Garon Chillin in the Pool

So, Garon has no clue this is here yet...I am waiting to see just how long it takes for him to realize I have updated (again)...



Sorry it has taken so long to get some pictures up. We have been a little crazy and I wasn't exactly the most computer literate but I have conquered and here you go...

These are our latest family pictures and had a fun time taking them. Hope you have enjoyed

Time Has Passed us by...

Well, I have done it again. I have let the moments of time pass me by just as sand through the finger tips.

We have been going non-stop pretty much the entire month of July but I have been loving life. I went to Houston and saw my cousin Monica and her new little bundle of joy and had a wonderful time with the Hindmarsh family. I miss being so close to them but we are finally starting to slowly adjust to it. Two weeks after that visit Garon and I both made a visit down to SE Texas (Lumberton, Beaumont, and Groves) for the wedding of his brother T.J. We really miss the people but realized that we don't exactly miss the weather.

Meanwhile, two weeks ago, my cousin Corrie and her family came in for a visit for you sister (my cousins)'s wedding which happened today, August 1, 2009. It has been a crazy but fun-filled couple of weeks. We weren't exactly use to having eight people in our house all the time but now that we are approaching the go home time we are wondering what we will do once everybody is gone.

The past few weeks Garon and I both have had some eye-opening moments and I am so grateful when they come along. We have learned much about our families, each other, and most of all ourselves. There is nothing like taking a moment and stepping back to take a glance of the big picture. What I mean is when things get crazy and chaotic we tend to forget about the "end goal" and have a hard time seeing past the fog in front of us. We have so much to be grateful for and I cannot even begin to put it in words (mainly because I know I will leave a bunch of stuff out and that just wouldn't be good).

We are anxiously awaiting the quick approach of school which starts ummmmm...THIS MONTH...Garon will go back full time and continue working part-time and I will continue working - ANYTHING TO GET HIM THROUGH SCHOOL!! :) Love you Babe! We have recently started tossing the idea around of me going to school but are just trying to figure out how to make it work. I know that is what I NEED to do and it is something that I WANT to do. I do realize or hope to realize that I wouldn't finish school here in Arkansas but I so okay with that. Somehow the mention of going back somewhere in TX after his graduation keeps coming up but I keep reminding him that since we have met we have said we would like to live somewhere where they have four different seasons, a place where it is hot in the summer and cold in the winter. I guess only time can tell where we will go. Now, if Garon does go for his Masters which I believe he wants to do that would in about a year and a half put us in TX for that degree but who knows from there. But, all of this is a LONG WAYS DOWN THE ROAD...

Now that I have taken a step into the future lets come back to reality, we are here in AR, going to school, working and trying to pay the bills. Which means, we are NORMAL young married people who have an amazing road of love, laughter, joy, and friendship ahead of us. Life is Great!

I love you Garon and am so happy that I will be able to grow old and gray with you (try to keep out the gray part though)!!

Side Note: I tried to upload some pictures but after over an hour of waiting I gave up. Garon has got to clean out the computer or the uploader thing-a-ma-jig isn't working day I will get some put up.
