Today's Throwback Thursday is one of those memories that really tells a lot about my Dad and his fun loving personality. My Dad was known for being fairly ornery. When I was in high school, we
had sort of declared a battle of the sexes. There was a lot of vandalism tee peeing and car nonsense that went on. My Dad was working for a company
that would receive large machine part shipments, all packaged in
gigantic boxes filled with packing peanuts. After hearing about this
little war we having for weeks, Dad brought home 2 trash bags filled
with packing peanuts. We used these to fill the bed of a truck of one of
the "enemies". They were a mess! As soon as he pulled out of the parking lot, it looked like it was snowing out of the back of his truck! I think if you were to look closely around 42nd and
Peniel, you will probably still find packing peanuts! Thankful that my Dad was involved enough to help us pull off some pretty fun pranks!
Stephen and I were married in December of 2004. We met through a very persistent friend who insisted that if we met, we would get married. Sure enough, he was right and 7 months later we said I do! In the years since, we have suffered great loss but are learning daily to rely on God and each other, knowing that we can rise to use tragedy for good! We welcomed Olive Kay into the world in August of 2009 and our lives haven't been the same since! She is a firecracker and makes every day worth waking up for! On her 3rd birthday, we found out we were going to be blessed with another little one. Nora Kate joined our family in April of 2013 and has brought even more joy into our lives! We can't wait for the adventures we will have with the two of them.
