Since Russ always does the posts, I thought I'd take a minute to show exactly why I think he is the best thing around.
Here's some prize winning pictures of my dear husband. I love that he is always the life of the party, and is always willing to play my games (or anyone else's for that matter) in order to bring a smile to someone's face. Enjoy, because these pics might be gone when he sees them:). On a serious note, Russ is my best friend, and the greatest eternal companion I could have. I always feel good going anywhere standing next to him knowing how other people are just drawn to him and he has a gift of making people feel better when they are around him. So, here's to you Russ:). And Russ, if you don't like this, I apologize, but that's what you get when you leave me on a Saturday to go to your basketball game and won't be home until 2:00am. What else am I suppose to do:).
(P.S.-Russ is helping our brother in law Joe coach JV b-ball again at the high school-undefeated so far:)

The Halloween picture Russ said he wouldn't post:)
*For your viewing pleasure*

Russ read a story to all the kids at our ward Christmas party that took place in Book of Mormon times. They said he was like Samuel the Lamanite, and our good brother in law Joe loudly said "Where's my bow and arrow?" They truly have a unique friendship:)
Halloween 2006. He didn't want Cody to feel odd being the only pumpkin in the family:). This one's for you-Autrey family!

We got invited to a murder mystery dinner party. Our characters (that we had to dress up as) were Tiara Diamond-Miss Kansas City 1959, and Ivan Spudnik-a Russian rocket scientist. Note Russ' disheveled hair:) P.S.-You would've loved Russ' Russian accent!

Russ is always GOOD TIMES...GOOD TIMES
