All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

Happy Birthday Lauren!

She is an official teenager!





Yikes! Can you believe Lauren is 13 today? This past Friday night she had a BeautiControl Spa Party/Sleepover with some of her friends from church. She also invited the YW leaders since she is friends with all. We had a great time getting our faces cleaned, feet pamperin', lips peeled, and hands done too. Well, wait... they had a great time. I didn't do it. I refused. Hehe!! After the grown-ups left, the girls watched 2 movies. Unfortunately, Shawn had to work the next morning, so they couldn't be as loud as the wanted to be.

Tonight she wants Mexican casserole for her dinner, and a mint chocolate cake. I think I can do that. Mamaw took her shopping at Target last night, and got her 2 outfits, a swimsuit cover & a necklace. I got her a big duffle bag (hey, she wanted it!) for Girls Camp, and I will also get her a pair of new shoes for church. We just didn't have time to get to Dillards to try some on (where they have narrow shoes for her).
