Ivan Nathan - My other half. I'd say "better half," but let's not get carried away here, ha! Ivan and I started hanging out the summer of 2004 and soon after, started dating in September of that year. Things moved pretty quickly and we had our first child, Hunter, in March of 2006. Two weeks after Hunter was born, we decided to get hitched - at the Apple Shed - a roadside fruit stand. Romantic, huh? He's a good ol' country boy who loves being outdoors - hunting, fishing, golfing, grilling, pretty much anything outside and he's all in! I couldn't be more opposite when it comes to that - the only thing I enjoy outside is being at the beach! We balance each other out though and could never see ourselves with anyone else.
Pardon the language here, but this quote is us completely.
These kids? They're MY WORLD...
We're a pretty crazy family, but we have fun! :)
Hunter Nathan 3.25.06 - My first born. My sensitive soul. He is the sweetest little boy I've ever met. He really has such a kind soul, that I wish I could be more like him. So sweet, so innocent, so forgiving. He always sees the best in any situation. He loves rock music and KISS is his favorite band. He is obsessed with Minecraft, Legos, Star Wars, and the Avengers. He wrestles and plays football.
Marissa Dawn 7.25.07 - My mini-me. My free spirit. She loves rockin' big sunglasses and flip-flops and throwin' up peace signs. :) She is me up and down, especially my attitude. I can already tell that we're going to go through hell with her growing up, just like my mom and I did, because we are TOO much alike. lol. She loves any and all music, her tablet, Snapchat, Pinterest, and any other popular fads. She LOVES Monster High. She does ballet and cheerleads.
Aleah Hope 1.12.10 - The wild child. The baby. My sweet little Aleah! :) She's definitely wilder than the others ever were... she doesn't listen and she's spoiled rotten, but that's mostly my doing. She's the BABY! And the LAST baby! (I got my tubes tied after having her.) She's so petite... from her height to her facial features, she's just tiny and adorable! :) Her nickname is "Itty Bitty" lol :) She loves LaLaLoopsy, My Little Pony, Sofia the First, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and Doc McStuffins. She does ballet and is the cutest tiny dancer I've ever seen!
