"You have nothing in this world more precious than your children. When you grow old, when your hair turns white and your body grows weary, when you are prone to sit in a rocker and meditate on the things of your life, nothing will be so important as the question of how your children have turned out. It will not be the money you have made. It will not be the cars you have owned. It will not be the large house in which you live. The searing question that will cross your mind again and again will be, How well have my children done?"

~President Gordon B. Hinckley

Returning with Honor

The countdown in ON!!
Tomorrow morning, at approximately 10am we will pick Elder Nick Becker up from the airport after serving an honorable mission in
Bahia Blanca, Argentina!
We are SO proud of our missionary and are very anxious to see him again. When he left, the 3 musketeers(Keat, Aiden, and Kolby) were about 9 or so months old...now they are almost THREE!
We have 2 new nephews to introduce him to, and his very first niece to show off!
As excited as we are to tell him about what has gone on the last two years, we are more excited to hear of his experiences as he has served Heavenly Father in this great capacity!
We have been blessed for his service and we pray for safe travels this night and happy landings tomorrow as the Becker's make their way to the airport!!
We love you Uncle Nick!!

Just in time for Christmas! He is going to have the same problem as Seth. He looks SUPER young for his age! Have fun getting together when he comes home! My brother comes back in May! Can't wait!

How fun to have him home for Christmas. There's nothing like having a just returned missionary around. I love how spiritual they are and continue to be as they slowly adjust to the "real" world.

Thanks for your comment, a little exaggeration on the supermodel part (well ofcourse I think so about my girls, but not me). But thanks, your nice.

I can't believe the resemblance with him and Seth!! South American missions are awesome. Matt went to Chile. There is so much success there, so many opportunities to see people's lives change.
