Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Max, Becky and Family

We begin our family blog by celebrating the wedding of our first son Matthew to Melissa Raveston. They were married Saturday, August 23, 2008 in the Rexburg Temple in Rexburg, Idaho. This was such a special day for Max and I to see our first son married and it was also an extra tender day as Matthew married our new daughter-in-law Melissa in the same little Idaho town where Max and I met but also where Matthew was born!

Twenty six years ago Max and I met at BYU-Idaho, formerly Ricks College. After marrying in the Washington, D.C. Temple, we traveled back to Rexburg to finish school before heading down to BYU in Provo, Utah. While in Rexburg, Matthew was born and our little family began. It is true that when you have your first child, you think that time passes slowly but in a very short time, you realize that the days are quickly flying by.

Our second son, Alex was born 3 years later in Provo, Utah while Max was attending BYU working on his Masters degree. I don't think that there was ever a sweeter baby than Alex. He was always happy and loved to just cuddle and play all day. Matthew and Alex were the best of friends from the start and have remained that way to this day. It is a relationship that I have loved to see grow over the years.

After graduating from BYU, we moved to Idaho Falls, Idaho for Max's first job post graduation and Jennifer was born. What an exciting day that was as the radiologists who cared for us were sure she was another boy. We could not have been happier though. She was beautiful and pink and just so sweet.

Elizabeth came along 21 months later after we had moved back to Salt Lake City, Utah for employment and our family was complete. Elizabeth was born with bright red hair and was the most beautiful baby! Like Alex, she was always happy and content - not anything like the reputation of a redhead might lead you to believe!

So now our oldest son is married and we look forward to the day when we have little ones again to warm our hearts and our home. It is our hope that through this blog we can share the story of our family and keep in touch with those who are far away. We truly are blessed and thankful for the children we were given.
