Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Phillipians 4:8
I'm gonna go get my praise on y'all!
Jenna is signing our copy of Ana's Story and Jerry Ann Guidroz took this of us. Thank you!! We were at the lovely River Oaks Country Club in Houston.
This one cracks me up. MyRick said something funny to Jenna (I know. Shock right?) and she looked up at him. I of course was watching her sign our copy of Ana's Story and was all into the moment. Very cool time. The man that took our photo did not tell us when to look up or even say "ready?" Ugh. Did I say that I love this picture of MyRick? He's so funny and this is totally him.

There's nothing like B&W.
***Added to edit.
No sooner than I clicked the publish post button and MyRick and the girls walk in from visiting with my mother-in-law. "Hi babe. How you feelin'?" "Oh okay. I tried to call you. (in a pitiful tone of voice) I was gonna see if you'd get me a Frosty from Wendy's. My phone's not working though." "What?" "I'll go get you one." "No, I'll just go get it." "No. I'll go get you one. Do you really want one?" "Yes." "Okay. Chocolate or vanilla?" "Chocolate." Cough. Sniffle. Big, sad, blink, blink with my pitiful eyes. And a few glorious moments later I had my cold, smooth, delicious, creamy chocolate Frosty. I love that man o' mine.

Anxiously awaiting your 3 words... -Jamie
Oh! I almost forgot my three words that I describe my work with (well, top three):

"Hey, I've got an idea that'll be fun.." "NO MOM. WE"RE NOT TAKING PICTURES." (uuuuuuuh, that PKS (Photographer Kids Syndrone) grows worse with every passing day!) "No. I was going to see if y'all wanted to dress me up, fix my hair and take pictures of me?" And they ran straight to my closet for my wardrobe. Yep, they did all of my hair, wardrobe, told me what to do for my photo session, AND took the pictures! (each one got to shoot me in the outfit and hair-a-do they created) They had a ball! Okay, my 6 year old dressed me in the leopard outfit and my 9 year old dressed me in the cream jacket and teal skirt...and accessorized me with our cute devil dog -Bella. She only looks sweet and innocent. I'll post more about her and her sister later. But for now...here's the result of two very creative minds...
"Look over there Mom."
"Now look down."
"Now come over here and get on the fence."
"Like this?" "Yah, that's good."
"Oh sweet little devil dog Bella! We love you!"
And here's the most amazing stylists and photographers ever!

In the midst of my grief, two things happened yesterday that I believe to be gifts for me. My middle daughter got baptized in Jesus' name. And her Daddy was the one to baptize her. He was elated!!! She's been wanting to get baptized for a while now. She received the Holy Ghost in 2006. We wanted her to understand the purpose of being baptized so we thought it best for her to wait until now. So yesterday, her sins were washed away in the lovely name of Jesus. Sweet little girl.
And also my youngest daughter lost her second tooth. They had just gotten through swimming and she was biting on her towel and her tooth came out! She was so excited about it. So were we.
I wish mom could've been here. I don't know how to end this so I'll do it with some photos. Enjoy.
Waiting for her friend to get baptized. I love this photo.
Me and Dad.

She came around the corner wearing an extraordinary red suit with a ruffled white shirt of delicate detail. Her floral shoes were the perfect splash of color to her celebratory attire (besides the slick red satin purse and it's amazing red bow!) Our eyes met as she was on her way to greet the ministers and their wives in the green room. She flashes that smile of hers and begins to minister immediately with her ever so pleasant words and affections. She forgot all about what was going on, a huge celebration in honor of them, and took time to dote on a young woman, who along with countless others are in awe of her. And this is why she and her husband are successful in leadership...selflessness. His sentiments and actions were the same. I watched as he introduced people to one another-excitedly and upbeat. He made sure that everyone had been spoken to and made to feel at ease and appreciated. And they did. Rest assured, the desire in this couple's live's to serve and lead are seen and felt whole-heartedly. What cause to celebrate!
With that being said, the night was full of genuine doting and admiration of this rare, remarkable couple and their family. My most memorable quote of the evening though was this: "You could've had idiots!" -Rev. Nathan J. Hurst Yes, there was laughter, tears, and accounts of the impact that they've had on countless lives that they've had relationship with over the past 20 years. Certainly God has blessed the city and people of Pearland with a faithful, loving, Godly Pastor and wife.
The following photos express the details of this 20th Anniversary celebration in one way or another. You may laugh. You may cry. You may scratch your head. But one thing is for sure...you will have memories and relive the emotions of this night for years to come. Lord bless and keep you always.

Hear no evil. Speak no evil. See no evil.
