Here's somemore photos of our old house, thanks to my friend, Zachary Anderson. I guess it will be up to the owner and the insurance company on whether it will be a total loss or not. I hope they can fix it. Please continue to pray for all who have been affected by this!

My heart is just broken. Thursday night our old hometown, Owensboro Kentucky, was hit by a tornado. It hit in our old neighborhood and damaged our house really bad. I am afraid that it will have to be torn down. I am so sad because my family and I loved this house. We have always been really attatched to the house and to Owensboro ever since we moved. We had so many wonderful memories there. I went to school there and countless friends came and stayed the night with me there. My two sisters met their husbands there and had their children there. It was just such a huge part of our lives. We even tried to get the house back after Daddy died but another man bought it and was in the process of restoring it to put a restaurant in it. I can't help by cry when I see the photos of our old house and think of how all of the residents of Owensboro were affected by this. It almost seems like it wasn't real looking at the photos and all the devistation. I am sure it is even more tragic in person. My best friend and her family who lives in Hartford was also affected by this. It just breaks my heart and I am so thankful that they are okay. I haven't heard from some of my friends there but I am praying for them. Please do the same.
Here are some photos of our old house before and after the tornado:

I am in the spotlight! I have been spotlighted on the SBCH Blog this week! Go here to see it!
Happy Birthday to my Gavin! Yesterday was Gavin's 2nd birthday. Wow, I can't believe how fast he has grown. It seems like only yesterday I was getting all packed and ready to go to the hospital to have him. He is so beautiful and learning so much. He is really starting to talk and say words and he has even said a couple of sentences. He is the most amazing little boy and I am so blessed to have him in my life.
Here are a few photos from his birthday party last Saturday:

I've been tagged by Pam!
Here are the rules!
1) You link to your 'tagger' & post the rules
2) Share 7 facts about yourself - random/weird
3)Tag 7 people & link to them
4) Leave comments on their blogs, so they know they've been tagged.
Okay, here we go!

1. When I was little, I used to dance in front of the mirror with a hairbrush and tell everyone I was a solid gold dancer.

2. I was so attached to my mom that she would have my sisters drop me off for kindergarten. They would fight over who would take me because I would hang on to them and cry and beg them not to leave me.

3. I have OCD when it comes to my house. I can not walk by something that is out of place without putting it back in it's place.

4. My first kiss was when I was 5 years old and it was by a boy named Kevin. We went to church together and we would hide behind the tombstones and kiss.

5. My first lead performance in the dance company I was in was to "Billy a dick" by Betty Grabel. If you have ever watched "Beaches", it is the song the movie opens up to. I was so excited!

6. When I was in Kindergarten, I had a friend named Jessica. We were going to get new shoes just alike. She had picked out a yellow pair of tennis shoes. I really didn't like them but we were going to be alike, so I begged my mom to buy them for me. I really wanted a white pair that had all different colored shoe strings in them. Well, the next day Jessica showed up with her new shoes, the white ones with the colored shoe strings. I was so mad but I learned a lesson that day, to never try to be like anyone else, but to be myself and buy what I like!:)

7. I love 80s band like Heart, Journey and Bryan Adams! I blame it on my sister Sherry! That's why I have a Bryan Adams video on my page. He was my first crush I ever had on someone famous!

Okay, I'm off to tag Nadine, Martina, Noella, Terrie, Vicky, Mara, and Nicole!
