Happy Birthday, Mom!

Today my mom is celebrating her birthday! I want to wish her a very happy birthday and send her cyber hugs and kisses! I wish I could be there with her, but for now this will have to do. Mom is so giving and the most unselfish person I know! I hope I have an ounce of that when I have my own kids! Thanks, Mom, for all you do for Flint and I. We love you! This is a picture of us at my Granny and Grandpa Tapp's house a couple of Thanksgivings ago. Flint could not go because he was in bed with dry sockets after having his wisdom teeth taken out.

Sic'em Bears!

Well, it is official. Flint accepted a job with Baylor over the weekend. He will be heading southbound 35 in just a couple of weeks to start his new job. It was an opportunity he could not pass up! We are excited but, there are lots of other emotions as well. Of course we are sad to be leaving Northwest Arkansas, which has been home to us for 10 years. This is where we met, fell in love, and what we know. We will also be leaving behind some of our best friends, the house we built, and the HOGS! It is so weird to think about living in Texas and not being able to go to every Razorback game?!?! There are so many things I am going to miss, but for now we are looking ahead and are excited!

This has been such a long process, but it took this long for God to get us where HE wanted us!!! I am in amazement at His hand in this whole transition. It has been made very clear that this is where the Lord wants us for now a (although at times we were wonding why we have to pick up our lives here and go to Waco, TX?!?!) I am so thankful for His love and faithfulness. He even cares about the places that we live!

Lately, I have been trying to clean up some of the many piles that I have just put into a closet or pushed under the bed for so long! Not any more! I am turning a new leaf! In the process I have found all of my old pictures! There are some good ones!!! Since today is Laura's birthday, I thought I would share some of her and of our college years!

Happy Birthday, Laura!

Laura is celebrating her birthday today!!! I would try to tell you how much I love her and what she means to me, but I really do not think I could write the words to do so! She is the sister I never had and my best friend! So Laura, cheers to you today! I hope your day is as wonderful as you are! I can't wait to see you!

28 Candles

Like I mentioned in the previous post, Flint celebrated his 28th birthday on Saturday! For some reason, Flint is not a huge fan of his birthday?!?! How can anyone not like a day that is about them?!?! SO, we do not have parties or do anything to draw special attention to him...which drives me nuts! I LOVE birthdays and making a big deal out of them! It is the one day of the year you can really feel special! I wanted to have "Flint's Day of Fun" and do special things all day for him. However, he had been out of town the two days prior to his birthday and with all the snow we had here in NWA, we were a little hesitant to make too many plans (in case flights got delayed or cancelled). So, we decided to go to the Razorback Basketball game and to just invite a few friends over for dinner. We had Flying Burrito cater the small gathering! It was a hit! And as always, the cake from Chuck's Cake Shoppe in Fayetteville was superb and it was fun to be with our friends. Flint got some fun gifts. He wanted two prints that we saw while we were in Lake Tahoe back in December. After several debates on where those could go in the house, I finally gave in and agreed to get them for him. I will post pictures when we get them. Here are a few pictures of Flint's (altered) day of fun! As you can see from the pictures, Katie really likes Paige and Paige is pretty fond of Katie, too! They were so cute! Randy and Krissy also came over. They have three of the cutest kids, too. I wish I would have gotten some pictures of them! Since I do not have any kids of my own to show off...I have to show off other people's kids!

Birthdays and Ball Games

Well, I know I am a little bit late on this. I still wanted to share. We celebrated three birthdays last week. My cousin, Rex, celebrated his 30th birthday on Wednesday. He and his wife, Haley, share their birthday... only Haley is one year younger! We went to Mad Pizza in Rogers to celebrate. It was a perfect place to have a party! There is a loft upstairs so all of the kiddos could run around and we (the adults) watched the Hogs BEAT Mississippi State in Basketball!

Then, February 2nd, Flint had a birthday! He hates his birthday. So I always try to do something a little special, but still not draw too much attention to the birthday boy! One thing he chose to do was to go watch the Razorbacks play the Florida Gators!!! The game was so much fun! We have not been to a basketball game in a few years and we even have season tickets! Pathetic, I know! But, Coach Pelphrey has really brought a new excitement to Razorback Basketball. SO, we took advantage of the opportunity! That evening we had a little get-together for Flint (It was NOT a birthday party it was a get-together!)

So, Sunday rolls around and we went to our friends' Max and Kelly's Super Bowl Party! We had a nice time. It made it that much more fun that the Giants won! Go Eli!

What a fun-filled week! Lots of exciting ball games were watched and some special birthdays were celebrated! I did not do a good job at taking pictures.
