Welcome

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time. ~Clara Ortega

It's been a tuff day!

We're all smiles but our insides we're ripped apart.

To the son, brother, but mostly goofy little boy we all know best. We will miss you. Our beloved sibling Tanner has left us for the mission field. He will be serving where the Lord wants him to in the Cleveland, Ohio mission. I know how much we will all miss his easy going smile, silly nature, compassion, and strong presence. Most of all his glorious cup will miss Tanner's sweet lips that used to gently press against the top of his rim. A finer pair of lips has never graced said cup before. Our prayers will be with you till we meet again Elder Hansen.

HURRAH FOR ISRAEL! HURRAH FOR ISRAEL!




















































He had to get one last smooch in before he left for the mission. Now we all know where his love really resides. I hope it was a good one.
































































































Mom is a fantastic bowler. I bet you've never gotten three splits before. If you get four you win the prize.

Makana...so nice you say it twice! :)

So they only one that got a good-bye kiss was the scooter? At least Mom and Dad got hugs. Can't wait to hear from him.
