I was born in the wrong century.

I think I really was born in the wrong century! I have been having a blast working in the garden and finishing quilting projects. Maybe it's all in the family genes. Thanks Great Grandma Keen!

Our garden has really taken off. The peas are officially taller than me. Officially. The green beans are loaded with flowers and so are the zucchini! Our garden is doing very well.
I had the top of this done for awhile. I machine quilted it this morning. Just simple straight stitches worked the best. We have a few babies due all at once in the next couple weeks and I would like to do a little blanket for each of them. I have 2 done. One given to the family. One sitting here. One to bind (pictured) and one more to make. I just need some more batting I think...

Wrong century or not you are so ambitious & amazing. Me on the other hand I would have never survived! I'm so happy about your garden, and a little jealous. We have a teeny tiny one, if you can even call it that.

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!
