This girl is amazing. I’ve known Ivy since she was a baby when I walked into the Mother’s Room at church with Baby Mattie and encountered Ivy and her mother Kristie, fast asleep in the comfy chair! Since that day, Kristie and I and our girls have remained friends and have created so many wonderful memories together. But you know what? Our future looks even better, because these girls have grown up (well, Ivy, anyway, she’s over 6 ft tall!) into amazing women and we are all friends as adults. She is graduating this month from high school and moving on to other things …. where she will excel at everything she puts her mind to because that’s just how she rolls! I am so grateful for her friendship with Mattie over the years and for being such an amazing, GOOD person. She has such a kind heart and a loving and fun personality. And she said she isn’t a model, but she rocked this photo shoot, wouldn’t you say?

Ky & Hannah, our son and daughter-in-law. I remember when they were first dating, they jokingly said their “couple name” was Kyannah. Would they, will they, name a little girl this name? I guess we won’t know for awhile, since they are having a boy, and his name is … Ryker.
