Here we are...

I hear this is the new hip thing to do...have your own blogspot. I can't believe how many of my friends are on here and never told me about it. Hmm, maybe I'll have to rethink who my real friends are :) I'm wondering how I'll have time to keep up with this and still handle all the other daily stuff you have to take care of as a wife, mother, friend, etc. Life is hectic. We keep thinking someday it should get easier but it just keeps getting busier.
So a little about us. Randy is from AZ up north in a little town called Cottonwood (it's near Sedona). I am from MO in a tiny town called Horine which we hated so much so we really claimed Pevely. I know, it's not much better. I love small towns though. Everyone knows everyone. We met while I was going to college in Kirksville, MO. Randy was on his mission and actually served in our area. I didn't meet him until he only had a couple weeks left...good thing. He went home to his girlfriend who had waited for him for two years and I figured I'd never hear anything else from him. However, here we are almost 9 years and 4 kids later so obviously I did hear from him.
We have 4 kids...Jacob (almost 8), Garrett (6), Caleb (4), and Brianna (almost 3). They give us SO much happiness in our lives but at the same time make us want to pull our hair out. I still don't understand how they can be so sweet and good one minute and so stinkin' rotten the next. Whoever wrote Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde must have had children as their inspiration.
Alright, that's all I have for now. I guess I'll have to find some pictures to post or something. I'll get this whole thing figured out sooner or later.
