Off on a much needed long weekend...

Me and my man that I love soooo much are off for a much needed weekend together at the beach. Our life is so busy that sometimes we take each other for granted ,(I am way more guilty than he is), so we are really looking forward to some "alone" time to just reconnect. I love him so so much and I think he is just incredible!!! And on sunday we will meet up with Jacy and Alvin in Rockport, Texas for some fishing. We will both have our cell phones in hand in case Astrud calls , Gretchyn is going to Nonny and Poppy's so we are off.....see you all on monday. Love you all!!

(the puppy is my friend Jacy's mothers dog Maggie)

Astrud and Emily are off........Please keep them in your prayers...

Astrud and Emily right before they boarded the plane for their mission trip. These girls are amazing and they have true hearts for their creator. May God bless them and keep them safe while they are teaching people about his grace and love. And say a prayer for this momma.....she is learning to let go and let God.

Hugging her Daddy!

Steven and Megan's Wedding #2

For those of you that have been following my blog for the last two years you might remember that two years ago in August our boys Christopher and Steven got married a week apart. Frank and I along with my sister Kerry put together a beautiful outside wedding in 6 days for Steven and Megan. Steven was on leave from his 2nd tour in Iraq. As parents of a soldier you have to realize the probability that your son might not come home and it was so important to me that Frank and I see him get married to the woman he loves. So we had a very beautiful and intimate wedding and two days later he left to go back to Iraq. Megan wanted to have a wedding with the dress and all that goes with it so her and her family has been planning this wedding for about the last year. It was beautiful. And we are so thankful that God brought him home and gave us this day. There are alot of pictures to look at because I am one proud Mom!!! I hope you enjoy them. (just click on the picture if you want to see it better)

Here is our family.....these kids own our hearts!!!! Megan is not in this picture because this was taken before the wedding, but as soon as I get the pic with her in it I will post it. Aren't they all just beautiful!!!! Franceska will soon be home and I am sure they will be fighting over who gets to hold her.....they dont know it but her Mommy will win!!!!
We tried so hard to get my mom to stay still for a picture but this was as good as we could get. She looked so beautiful
Love love love this picture!!!
More of our kids...sorry I never get tired of taking their picture!!!
