Today is a very important day for Texas. On this day in 1836, March 2, Texas declared it's Independence from Mexico and became an Independent Nation.
So Happy Birthday to Texas and to all of us who love her. We are Americans first but the struggle to become Texas came at a heavy cost and we will never forget all those who fought to make her free.
Happy Birthday Texas

While the fight at the Alamo was being waged from February 23, 1836 until the Alamo fell on March 6, 1836, our leaders were drafting The Declaration of Independence.

Had it not been for those that gave their lives to give Texans the time to rally, we would would never have become THE REPUBLIC OF TEXAS. While they fought, General Sam Houston was gathering up an army to defend Texas. On April 21, 1836 General Santa Anna & his troops were defeated at the Battle of San Jacinta on April 21, 1836

We are proud to be AMERICANS AND TEXANS!!

So once more Happy Birthday Texas!!

From the Mommy, a born and breed Texan

And love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all from Mona

Hehe, you asked if Snowy and I are still in love?
You mean Crystal, right?
She doesn't pay attention to me anymore, she doesn't call me "my man", now she calls me Mr. Mango.
She dumps me, Mona!
Don't worry, I'll get over it!
