    This weekend my family was all gathered at my

    Safe, Healthy and Happy

    When my daughter was born I knew that I wanted to do my best by her. My husband and I knew that it was important for one of us to be at home with her. It was decided that I would not go back to my teaching job but would instead stay home with her for as long as I could. To ensure...

    My sweet girl is 7 ..

    .she is the oldest of 4 ... I couldn't imagine having 3 little brothers (I had 1 and that was PLENTY). She is so sweet and tries so hard to be a good girl - she can be sassy at times (with 3 brothers it's hard to blame her) but she is awesome. She is SO confident, so strong, so...
