dec 17 1979

was a great day. I didn't know it yet (in fact, I was in womb at the time), but my husband was
born! He is now 30 years old! I met him when I was 18! It doesn't even seem possible that I have known him for 12 years!

Everyone seems to do this, but I gotta... here are my top 30 favorite things about Tyson.

1. He is hilarious!

(Ketchican, ALASKA)

2. He makes everyone feel comfortable around him.
3. He is a hard worker.

(Provo, UTAH)

4. He has lots of ambition.


5. He gets all funny in awkward situations.

(Lake Charles, LOUISIANA)

6. He can remember anything about anybody.
7. He will take the kids anytime and let me have a break.


8. He is considerate.
9. He is a hands on dad.. always on the floor with the kids.

(Laguna Hills, CALIFORNIA)

10.He woke up every night with me to help me feed the twins,even though he had to go
to med school the next day! (I don't know many husbands who would do that.)


11.He treats his parents with such respect.
12.Although there are 8 children in his family, he has a personal relationship with
EVERY SINGLE ONE. Everyone is important.

(Diamondhead, OAHU, HAWAII)

13.He has crazy amounts of faith.

(Lake Charles, LOUISIANA)

14.He is a great patriarch of our home. Always remembering prayers, fhe etc.

(Huntington Beach, CALIFORNIA)

15.He remembered a dream I had about how I would be purposed to and recreated it.. as
much as he could without the crazy dream aspect of it. Something just can't be
recreated. :)
16.He is helpful.

wanted to be in Tyson's group.

25.He is a great poet. His prose are pretty amazing!


26.He makes a mean quesadilla!

(Mendicino, CALIFORNIA)

27.He has a strong testimony of the gospel.
