    My Husband's Racing Days...

    Adam drove a race car on dirt tracks. We were always at the race track on a Saturday night. Once the kids were born, we even brought them with us. It was so much fun. In 2007, he stopped racing because it was just to hard to handle with our four children.

  • Our daughter, Isabelle, was born.

    Our daughter, Isabelle, was born.
    After finding out that I was pregnant with Isabelle, I put my school studies on hold, to concentrate on my family. It was one of the hardest things that I have ever had to do. It has made me a stronger person, and now she and my other three children are what drive me to push myself to finish college. Everything I do and sacrifice is for them, and I will not quit until I become a teacher!
  • Vero Beach

    My husband was working with a crew to clean up hurricane damage in Vero Beach, Florida. We went down there to stay with him, while evacuating our home, from hurricane Ivan.

    We found out we were going to have another baby, when my daughter, Isabelle, was only 5 months old. All through my pregnancy, I was told my baby was a girl. At 1:42 in the morning, HE was born! We didn't even have a name for him, until a few hours before we left the hospital. Needless to say, I had quite a bit of stuff to take back to the store, to swap for a different color! I wouldn't have had it any other way! He's the light of my life and still tells me daily how pretty I am!
