We've been tagged!

OK, folks, here goes-7 random facts about our family. I always laugh heartily over other people's little answers, so I'll try to make this one interesting as well.

Alrighty-

1. We're very last minute/spontaneous. An event can be planned a year in advance, and we still save all the goodie for the last month. (or week, or day.) But, somehow, the Lord helps us to get everything done before hand. (We secretly enjoy all the frenzy and hoopla at the last minute, though-it gives one great excitment!)

2. When anything happens, we fix it or celebrate it with lots of food, and are tickled pink when you eat it, and enjoy it. It is one of the highest forms of a compliment to us. (Never refuse ice cream, especially, LOL. ;) 3. Three of our children married into one family, and then both family's widowed grandparents married as well-that makes my brother-in-law my first cousin, my brother's wife my sister's brother's sister, my brother's wife's grandmother my grandfather's wife, my sister-in-laws father my mother's brother, and then it's all wrapped up by my sister being my first cousin. :) Try to wrap your mind around that, LOL!! 4. We had our so-many great grandfather come over on the Mayflower-his name was Richard Warren, and he signed the Mayflower compact in 1620. Our little Paul Warren is named for him.5. In the 25 years of our family history, we've had 3 broken bones amongst 12 kiddos. Praise God for only 3!! (Well, major bones, that is. A few toe's have been smashed, but there's nothing a little popsickle stick splint and masking tape can't fix on that scale. :)

6. When ever our precious extended family gets together, along with singing, laughing, eating and prayers, there's always a bag or two of delicious "Greenburg" i.e., passed on clothes for us all to dig through-we have so much fun!! We love freebies.

7. Our so-many great grandfather was John Wright Houston, (nephew to Sam Houston) and we have his very own spectacles that have been passed down, in a little case. Our John Wright is his namesake.

Ok, now I'm supposed to tag 7 others-


The Del's over here

Aubry's Spot

And the Bessinger family!!

P.S. I'll have to show y'all a picture of John Wright's reading glasses-they're so cool! I can't find 'em right this minute, but as soon as I do, I'll post a pic. of them. Family treasures are such neat things...
