Happy Birthday Kristi !!!

The ladies of Aledo had quite a surprise for Kristi tonight and WOW! did they make her feel special on her special night. I really don't know what to say about tonight other than it was unbelievable. Thank You for making my wife feel so special.

There were 100+ ladies on our front yard, with scarlet and black balloons (Texas Tech Colors), signs and banners, and gifts. They sang "Happy Birthday" to Kristi as she answered the door. She greeted the crowd, with tears rolling down her face, and I'm not sure she stopped crying completely the entire time that everyone was here.

I've never in my life seen such a supporting group of women. Kristi's best friends from Aledo were here, but also neighbors, ladies from school, church, baseball, and some ladies who had never met Kristi but wanted to show their support.

I want to thank all of you tonight for making Kristi's Birthday, one that she will cherish for as long as she lives.

I'm so sorry if we didn't get around to saying "hi" to everyone tonight. So please, if you were here, please post a short comment just letting us know that you were here...kindof an electronic registry. It all happened so fast, and we don't want to miss anyone.

Ladies, you are the foundation of Aledo. God Bless each one of you! God Bless Mary Poppins (aka Caren Jennings)
