"You don't just marry the man, honey . . . . you marry the FAMILY"

September 24, 1948

I married a great family.

I could not have ordered up better in-laws

Tom and Lois Freeman

Aren't they cute?


Tom was a football player


They had 5 children.

I married number three.

Blythe, CA 1963 - Tom & Lois with Robert, Steve, Donald, LaRee and Ralph

Rather than launch into a LONG list of accolades,

suffice it to say,

They are wonderful

and I am lucky


Happy Anniversary Tom & Lois !

I love you

Aw! Happy Anniversary! I sure am glad they decided to get married. They have such great posterity and I LOVE being a part of it all :)

Happy Anniversary number 61, Mom and Dad. You two are a cute couple and wonderful parents. I am still learning very valuable lessons from you.
Dad, take Mom to Chili's tonight. (actually if you go at night Mom should take Dad)
I love you!

It's so fun to see all these old pictures. It makes is easier to see where all the kids and grandkids (and great grandkids) get certain features.
Happy Anniversary to them :-)!

About Me

My photo
I married my high school sweetheart 34 years ago in the LDS Temple. I have 4 children (3 married, and a 14 year old) and 6 grandchildren. I lived my entire life in California, until 6 years ago. I now reside in San Antonio, Texas. The most important thing to me is my family; I have invested the most in them and it has paid great dividends. I love doing anything creative that beautifies my surroundings and I love nature. I minored in Art and majored in Interior Design at BYU, yet, my profession is a Tax Preparer.
