SWEET 17!

How sweet it is to be 17!
Its true - Amber and Ashley are 1 more year closer to being able to vote and buy cigarettes.


Ashley Nicole

Your picture is in the dictionary under "sweetheart". Your loving, giving, heart is so apparent in all you do. Your sensitive and creative. I'm so blessed to have a daughter who cares more about others then herself. It's been so great watching you be involved in the leadership ministries at church! I love you so much and pray that you protect that open heart of yours, but not so much that you don't let other's see how beautiful you are :}



Amber Noel

Your picture is under "dictator" just kidding. You are so strong and independent that sometimes it scares me (probably because I see so much of me in you). You want so much to grow up and take on so much responsibility - but remember the words of our favorite Trace Adkins song "Your gonna miss this". Take your time and enjoy every stage that your in - your right where God wants you! I love you and am so thankful for a fun & wonderful daughter like you!!!


Happy 17th TWINkies!

Happy Birthday again girls. I can't believe they are 17. I remember waiting out in the hall of the hospital with about 20 other friends and family. I am so proud of you both. You are both so loving and giving of yourselves. You are godly examples for others. You have been through alot and your lifes have changed so much but you never complain and almost always have a smile on your face. Don't ever stop giving me your big hugs and I love you where ever we are. We love you so much and look forward to what God has planned for you. Love Grandma

Cath: Do you want the big white bow too? I think that would be a great church outfit for you.

Happy Birthday, Twinkies! You know you've arrived when you can drive your own car and smoke your own cigarettes at the same time.
Kidding!
