About Me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Emmaline's first birthday was a fun, but small gathering. We invited the Carr's, Jeremy's boss, Jim, wife Becky, daughter Kellie and granddaughter Gracie. We also invited a friend from Church. Gina and her daughters Ashlynn and Raina. Emma wasn't really impressed, I don't think she really understood what was going on. Much to Kellie's dismay, we didn't let her destroy her first birthday cake! But she did steal some of Ashlynn's cake. She sure was pretty in her new dress that Nana, my mom, made for her. Haydn and Weldon also received presents from Becky and they were in heaven! It was like christmas in August.
