   My Personal Testimony by Karl Owen

 I am Barbara's husband & co-owner of Barbara's Cake & Cookie Boutique. I am a Texas A&M graduate (Class of 80). More importantly, I am born again & I  re- dedicated my life to The Lord Jesus in August, 1983, at my grandparent's house in Maine.

    Give God Glory for that & no one or nothing else!

 Gingerbread Houses in Competition 

 In Gingerbread Competitions we won 2nd place (silver) & (3) 3rd places (bronze).  We also had a gingerbread house (not pictured) on a TV commercial with Ronald McDonald Charities & Southwest Airlines...it aired from California to New York during the holiday season! The children were standing around the house & decorating it with tons of frosting & candy! They "LOVED" it!  Praise God!
