26 Years Ago Today

Today's baby pictures aren't the ones everyone has been asking for lately, but you'll have to indulge me a little bit. June 23, 1983 saw me going from young woman and young wife to young mom (and that's why I'm a young grandmom, but that's another story!). No Steve did not "rob the cradle", I think I was just pretty determined to do things ahead of schedule. After moving to Houston and adjusting to new job (Steve at Exxon), new school (me at U of H), new church, new apartment, and new friends, we found out we were in for an even bigger surprise: new baby!

Kyle, you got parents who had no idea what they were doing but you have always been a good sport. You have blessed us with your sweet smiles, mischievous antics, accomplishments, and most of all, your heart for the Lord.

For those of you reading who don't know him that well, he graduated from our homeschool, then Hardin Simmons University with a 4.0, and is now serving the Lord full time on staff with Kaleo Church here in Houston as their Community Life Director. He married the lovely Jaimee 3 years ago and they are expecting baby Jack in October.

Happy Birthday Kyle!

the last picture is puzzling....is that a baptism the guy is in the water for??? And why is the child NOT in the water? Otherwise why is that man in the water with a button up shirt on???? Anyway, Happy birthday to Kyle...yes, I was a young mom as well.

Happy Birthday to Kyle....it's just not fair how quickly our babies become grown-ups. In our minds, they are always our babies.

LOL...The man in the water is Larry Smith, our pastor when we attended Bear Creek Community. Kyle is on the side of the pool giving his testimony. Then he got in the water!

Kyle's "young grandparents" (lol) are very proud of him and his young family. The selection of pictures are perfect. Happy Birthday to Kyle,

Love, Mawmaw and Pawpaw

Love all the photos! I still can't get your blog to load in my Google Reader, but at least I find out when you've got posts so I can go read them!
