From the mouths of little boys....

From my Michael.....
"I'm a lucky man."

Me: "Why's that?"

Michael: "Because tomorrow when I do my chore - I only have two things to pick. Yep - I'm a lucky man."

From my Nephi.....
Last week BEFORE he broke his leg - while we waited for extended family to come visit....

Michael: "Mom - when are Grandpa and Grandma coming?"

Me: "In a little while."

Nephi: (I LOVE this comment.) "A little while is HALF of a while."

i can just see michael's little smiling face singing "i'm a lucky man, i'm a lucky man". and nephi looking at you so sincerely and so sure of himself. you've got quite the good group there.

Michael would be doing that. Nephi on the other hand - is very sure of himself all the time. He cracks me up with his "know it all" attitude sometimes. And the funny thing is - he's usually right!

I'm glad you found me. I can't believe how big all your boys are!!! I guess time flies, huh?

Candace said...

Hey Andra! Welcome to my blog! :) Yeah - time really does fly. It's been 3 years since we've moved up to Oregon. We really do miss all our friends we made in Arizona. We would still be there too if money wasn't so important for survival. That's how much we loved it there.

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
