On the sixth day of December...

I was asked no less than 4 times how many days until Christmas. I love the anticipation these little guys have. Christmas is my most favorite time of year. Today the scouts picked up the bags of food for the food drive. Our little tiny pack did 540 lbs this year! We would like to top that next year. The primary children sang beautifully today as well as the retirement home here in town. There weren't very many - but they sang their hearts out and the residents really enjoyed what they had to offer.

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!
