Russell is a great hubby and supports me in anything I do. He has come to every volleyball tournament I have coached in for the last 3 years just so I wouldn't have to drive alone and so that I wouldn't have to be without him and the girls for a whole day. He even took over my club team for a couple of weeks after I had the twins. He is always encouraging me to go out and do something fun for myself and he is ALWAYS willing to watch the girls while I do it. He adores me and always makes sure I know it.
I couldn't ask for a better dad for my children. His girls love him SO much and get so excited when he gets home from work. And the really great thing is that he gets excited too! He is the perfect partner for me I picked the perfect person to have twins with, I'll tell you that! He is a very hands-on kind of dad- he is very organized and involved and doesn't just leave everything to me. He takes more responsibility than most dads and always wants to know everything about every doctor visit, every tooth coming in and every thing they eat and do during the day (sometimes it's kinda annoying actually, but I secretly love it).
One of the reasons I fell in love with Russell is because he was and is such a good uncle and so great with kids. I saw him with his niece and nephew and with my nieces and nephews and knew that he had something special when it came to his love for children.
Here he is with his sister's daughter, Staci on our wedding day and here we are with my brother Spencer's kids.
These are my 2 best friends- my mother and Russell. It means the world to me that they get along so well. They are really great friends now and it's awesome. He really is a great son-in law and I think my parents are lucky in that respect.
