Happy 9th Birthday Michael!

The day you joined our family was quite the eventful one! Here I am holding you for the first time. I can barely hold you though because 1. You were heavy. and 2. I had lost a lot of blood and was very weak. We were happy you joined our family though. Life has never been dull since your arrival.
When you were a toddler you could be found IN the cupboards. Any cupboard that you could fit in. It didn't matter what was supposed to be in it. You found a way.

You could also be found emptying the cupboards. You did this lovely number while I was getting a quick shower. You are shoveling it in as quickly as you can. I guess the living room floor was an acceptable place to put your food on since the bowls would have been too high for you.

Now you are a young man of 9. You have opinions on how things should be done. You have a good work ethic for the most part. You do struggle with things that do not come easily to you. Before long you will be old enough to do lots of things the bigger boys can do. We are so happy you are part of our family.

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!
