Take a number please!

This past weekend, the Knight family celebrated! We had big things to celebrate! We helped Larry's dad celebrate his 80th birthday and on top of that, Larry's parents 60th anniversary is right around the corner, so we celebrated that too! We had one BIG party!!! We did lots of visiting, took lots of pictures and ate lots of good food! Not all the family was able to make it for the event, which bummed us all, but we had a great turnout! Thanks to everyone for making the trip to the big town of Hawley!

One thing that continues to amaze me is this little fact:
Darrell & Marie had 3 sons. Steve, Danny and Larry (he is my favorite)
Darrell & Marie had 8 grandchildren.
Darrell and Marie have 18 great-grandchildren! EIGHTEEN!!!! With two more on the way!!!
That will be twenty great-grands...and I don't think that is a final number! 
Check out this picture...we had them hold "their number" and even had Ashley and Chandra (our niece who is expecting in December) hold up their # too! 

We love you Darrell and Marie, aka Paw Paw and Maw Maw!
Thanks for all the sweet memories and for your unconditional love!


Summer happenings...

It's true...I am still alive! I have been a terrible blogger lately. Too much going on...won't try to explain but only share with you a few pictures from the fun things we have been able to fit in! Last week, Larry went to Trek with our Hillcrest Teenagers (love you babe and I am so proud of you for climbing yet another mountain!!! Yahoo!!). I went to Fort Worth to see my sweet friends, Pam and Gordon Trice and then on to Mansfield to spend the week with David and Ashley! Yahoo! Ashley and I had a list of things we wanted to do and though we didn't check off everything on the list...we did get a lot done! Here are some pictures of some of our projects!

This is just one peek at Emma's new room...more will follow once it is finished!

Ashley had a doctor's appointment while I was there, so I not only got to meet the doctor, check out the hospital where Miss Emma will be born BUT I also got to hear her precious little heartbeat!! I can hardly wait to meet this little doll. 

Then I returned to Abilene and got to walk with the little boys in the Hillcrest parade! I am so thankful to the ladies who organize this each year! It is such a fun treat for the little kids to get to be in their very own parade and let me tell you, our three grandson take it very seriously...you would think it was the Macy's parade! They love it!!! Here are our growing boys!! Owen, Clay and Will...thank you for making July 4th so much fun! You are the cutest firecrackers around!
