This picture was taken by Mom's Dad, Ron shortly after they were married. Don't they look smashing!?
Through the years of married life, they have added to their family. Joel is the eldest of their offspring, he just celebrated his 22nd birthday. Abby followed a couple of years later, I'm now 18. Caleb was born two years later and he's now 16.
Dad & Mom with Joel, Abby, Caleb & Phoebe. This was before the time of Johanna & Jaden.
Here we all are in our front yard getting a family picture taken. Jaden is about 2 years old in this one. You can tell that the 4 younger ones have done allot of growing. Caleb is as tall as Dad, Phoebe & Jo are both taller than me now. And, Jaden is not a baby anymore.
This is from a series of pictures we had taken on Thanksgiving day 2006 in downtown McKinney.
