This weekend @ COF we had a big Texan Tailgate. So many volunteers gave of their time, sleep, and resources to put on a huge celebration. They came out on Saturday afternoon and stayed ALL night cooking and getting ready to serve around 3,000 people on Sunday. Blake & I decided to hang out and get to know some of the people that we see around the church every weekend but had never had the privilege of getting to know on a personal level. We had a blast and ended up hanging out 'til 1:00am! Here are some of the pics I got of the preparation night...

Brooklynn LOVED riding the choo-choo train with us
She wanted to ride it again and again...
So she got to, because she is our little princess!!!
We are the Jackson's... Blake and Robin Jackson. We got married May 12th of 2007, so we have been married for four years now! YEA! We met in college at Houston Baptist University where we traveled together in a vocal group and discovered our common passion for music and people! We now have the joy of working together at Community of Faith, a church where we are in full-time ministry, leading worship, hanging out with students, and praising God for the opportunity He has blessed us with to serve together! We were pregnant last Spring and lost our first baby (whom we called Baby Bean). We now have our second bundle of joy that blessed us with his presence May 15, 2011. We named him Nash Whittan Jackson. He is amazing and we could not be more excited to be his parents. Our family is growing and we thank God every day for the amazing things He continues to give us!
