About Us

My photo
We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.

Shaun gives Ava "The Talk".

Shaun was a thumb sucker and needed braces, so in this video he tries to tell Ava, who has recently become a thumb sucker, that she'll have to quit this habit and do something else instead.  NO more thumb sucking!  Her response at the end shows that she's a lady who makes up her own mind... boy are we in for trouble.


  1. I can't watch the video (at work) but I was a pacifier baby and needed braces from the age of 8-13. I don't think it really matters. Kids get their bad teeth genetically - so our kids are DOOMED!!!

  2. She is sooo adorable!!! But just remember, once they start talking, you can't get them to stop EVER!!!! OMG - Payton's stories are getting even LONGER now and Phoebe's just a chatter box - ok, I might be a little responsible, but we'll keep that quiet :) Enjoy this while she's little!


Go ahead and say hello! I love comments!
