On the road

We are on the road visiting family between Houston and Memphis. Our first stop was Decatur to visit Josh's parents and family. Then, we drove on to Abilene where Josh preached at Highland and we were blessed to see many old friends while we were there. Next, we drove on to Palo Duro Canyon near Amarillo, TX. We loved it! I think Truitt is going to be a GREAT camper. I'll try to provide pictures soon. We are now in Lubbock, TX visiting my parents and enjoy west Texas. Whew! what a trip!


May 10th was Truitt's birthday party and the next day was mother's day/our 6 yr anniversary. Needless to say, in the midst of party and packing we didn't get to celebrate. So, last night we left Truitt with Memaw and Papa and just played. We played Putt-putt and I beat him by one stroke and then he INSISTED that we play another game so that he could restore is pride. Ski-ball was the choice and AGAIN I beat him. Not by a little, but a lot! The score was 25,000 to 1200! Victory, sweet victory! Then we were off to a famous steak place called Cagle's steak house and I ate the best steak I've eaten in a LONG time. I don't know what they do to it, but it was great. We stayed in the exact same room we did on our wedding night and slept-in this morning to my hearts delight! Josh Ross, you are a great husband and I'm so thankful that I married a romantic like you. Thank you for loving me. Happy late anniversary.

My mother

Karen Rogers is classy, real and fabulous! She loves the Lord and has spent plenty of hours loving me and my two older brothers. She is a kindergarten teacher, bible class teacher, wife, friend, mentor, etc. She conquers many tasks every week, with a smile. She is truly remarkable. I love her and thank her today for all the late nights staying up to talk after dates, cheering for me at all my sporting events, loads of laundry, dishes, nursing me back to health, spankings, and spirtitual conversations. I love you mom. I'd pick you a million times over!

My father did the sweetest thing. At the link below you'll find an article in the Lubbock Avalanche Journal about my mother. My father was allowed to share with this reporter what my mother means to him and what he loves the most about her. Mom, enjoy your article.

Mom, as the bible says, a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Enjoy the praise from the "city gates" today. I love you. - Kayci

Happy Birthday Truitt

A year ago today

Birthday pancakes!

Over the past week he took three little steps toward grammy. We wanted to catch him on tape doing it again, but of course he wouldn't. He'll be walking soon.

Today is Truitt's birthday!! We are so thankful he's our son and the Lord blessed us with his life. Thanks to all that have already called and wished him a happy birthday. Enjoy the pictures and have a great Cinco de Mayo! Love, Kayci
