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.

Lindsey's Baptism Day!

February 2, 2012  I don't know how I forgot to blog about this, but I did.  Her birthday was on a Thursday, and Shawn just so happened to be off that day.  I wrestled in my mind as when it would be the best time and if I needed to tell Shawn way in advance to ask for a Sunday off, but in the end I chose her birthday day.  My Mom came up for it.  Dad was just to busy with work.  Josh was home too.  We always take the baptized child out to eat afterwards of their choice.  Lindsey chose Chick-fil-A.  I tried to get her to go elsewhere, but she insisted.  Lauren took the other kids home, and the 3 of us plus Josh and my Mom all went out.  Afterwards we went home for cake and presents.

A great day to be 8!!
