Thursday morning's update...

I woke up this morning at 5:30. From the neighbor's outdoor light all I saw was water. Now that it is finally light enough - here are some pics!

Looking from the boys' bedroom window. Our backyard is under water.
From our deck - the field in front of our house is full of water.

Looking towards another neighbor's house. Lots of water. It's about 1 1/2 feet deep at our end. That would make it about 3-4 feet deep at the end of the road.

Looking out from the living room. The water is pouring into the field rapidly.

From our living room again - looking at the barn across the river. Hope the cows are okay. Russell stayed home today. He tried driving to see how deep the water was. Then decided the water was too deep for him to wade through to get to his car parked out on the main road. Good thinking.

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!
