Happy birthday dear Chris!
You have turned into a very handsome 12 year old young man.

You were born during a BYU football game on Oct. 3rd. You weighed in at 6 lbs 8 oz and were 19 inches long. My how you've grown! You used to be blonder than blonde and now your hair is dark. You try your best to be happy and be a peacemaker. You weren't always this way and it's been a joy to watch you change. I am so happy you are in our family! :)

I have a son born October 2nd; he is now 42 years old. When he arrived it made October so special because I almost lost him. Boys are the best!

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!
