Well as you can see, I have some things to learn about spacing and photo placement on these posts. But here goes on a 2nd try. I saved early just so I didn't lose a lot of effort

Sean is our 3rd son and is student at BYU-Provo. He recently married (December 20, 2008) Krysten Knight. She is also a student there and is a sweet girl. We love her already. They are happy and in love and working hard.

I have been so impressed and amazed by my friends blogs that I have decided to try on of my own for our family. Jan and I have been married for 28 1/2 years and have 5 wonderful sons. I will start out by telling you a little about ourselves, for our family and our church service define us more than anything else in our lives.
We are both employed, Jan as an accountant for Jeppesen-Sanderson, and myself as a registered nurse with our local hospital. I take care of new moms and babies. We both serve in church, Jan as Sunday School president and I play the piano for the young childrens sunday classes.
We love our jobs, but as I said they do not define us and we are most happy at home with family and serving in the church.

Aaron and Susanna have been married for 4 years and Aaron is in the army stationed at Ft Stewart, Georgia. They are expecting twins in March named Levi and Amelia. We are so excited for this great event that we can hardly contain ourselves. They will be good parents and we miss them being closer but that will come soon as Aaron only has 1+ years left to serve his hitch. They have a cute apartment on post and I and Grandma June got to make a road trip in December to deliver baby furniture and clothes that the whole Rudd clan had gathered for these new babies. It was a long trip but absolutely worth it.

Owen is our 2nd son and is also in the army. He is posted to Presidio Monterrey, California and is in school there. He will graduate from his porgram in March and will move on to Goodfellow AFB for more training. He has blossomed emotionally and intellectually in this program and we are so proud for him and can't wait to see what the future has in store for him. This is a photo of him when we went for his graduation from basic training at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri.
