Oh Boy! Date To-Do's

Porter quickly understanding the benefits of dating, invited TWO such dates to his weekly Scrabble game...and won! We'll have to work on that date etiquette!

Oh Boy! Date To-Do's

Grampy offered to take Hunter golfing...if he went on more dates!

So, taking said date to help you pick out your glasses...a great idea!

As well as confessing to a passing stranger that you're newlywed, and would appreciate help with the picture.

Welcome Home!

It might have been really sad that he, who was gone for two years,

came home the day your caliper froze

so instead of him seeing your face first

he was met by everybody else,

wondering where you are

and why you're not there

until he sees you

running down the hallway

and you see him wondering

if you are finally there

and you know

even if your face wasn't seen first

 it was the one he never stopped looking for.

Hi Amy Jo,

Just thinking of you tonight as you anxiously await Tanner's arrival tomorrow. I can only imagine the joy that will be felt by all. Wish I could be there! We are looking forward to seeing all of you soon...Emma and Anna are especially excited!

I know Tanner will receive much well deserved praise for his amazing success as a missionary...I would like to offer a few words of praise for you as well...You are an exceptional mother and your children are so blessed to have your love and influence in their lives. Way to go Amy Jo, and Congratulations! Tanner wouldn't have been as great a missionary as he was without his amazing mother guiding, teaching, loving and supporting him throughout his life.

I love you!
