Announcing Ryan's Graduation!!

I am so proud to announce the graduation of my son Ryan.  It is scheduled for May 20th and it will be the greatest birthday present I could ever get.  I get to watch my son walk across the stage and receive the diploma that he has worked so hard for.  The first three pictures are the ones he chose to use for his announcements.  The invitations turned out to be a perfect fit for him.  Ryan with his guitar.  The last 3 pictures are of his class ring.  Also very fitting for him...rock n roll on one side and the rebel flag on the other.  Way to go Ryan!!  You continue to make your Mom and Dad so proud.    

BMS Weekend!!!

March brings NASCAR to East Tennessee and this year I brought my sister to the racetrack for her first time.  We had a blast!!!  She and I covered every square inch of Ford Fan Friday.  We played around in the campground, entered contests, watched practice & qualifying, and learned all about corn hole.  My little sis was amazed at how much fun the races can be.  On Saturday I took my guys & enjoyed it all over again.  I love Bristol Motor Speedway!

Our Baby Turns 18!!

Brian and I are as happy today as we were 18 years ago when our little bundle of joy came into this world.  It's so hard to believe our son is now an adult.  Ryan enjoyed a whole weekend of celebrations.  He bought a sweet Ford F150 with his money and is so happy he finally has his own ride.  On Saturday his Grandparents from WV came down and we all went out for dinner and came back to the house for cake and presents.  On Sunday we had a surprise birthday celebration for him after Sunday night church service.  The pastor brought Ryan to the front of the church and after some words of advice we all went downstairs & our whole church family came together to welcome Ryan into adulthood.  On Monday the actual day of his birth he enjoyed dinner out with his beautiful girlfriend.  It's so amazing what a difference a year can bring.  We are so proud of where Ryan has been, what he has come through, and the potential for where he is going in this life.  Happy 18th baby!
