10 Things we LOVE about Tau Ioane!

From Naomi:

1. You are a big Teddy Bear. You're one of those big dudes who could be really scary if you wanted to, but when it comes down to are the first person to pick up my girls, snuggle them, and give in to their every whim. Heaven help you if you ever have daughters!

2. You like to spoil your wife when she least expects it. One of my favorite examples is when you gave her a really small budget to buy you a Christmas gift because you had already secretly blown most of the budget on her. She thought you were going to spend the same amount on her, but was surprised when she opened up her new computer and her Wii! LUCKY!

3. You are a loving father. I think everyone really loves their kids, and most people even like their kids, but you adore your boys! It is so wonderful to see you puff up with pride every time they do something great or to see you smile from ear to ear when they are being cute. You are obviously one proud papa, and for good reason!

4. You are always pushing to be your best self. This is one of the things that impresses me most about you. You never claim to be perfect, but it is obvious to anyone who pays attention that you are working your hardest to get there. I am grateful to know my sister is in the hands of a righteous and loving man who works so hard to be his best and care for his family.

5. You are super fun and funny to be around! I have spent many hours laughing at the funny things that you say and enjoying your company during good games and conversation. You are easy to be around and I wish we could hang out with you guys more often. Thank you for being such a fantastic brother. We love you Tau!

From Kevin:

6. Tau's a stud, fun to hang out with, and hardworking. I have always admired how hard he works to achieve the goals he sets for himself.

7. I always appreciated how Tau treated Brooklyn as a little girl. It surprised me how tender he was and how Brooklyn would just sit on his lap for hours.

8. I can tell that Tau unconditionally loves his wife and he is a great example to me of how to be a good husband.

9. Tau is good at any sport I can think of and I enjoy playing with him...even though he can kick my trash at ANYTHING!

10. I think Tau is a great father and because of him I know I am guaranteed to have very many nephews!
