Krysta Wogen

Friday's Fabulous Flyer


Happy Birthday Baby!

October 18, 1985 I was giving birth to our youngest daughter. Third time is a charm and we were definitely blessed with this baby. Goofy was the perfect costume for her because she has always made us laugh. A great sense of humor. Beautiful. And smart... what can we say?

From her high school job of nanny to her grown up job of teacher. Krysta holds a Masters in Education and is married to Torrey. She has lived and worked in Seattle, Chicago and now Austin. She decided to go to school in Chicago... and off she flew. She worked hard, studied hard, played hard... and has created a beautiful life for herself. 

We wish they all lived closer to Seattle... but she is happy and that's what counts.


Krysta with her Dad and her son Carter with Grampy

She has a wonderful family...

But her most important contribution(s) to the world is she is she's an incredible mother to Carter and soon Hayden... due in January.

Her Dad and I are so proud of her and the woman she has become. And while we are in Bend babysitting her niece and nephew on her special day, I will see her next week. We'll go on our birthday date and play with Carter.

Happy Birthday Krysta! 


We love you!
XOX Mom and Dad

  3. Thanks for sharing the wonder family notes - and pix with us, Karlene. What a wonderful tribe you and Mr. P. have created. Handsome, healthy and happy is one thing, but the grand kids are toooo cute. You got it right on those landings and no go around is necessary. -C.
