On the sixteenth day of December...


Russell gets to stay home once again. It must be really bad up north. Darn. Now he will be home when I start working on his birthday stuff for tomorrow! And all Michael wants for Christmas is his two front teeth. He lost his second tooth on the top last night. He looks so cute! We also have a concert tonight for Donovan. I am excited to see what he's been working on with the Jr. High band.
And it's official. We have more nasty storms coming our way. Supposedly with snow. Russell and I made a decision this morning to not drive through Portland and see parents and extended family this year. The roads are just too bad. But that's okay. The weather will eventually clear up and we will be able to see everyone and all will be well.
Now - I am off to do more laundry. And make a German Chocolate Cheese Cake for Russell's birthday tomorrow.

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!
