This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 9 and 3 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

A Long-Overdue Reunion!

Before I get to the reunion, I wanted to show you the hat I custom made for a newborn's first photo shoot! Hopefully I'll be able to get some pics from it and see it in action.

On to the reunion...

Many moons ago, my parents attended a church called Walker Avenue Baptist church on the south side of OKC. After I was born, I basically grew up going to that church with the same group of people. This was a very small church--maybe 50 members every Sunday--that started my love of small churches.

When I was still pretty young my parents and brothers quit going, but I continued to go until the day the church closed in about 1997 and became a Mexican church. I have a lot of great memories there and I am happy to see that it is at least still in use, albeit a tad broken down.

The pastor that I grew up with there--Brother James--left in the mid 90's but I tracked him down in 2004 for our vow renewal ceremony. He and his wife are moving next week to Colorado so it was very nice to see them one last time! Several of my childhood friends were there, and now everyone is all grown up! We had a great time.

(Keep in mind the walls were white when I went there...)

^The nursery where I used to play

^The altar where I took my first communion

^The board where my dad ran the sound system

^The best pastor ever, Bro. James and his wife Barbara!

Tomorrow I was going to have a garage sale but I am just exhausted from everything I've been doing and my lack of sleep. So I'm postponing it until later on, and I am going to RELAX tomorrow. Of course, I'm sure I'll still do grocery shopping, crocheting, dishes....



  1. Great blog pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had such a wonderful day! The crocheted hat is adorable! You did good♥

  2. Mary Neal (in the red) is behind Bro. James and Don Everett is to the right of Barbara....
