Bret, my eyes are wet and my heart is more than tender. Your pictures, and perfect music, and the comments from your family have touched me so. There is nothing in the world a mom could want more than for her son to be loved by his wife and children. I am so proud of you for all you accomplish, but even more for the love you show to your family. I am glad you are my boy!!!!
p.s. Nicole this was you best blog ever. The pictures are great!

Bret is the BEST! He is such a great dad and husband. I have always been lucky to have him for my big brother! Lucy told me that she loved staying at Bret and Coles. She said "Bret says me Lucky and tickles me." She asked me last night if she could sleep at Katy's again. Thank you sooo MUCH for helping me! My kids loved every second of it and told me how good you were to all of them. They loved going to the library and their little picnic lunch. You are the best!!! Sorry Shawn if Lucy took all of your toys and bullied you around. She told me that she kept taking his toys. WE love you all so much!
