Welcome to "RazorbackslivinginTexas"! This is a new thing for me, I have not been a blogger, I even resisted being on Facebook. However, I think that other people's blogs are fun to read, so I decided to start one for our family.

After growing up and living in Arkansas for 32 years, we left our families and friends for a new adventure in the great state of Texas. That was almost 6 years ago, it doesn't seem that long. We came here as 2, but finally became 3, Praise God! We still consider ourselves as "Hogs", and I do not think we will ever become Longhorns or Aggies. (sorry guys) We live a quiet life, boring really, yet we like it that way! Most of our daily activity involves work and dealing with a very stubborn 3 year old, who is truly a blessing from God.

Ed "Shark" works as the Director of a Boys and Girls Club in a nearby small town. This organization has been a part of his life for over 30 years. He loves his job, and cannot imagine doing anything else. He guides and mentors several young people everyday, mostly from poor and broken homes.

Holly works as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner at a large local pediatric clinic. This is what I was put on earth to do. Going to work everyday is a priviledge that I never take for granted. I know that I am blessed to have awesome partners that appreciate my work.

Avery is the only "native" of the family, she was born after our move. She is a stubborn, loving, dramatic little girly-girl who loves Princesses, Tinkerbell and Dora. She also has red hair, where that came from is such a mystery! However, she hates to have this red hair done, and refuses bows. She attends Stepping Stone School everyday. Her teacher says that she is "my extra pair of eyes and ears", which really means that she is a bit of a tattle-tale. She is a loving child that is the joy of our lives.


  1. Welcome to blogging, Holly! I started mine exactly a year ago and never thought I'd make more than a couple of posts. It's been so nice to have documentation of my girls' lives (I REFUSE to scrapbook and I rarely have photos developed). I look forward to reading about your Texan lives. Keep it up! Christie

  2. Welcome to the blog world! It really is a good way to journal what is going on in your life. I like going back and seeing what we were doing a year ago. It is really awesome for your family to keep up with you through pictures and friends who are out of town. Hope you like it and keep it up!
