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.

This year was another successful Halloween! Better then before because I actually made 2 costumes for Lauren & Kayley (pictures to come later, maybe), and I did make-up, and helped carve a few pumpkins. We had a great Halloween party at the church, and the kids scored on the candy!
Joey didn't go to the party as Mamaw decided to stay home. But he wanted his picture taken too... and I Photoshopped some red hair & mostache on him! He loved it!

Fall pictures

I had this plan on doing my own fall pictures, and making them all cute on Photoshop, and then downloading them to Walgreens, but not all turned out as expected. I did for the most part redo them in color. They turned out cute, and if you get a Christmas card from me this year, you will see the end result.

Had to throw this one in of my ELDER son... he is still in the Pocatello area, and he says he was teaching a couple of "pumpkin heads"! He loves his mission!
