Double the Fun

Late this afternoon my brother asked if I could keep my nephew tomorrow while my sister in law went shopping for her birthday. He has to work and the twins are going to daycare but Gradyn's a little too big to go. Of course I said yes and asked if Gradyn could just spend the night with us tonight. Greg brought Gradyn down and the twins were with him. We had fun giggling and taking pictures while Justin & Greg chatted. Macy was a little too busy for pictures but Madison was quite the poser tonight.

I asked them to put their arms around each other but Macy grabbed Madison's hand. Macy is sitting on the coffee table so she looks much taller.

Macy Savanna but we call her Macy Mae

Little Miss Madison Kayt otherwise known as Froney. We tend to give everyone a nickname in our family. Madison looks so much like my Mom.

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's, Grandpa's, and men who love kids like their own. I'm so lucky because I have such a wonderful Dad. He became a preacher when I was probably 5 or 6. I can't recall exactly. My parents were part of a gospel singing group and I'm not positive when he went from singer to preacher. We lived in Calico Rock, Arkansas when he became a pastor. His first church was in Violet Hill and then he became pastor of our hometown church. We've been many places around Arkansas since then and now we are in Texas. I am constantly touched and amazed by the comments I receive on my Facebook or Myspace from people in our past churches. There are so many who say how gentle and special my Dad is and how he touched their lives. I won't lie, it was a pretty rough road at times being a preacher's kid. Some people put us up against a higher standard, we often moved and left our home, friends, and family. Then sometimes the offering wasn't as much and we barely scraped by, but I'm so thankful for all the people I have known. I'm blessed to see what a difference God can make in lives. And, not many people can say that their Daddy walked them down the aisle, then stepped up on the platform and performed their marriage ceremony! I'm definitely a Daddy's girl and I think my Daddy is the most special guy on the planet.

Of course I'm in tears now. He always has a way to get straight to my heart! I love you Daddy!!
