My Man is OLD!

July brought a trip to Amarillo. Randon's mom's family was having their annual reunion, Randon's birthday, and Fourth of July. We celebrated Randon's 30th, that's right, I said THIRTY!!!, birthday. We celebrated with his family on his actual birthday, then the next day with my family. The next day was July 4th, and we shuffled back and forth between family celebrations. I headed home in the middle of the week to work, then went back. While I was home, I painted Reese's room. We moved her from a toddler bed to a full size...she has a new Big Girl Room. We had a great time in Amarillo swimming, fishing, almost felt like a real vacation!

We're Back!!!

That's right...NEW POST button. Let's just say this particular computer mouse hasn't clicked on that button for a while now. But school has started and we're getting into a new routine (hopefully one that includes more frequent blog entries). Our summer has been crazy busy! I have a lot to catch you up on, so hold on and enjoy the ride....

Jessilyn turned 5 on June 15! We had a great party. This was her first "friend" birthday party since we've moved to Midland. For the past two years, we have just celebrated with family in Amarillo. But Little Miss Social has now made way too many friends to not invite them over for a party. MiMi and Marlie, and Gran and Gabe all came down. We played on the water slide, drove the Jeep, jumped on the trampoline, and threw water balloons. Opened WAY too many gifts, then topped it off with cookie cake and ice cream sundaes just before some nasty weather blew in. Jessilyn got her first American Girl doll, Kit Kittredge. She was SOOOO excited! What a great day, and what a great girl! She truly is a little light that shines full of the joy of Jesus! I love her!!!!
