Cuteness in a green sweater

Ready for Daddy to be home

We miss you, Daddy! Can't wait for you to be home!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I remember being in elementary and making Valentine's for everyone in my class. Ah the memories. Although Dallas has given Valentines each year he has been in school, this year he was much more engaged. It was a lot of fun letting him pick out each card for his friends and watching him get excited about the thought of giving them out tomorrow. Sweet.

Here are Dallas' Valentine's for his school friends.

Which one should I choose for Mrs. BevAnn? (Dallas' teacher)

Notice with this picture and every one after, the bag of chocolate is nearby.

Mommy wrapped my Valentine's Box, and I helped with the tape

Chocolate. What chocolate???!!!!

Each Valentine sealed with a kiss!

Family Pictures

Here's my friend, Amy. Before this day, we hadn't seen one another since May 2000. Wow, 8 years! She actually transferred in to ETBU my last semester. One of my friends where no time was lost, we had a great lunch, and learned we only live about 20 miles from one another. I'm blessed to have her back in my life!

Dallas is crazy about playing the drums, so instead of playing on his toy buckets, Gigi and Papaw got him the Real McCoy!

Daddy instructing Dallas on how to play the drums.

I think I've got the hang of this :)

Here Dallas and I am at the Dr. Suess play. We had such a great time!

This was the night we went to Lindale for the HS play Horton and the Who's by Dr. Suess. Dallas was captivated by the play, and when we got home was excited to read his Cat in the Hat book.


Only counting since we've been married, Tyler makes the 5th place we've lived in almost 6 years of marrige. I'm so tired of moving...sigh. It's been kind of lonely at times. I've met some really great friends along the way, but it has been rather hard with this move to really get to know people. My job keeps me kind of isolated, so I haven't met anyone really. Of course I'm close to Amanda so we spend a lot of time together, it's been really good to have Eden close to Dallas too for a playmate. I think beside her and Ken, Adam and I have been rather isolated and haven't really met many people we would consider to be friends. We've been really praying about it, just to meet some Godly Christian couples to hang out with and spend time getting to know, it seems each place we move we have met these kind of people. And as of the past month, Tyler has been no different. We have been visiting Bethel Bible, and I think the first thing we both noticed about them was EVERYONE was very friendly. I've joined a women's bible study, and in addition to church and SS, Adam and I have been visiting a home group, the hosts lee and donna are just super friendly and warm. Everyone there has made us feel welcomed. It's good to be around people with genuine hearts, and I'm really thankful that God has given us a new family to " do life with."
This morning I went to the doctor. I've been having some pain in my arm and wrists/palms. It isn't carpal tunnel, but the doctor suspects some increased amt of pressure has affected my nerve around my ulna. I've been having some numbness and tingling in my ring and pinky finger...she prescribed some steroids for anti inflammatory purposes. Just trying to keep as much pressure off of it as possible. Well see how this tx goes...
