Happy Birthday Kevin!

I don't tell Kevin often enough how proud I am of him and what a great husband, dad, brother, uncle, and son he is. He is an incredible man of God, willing to learn from his mistakes and share his wisdom with others. We love you Kevin!

This is for you Grandma Alvey!

Welcome home Joshua Tucker!

On January 25, we brought home Joshua Tucker. Joshua was born on Friday, December 22, 2006 and weighed in at 5 lbs., and 15 oz. God has blessed us with a son! Wow. He is doing well; eating, sleeping and pooping. We have a long way to go on the road to adoption, but I believe God brought Joshua to us and so will take care of all of the details.

Here are some photos of our beautiful boy!

Yup, it's true

Okay, so we've decided to join the ever growing number of people who now post info on these things called 'blogs'. (binary logs for those of you who don't have the 411)

With so many of our family across the beautiful U.S. of A. it's difficult to keep up. At last count we have family in 8 states, not to mention those in other countries!

So, welcome to Alveyland! I can't guarantee to keep things current, but I'll sure try!
