"Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children and others throughout the generations. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events." --President Spencer W. Kimball

Oldies but Goodies....

So I was deleting old files from my work computer today and I ran across some old pictures that I haven't seen for a long time... I must have spent a good chunck of time looking through all of them, reminissing and smiling about the memories of the pictures.... some when Ova and I first got married (the skinny days)....some from when our kids were first born, and when they were growing up. I can't believe how fast time flies right by. Now we have a 6 year old, a 3 year old and one on the way. I'm so glad I ran across these pictures....made a long day at work a little more enjoyable!

The Fangupo cousins back in 2007...


This is one of my favorites from when Filimone was only an hour old, precious father son moment...

And last, but not least...the brotherly love picture!


This is why I LOVE taking pictures so much.... you can put them away for a long long time and when you find them, you can reminiss and remember even the little things about the day the picture was taken, feelings and all. Looking back at all these pictures, I can't believe how fast time has flown right by and how big and grown my boys are now. I'm such a proud mom/wife and I love my little family more than anything!!
