ok, somehow I managed to get a picture of Steve and Janis' grandbabies, but I can't get them to go down any further than this so...as random as it is...here they are!
Ashton, Evan and Alexis! SWEET BABIES!
Aunt Dorothy was married to my Daddy's oldest brother Harmel. Uncle Harmel passed away a few years ago. This is Aunt Dorothy and her children, Ernie, LaJuan and Steve. Steve is the pastor at Bethel. LaJuan lives in Lindale, Texas with her family and Ernie lives in Fayetteville, AR with his wife Mary.
This is my cousin Steve and his whole family! Janis is his wife and they have three sons, Wesley, Brad and Mikey! Wesley has two precious children and Brad is married to Terri and they have a son.This is my sweet cousin LaJuan with her children Katie and Will. Katie was quick to tell me that she is 27 and the "oldest" and Will is the "youngest"! I told her that I had not seen Will since he was a little fellow and she pointed out that he is all grown up now ...but he was still the youngest! :-) Katie had lots to tell me while we were eating our hot dogs and she kept me entertained!
This is Evan, he is Terri and Brad's baby boy. He couldn't keep still and was crawling everywhere or someone was holding him!Even Keith held Evan for a while. He looks good holding a baby don't ya think! LOL He was quick to tell me to "give him back!" But Evan didn't seem to mind who was holding him as long as he could see what was goin on!
He didn't even mind his birthday hat!
I think he likes to have his picture made and was posing and everything!
All along the walls of the family life center were saying and pictures and things pertaining to Aunt Dorothy's birthday. I thought this one fit her really well! It says Angels danced the day you were born. I have so many great memories of summers spent with her and Uncle Harmel in ElDorado and she used to teach me Sunday school and I learned a lot from her!
This was one of the pictures on the wall. My flash wouldn't take very good pics of the pics...but this one turned out pretty good! The one below...not so good! LOL
This is Aunt Barbara who was married to Daddy's brother Howard and Aunt Dorothy and Aunt "B"'s daughter Jana. Jana and I grew up together and she lives in Missouri now. I miss her so much and really enjoy getting to see her when I can. Keith and I went to Branson last year for our 20th Anniversary and we went up to see Jana and have supper with her and her children. I could have stayed there visiting with her forever! She has me talked into entering the 1/2 marathon in December for the St. Jude Marathon in Memphis. This past year she and I walked th 5 K. I am sure I will be walking more than running in the 1/2 marathon, but I think I will give it a shot with her!!! Love you Jana!
Several folks commented that they were glad that we left our vacation to come up for the party...well I wouldn't have missed Aunt Dorothy's 80th birthday party for anything in the world! I love you Aunt Dorothy!!!! I love the rest of you guys too....we really need to have more family get togethers like we used to!

This is Brandon and his date Ashley Martin arriving at Prom! It was trying to sprinkle a little so we took a couple of shots outside and then headed in to get some better pictures.
Aren't they just the cute couple!!! Brandon was none to excited about this tux, but once he got it on, I don't think he wanted to take it off....matter of fact, Charlene told me he slept in the vest and tie today...now I don't know if he was just that tired or just wanted to get his monies worth...he is a little like his Papaw! LOL
Miss Brittany Martin...I think she likes posing for the camera!!! She didn't mind all the pictures I was taking like the boys did! Thanks for being such a good sport Brittany! Luv ya!
This is Jeremy and his best bud Cory Thompson...since they are always together I had to have one of the two of them together! Cory and Jeremy clean up real nice too...most days when they are together they are in work clothes and covered in grease or something... good lookin guys!
Brandon and Brittany...the other one of Brandon's best buddies!!! She too is so very pretty and sweet! Again..another person that is top's in my book!!!
Here is another good picture of Brandon and his date Ashley.....who just so happens to be Brittany's sister. They made such a cute couple....this is just a bunch of good looking kids!!! (can you tell I am a little prejudice cause I am the mama!)
These next few pictures are some more couples: This is Zack Knight and Kelsey Lee
This cute little couple above is my darlin Lauryn Thomas and another boy that frequents my house Tyler Michaud!Lauryn and Brandon went to daycare together when they were little. Lauryn's mama Tanya is one of my dearest friends and Brandon and Lauryn couldn't go to prom without me getting at least one picture of them together....they grew up together!
This is Miss Raley Aycock and Mr. Nathon Harkins....Good friends and good kids!!!
Raley was actually at prom with her date Austin McCurry....aren't they a cute couple!!!
and........................last but certainly not least is Brandon with Nathon! I love me some Nathon Harkins...he is such a good kid and so much fun to be around. He and Brandon are good friends and I glad that they are!!! Nathon's mama and I have become good friends too...so this one is for you Danielle!!! Love ya girl! Here are our boys!
A great time was had by all the kids.....I think they have slept all day today though...thats what happens when you have so much fun that you stay up ALL NITE LONG! I am very thankful for all these kids and their relationships with my boys and our family!!! They are all good kids and it is an honor for me to know and love each and every one of them! I know I didn't get pictures of all of them...I left before them made it...including my nephew Zach and his pretty little girlfriend Kasey.....so, anyone that has picture of the kids I missed, please email them to me!!! I am gonna print them out and make a book for Brandon! firstname.lastname@example.org

They are both Senior's at Summerfield this year and Brandon is gonna be lost next year without them. I wanted to go ahead and introduce these crazy girls since Prom is this Friday night and they will be all dolled up and you won't get the full effect of who they are if I just wait and post those pics....so this will have to be a to be continued post....cause I will be at Prom lurking about with my camera Friday. They call Brandon "BranFlakes"....this will be a nickname he will carry with him the rest of his high school career and I am sure even after they are gone you will still be able to hear them at the baseball games rooting for ole' BranFlakes! We love you Brit and Ellery!
