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.

Shawn had to go get 7 stitches today. Last year about this time, I had to take Lauren in to get 6 stitches for almost shooting her eye out (Look @ Nov. 2007 blog). Today Shawn was sawing off some branches to put up a deer stand for the hunters (for Thanksgiving), and sliced/sawed his finger @ the knuckle to the bone! It was rather gross. I had just put the kids down for a nap, and with Shawn's mom in the hospital (knee surgery for those that know her, and didn't know... she'll be home in a few days... doing good!), I had no choice but to stay here and make him drive himself into ER. Oh, well. I got a good nap while he was gone. ;-)

I like the last line, too.

I mean, it wasn't even a power tool, Shawn :).
