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.

Kristen is 8!

Krissy wanted her party this year at the bowling ally. I gave in, even though like most know, I am poor. Poor child really hadn't had a party before at some place cool with her friends. We invite 9, and only 4 came, so it was perfect! We had a great time.
Krissy & friend, Kara.
The gang that hung out... Kara, Krissy, Carter, Lindsey, Jacob, Cole & Camron
Singing before blowing out the candles on the "Alice the Fairy" Cake (BTW, Alice the Fairy is being sold at Sams... such a cute book!). What is an "Alice" cake? In the book, Alice is trying to do real magic to become a permanent fairy, but she can only do "temporary fairy" things, like turning oatmeal into cake... thus the Alice cake: Oatmeal Cake!
Opening the cool presents from everyone!!
The guys had all they could take... Pokemon Cards had to come out!
