  2. Who is the young lady in the 13th photo in the navy top? I noticed her on the episode when they were riding in the train at the park and didn't recognize her as a member of the family. Just curious! Thanks!

  4. Gil is so sweet to Kelly Jo. I loved that he purchased her a new ring because he wants everyone to know she's taken! I didn't get to see it well so could you post a picture? Happy Birthday Kelly Jo!

  8. I don't understand this family's idea of fun or an appropriate 50th birthday party for someone. Everything they plan is so juvenile. A toy train ride? I know they mean well, but they're so limited in what they can do.

    1. Kelly jo loves train rides. It's her birthday, why not plan an activity she enjoys? They have done so much traveling and have seen a lot of the country. I don't see how they are limited?

  10. Just now finally got around to watching this recorded episode and just wanted to say how very sweet it was and how moved I was by it. I cried happy tears throughout, so touched by the precious, loving bond you all have and by how deeply cherished you are by your beautiful family. (As a side note, I have met you, Gil and Nathan briefly in Greenville, TX a few years ago. I am married to Michelle Boring's brother, Steve. We've also had the privilege of having Lawson visit in our home and play and sing a few songs for us one evening when he was in McKinney visiting Billy and Michelle.) I have four children whom I homeschooled for 23 years, and I have such admiration for the beauty and grace you have always displayed while raising 19! Happy belated Birthday, Kelly! And, may God bless you richly in every way. :)
