So we took these pictures about 2 weeks ago. Jolie (this is Christys youngest) is about 3 months older than Eldon. When you pick up Jolie she is super light and Eldon feels like a sac of potatoes. We wanted to see how close in size they are to eachother. We weighed them also and they were within a pound of eachother. They were so sweet together, smiling, talking, and holding hands. I am so glad that we are staying here for school so Eldon can have a better relationship with his cousins.
To catch everyone up, I have gone back to work in the salon. I love it! Cory watches the baby while I'm gone. Cory graduated for ASU in May with a BA in Exercise and Wellness but he has to take 2 more classes for AT Stills.
So not a lot has changed, we're still busy with school and work and baby.
My husband and I were married in November of 2004 in beautiful Sedona, AZ. We currently reside in Mesa, where Cory attends grad school AT Still University. He is studying to become a physical therapist.
I am a hair stylist and currently working at opening my own salon in Gilbert.
We have a little boy named Eldon Charles, who takes up every minute of my day. He is so amazing. I love being a wife and a mommy.
"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing Sister Schenk's lawn. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someones garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived." -Marjorie Hinckley
