happy birthday jean!

Today is my mother in law's birthday so I thought i'd do a little post about her. Jean is by far one of the nicest people I know. She accepted me into the family right away when david and i started dating and always made me feel welcome. Her and david's dad have let us live with them at various times during transitions in our lives. she works harder at her job, her calling and her family than anyone i know! she'll go out of her way to help someone out. david put it perfectly on his myspace when he put her as his hero saying 'my mom [is my hero] because she's the best person i've ever known!'
she's creative. she raised a great family and finished school at the same time. she loves chloe so much, which makes me excited for how she'll be with our kids.


  1. seriously, one of my memories of jean is when you guys had invited me to spend the night up the mountain and i said, "i'm spending the night at your house, is that ok?" and she said "kari...i WANT you to spend the night at my house." so matter of factly. Happy birthday Jean!

  2. She really is a great woman. SO nice and so accepting. I love her too and she isn't even my family!

  3. Jean is my 2nd Mom! I love her to death! She loves my daughter like one of her own grandkids!
    Jeanie-Weenie you are AMAZING!!
