So I got the best phone call after church 2 weeks ago. My cousin in Dallas called to tell me her friend was sick and she had an extra ticket for NKOTB concert that night. Needless to say I was changed and on my way directly!! I had wanted to get tickets for this so I was so pumped when Alexis called. It was so so so so much fun. The most fun I have had in a long time. I didn't get to see them back in the day so this was MAJOR for me. At one point we were so close we could touch them..and if it hadn't been for security I am pretty sure me and Alexis would've! Thanks to Alexis for this awesome opportunity and for my sweet darling Denny Frank for putting up with me is all I listen to and he has to get tired of it. This was the most fun I have had in a long time. I had to steal some of Alexis's close up shots because my camera had died by this point!

I didn't grow up in Gilmer..nor did I ever visit the Yamboree...but now it is the start of the holiday season for us. I love having the family and friends in..the change of the seasons just starting and the food of course. The kids totally are always stoked about being out of school. Jud and Jake rode the firetruck in the parade and Jaici was the princess on the FNB float..of course she looked beautiful. She couldn't wait to get all fixed up...but as soon as it was over she wanted her jeans and t shirt on. The weather was nice and seeing old friends and family..and meeting some new ones is always a highlight.

Happy Birthday Jaici!!

On October 1, 2001 I gave birth to the most precious dark haired blue eyed girl with the chubbiest cheeks on earth!!!! Little did I know she would be my only girl and that dark hair would turn blonde. How blessed I feel to have such a sweet spirit in our home.She definitly has her moments..but I have to hand it to her...she handles herself pretty well with all these boys around here.

We celebrated her birthday on October 4, 2008 here at our home with friends and family.Daddy had just built a new swing set and the weather was nice. She racked up on the goodies and Mommy made princess castle cake and the kids all got to take a shot at the pinatas. She is a sweet little angel and enjoyed every moment she could on her special day.
