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.

First Deer of the Season!

*WARNING* Pictures do contain some blood of a dead doe.
Joey with his mask on. He didn't have a fever on this day, but I wanted to make sure he wasn't spreading whatever he had on to his Papaw.
Cali and Ollie lovin' this doe. It was hilarious to watch Cali.
Zoe just standing there hoping that something would fall off.
Cali hanging on, and Ollie grabbing the leg. Really wish I had a movie camera... could have sent this in to AFV. Seriously, it was hilarious!
Awwwwwwwwww, the proud hunter!

Next to one of those big wind power things! Just like west Texas!
Elder Miller and companion, Elder Hernandez, had to go to Idaho Falls, and they drove up a large hill, or mountain as he calls it, and saw snow for the first time in his life! He has seen "Texas" snow, but nothing like real north snow! He says it's cold, and he hates it!
About 2-3 days before it snowed, or where he saw the snow, he was doing a service project. He wanted us to see him using a tractor like ours.


Jacob is 11! He wanted a chocolate cake with a peanut butter filling.
I did a sugar-free chocolate fudge w/Cool Whip frosting, which was really good!
Joey was sick, and getting over his fever...
but he still wanted to help blow out the candles!
Lindsey lost her first 2 bottom teeth on the same day!
