Welcome To My Blog!
It's a Blog Party and I'm so excited to be having some company this week. You see--this is a spankin' new blog and I haven't had too much company yet! I will do my best to entertain you while you are here. I haven't written many posts yet but I have posted a few pictures you might like to see! So--just to give you a glimpse of my family and me, I give you this-- an 'appetizer' , if you will! 4 INTERESTING THINGS ABOUT MY FAMILY ( I picked 4 because who wants to be here all day trying to think of something...)
- I Love Coke--OK, so that's not interesting and I don't know how secret--but I refuse to go a single day without it. I can't--I need it--it needs me--an addiction maybe! I will go to any length to get it...
- My hubby is a pilot and we have lived in a lot of different places--including the coldest place in the US (this is my opinion)--North Dakota. I still have a hard time believing anyone enjoys that kind of brutal weather! We have also lived in Washington state--which I would gladly go back to--in spite of my southern roots. We have also spent some time in Oklahoma, Texas, and California! My hubby, being the actual military member, has been all over the world--places like Spain, Italy, England, Germany, Japan, Turkey, Saudi (of course), and many, many others! Am I jealous of all his travels? A RESOUNDING 'YES'! Do I think he owes me a few trips? ANOTHER RESOUNDING 'YES'
- We have experienced the still birth of a daughter and 14 months later, the birth of twins. The birth and subsequent death of our daughter ( which was completely unexpected) was excruciatingly painful. The birth of our twins was exhilarating and restorative. Only God can do something so big and so wonderful that you feel 'healed' from your pain in an instant! We love Jesus around here--and unashamedly so--if you need a friend or a comforter--He will stick closer to you than a brother!
- Ok- I can't leave out that we are a home-schooling family. We have been for 10 years. I have loved every minute of it until this year when I felt like it was time for a change. Our kids are enrolled in a private Christian school for next year and they are very excited! I have a 9th grader and two 4th graders.
God bless you all and enjoy the PAR-TAY! I hope to get around to visiting you all this week! It's going to be fun. Head over to 5 Minutes For Mom to find all the participants and the PRIZES!
