Getting ready to take down the tree and coming across another ornament that is special. 1995 was quite a year. Started out with Lauren being born on Christy's birthday in February. That was a very exciting day except she was born a month early and had lung problems. Seeing her in the NICU made the occasion bittersweet. A few months later Chad graduated from Southlake Carroll High School then left for the Army in July. It was our first Christmas with both a grandson and a granddaughter. It was a year of highs and lows. Thankful Lauren grew to be a healthy baby and Chad finally returned home from the Army in 2001.
