The Clone

I was doing some spring cleaning this past weekend when I came upon some old pictures of my husband when he was a little boy. I haven't seen these pictures in a long time. Long before Dude #3 aka Camden came along. I knew Camden looked like his dad but these pictures comfirmed what we already knew.... Camden is his daddy's clone.

Here is a pictures of Camden on his 3rd birthday. I tried to find a pictures with the same expression and look as the pictures I found of Brian. This is as close as I could get.

Here is Brian around 3 yrs old.
And just to confirm it all... here is a picture
of me. As you can see, Camden looks nothing
like his mama.

My Dudes and Diva

This is Jeremy (Dude#1), He just graduated from High School as the Valedictorian of his class. He will be attending the University of Dallas in the fall where he will study math and theology.

This is Jade (Diva). She will be in the 8th grade. She will be in the Drill Team for the first time. And like most girls her age she's a bit on the boy crazy side. She took this self picture. Is that not the face of a Diva?

Then theres Corey (Dude#2). Corey will be in the 6th grade this year. He's excited to be playing football for the first time. He also enjoys baseball. He loves pretty much anything that has to do with outdoors.

Dude #3 is Camden.... He will start PreK this year. He hasn't started playing sports just yet. We decided to wait another year or 2. In the mean time he loves to play football and baseball in our back yard with his big bro Corey. Oh and if you can't tell by this picture, he the little ham of the family.

The Beginning

I've decided to start fresh with a new blog. I thought for a long time to come up with a name for my blog. I wanted something that sounded catchy. So I thought of "Operation Smith's" and even though our house could pass as World War III at times, Operation Smith just didn't have that special catch I wanted. Mama to 3 boys and a girl was too boring. Then that's when "Three Dudes and a Diva" came to mind. I also thought of "Three Dudes and a Drama Queen" but thought Diva fit her a little more these days. That would work if only on one else had use the URL yet. Lucky for me it was available. So there you have it.... The start of my family blog.

This is when it all started... Before the Dudes and Diva's came into the picture.

April 7th, 1990

Then a year later came Dude #1 aka Jeremy Taylor Born Apr.1, 1991. Miss Diva aka Jade McKenzie came along on Oct. 24, 1995. Then came Dude #2 aka Corey Blake on Dec 12, 1997. We were suppose to have been finished building our family after Dude #2 but God had other plans. Almost 7 yrs after Dude #2 was born, Dude #3 aka Camden Lane decided to make his appearance on Nov. 22, 2004. He officially completed our family.
