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.

Miss Relay For Life Pageant 2011

Small southern towns = pageants for everything!! This year was the 1st ever Miss Relay For Life Pageant. All monies that were paid into the pageant, either contestants or audience was donated to cancer research. Lauren decided to enter this one, and do the talent portion as well. She didn't place in beauty wise, even though we all know she should have won,
but won in talent for her age group.
Playing "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera.
The girls in her group. The first one on the left won. The girl in blue was 1st runner up, and the 1st girl on the right was 2nd. Lighting was very bad except for Lauren (red) and the girl in blue (I think her name is Emily... or it could
be Madison, can't remember).
Lauren and her trophy for best talent.
Lauren really wants to model, or at least send her picture to a modeling agency. I have found a few- Ford, Kim Dawson. Kim Dawson is based out of Dallas. Call-backs are every Tuesday, so if I *were* to do it, it would have to be during the summer so we
can go without her missing school.
She is 5'8". What do you think?

And on Jan 25th, she got her official drivers permit.
She is so excited. Am I excited?!? Haha!!
She also landed a *very* part-time job with one of the flower
shops here in town. She starts Saturday.
