Viv...

Wednesday was my mom's birthday... The whole family had a huge surprise party for her, but since I had just returned home from St. George- I didn't go back. So Sad! I wanted to blog and BRAG about my mom... Viv- She is the best! Someone wondered why I call my mom by her name instead of "mom"... We always have. It is just so fitting and I think we had to get her attention by hollering "Viv" when she didn't answer to mom. Anyone who knows her loves to be around here because she is soooooo much fun. The original party girl- wherever she is... fun is to be found also. She is a great friend. She is the queen of service- sometimes to her fault! She loves to shop! Here main motto is, "You're never sick about what you bought, just what you didn't buy... you can take anything you don't like back!" It is the truth! Words of Wisdom from the Queen of shopping! Viv is the best to take on a girl's trip... she once organized a huge shopping/ theater trip to California of friends and family. It got to be so large we had to rent the Dixie College bus... we called it Treats and Travel. She laughs hard, gets yummy treats, and is just a whole bunch of fun. She is always ready for one more party, will feed ANYONE, and is loved my anyone who is around her. We have often said that we are not good for each other, for we can always go in one more store, or do one more thing. We seem to forget about time and spend a lot of money together. She is the best Grandma in the world. The kids love to go to her house to swim- lunch at the pool party consists of Pizza Factory Pizza and LOTS of popcicles. She even let my boys try out the Harry Potter jelly beans on her. She said, " Oh, Mitch that one tastes just like dirt, let me try it again!" She is warmand generous and funny and just the "best ole' gal on the block"! I love her so much and am so lucky she is my mom!

Do you think we could get some unicorns dancing to Air Supply with that picture of you and your man at Dixie College? I think that would be lovely. Or maybe we should just start calling you guys Zack and Lisa.
