Somebody turned 14 today and like all 14 year olds....knows everything! :)

Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to yoU! Happy birthday dear Donovan.....Happy birthday to YOU!
On this day 14 years ago you were the firstborn into our family. It changed our lives and for the better! You were a good baby which made taking care of you a joy and a blessing.
Now you are a 14 year old young man with dreams of your own. Follow your dreams and work hard for what you want in life. Taking the easy road and just getting by doesn't cut it in the real world. We love you so much!
Love,
Mom and Dad

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!
