The Family


Where better to introduce the family then in my happy place. We have been cleaning and arranging for two days. Finally done. Whew! In all that time however I have laughed a lot. Yes, definitely in my happy place, with the occasional breezes and storms spoken of earlier.

So ^^ there we have in the back (of course) L to R: Me, The Kidd and The King of the castle - the Hubs or the Husband depending on if he is in the dog house or not... usually not though.

In the Front L to R: GIJoe, Little Princess J, Maggie Pants, Shake and Bake, and the baby is Cheeks.

These really are my blessings.

The Hubs, really was my HS sweetie. He is my best friend and no matter what I do know I can count on him.

The Kidd is away at school, West Point, he is a Yuk this year. Two more years to go, then he will be an officer and will have a five year obligation to fulfill. His heart has been with the military since about 4 years old. We could not be prouder.

GIJoe, is the second oldest and still at home for a few years. Getting ready to take his drivers test. He spends a lot of time on a rifle range as he shoots .22 and air rifle. He's doing pretty good with that. As I've stated he has also started Civil Air Patrol.

Little Princess J, is really that, she is soft spoken, and girly girl all the way through. Although this Christmas The Kidd gave her a nerf sword and told her when to use it well. Immediately one of the older boys decided to pick at her and she almost started to complain then looked at the sword in her hand and went to town. THAT was funny. Good thing it was a nerf sword.

Maggie Pants, shoots as well. Same as her brothers before her, and she is starting to come right along with that too. She is a little more of a tomboy, but with two older brothers I don't blame her. She loves riding the ripstick, blades, bikes etc. She can hold her own when GIJoe goes a little too far with the picking on her.

Shake and Bake is our little ball of energy. Stubborn, and ornery, but he's got a heart of gold and I thing some of his temper comes in when he gets his feelings hurt. He's beginning to shoot, and thus far really likes it. It looks like he will stick with the sport as well.

Cheeks, well she got her name because when she started to crawl I told one of the kids "look, it doesn't matter if she's coming or going, all you see is cheeks. She's our chubby little baby girl (well she's almost 2 now so I guess not so much a baby anymore). She is a spit fire and cute as a button, AND funny as heck. She loves to dance, smile, and she has just enough of a mean streak so as not to get run over by the bigger kids.

And last but not least is Natasha the husky that we acquired when The Kidd called up one day saying "mommy, I love you" to which I answered "what do you want..." Yup the pup.
