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.

SnOw DaYs, JaN 9-11

The snow started falling about 1:20pm on January 9th. It snowed hard for almost 5 hours, then off and on until the next morning. School was cancelled Monday and Tuesday, but kids went back Wednesday & Thursday, and they already had a scheduled day-off on Friday. Snow stayed on the ground until Saturday afternoon when it warmed up to the 40s-50s.

Shawn said this was the most snow he has ever seen here, and his parents have been on the land since 1971. It did snow last year, but nothing like this. Josh has been waiting for it to snow like this since we moved here in 2005, and only times so far have been the 2 times while he has been on his mission.
