Noah's Birthday Party!!!

Here are some belated birthday party pictures from Noah's party at the race track. He has so much fun and so did we as you can see in the pics. After the kids were through riding the adults rode. Guys vs. guys and girls vs. girls!!! It was so fun....I don't think I have ridden a go cart since junior high!!!
Something funny to share about the decorations was the pit passes I made for the kids. My brother happened to be down that morning so I had him do me a pit pass in word and him being anal like me on stuff like that he worked so hard to get the checkered boarder just right and the font and it looked great. We then emailed it to Marc so he could print them out and laminate them to put on the strings so they could wear them around their neck. WELL....I get to the party and Marc hands me the pit passes and the boarder on them was FLAMINGOS!!!! WHAT????? Where the heck did our neat checkered boarder go??? Marc says I am OCD when it comes to parties and he is right....!!!!!! SO, my cute little pit passes were a bust!!!!

Old Friends and turning 35!!!!

We went out Saturday to celebrate my best friend Kim's birthday......she is so old....she turned 35!!!!! Actually all three of us in the picture turned 35 this year. Mine was May 15th, Crystal's was May 25th and Kim's was July 11th. We have been friends since about 2nd grade!! I think it is so neat that we are all such good friends still and are raising our kids together and they are all friends. Kim's little girl is a little out numbered with the six boys between the three of us. Here is a picture of the three of us Saturday night!

4th of July 2008 Payton and Candace's House

We went to Carmine to vistit my mom and step dad for the weekend of 4th of July and spent one day at my brother and sister in law's new house in Austin. We grilled hamburgers and the boys played with water balloons. The boys spent the night with Uncle Pete and Aunt Candace and had a great time. That is all they have talked about since coming home. After they got back to Carmine I made Noah and Jesse model for me in Mom's truck. They only KIND OF cooperated....I actually had to pay Noah $5 to model. He wanted $20!!!!! Anyway, I think some of them turned out pretty neat. The first pictures are of our day at Payton's!!!

Second Baptist Church Ground Breaking Service

This morning our family attended the ground breaking service for our new church. It was a great service and we are so blessed to be a part of it all!!! I can't wait for the new building to be built and to see how many lives are changed through Second Baptist. I know this church has changed our lives. As my kids shoveled some of the dirt I was thinking about how Noah and Jesse collected change that they found in the dryer over a few months time and how Taylor tithed 10% of his birthday money and how from those contributions they have helped make all this happen. Even if it is a small portion!!! As one lady said in our home meetings...."They have ownership in our new beauitful church." WOW!!! That is so true!! Here are some pictures I took this morning. One was taken from the car as we were waiting in traffic to get in to park. I was so excited to see all the cars, the tent, and the big trucks and to know that is my family's church home!!!
