What does it mean to be a step-parent???

As far as hard jobs go, it's up there with police officer and crane operator. Stepmothers preside over a minefield of hidden hurts, half-concealed traditions and occasional tugs-of-war. Want the job?

It's been said that parenting is the toughest job in the world. Wrong. It's the second toughest: Stepparenting wins hands down. Right now, approximately half of all Americans live in a stepfamily, which means that every day, millions of women are subject to the job!

It has definately been a learning experience for me, but I pray everyday that I have a lasting impression on Trevor. May he take with him kindness and love!

Happy Halloween

This year we decided to celebrate Luke's 1st birthday and Halloween all together! It was so much fun! The Grandparents and cousins all showed up ready to trick or treat!
Grandpa Brad made a deal with Luke that since Luke couldn't eat any of the candy.... Grandpa got to keep everything they collected! It was a win win situation....
We had everything from Dora to a Giraffe... it was so cute!

Well this includes almost everyone! Uncle Scott aka Papa was taking the picture. We escaped the heat and made it inside to watch the "dog show". The kids loved it! Bryce spoiled the girls with popcorn and pop, and Anne and I took care of the little ones! I didn't really understand how much Lilly loved popcorn.... until I watched her chow down.

It's so amazing to me how much healing can take place within a 2 week time frame. The family vacation to Branson was 100% arranged by GOD! We were able to bring together our families and really spend good quality time together without any Drama! I know that from today on nothing will come between me and Anne, Nick or Jana.

3 Peas in A Pod

It makes me laugh just looking at this picture! The girls all started out in the same bed together...
and it quickly ended with Lilly in tears! It always seemed to be Clara's fault :)
