Today is Teresa's birthday!
Teresa is married to our 3rd child and first son (by 10 minutes), Dan.
She's a very important part of our large family
And of course a very important part of this smaller family.
I wrote about Teresa on her birthday last year in this post and visiting there will show you links to all her previous posts.
And the links in THAT post will take you to many pictures and stories of how she's changed over the years.
So I'll just post a few pictures here.
and talk a little about what's been going on in her life during the past year - and there's a lot!
First of all, she's moved - almost 2,000 miles from here - their much loved home in Colorado Springs.
to here - another much loved home
that has a special amenity that the last home didn't have and that she enjoys VERY much.  Especially the fish races where she laughs really hard the whole race.
She's currently training for two Disney half marathons and she's started crossfit which she absolutely loves!  And she's very much the swim mom right now with practices every day for Tessa and swim meets once a month.  Although she's not currently working outside the home which is an adjustment for her, she's traveling back and forth to Colorado Springs as much as possible to see her boys.  Because that's a big change too.  She's here and they're still there.  I know her hope is that they'll all be in the same area eventually.  And there's another change for her too.  After driving her beloved mini van for many years, she's got a new car that she loves.
And another perk in the past year is that her 'team' won the world series.
All in all, Teresa has had a busy year with lots of changes but she's very adaptable to change and she's very organized which really helps when lots of changes are happening.   They've visited many of the theme parks in the area and spent a weekend or two at the beach. 
And of course I have to add that Teresa is sweet, loving, considerate, and a lot of fun to be around.  She gets along well with her sisters-in-law and puts up with lots of teasing about her height but she is the best sport EVER!
We are so lucky that she is part of our family and that we get to call her a daughter!  What a blessing!  So Happy Birthday, Teresa!  We're hoping it's the best one ever but that it's only half as wonderful as the many more to come!
