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.

Accident-prone kid!

The Thursday after Labor Day the kids were outside playing. Kids were playing on our jungle gym playground, and Joey was up on top playing with the "boat wheel." He was kneeling on his knees, looking below and just kinda fell over, doing a flip. He landed right on his face from what I was told. All I heard was "MOM, BLOOD, FELL, TEETH, DIRT" and screaming. So after cleaning him up and making sure there were no broken bones or teeth, we saw there were lots of scratches and a swollen lip and a bloody nose. The next morning he went to school, and he looked rough.
But a week later he was good as new.
And then we went to Sams. And he and Jacob decided to run around on the slippery concrete floor that had just been redone with the remodeling. And Joey fell. And there was blood everywhere. And it was after hours on Friday night. And so we went to Target to get some butterfly stitches/closures.
And then he was good as new.
