Uncle Corky

All three of my boys are obsessed with my brother Cortland. They way that they look at him you can just tell that they want to be just like him when they grow up. It is so sweet to watch. Last weekend Cortland took Dax AND Shane by himself to the double feature 3-D Toy Story movies. What a great break for me and how lucky am I to have a brother like him?

So, I just thought that I wold share some images of him. Not only is he talented, sweet, and cute, but he is really funny and has one of the best personalities ever. So here's you you Cortland, I love you!

Cortland is red-shirting this year for Utah State. If I 'm not mistaken it is because he plans to serve a mission in the spring, so that in two years when he comes home he can still play for four years. Every weekend he comes back home from Logan and I think that it is for the same reason that I yearned to go back home after I moved out... our sweet mother! Am I right, Cort?
She does his laundry for him while he is there, and she cooks three meals a day for him. You can tell that he really appreciates all that she does, and I think it is sweet.

If you are wondering why I posted these short clips of him it is because I find it hilarious that he did these out of boredom. I would not be surprised if he sat in front of that computer tinkering on it, laughing at himself, racking his brain for more funny things to record, and having the greatest time, for HOURS. Here were some of my favorites that I found of him while I was at my mom's house the other day (he is going to kill me by the way)...

So you can see why we love him.

We love him because... he brings a sense of peace to our busy and sometimes chaotic household, he smiles when he wakes up, he happily lets his brothers cuddle with him even when they are borderline smothering him, and he loves his mom. Being really cute doesn't hurt his cause either, what do you think?

His Forth Smile Ever!

Brad captured Ryne's forth smile with his phone. It lasted a few seconds so we had to be really quick. So sweet!
