My family

My husband and I got married in 1992.  We had known each other for almost 5 years when we made the big commitment.  We thought we knew so much because we had both served missions for the LDS church, been going to school, and my stars he turned 23 the next month and I turned 24 in June (which really means I was 23 and he was 22).
February 14, 1992

All those people in that picture above are twenty years older.  My sister got married, too, in 1996. She was definitely the more mature of the two of us. We each have 4 children.  Let's compare.

Uh-huh, uh-huh, all older. 2012

Watch my family grow.

Look at my mom's awesome wig! 1970

My mom made most of our clothes. 1977
My sister couldn't fake a decent smile. 1983

Now we're all looking better.  1989

The secret is:  I really like my family.  They are amazing, fun people.  Even my brother-in-law.   ;)


  1. I think I've seen family portraits in front of the faux bookcases in every family room I've ever been in.

    You're family is pretty awesome. I've enjoyed meeting all of them.

  2. Well, you know the 80's. Plus, my mom was Olan Mills happy.
