Kelsey Layne

So I have this cousin....her name is Kelsey. She's one of those folks that are totally and completely unique. Nobody else could possibly be anything like Kelsey. She dances to the beat of her own drummer. Her birth, in my book, was a pretty big deal seeing as though she didn't come alone. That's right, she is a fraternal twin. Twelve years ago our family grew by four feet when Tyler Lee and Kelsey Layne came into the world. They were born on the twelfth of August, on the twelfth anniversary of the day their parents met, their combined weight was twelve pounds and now they are twelve years old. :D

Some things worth saying about Kelsey.....
1.) She's always been extremely flexible and athletic...unlike her older cousin :P

2.) Some of the faces she makes.....I could have never imagined even in my wildest dreams....they are purty crazy from time to time ;D

3.) And yet...She's gorgeous!! Soooo....would anybody like to tell me what happened to MY BABY KELSEY!?!?! She has been replaced with this amazingly beautiful preteen...SCARY!!!!
Seriously...her eyes!!!!

This is her twin brother Tyler that is growing up just as fast...sadness!!

These kids have never seemed like my cousins....We could've sworn that we were brother and sisters. ;) Even though they have always lived in a far away land called Austin, Texas and we only see each other about 4 times a year... :(

It was nice to see them for Thanksgiving. :) And we shall meet again at Christmas! :D

Wonderful Friends....God is Good and I am Thankful!! :D

For Thanksgiving weekend I thought I would post some pictures of something I am DAILY thankful for....GODLY FRIENDS!!!! Friends are not just for laughing, smiling, and goofing off with...although they are great for that too ;D...they really are essential for encouraging, building up, and comforting you! These friends have helped me in so many ways....they continue to help me in so many ways. And all the glory for these wondrous friends go to my Great God who is gracious enough to give his children good gifts. :) <3

Happy Thanksgiving-weekend everybody!

I and My Horse are One

Sadly I don't have a horse but a dear friend of mine, Susanna, does. And I just felt like writing this for her and her beautiful horse Jeb. :)

I and My Horse are One

When a radiant pasture fills my eyes
With wildflowers and grasses tall
Beneath the vibrant Texas sky
I feel an urge, a pleading call

An urge to ride through fields so lush
Behind me a hear a familiar sound
I feel the slightest, loving push
I smile as I turn around

There stands my friend, loyal and true
He wants me to ride too of course
Anytime I want, he wants to go too
My beautiful darling horse

I feel at home the minute I mount him
And stroke his red-brown neck
I can’t imagine being without him
As I give his sides a gentle kick

At once, we’re off; my heart is filled
With exhilaration, excitement, glee
He runs so fast it scarce seems real
It’s like we’re flying – swift and free

When we’re together, we’re connected
It’s as if I’m running too
By each other’s spirit we’re infected
In golden fields ‘neath skies of blue

I’m uplifted, cheered, and free of care
Feeling his energy through the reins
The wind rushing through my hair
Is blowing through his mane

Our love is deep, our friendship sweet
As we ride through the glow of the sun
Together, at once, our hearts feel complete
I and my horse are one

Precious Noelle Kristen

God is so amazing how He works in peoples' lives....I have happily known David and Bethany since pre-engagement, to their engagement, from early marriage to pregnancy and now their nine months of waiting has come to fruition with a beautiful baby girl....Noelle Kristen. Now, I'm one of those people that think pretty much every baby is gorgeous because it's overwhelming to see the splendor of God's creation in such a little being....but seriously Noelle is BEAUTIFUL!!!! She's just the right size and she's the sweetest shade of pink. :)

Her tickle-me-pink little hat :)

My mother with the little beauty <3

I am a sucker when it comes to baby hands!!! 
Hers are lovely btw...she may be a piano player just like her Mommy :)

Noelle with her Daddy's hand :)

She's already got some great faces :D

Susanna holding her :)

Now it's Savannah's turn :)

And Mrs. Moore's :)

The midwife, Mrs. Martha Deming, who is absolutely darling!!! She came to give them "going home" instructions and she really is the sweetest thing...well...besides Noelle that is! ;D

David is just a wee bit proud of her...He said at one point, "Okay Allix, that's enough pictures....well, maybe not. Just keep taking them...and send me EVERYONE even the bad ones!" ;D

The happy little family that just grew by two feet :D

Bethany is an AWESOME mom already!! Seriously...the midwife said she did amazing during labor....Two thumbs way up Bethany!! :D

 I pray that God will bless her life and that the whole nine yards of raising her will be nothing short of a wonderful adventure. :D Love you guys! ♥
