Happy Birthday Chad!

April is a busy month for birthdays in our family! Chad just celebrated his 27th birthday. We had cake, ice cream and presents. Chad's mom, Terry, and his grandmother, Pat, came to his little party. Chad has been such a blessing to our family and I really don't think Lauren could have ever found a better husband anywhere. He's such a wonderful Christian man and loves and takes great care of Lauren. He's the best son-in-law in the world and we love him dearly! Happy Birthday Chad!!!!!

Happy Birthday to the Best Mom in the World

Happy Birthday Mom! On April 17th my mom had her 84th birthday! No one can ever believe she is 84! She doesn't look it and she certainly doesn't act it! She is such a vivacious and happy person and is a phenomenal Christian woman on top of everything else. She's always there for us and gives of herself with total unselfishness! What a wonderful role model I've had all my life! She is always the life of the party and her positive outlook on life effects everyone she meets! She is truly a wonderful person and I love her dearly! Happy Birthday Frances Mama!

Easter Hunt and Ballgames

Thursday we went to Ellijay to watch Patrick and Ashley play ball. Papa and Mama loved it, even though the wind was a little cold. Ashley's team lost but she didn't really care. She had fun! Patrick's team won 30 to 4. He hit every time up to bat and actually got to slide in home a couple of times. What fun!

Ashley is heading for 3rd base. She's pretty darn fast!

Patrick had some really good hits. Look how intent he is on getting to the next base!

What a fun night! Sure am glad I don't have to get these kids cleaned up! They look like real ballplayers!

This is our crazy family, who all came to our house for Easter. We ate, hunted eggs and had a birthday party for Papa and Mama. So much family fun!!

Happy Birthday Daddy!!!

My dad just had his 87th birthday on April 11. He is such a special person to all of us! He is a wonderful Christian man who loves his family with all his heart! He has quite a sense of humor and is always joking with everyone! You never know what he'll come out with!!! As a little girl I remember him always singing "Birmingham Jail" to me. He took me fishing with him and I always wiped the worms off on my shirt before he baited the hook. I didn't want the fish to eat "dirty" worms. We used to go camping for vacation and spent many vacations in a tent. I remember when we got our first "pop-up" camper. Daddy always set it up by himself (with a little (very little) help from my brothers and I. He is a very special man and I love him with all of my heart!! Happy, happy Birthday!!!!
