I'm just going for it...

I have been considering this for awhile, but have never gotten up the nerve to actually sit down and write in a blog. When I was pregnant with our first child EVERYONE said that I needed to make sure I took the time to write about the experience, and then make sure I wrote about all of the "firsts" of the baby's life. Hmmm...I tried, but most are on stray pieces of paper in who knows how many piles somewhere. So, it's now about 4 1/2 years later and we have 2 children. I am determined to write here and share the joys of raising these two sweet "monkeys" as my Diddy lovingly refers to them. I must start somewhere, so here goes!

I am happily married to my high school sweetheart Geoff, and we have a preschooler and a toddler. They are two years two weeks apart. July is what I call the birthday season around here! Elizabeth is very inquisitive, loves art and animals and ALL the Disney Princesses. Cub (I'll save his nickname story for later) is what they call "all boy". He kinda thinks he IS Buzz Lightyear and can climb on anything and everything in the blink of an eye.

We live in the corner of a pasture on family land, across the field from my parents and up the road from my brother and his wife. My Aunt and her family live up the road a bit more... many call this "the compound", and it does fit. My Grandma lived in the house a field over from us, and that is where my Diddy and Aunts grew up. I am just glad to be around so many people I love. Geoff's family is here as well... just 5 minutes down the main road, so we are very blessed. I am sure if you continue to read this blog at all you will come to "know" many of these wonderful folks (not that I expect anyone to continue to read as I am sure it may be boring!?) and many more family and friends. Although I will not probably name all names and such... I don't want to upset anyone!

Okay, I'm done for now! Look at that ... I wrote my "first" post for this blog! Whew, that wasn't so bad... and I made a first of my own.

P.S. - Thanks Reynie for all the help getting started!
