Our Family

Our Family

Welcome to my blog!

Every day is a new adventure, and though this blog won't capture it all at least you might get a glimpse of our crazy life...


A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for

Babies are a link between angels and man.

Children are a handful sometimes, A heartfull all the time.

Loving a baby is a circular business, a kind of feedback loop. The more you give the more you get and the more you get the more you feel like giving.
Penelope Leach

While we try to teach our children all about life, Our children teach us what life is all about.
Angela Schwindt

Boy, n.: a noise with dirt on it.
Not your average dictionary

Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.
John W. Whitehead

You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back.

I'm twenty what?

Yesterday was my birthday! For some reason age isn't really something that matters to me right now. I can't even remember my own. I went through the whole year thinking I was already 27, but apparently that's what I turned yesterday! On Monday Audrea brought over cupcakes and a card. It was so nice. Peyton was silly running up to me with her chocolate face yelling "Happy birthday!" and after audge and kinsley left she told me it was a great party :). On my actual birthday Derek surprised me by setting it up to where Audrea watched our kids while he took me to pick out a new phone. I broke down and decided to follow the crowds with an iPhone. It's actually pretty great. Afterwards he treated me to lunch and then we went to pick up the kids and were able to spend some time with Audge, Janeane, kinsley, and Lauren. It was a great day! :) I had a lot of fun!
