The Smith Family Story

Camille was one of the first people I met when I moved to Austin. She came to my team at work the month after I did, and we became fast, great, girlfriends. Wow, I can't believe that was over 9 years ago. We've remained wonderful friends, been through a lot together....even after she moved to Nashville, and then back to Texas to Dallas. When she called to tell me about Ben over 7 years ago, her words were something like "God's been good to me in the men department.". He continued to bless Camille, and Ben, with the birth of Claudia 6 months ago.

This was the first time that I'd met the little angel....and Mom did good - Claudia is a doll (or Dahl...that's her middle name). :) I spent a lovely girl's night in with Camille and Claudia on Friday night in White Bluff at Gran and Granpa's house. Ben came to join us on Saturday morning and I had a fantastic time watching them as a family. They are wonderful parents, and I'm thankful to call them friends.

I love your family, and your story. Hope you love it too!! :)
