It's been a while, but here I am. We have had a lot going on lately but the most special and important of them all is the wedding of one of our children. Matthew (one of our 6 kiddos) is getting married this weekend, Sept. 29th, 2012. We are so excited. This will be the first wedding/marriage for any of our children. We will now carry the new titles of father-in-law and mother-in-law. Wow, I haven't thought of myself as a mother-in-law before. I have not had the typical 'mother-on-law' experience in my life. I have an awesome mother-in-law so I plan to break that typical mold also. I will be the most amazing mother-in-law to all of our children's future spouses. Allina just to experience it first. We are heading to North Carolina tomorrow to begin the wedding festivities. We cannot wait for their very special day. Welcome to our family Allina. We love you.
