TommyWe are thrilled, anxious, nervous, and very very nauseous. As of today we are team gender surprise. This is very out of character for me and it’s driving Rob crazy. Just trying to focus on a healthy baby first and foremost. Prayers are welcome and much appreciated…especially during the months of July – September.  I apologize in advance for the beached whale at your local pool.


Back in January (sorry for the late post) we certainly had a BIG reason to celebrate.  My dear grandmother has been blessed with 90 amazing years of life.  She is truly a warrior.  It was a milestone in our family to have everyone in San Antonio down to some of the great grandchildren to celebrate our precious Grandma.  Christin and Grandma_WM

My aunt Janice was kind enough to prepare the following stats to give us a little background on our “little” family tree.  We begin with Grandma’s six children and their six spouses.

There are 17 grandchildren (12 pictured below), 14 of whom are married with a total of 19 children (great grandchildren).

Everyone came together all because two people fell in love. Our beloved Grandma has instilled so much in each and every one of us; but of all life’s lessons, love and understanding have been the greatest gifts of all.  As my aunt Janice said, “We all may not have acted like it at one time or another, but through these core beliefs we have all made it in life.  This is a true testament to you Grandma.”
