A Thankful Heart For Family ~


Our Family began in June of 1967 when I was married to my dear husband Roger for Time and all Eternity in the Salt Lake Temple.
Children Are An Heritage From The Lord~
A year later we were blessed with our first baby boy in June of 1968. We named him
 Sean David.
Our second dear son was born in May of 1970, we named him
Travis McCall.
Four years later we were blessed with another baby boy in June of 1974 and we named him
James Christian
18 months later we were blessed with our first baby girl in December of 1975; we named her Christina Louise.
18 months later we were  blessed with a sweet baby girl  in June of 1977 and we named her Jenni-Marie.
Our caboose a baby girl was born 22 months later in April of 1979 and we named her
Tiffani Leigh.
We have been deeply blessed by a kind Father in Heaven with wonderful children.
Our six  children have all been married in the temple to outstanding 
sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father.
Our family tree has expanded to
31 children and 2 Great Grandchildren.

Hi LeAnn!

What a fun post, I love seeing pictures of the kids when they were small. I can see their own children in each of them!

Family is what it's all about - I love the song too. What a wonderful reminder to all of us to remember how grateful we are for our families, and to make sure we all work together to get to where we need to be . . . beautiful!

Hugs and Love,
Barb

Oh you have such a beautiful family! I didn't realize it was so big! And how wonderful to have all your children married in the temple! That is one of my biggest hopes for my kids. :)

What a beautiful family.... but then how could they not be with you as their mom. I've loved seeing all of the pictures. You must have had your hands full having them so close together.... but what a blessing.
I still think of our nice lunch and visit. I am so glad that I got to meet you in person. It is nice to know the wonderful person behind the wonderful blog. Have a good week. Hugs, Lura
