Cousins meet for the first time

Here is a picture of the cousins meeting for the first time. Parker is 6 weeks older and twice the size of Jesse. Parker is Brenda's brother Chris' first son.

When Brown Can Stick Around

My favorite part of yesterdays whole inaguration festivities was the benediction given by this guy.

Here's the part I liked: "Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around ... when yellow will be mellow ... when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen."

Sounds like a bad song from the 70's or something. When brown can stick around... when yellow will be mellow...when the red man can get ahead, man...

Classic! I think I'm gonna like it here. As long as whitey's always righty.

Jesse's First Photo Shoot

Aunt Lisa came over today with her fancy new camera and gave Jesse his first photo shoot. She took tons of picutres and Jesse was a trooper throughout the whole process. Here is a sample of one. I can't wait to see how the rest turn out. Thanks Lisa!

Happy 14 Year Anniversary

We celebrated our 14th year of being married on the 14th, but we were so busy I didn't get to post an announcement. I just wanna say that I am so luck to be married to Brenda. She is the most unselfish person I know. She literally risked her life to give me the best anniversary present I have ever gotten. Jesse makes our family complete. We are so blessed and love being an item. This is a picture of the day we got engaged which was the day I was released from my mission in Japan. That's Okayama Castle in the background. This year will make 20 years of us being together. It just seems like yesterday when Brenda called me up and asked, "So are we an item?" And we've been an item ever since. I love you Brenda.

Jesse making the international sign for call me

We took our 8 day old baby to the Dr and he had gained almost a whole
pound. He's getting so big. Now he's using gestures to communicate
like this "call me" sign. Usually the thumb goes a little closer to
the ear but he's driving and doesn't want to get in trouble for
talking and driving at the same time.

Mother & Son together again

Brenda is out of the ICU and just met Jesse for the first time. Don't
they look like they were meant for each other. Brenda is doing
awesome. Thanks everyone's for your prayers. We'll post more pics later.
