Family!

Today is our 29th Wedding Anniversary.  Tex and I met at Oklahoma Christian University in OKC in November 1985 and fell in love at first sight.  We were engaged after just one month and were married 9 months after we met, on July 25, 1986.  










Everyone told us we were too young to get married.  I was 19 and Tex was 21.  They told us that we had just met and to wait.  We were told a million different reasons why we shouldn’t get married. But you know what?  Every one of those people that told us not to get married are now divorced. 

And guess what!!!

Our family is growing this year!!  Amanda and James, our youngest daughter and her husband, are expecting their first child December 16th.  We are all so excited!!  She is 19 weeks along and is growing the cutest baby belly!

They officially decided on the name this week.  Our grandson will be Kegan Emit Harrison! 

Due to her teaching schedule and Christmas break, Amanda and her doctor have decided to induce her on December 17th if she hasn’t had the baby by then.  That will give her the most time home with Kegan.  Because of her horrible car wreck a few months ago, she doesn’t have as much leave from work as she had planned so she needs to maximize her leave with Christmas break. 

So, because she will more than likely be induced on Dec 17th, we have already bought our tickets home.  Tex will be able to go to OKC for a week and I will only be able to stay about a week longer due to the New Year and sky-high ticket prices. 

We are so looking forward to holding our second grandson in December.  Our first grandchild was a boy as well.  Megan and Aaron, our oldest daughter and her husband, had Caleb on July 10, 2014.  He just recently turned 1 year old.

Caleb is such a ham and has the absolute cutest smile with his scrunched up nose and dimples. 





We miss him so much.  He is just growing like a weed.  We are so thankful for technology!  We FaceTime with Caleb at least every other day, sometimes every day.  He loves to talk on the phone and put on a show. 



Megan and Aaron have their hands full with him.  He is just now beginning to assert himself and throw little temper tantrums.  It is so fun to watch Megan with him as he learns new things.  She gets so excited and sometimes baffled as to how to deal with such a strong willed child. 


It is really hard not being close to our kids and now grandkids.  That is one of the weird sides of RVing.  In some ways, RVing is great because you can go visit family whenever you want. But in other ways, it is hard because you are gone traveling all the time.  Our situation is a little different as Tex still works for 2 more years so we can’t just hit the road anytime we want.  Once he retires, we will be able to visit Caleb and Kegan much more often and be a bigger part of their lives.

To conclude our family, our 3 little fur babies went to the groomer today and had their Spa Day.




They look so beautiful when they are all pampered and have bows in their ears and on their collars.  The bows don’t stay in long so we have to get pictures very fast!

Well, next time I will try to get back to the RV upgrades that we have done.  I have quite a few more to show you.

Until next time!
