This is the story of our crazy little family.We do not claim to have it all worked out perfectly. We do not claim to be experts. What we do know is that everyday is a new adventure. Everyday there will be some tears, some laughter, some anger, some misunderstandings, some joy, some sorrow and a whole lot of happiness and love! That is how we know we are doing some things right!

We are so lucky to have families like ours....
I just wanted to take a minute to thank our families. You hear of all of these people who are single parents or new parents who do not get any support from family members but for Dave and I it is totally different. Our families are there for everything and anything we ask of them. It was nerve-racking having to go back to work at Outback because I knew going into it I needed to work 25 hours to continue to give us medical insurance...but at the same time that meant I was going to have to be away from Sara for long periods of time. This was very depressing and stressful for me as a new mother but thankfully we have families who will watch Sara whenever we ask them to. I also have a wonderful sister who is there for both Dave and I all the time but also for Sara. Kelli helps us run errands, change and feed Sara, as well as anything else that we might need as long as it means she can see Sara and spend time with her. Sara also loves spending time with her grandparents and her Aunt Kelli. We are very lucky that Sara goes happily with whoever we bring her too. She very rarely cries while we are not with her and when she does...we like to think it is cause she finally realizes we are not there with her and she just misses us or wants us. So a huge thank you goes out to all of our family members for everything they do for us to make our lives a little less stressful and alittle bit easier with Sara. Sara truely enjoys her time with you all and we appreciate how great you all are with her. Thank you!!
