Fa'e, Mãe, Mor, Maman, Makuahine, Madre... Mother



So... First of all. Happy Sabbath everyone. With today being mothers day I would like to publicly acknowledge Michelle for winning mother of the decade. Why might you ask? Here's just a few reasons of why Michelle is the winner. In the past 10 years Michelle has done the following...
  • Nursed 3 torn ACLs
  • Nursed an additional 4 knee surgeries (including herself)
  • Nursed a torn Rotator Cuff and Labrum
  • 2 broken arms, 1 double compound fracture with 4 surgeries
  • Multiple broken noses
  • Took care of some kid who had cancer for 8 months
  • Sent 2 sons on LDS missions
  • Fed hundred of mouths (mostly mine and Steph's)
  • Drove to Canada with a car full of sleeping kids then navigated herself throughout that mother land with out Steve 
  • Ran a few marathons just for the fun of it
  • Lets throw in triathlons for kicks and giggles 
  • Ran for a public office and won. 
  • Has had 3 high school graduates. 1 college.
  • Somehow managed to go back to BYU and do more school for fun
  • Grandmother to my little Porsche and Bella
  • Planning her first wedding
  • Conquered China
  • Did 3 Eagle Scouts (I'm giving her credit we all know those boys do nothing 

Now... I could go on. But I should stop there. Basically my Gypsy is the most amazing woman I know. Seriously she puts up with so much. Shes married to the brown man. She has 5 brown children. 2 grandchildren (animals), as well as her own 120 lb german shepherd, 2 jobs, a political career, an insane gym workout freak, and functions off 4 hours of sleep. I am in awe at how she does it all but she does. She's raised me to be the person I am and I wouldn't be here without her. She's the most caring giving person I know out of all the men and women out there. Anyways, Gypsy lady. I hope you know I love you to at least the Sun and back. and maybe a littler further. Side note.. I got her the BEST mothers day present ever. So I'm going to say you're welcome right now.

Besides my mother I've had some people throughout my life who have been mothers to me and helped raise me. Lets be honest I haven't been the easiest child to raise. So here's some more women who deserve credit for me as well.

My Grandmas Janet and Eveline. My Grandma Garrick passed away when I was just 10 years old, but she was one of my best friends. She has the same cancer I have and even though she's not here I know we have that connection and she's still with me in spirit. She was such a fighter and the most amazing woman ever. She made the best pancakes, put on the best easter egg hunts, and taught me where to keep my money so no one can steal it. I miss her everyday and wish more than anything she could be here with me. My Grandma Kaufusi is still up and at it. She is such a great example of selflessness. She is giving and caring. She managed to make it to all of her grandkids graduations college and high school throughout the state. She always comes to my house with Tongan food and treats for us. We just  celebrated her 69th birthday recently and I am so happy shes still here. She has facebook, text, and I'm sure she will be on twitter and isntagram soon.


My Aunt Lisa. From the time we moved into that white house on Forest Hills Drive just 6 houses away from her she has been there with me through it all. I can always count on her care and support as she's been to countless Timpview and BYU basketball games cheering for me as well as through chemo up at the hospital. No one throws a pool party like her and no one has a full cookie jar at all times like she does.


Liz and Ann Tempest. My two best friends moms. Liz and Ann have been there since I was just a kid. They introduced me to camping and hunting and all those outdoorsy mountain things that Brown people typically don't do, being more of beach ocean people. I can't tell you though how much fun I have had with these two ladies and their families. They have opened their arms to me and have treated me as their own. Not to mention their daughters are two of my best friends. I'll never forget all the fun times up Lambs Canyon, Milburn, Turkey hunts, Huntsville, and ski trips to Alta.



Eva Fisher. Oh Evas... Eva has had to deal with me through the teenage years. She also opened up her front doors and always had amazing food for lunch. She also shares her magical oils with me. If you ever have ANY ailment I guarantee Eva has an oil for it and you'll be better in a few days. Along with Michelle shes the ultimate workout freak and basketball mom. She's always there and always gives me a good laugh whenever I'm at her home.


Suz Vermunt. Suzie is Steph's mother. Although she lives 11 hours north of here she has been such an influence to me. She opens her doors willingly to me when I go to the motherland and makes the most amazing BBQ salad thing ever. She was my go to when we were in Italy since Michelle couldn't come and she always takes care of me when I'm up in Canada. She's been so good to just accept me into their family with open arms and I couldn't as for a better Canadian Mother.


The newest person I want to add is my cousin Hillary. She's been there for me all along. From trips to the zoo and to movies when I was younger to coming to every chemo session with her 3 girls. She recently gave birth to 3 triplet boys and I have loved going to her home and spending time with her. She is the best person to talk to about anything because she gives the best advice to me. Probably because we are both are Virgos and think the same and have the same thought process. I'm so thankful for her and for being there for me whenever I need her. I'm also thankful for her 6 kids and the happiness they bring me and for all the joy I get because of them.



I'm so thankful today for mothers and for all the women out there. Maybe its because I'm a minor feminist and think women are superior but I really am so thankful. Wouldn't be the person I am without all these women and so much more. Everyone have an amazing mother's day! Love you all!

Alexis & Porsche & Bella

Side Note... I recently got a new puppy. Her full name is Isabella Eveline Kaufusi. But I call her Bella. She's a St. Bernard. 6 weeks old. And so adorable!! This little puppy has made me so happy and has been a blessing to me. I may be a little obsessed so I'm apologizing now for the excessive pictures I will post. Happy Sunday. Happy Mothers Day. And Happy Talking to Corbin Today!!
