"Our Family"

Once upon a time our family only had 6 people in it.  When I married Tony, he had Alesha, 16 years of age, Chris, 14 years of age and I had Bryan, 8 years of age and Jordan, 5 years of age.  As you can see below, we were all very young and had lots of hair.

Through the years we've seen a lot of changes and our family has grown a great deal in numbers.  God has been so faithful to our family and His mercies and blessings are new every morning.  Great is His faithfulness!!!  We now have 7 grandchildren and #8 is on the way in March. 

It has been 3 years since we've had a family photograph made.  We have gained 3 new family members since our last photo.  I decided the night of the wedding rehearsal, that it would be a great time to capture a picture of all of us together.  Rhyanne Ketron graciously agreed to come out and take our pictures.  It was one of the craziest nights on the square of Bentonville.  It was our First Friday on the Square with toy vendors.  Luckily we had a church family, Erin Freeze & family, stroll by while we were taking pictures and I asked them to be a distraction so at least everyone would be looking toward the camera.  It takes a lot to get all adults and kids looking in the same direction.  I am very pleased with our pictures and so thankful for the time we had to share together.

The excited soon to be married couple!!!

We've been so blessed through out the years.  Each one of our kids have married amazing Christian spouses and we couldn't have asked for a more precious gift for all 4 of our children. How great is our God!!!!!!
Ephesians 3:20-21 "Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen."

"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."
