A really neat letter from a favorite author.

Last year in 5th Grade - Christopher's class wrote to different people in the hopes they would receive a reply. Chris chose to write to Cressida Cowell - author of "How to Train Your Dragon" - one of his favorite reads. This was many months ago. Either early this week or late last week he received the following letter. Needless to say - it really made his day!


Cressida Cowell even drew a dragon just for Chris! How cool is 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!
