Last night was one of the sweetest moments I have witnessed between Julia and Tanner. It was getting late and they were both SO tired. Tanner insisted on having some juice before bed, so he got a little juice bottle out of the fridge. He was trying to pull the plastic cap off and the juice ended up spilling all over the floor. I mean ALL over the floor. I still don't know how he managed to get the juice to fly that far, but he did. The juice also sprayed the refrigerator which is home to all of Julia's artwork. One of her pictures got annihilated. Tanner immediately began crying and said "Mom, I had an accident!" He was so worried he was going to get in trouble! His tears and sincere face just melted my heart. I told him it was okay and I began to wipe up the juice. Then he spotted Julia's picture. He gasped and looked at her as if she was going to be really upset. He was still crying. In the sweetest most tender voice and with tears streaming down his face he said "Oh Julia! I am so very sorry!!" He was devastated that he had ruined her picture. Julia walked over to him and gave him a hug and said "it's okay Tanner, it will dry". They just stood there and hugged each other. I know I'm a pregnant sap right now, but it was hard to hold back my own tears. It's moments like these that make up for all the naughty ones.
We have been married for 10 years, are the parents of 4 beautiful children and one precious angel. They keep us on our toes, but we love it! They are so much fun...every day is a new adventure. Ron also has an older son Matt who we love so much! I couldn't ask for a better step-son.
Matt is such a good big brother and such a great young man. He's always so polite and is always willing to help around the house or with the kids. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body!
The princess of the group. 8 going on 18. She is so sassy, but is so much fun. Always the center of attention and such a wonderful helper!
What a little ham. He is so hilarious and has quite the little personality. He is always making us laugh.
Our free spirit. She is so bizarre yet loveable. She is truly in her own little world and it's very entertaining to watch. Love this girl....she is so hilarious.
Our sweet miracle baby. What a rough year we've had with her, but through the grace of God and amazing doctors she is with us. She's the perfect finale to our family. :)
