I am Thankful for "We" - Our Family of 9
|Our Wedding Shower|
I met my sweetheart on a blind date.
His Aunt and my mom tried to set us up off and on for a couple of years.
I just was not interested in blind dates.... Until I talked to him on the phone.
He was adorable.
|Our first Baby|
We hit the ground running and we were 3.
Our first baby came just a week after our first wedding anniversary.
Life Came at us fast.
We spent our newly wed days as young parents.
We grew together as our numbers grew.
|Our Second Baby|
Our first son came as quickly as our daughter did.
|Our second daughter made three children!|
Our second daughter came and now we were 5.
We had become a busy family of 5 in 3 years 4 months and 2 days.
We know the Lord has a different plan for each family.
And this was his plan for ours.
|And then two years later we were blessed again with another baby daughter.|
|My husband's parents with our 4|
We were up to our waists in little people.
Our children were happy and busy and so were we.
For us, the definition of we was not a group of 2. It was 6!
|And then our second son came.|
We was now defined as 7.
Our oldest son had a brother, tipping the scales his and Dad's way a bit.
|My Parents and our 5.|
On this day, we visited my Dad where he worked.
And then, Heaven sent us our 3rd son... All 3 fighting pounds of him born at 29 weeks.
We were now 8!
At this point our family was balanced.
3 boys and 3 girls a Mom and Dad.
Until the tie breaker...
My Family minus my brother his wife and his daughter.
We welcomed our 4th son, the tie breaker.
All 8 pounds 5 ounces of him.
"We" had become 9 in just
14 years and a half years.
We are so thankful for this journey.
It has not been a fashionable one and at times we are misunderstood.
But, we are so thankful for our 7 children.
We are thankful for "We."
