Nephi is the birthday guy!

Six years ago today Nephi our birthday guy joined our family. He was our preemie arriving in style. He came by way of c-section and weighed 4 lb 14 oz and 18 inches long.

Then and now....
You can't tell by looking at him now that he was ever that little! Happy birthday Nephi! We love you! :) (He has this huge smile because his backpack contains cookies to share with his kindergarten class today.)

He is your miracle baby! Happy Birthday to your "baby" who is not really a baby any more! I had forgotten your hubby is also a Bishop. One more thing we have in common---no wonder we are friends! :) Someday we will have to pow wow on Bishop's wives stories!

I just love this picture! The beach...it's the place to be!

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!
