My First Blog Post

Well, I finally started my own blog. I love reading blogs and have always wanted to start my own blog but I was nervous. After talking to many of my family and friends they convinced me that it was not hard to get started. They were right it was actually pretty easy. I am still learning and I'm sure I will get better as time time goes on but at least I'm started. The main reason I wanted to start a blog was to start documenting all the precious moments in my family's life. I have never really kept a journal and I use to scrapbook a little but now that I have 4 kids I don't have time for that anymore. So hopefully starting this blog will be easier for me to keep a document about my life. So, for my first post I decided to tell a little about my family and what we are all up to right now. So here it goes.

The Love Birds

Andy and I have been married for almost 14 years. WOW, I can't believe it has been that long. We have 4 amazing kids. Haylee, Megan, Abby and Ethan. Andy works for Skywest Airlines as a aircraft mechanic. He LOVES his job. He has worked for Skywest for 6 years now. I am so glad he enjoys his profession. I work part time as a RN for IHC. I work for the float pool department as a Maternity Nurse. I have worked for them about 3 1/2 years. I also love my job. It is very flexible and allows for me to work around Andy's work schedule so my kids always have 1 parent home with them.


Haylee is the oldest. She is almost 12 years old and is in the 6th grade. She started learning to play the violin this year and is doing really well. She loves to be around her friends, listen to music, play her Nintendo DS and help her mom out in the kitchen. She has started to babysit this year and does a great job. She loves to babysit her younger siblings while Andy and I go on a date. she is a great help especially with her younger brother Ethan.


Megan is the second oldest. She is 9 years old and in the 4th grade. She loves to dance, listen to her MP3 player, play her Nintendo DS, swim and play with her friends. Some of her favorite things are horses, Twighlight movies and Chinese food. She started piano lessons this year and loves it.


Abby is the 3rd girl. She is 6 years old and in kindergarten this year. She is taking ballet and loves to dance. She loves horses, swimming, playing with her leapster, riding her bike and playing with her big sisters. Her favorite color is blue. She has such a bubbly personality and is always smiling.


Ethan is 2 years old and the youngest. He is the only boy and is spoiled by his 3 older sisters. He loves to run, jump, play outside, and wrestle with Dad. Some of his favorite things are trains, airplanes, trucks, and books. He keeps us very busy but we love having him in our family.
