Eleven years ago today...

I married my Sweet Potato.  



(Sorry for the bad scans.  I was doing this w/ my printer/scanner on my bedroom floor and my 8 month old "helping" me!   Needless to say, I was scanning as fast as I possibly could!)





Four states and five kids later, we're still going strong. 


I love you!

Boring Blog

I must have the most boring blog out there.  At least in the realm of active blogs that is.  Before I found where some of my traffic was coming from, or more precisely what they were looking for, I was really getting into the whole blogging thing and trying to be more creative.  But now...  I'm leary of writing anything that might bring the undesirables back.  Speaking of which, I need to go check out my flickr account and see exactly what's happening to my photos.  blah! 


I do have something fun to add but it deserves it's own entry soooo.... Be looking for something of some interest to someone tomorrow.  Which is really today when most of you will be reading this.

Please Pray

For a sweet friend.  Although I've never met her irl, she is a friend nonetheless.  She has had soooo much going on in her life lately and needs to be lifted up.  If you have time, leave her a message to let her know you all are praying!
