Merry Christmas 2010

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! May this coming year bring much happiness, love and laughter.

We did it... we finally did it! We got family pictures taken. The last family picture we had was 5 years ago and a lot of us has changed. Callie (our wonderful photographer) took our pictures and they turned out awesome! We are a pretty good looking group!

Funny faces! This is hilarious!

Happy, Happy Birthday, Krissa. I hope you have an awesome day. You have been my right hand mam throughout your life and a true friend. I appreciate you so much. I don't know what I would do without you! I hope this next year is filled with fun, excitement, surprises and lots and lots of laughter.

He got his mission call!!! This was the picture he sent Krissa on his cell phone. The picture says it all... is he excited or what?

He opened it up Friday night so friends and family could be there. Ty and I almost opened it up earlier... for a bonding moment... but we resisted and waited for everyone else.

He was called to the Spain Madrid Mission and leaves for Utah MTC on April 27th. He will stay there for 3 weeks and then go to the MTC in Spain. We are so happy and proud of him. It is going to be SO hard when he is gone but I know it will be worth the sacrifice for him serving the Lord.

Quiet moments for a mom that will miss her baby boy extremely!! Spain is a really far ways away!

Happy 25th Birthday, Zach!

Happy Birthday, Zach!!

Wow... another year older.... and wiser too!

I love this picture. It is the perfect picture of the All American Boy.... t-shirt, jeans and a black eye. He is carefree and happy. Those 25 years are filled with so many fun memories. You weren't afraid to just have a good time. You have such a fun personality and sense of humor.
I hope you have a great birthday and that you know how much you are loved.
Love ya, Mom
