Made weak by time and fate,
but strong in will;
To seek, to strive, to find, and not to yield.

Side Note:
The fork. or Also known as "A Dingle-hopper" Reminds me of one who not only had amazing hair (that I would pretend I had as I swam in our pool as a young girl) but also for me represents a young woman who loved learning about everything and anything. Who pushed past barriers and boundaries to find her place in this world. In this industry education is key and you are always always learning. Everyday! And with that requires perseverance to reach goals. The industry of beauty is all about testing, pushing and surpassing barriers and boundaries. This industry is truly SWEET!!!!

Branson with Kirt Warner. He also got pics with Linart, Fitzgerald, Coach Wiz, and Morey. They were all so great to Branson especially Morey. Branson was really upset and crying because he felt to shy to ask for signatures on his shirt. Morey saw him and came over to chat with Branson and sign his shirt for him.

Brock in his "Baby leash" hanging out with Daddy.

I have no idea why I didn't go stand over by Bran. I was in such a hurry to help everyone get out of there that I gave Bishop Curtis the camera and I bolted into the pic. It was sooooo HOT out in the foyer.
Happy 8th Birthday James!!!!

Looks like a ton of fun, family, football- good to get away from the heat for a minute, eh? And I can't believe that James is 8!!! Crazy- Jocilyn keeps saying, "mom, you only have a year left to teach me everything I need to know!" (only a year before she's baptised...) the pressure is on!

Shawn and Tasha said...

Congrats on the baptism! I bet that was fun to have family in town. I can't believe your boys' big BLUE eyes! They're so beautiful! (your mom's comment is cracking me up! Oh I miss you guys...Mack attack! Okay,I think I'm gonna pee)

Tomorrow's the big day, right? I hope you post something!:) Good luck!!
