It's my Family!

So we are a crazy bunch! We have named ourselves the LOUD family!
Oh if you only knew us you would know why. It seems the more we talk the louder we get, and the more opinionated! It is true, but to know us is to LOVE us!

Yes, I have finally begun a blog. The turning point was when Danie Marie, my adorable 16 year old put hers up! Is that what it comes to, I have to compete with my 16 year old? Heavens...

Let me tell you a little about MYSELF.

I was born in England, an Army brat. I love that I was born there although I have only been there once since I was 2. Boy I wish I had that accent! Love IT! I lived in Arizona most of my life and would love to end up there. Give me a break...It is a DRY heat!

I am living in NJ with my husband of 22 years (amazing right?) and 2 of my four kids. Danie Marie and our own Taylor-tots. David, my oldest son and Arli my oldest daughter both live away from home...I miss them but I am happy for their adventures, and Trust Me they have them!

David, my oldest, is 21. He is an adorable young man 6'5" tall. We are not sure where he got those genes, but we love it. He lives in NY right now just here from Texas. I think in a couple of months he will be back to Utah. I can never keep it straight!

Arli, our 19 year old is in Rexburg at BYU-I. She is engaged to be married this winter to a nice young man, Jake Olson. We have a lot to do before then, but I am looking forward to a fun wedding. They will both attend BYU-I, Arli to go into teaching and Jake wants to be a doctor...

I cant believe this new phase in life
Get ready! The gory details to follow! Come on how could I not share?


Danie Marie is a junior this year and has plans of glory! I know she will have a wonderful year, she is a wonderful girl! She inspires me!

Taylor-tots is a 7th grader in all her long legs and talk about boys! She is delightful and funny, sometimes too funny for her own good!

This is just the begining...stay tuned!


  1. I am soooo glad that you crossed over to the dark side. Welcome! I love blogging (be aware you may become addicted very quickly, I totally did!!)

    I still remember our YW days back in PA. Those were the days, right! It seriously seems like it was last week vs over 10 yrs ago!

  2. Lorri, What a great site. I think this was a great idea and it totally suits you. I actually just started a blog on here too, about two or three weeks ago. It will take us some time to get it going.
    We love you and keep the updates coming.

  6. I am so excited to see you started one too! The kids are amazingly big. Arli - engaged? David - a return missionary?? And Danielle & I can say is HOLY COW! I remember them so little at our special "primary reception," dancing around me in my wedding dress! I am glad you are all doing so well.
