Name those (former) Elders

Okay fellow N.A.M. survivors, can you name the two former elders in the pic below?

Oh well, I guess I'll just tell you. Friday night I drove down to Ogden and had dinner with James Clegg & Mike Kent and their families. It was a really fun evening and we definitely wished that more of you could be there. (You know who you are, McShiz, Faddy, Pope, and the list goes on and on and on.......) Well it was great to spend some time with a couple of the boys and to get to know their wives and children a little better! I've really missed you guys!

Anyway we decided that we definitely need to just take the initiative and pick a day and place and tell everyone to be there. So if you have any suggestions (and know how to get in touch with more people) let me know. We really are going to try and get together before we all get too old to remember any of the good stories. (Like I'm one to talk, I think I'm actually the oldest of the bunch, aren't I? YIKES!!!!)

Christmas Day Fun

This year we had both of our families come to our place for breakfast on Christmas Day. Then we opened presents. It was really low key, but really nice and lots of fun.

Travis with his brother, Shawn & his dad.

Crookshanks got a new blanket, which Trav's mom, Daniece made for him.

I think he likes it.

Happy Birthday Mom!

As many of you already know, my mom's birthday is Christmas Eve. So every year on Christmas Eve we have pretty much one tradition, Birthday cake, presents and then caroling to the neighbors. It's always fun. Anyway, Happy Birthday Cindy Sue!

According the candles on her cake, she was turning fifty-something, but I know for a fact, she just turned 51.

Travis & I bundled up to go caroling.

I've recently updated our online adoption profile. To view it go to, search adoption profiles and enter travisandcali. I'm open to feedback, so don't be afraid to tell me what you think. And remember to pass it along to anyone you know who might be considering adoption. Love to all!

New Pics of the Baby

Shiloh finally posted pictures of the new baby (and all the other kids) on her blog, so I stole one of my favorites for my blog. This is Lydia with Adam. I thought it was adorable, but then, I could be biased.

Come see me for your mortgage

By the way! I almost forgot to put in here that I got a new job two weeks ago. I'm working as a loan officer at United Mortgage. So when you're ready to buy a house or refinance, come see me and I'll get you all set up. It's been great so far, I absolutely love the company and the people I work with have been incredible. It's nice to be doing something I love. And it's been really fun to be able to help people purchase their own little piece of America. Anyway I love it, it's been great!

Welcome Baby Adam!

Don't get excited, this isn't our baby! But it is exciting because on December 2, my sister, Shiloh, gave birth to her sixth child. They named him Adam Jennings Guffey. I'm sorry I don't have any better pics of him, but here's one of mom and baby shortly after he arrived. I'm so excited he's here and can't wait to have an excuse to go across the country and visit him. Anyway, thought y'all should know.
