January 2, 2009 flood...

Around lunchtime today I went next door and checked on the neighbors. I also took a few pictures from our property. Around our house there isn't much water. Which is a good thing.

Looking along the fenceline down the road. The water is over the top of the fence.
Looking down our driveway. It's the highest place on our road. As soon as our neighbor's property starts - that's where the water is.

Looking to the east to the actual river itself. It's still flowing into the fields but the overall water level is going down.

Wow! I'm glad your house is safe and unflooded!

Happy New Year, Candace!

Hey Candace! I bet there's way more than that now! We got it bad here. Part of Highway 26 between here and Brightwood is closed due to a mudslide and part of Hwy 26 fell down the side of the hill between Tollgate and Loren's work. K2 is up at her bff's house in Rhododendron. Guess we'll be taking the back way to pick her up!

Happy New Year Candace!! What an adorable new family pic, current too. A few of your boys look cold but it's awesome. As far as bowling goes, it's great to expose the boys to cheap, fun dates where they can make the girl look good!

Hugs,
Sharon

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!
