“There is no other organization that can so completely satisfy our need for belonging and happiness like the family. Why do we yearn for home and loved ones? I believe this yearning is a universal, God-given instinct that all people in all cultures are blessed with. I also believe that a loving Heavenly Father gives it to us because within the family we experience most of life’s greatest joys. The sights, sounds, and associations of family and home are among our most treasured memories and provide our fondest anticipations.”

  1. Love the pic! Which one is you??? The quote is so true! I feel that way about my own family. And when we get a big group picture, it never ceases to amaze my about what can happen when families love and care for each other.

  2. Dane is holding Tracy’s baby Ava. There are so many missing from that picture…Beckham and Lily, baby Chompy, Amy’s Caelin, Tracy’s Chloe, some new wives and my mama.

    Funny what a few years can do.

    Plus–that one chick is a heck of a lot skinnier now! heh, heh, heh.

  3. Welllll…hard to admit, but I’m the fluffy one in the front on the right. HOWEVER–I have lost over 50 pounds since this picture–so I take up significantly less space now.
