20 years ago TODAY... 
I got this adorable BUNDLE!! 
He was born in AGANA, GUAM! 
I think he likes it when people look at him funny and ask 
"WHERE is GUAM???"
This is when he won a national baby contest! 
Poor thing was asleep when they CROWNED HIM!!
My uncle is holding my little "Country Gal" 
My Little Sis is on the right next to 
I LOVE his cute wrinkled nose here!!
Yes, I DID torture him... a LOT! BAHAHA!!
He REALLY hates this outfit I MADE him wear!!
Single MOMMA days... 
See the spot I tried to cover where he chopped his bangs?
4th of July Bike Parade!!  ;D
Such a cute little cub scout!!  ;D
(Hey CHEESEBOY!! Going to CA Adventure, TOO? LOL!!)
He's a great brother...
The dogs LOVE him!!
Yes!! Jake is HIS BABY!!!
This dog almost DIED (LITERALLY) 
when he left for college!! 
Jake snapped out of it... he came home on the weekend!
The greeting he'd get when he came home from school.

This would be his BEST friend since we moved back to UT!!
They are QUITE the characters!!
(This is the same friend starring in his clip at the bottom!)
He did PRODUCTIONS through High School
They did about 5 different productions each school year!
He was the lead in "Mike's Case"
(Too bad I can't post the best pix due to 
"She who should NOT be mentioned... 
and wouldn't want to TAINT my BLOG!)
He thoroughly enjoyed ALL aspects of Productions! 
He gave me a WHOLE 15 minutes 
to do his Senior Pix... BRAT!
He's LUCKY it worked out!!

The guy on the right is my son-in-law!
THESE would be the cuties he is FAVORITE UNCLE to!
Took him to NYC during Spring Break for graduation!
He is now majoring at the UofU in FILM STUDIES
Did you miss his AWESOME 5 min assignment? 
This is probably the most recent photo... 
Here he is with 13 yr old "Stitch Kid"
I can just hear him NOW!!! 
When he SEES THIS!!! 
"WHY MOM??? WHY??? 
Because I LOVE YOU and
