Please remember Amanda and Ryan Lee in your prayers as their son, Jack, went to heaven this morning around 7. Baby Jack has put up a valiant fight and we all know that he is with God now, but for those of us left-it's going to be hard! To the Lee and Fiveash families-you are in my thoughts and prayers! Love you all!!!

Well, it's finally over...the much anticipated 50th birthday bash! We celebrated on Saturday at Kenny's mom and dad's house with Jordan and our families. Karen, Ervin and Samantha came over and Toni and Abbe came down from Atlanta. Kerry was here and Jeff, Christal and Austin came out to help celebrate! Jordan and I have shared our birthdays for the last 10 years and I can't think of anyone better to share with. We had a "dual" cake this year that was very creative and very good! The gifts and card were enjoyable and most of mine were very 50ish! We had a good time and as soon as the party was over, the men took off for our house to our house to watch OU play football! Most of the ladies stayed at the Holton's and just enjoyed visiting. We missed everyone who couldn't come but truly appreciate all the "well-wishes"...you know I really need them now that I have joined that 50's club!!!
It's funny though because I really don't feel like I am 50. Maybe it is because I am still having to chase a 7 year old around-someone said maybe that is the advantage of having kids later-no time to get old! I must admit that I do have a few sore muscles and joints that ache , but that is not something that just hit me at 50! So I guess all I have to look forward to now is getting old enough to get that ever popular Sr. Citizens Discount!!!
I'll try to post pictures later!

Today is Jordan's 23 birthday! He came home last night and is planning on spending the week-end! It is always nice to have him home! It is hard to believe that he was 12 when Kenny and I got married. He lived with us until he went off to school so I feel like he is part mine, anyway! He has "fit" into the Walker family so well and all the cousins love him, too! I hope that he will be able to graduate from Faulkner in the next year and find a job that he will enjoy-maybe with today's ecomony, I need to just hope he finds a job-period!
He is a great young man and deserves much happiness in his life! I love you, Jordan!
