Job Update - Good News !!

Family and Friends,

Here's a job update. This morning I received a call from my new Manager offering me the job as HR Manager in our Ft. Worth Call Center office. I was thrilled and accepted immediately. The job I am doing right now was moving to Atlanta so having the opportunity to work in the Ft. Worth office will be an exciting opportunity for me.

It will require me moving offices which will be like starting at a new Company b/c I've worked in the same office for 13 years. However, it's not any farther for me to drive to work so that's a good thing too. Just sad to leave some good friendships I have established in the office that I'm currently in. I certainly will miss the day-to-day interactions with all of these good people.

Anyway, thanks to all of you who have been praying about this for some time now. It's been a long wait but I'm thankful that God has blessed me in such a way. Thanks again and have a great weekend !!

God bless you all,

Family Baby Boy Names

Well, we are still trying to figure out our Baby Boy's name. Here are a few suggestions we thought we'd run across the blog crowd as we pay homage to some of Kendra's family names to go with McClure which is my late grandparent's last name (from my Mom's side):
  • Kendra's late grandfather's middle name: Oscar McClure Vaughn - hey, it will be fitting when he's 2 years old and refusing to eat. (aka Oscar the Grouch).
  • Kendra's dad's middle name is Don: Don McClure Vaughn - since the boy's Dad's name is Donny, let's just give up and call him "Jr."
  • Kendra's mother's maiden name: Hawkins McClure Vaughn - he would either go by "Hawk Vaughn" or using his initials (HMV) he could be nicknamed Humvee !!
  • Kendra's Mamaw's last name: Barnett McClure Vaughn - would there be any doubt that we'd call him Barney!! If he came out fat and purple, he'd be the most popular kid in the post-natal wing of the hospital!!

Any of these work? If you have thoughts, more suggestions or comments, please let us know!

p.s. Don't worry Brenda or Judy - we are just having a little fun trying to pick your grandson's name:)

God bless you all,
SJ (and some help from Kendra)
