School Pics

JaCoby's latest pic from school. He looks so grown up. He is about 5 ft 7 in, 117 pounds and is currently wearing a size 10.5 shoe in mens. Wow they never stay small for long.

The Last Time

As of October 23 2014, I have officially retired from the Utah Army National Guard. This picture was taken the last day I will be in uniform active. My very supportive wife Tennille, whom took the picture, has supported me throughout my career. Retiring now is the most unselfish decision I have ever made in my life and I would not have it any other way.

Courtney coming home

Courtney came home on Wednesday and these are a few of the pics I took. For that reason I am not in them.

Courtney with mom at the airport hugging after JaCoby made sure he got the first hug, unfortunately I did not get a pic of that one.

Tennille and Courtney together just before she was released.

Mom doing one of the hardest things for a missionary, taking off the badge for the very last time. Mom said "I can't, I don't want to do it." A lot of tears were shed on all sides.

I could not resist putting up this pic of Courtney holding our most friendly and lovable chicken "Chick Magnet" 
We are so glad that Courtney is home. She served the Lord so honorably and will continue to do so throughout her life.

Halloween pics

Here are a few Halloween pics.
 Tennille dressed up in a ghoul costume. It has a hood, but she elected to keep it up.

JaCoby dressed up as a nerd, he had glasses on too, but he broke them at  recess, but at least he still had the fake buck teeth.
A pic I thought was cool of two girls dressed up as Malificent at The Park Elementary Halloween parade.

 Tennille dressed up and doing what she loves serving the kids lunch.

Here is how I decorated our house for Halloween.

A prayerful cat

We caught our cat in this position last night. To me it looks as if she is praying. I guess even cats need to seek Heavenly Guidance.

 We went to the fire house open house yesterday, for someone not wanting to go, JaCoby sure had a great time.
 This pic show the firefighters getting their gear getting ready to go
because as soon as we got there some of the got a call out

We had to ask 3 firefighters to try on a suit because JaCoby's big size 10.5 feet would not fit in any other ones. LOL
