For all you math Dorks out there...

Okay, so it's been a while and a lot has been going on, both externally and internally!

I had to post this picture to show what a horrible mother I am to make my kids wear these shirts to Cam's little birthday get together.

So a couple of weeks ago I went to the Texas annual math conference for educators. This year it was in San Antonio...can you say river walk? It was really a nice get away, but it was also lots of fun to think math for a while...before you laugh, remember that you probably have more friends than you know who either were there...or wanted to be there. By the way, if you were honest with wanted to be there too, huh? I KNEW IT!

I saw these adorable case you missed it they say 'MY MOMMY ROCKS MATH'...LOL! I got me a one that is blingy that says math rules with a crown on it! FUN!

One of my friends said, "Do you think Cameron will wear it?" To which my response was..."If it's the only shirt I send to church camp with him he will." Is that evil? Before you call CPS I sent several other shirts and put that one in his bag labeled extra shirts.

I just had to share with y'all! I love the shirts, and I think they missed me enough that when I asked if they would wear them to the party...they agreed!

I will post pictures from his party another day!

I can't believe she's already 8...

Okay, so June 30th was Kennedy's 8th birthday...WOW! I am speechless at how time has flown by. I know it's already July 10th and I am just now getting to post about how great her "family" party went...but here it is:

Her cake was a pink and brown cowgirl cake made with love by Grammi

MMMMMmmmmm....that was good! Trust me...there's no proof, but they were the best cupcakes EVER!

We had our family come over for hot dogs, cake, ice cream and gifts...FUN!

Here is Cameron and Kiki's cousin, Hayden:

Then there's her brother, Cameron...stay tuned for his birthday fun coming up later this month:

Of course the BIRTHDAY GIRL:

Other adult family members...


the proud parents of our baby girl:

One of the things that make her so unique are how giant her heart is. We often wonder how such a big heart is contained inside such a small body...but those people that really know her know she's such a sweet and compassionate little girl.

She will give anything of hers up to help others if she is asked and sometimes she's the one who asks if she can...she is amazing and we love her soo much.

Happy Birthday Kennedy...Mom and Dad Love you sooooo much!

The two shall become one...

I am participating in the Completing him challenge from the Women Living Well blog. Each week we are given something to do on our blog to grow our marriage. I am a week behind, but better late than never. I have had VBS and Weeblos camp (that's a whole other blog...soon) the last two weeks...but I'm back and ready to go...

I am on the week where we are to post pictures and describe our wedding story. So here it goes...

So after Jayson asks me to marry him and of course I said yes, we decide on a fall wedding. We were married October 16, 1999. Yea...right before Y2K! It was such a great date.

We got married at Little Hope Baptist Church in Canton...I know the name is crazy "Little Hope", but I can tell you that we both had great hope...and have now been married for 10 years.

My bridesmaids were Jayson's twin sisters, Malissa and Leslie,my friend Shanna, and my 8 month pregnant cousin, Jennifer! Jayson's groomsmen were some of his high school friends...including one that is like his brother who we call Swanny! (Swanny is in the Air Force and was secretly flown in to be in the wedding party) Jayson had no idea...that was fun!

The most stressful part of our wedding was when one of his groomsmen was like 30 minutes late and the wedding was about to begin and he was still not wedding coordinator lady wanted to go without him, Jayson did not and all I was saying was do whatever Jayson wants to do.

But, the messages from me to him were getting all confused...kind of like when you were a kid and played the game telephone and by the time the message got around the circle it was a total different that...but he finally got there and the wedding was me anyway!

Here we are lighting the unity candle:

I truly feel it is God's plan for us to be united here on earth. We are currently going through major God changes and are growing everyday together in Christ. I feel like God has been in our marriage from the beginning but had to prepare our hearts for what is about to happen in our lives. We are ready to give it all for Him and we are excited to see what the next 10 years hold for us, our children, and our journey with God!
