't wait to hear all about it!  You have grown and matured so much, especially these last couple of years.  Every time I see you you surprise me with how much you've changed.  I'm so proud of the person that you've become.  Who would've known, huh?!?  Just Kidding!  
I Love You Tanner!  Happy Birthday!

I can't believe that Tanner is old enough to go on a mission!! I remember when your brothers and your dad came to visit our freshman year and your brothers were so little.... I think that makes us old too! Happy Birthday Tanner and good luck on your mission!

Ok, there is something wrong with me because I get emotional reading all these posts about Tanner. And yours made me cry, summer! I even cried writing mine! Partly because it was so funny and partly because I am going to miss him so dang much when he leaves and I am so proud of him..I don't think I realized just what a mixture of emotions is going to go through me to see him leave on his mission. Very nice post, Summer : )

You're right, there's something wrong with you, all this damn crying. I think it would be best if you stayed away feom the MTC...or you'll have everyone crying.
