Happy Birthday JAYDEN!!!!!

Jayden, i can't believe you are "1" ALREADY!!!! How time really does fly! I remember like it was yesterday that your Mommy and Daddy took me to eat and told me that they were going to have a baby! Then i could hardly wait to find out if you were going to be a boy or a girl! We were so excited that you were going to be a boy and then it was the wait for you to make your grand entrance into this big world! I will never forget the time that i went to the Americana with your Mom and Dad, and you were still in your Mommies tummy, we sat in the floor of Barnes and Noble and laughed until we were crying!!! The first time we thought you were going to come we rushed down to see you....BUT.... you didn't want to be born we waited another week and you finally decided you wanted to get out of that little space and experience life! I am so glad that i was able to see you within minutes of your arrival! You were such a cute little guy and we got to spend some quality time that morning while your Momma got to rest!!! I miss and love you so much!! You better tell your Mommy to come see me, so i can squeeze you and hold you like i did that morning. Although, I'm not sure you will enjoy it now that you are growing up!!! Auntie MeeMee loves you very much!!!!

the picture on the top is of Jayden in his first outfit. of course his Auntie MeeMee had to make sure he looked all cute to meet the visitors coming to see him. As soon as i got it all on him, his doctor came in to check him out and took EVERYTHING off him!! LOL... Bre and I just laughed!

Our first picture together!!!

this was right after he was born!! awwww.. so adorable!!!

Merry Christmas!!!

at our apartment complex..there were cars parked in the middle of the driveways because there was so much snow they couldn't get to a parking space!!!

this was at my cousin Robbies house...

so pretty and clean

our walkway to our door...

our neighbors stairs... i thought it was a neat pic so i had to share it with everyone!!

we went to visit with Robbie and Amber and my Uncle Robert and Aunt Carlette last night and ended up staying the night with them because of the snow.. it really started coming down and they were closing the highways so we just decided to stay and not chance going out and getting stuck! I am SO glad that we didn't, on the way home we saw probably 200 cars on the side of the road..... We are loving living here and i am SO glad that we have a "white" Christmas!!! We miss and love all of you!!!! wish we could be there to celebrate the season!

Happy Birthday Breanna

Happy Birthday to my best friend!!! I am so sad that i am not with you to celebrate today! I miss you more than you will ever know, especially around times like today and the holidays!!! I hope that you have a good day today, even though you are not feeling well! i found this poem and thought it was a pretty good poem for us!


As we walk our path of life,

We meet people everyday.

Most are simply met by chance.

But, some are sent our way.
These become special friends

Whose bond we can't explain;

The ones who understand us

And share our joy and pain.

Their love contains no boundaries.

So, even we are apart.

Their presence enhances us

With a warmth felt in the heart.

This love becomes a passageway,

When even the miles disappear.

And so, these friends, God sends our way,

Remain forever near.

I love you so much, only you and i know the bond that we share, even when we are hundreds of miles away. We can read each others minds and finish each others sentences!!! I think we both need a good laugh too, like the old days driving to Lompoc to Grandpa and Grandma... is there a Vons anywhere???!!! LOLOLOLOL


i am not at my computer at home, so this was the only picture of us that i could find (i look like I'm on drugs or something)... lol... this was forever ago!!! Love ya lots!!!

Everything New

So much had been going on! Last month was crazy, i still can't believe that it went by sooo fast! Before we know it there will be snow on the ground and it will be Christmas!!! I actually am looking forward to a "White Christmas".... well i guess that is if i stay in Tulsa during Christmas!! lol... who knows, still looking for a 'cheap' flight, I'm beginning to think that there are no such things anymore!
Anyways, Grandpa and Grandma Helms along with Aunt Peggy came to Oklahoma to visit Aunt Carlette! While they were here we got to see them and have dinner at Aunt Carlette and Uncle Robert's! It was a ton of fun! It was the first time i had seen their land and it is sooo beautiful, above is a picture of her feeding the cows! They are really cute... can't wait to go back!

a few weeks ago we had a ladies retreat in Bartlesville for our church. Sis. Cathy Clark from California came and did a FANTASTIC job! She had broken her foot right before she came but she was a trooper! It was well worth going and i am so glad that i went, even though i spent WAY to much money in one weekend! Can't wait til next year!!!!

For my birthday a few of us went to Oklahoma City for the day. I have been craving BJ's and i found out they had one in OKC so that's where i wanted to go for my birthday! Even though it took like 2 hours in the restaurant it was well worth it! The food was awesome, but our waiter smelled like he hadn't showered in, ohhh about 5 YEARS!!!! he stunk SO bad... after we ate we went to the mall right next to it! It was kinda ghetto but it was a lot of fun just goofing off and being stupid!
so we saw these 'strollers' and couldn't pass up a photo opportunity!! they hurt really bad, and people were looking at us like we had fallen out of a tree, but it was fun!
here we are again, inside the mall right after our 'photo shoot' in New York and Co. they had an empty window so we decided to act like models.. it was fun, I think Lashel was getting a little embarrassed though!! hehe...
Here is Whit and I @ our CnC Fall Party! We had a bonfire and roasted hot dawgs over the fire! after we moved on the other side of the smoke it was painless! :) Natasha surprised me with a birthday cake since it was on the day of my birthday! We played hide-n-seek in the dark and then went in when it got cold and played pictionary! Our team won, thanks to my exquisite ability to draw!!!!! ahahahah good times!!!
I had to work on my birthday and the sweetest thing happened! My students surprised me with cake and presents and when i walked in the class they had a sign that said 'Happy Birthday, Sis. Gregg' and started singing to me! I almost started crying! needless to say we didn't get much done on Friday! We were all on a sugar high!!!

Howdy.... sorry its been so long since i have updated my blog. I have been super busy with work and church and outreach and choir and on and on and on... lol... its a great life though, i can't complain!!! Our College and Career group is headed for Dallas this weekend. We are going to Six Flags and to church at Bro. Steve Pixlers on Sunday morning and then shopping at the mall and a big outlet mall on the way home!!! I am really excited, its going to be a blast!!! I will definitely post some pictures from the trip when i get home!!! Here are a few pics from the past couple weeks...

My lil Man and Me @ Los Cabos for Labor Day

This is supposed to be a cool pic of downtown at night from the river, but it didn't really come out! We walked about 2 miles one night along the river with a big group of us and needless to say, i was not prepared to do that..i guess i need to keep a change of clothes and walking shoes in my car at all times!! it was so much fun though... making memories!!

Lashel and I @ The Brook, after prayer... it was so cold in there i was ready to order a blanket, but they weren't on the menu!!

Labor Day...

The 3 Amigos...Cheek, Gregg and Meyers...we Love these people...true friends are the best!!!
