Our eldest son is growing up. Today Russell taught him how to shave. Is he really old enough? I can't believe it! Yet he has the "moustache" to prove he is. Sigh....

oh no!!! not the shave!!!!! i'm so sorry - but it was bound to happen. now keep him away from everything that even remotely resembles anything but a disposable. those electric things are gobs of useless money - and they hurt like heck when not used in proper conditions. they don't tell you that, though - but i have the scars to prove it! oh well, on you go to the next chapter in donovan's growing up. like i said, it was bound to happen. too bad "someday" came so fast. hugs...ellie

Yeah - Donovan is a rather reserved individual. He didn't it would be funny if I took a picture. Russell told him he had to use a razor. When he gets older then maybe an electric one because not every time you need to shave is there an electrical outlet. Certainly good advice!

Awesome Donovan and OUCH!

Becky said...

awwwwww. he is alllll growed up. :)

Aaron totally agrees with Russell's advice. Never know when you'll have an outlet available...

sticky said...

Ouch! That seems impossible...certainly you can't be old enough to have a child that shaves? oh the injustice.

(so there really is NO way to keep them from growing up? damn)

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!
