Our Anniversary June 1, 2006
Our Wedding Anniversary February 28, 2008
My beautiful family of four. We have two S names born in two M months and two V names born in two J months, we also all have the number 5 in our birthday whether it be the month, day, or year. I thought this was so cool how this turned out for us and a little bit of fate for us. We had a rough beginning but we are doing great now. I love my family very much and work hard for them. I am a stay at home mommy but I also go to school for my accounting degree, I graduate in October of 2008. When I have my degree I had planned on going back to work, but now I am going to continue staying home with the kids until they start school and continue with my education. Shane has also started going to school for his criminal justice degree, which I am so proud of him for doing. He also got a big fat raise and promotion, now he is general manager of his own store. I am so proud of him, he has worked so hard and deserves this. They are moving our family to another city this September of 2008, I am so excited and can not wait for the big move although nervous about moving to a whole new city that I don't know. We are going to start looking for a house in the next month or two and hopefully will be closed and moving in by September 1st 2008. We are also thinking about having another baby, not anytime soon but when we get all moved and settled into our new home. I am so excited about trying and having another baby although nervous since I have to have another c-section. I am hoping by next year we will be having another little one join our family. Thanks for letting me share with all you wonderful ladies. Here are some pictures of my beautiful family.

About me: My name is Theresa. I met my DH (Dan) when I was a few weeks shy of turning 16, we met on Valentines Day 1995, we officially started dating March 16th. We had our first son Daniel March 27, 1997, I was 18 at the time of his birth, he attended my high school graduation. We were married September 15, 2000. Next came Colton on November 6, 2001, we had just moved to Colorado in March 2001 after living in Nebraska our whole life, it was a big change, but a good one! I knew all along that I wanted more children! Five years later Cody came along on June 15, 2007. I feel very blessed to have my three healthy boys! I am a Medical Assistant, I work part time two evenings a week and Sunday morning, I love being a SAHM also!! DH drives a propane truck for Amerigas, his hours are great and he is home every weekend, it's a good job, he actually has a degree in Human Services but was not able to find a job where we live that payed well enough to use his degree (kinda sucks after all the money we spent). Well I guess that's about it for now.
Here is a picture of us:

The beginning of us....
DH and I are transplants from our home state of Arkansas! Woo Pig Sooie! We met in college at the University of Arkansas in 1996. After he graduated, he got a job in Texas and I moved here to be closer to him.
Here's some early shots of us (so young looking, yikes!):
On New Year's Eve 2001, he asked me to marry him and we got married in June 2002.
A couple of wedding photos:
We both agreed...we were not ready for kids yet. In April 2005, we decided to take a leap and try for a baby. We got pregnant on our 2nd cycle, but it ended in a miscarriage at 5 weeks. We TTC for over a year after that, and got pregnant on Lucky Cycle #13! I was due June 1, 2007. We decided to wait until delivery day to see what our little one was!
Exactly 3 weeks before my due date, my water broke at 4 pm on a Friday afternoon...at work, no less! I drove myself to the hospital and my DH got there soon after. I had a relatively easy labor (BIG epidural fan here! ) and our surprise (in more ways than one) arrived.

Dean and I met in September 26, 1992 at our best friends wedding, he was the Best man and I was a Bridesmaid. We had our first date and from that moment on we knew we were the "one" for each other! We lived an hour and a half apart as DH was finishing his college degree. He is a teacher so he had to do a semester of student teaching before graduating in January. The teacher he was a student teacher for got ill and Dean filled in for him as a long term sub until the end of the year, and then was hired on full time. During this time we would visit each other on weekends and talk a lot on the phone (our phone bills were outrageous!). In February we decided that I would relocate and move in with him, he asked me to marry him in May, 8 months after we started dating. We got married on July 16, 1994.
In October of 1994 I found out I was pregnant, I was at work and not feeling well. My co-workers talked me into running to the pharmacy to buy a test. I went in the bathroom and took the test, I left it in the bathroom (I worked in retail so there were only 3 of us using the bathroom) and went back to work. Someone else went into the bathroom and told me I had better go look at the test... It was positive! I called my DH at work on his lunch break and told him we were pregnant. Looking back, I wish I had waited and told him in person but I was so excited!
Zachary Charles was born on July 21, 1995 after 29 hours of agonizing pain and no epidural or medication I failed to progress past 5cm so we did a c-section. Zach was born at 2:03am and weighed 7lbs 11oz he was very healthy and was a beautiful baby.
When Zach was about 1 we started TTC #2 as we wanted our kids 2 years apart. We had a very hard time TTC after tests the doctor told me that sometimes it is normal to have difficulties getting pregnant with your second baby. We took Clomid and on the 3rd round we got pregnant! This time I took a test at home, right after I POAS a friend stopped by to visit. We left the test on the kitchen counter and I went back 5 min. later to check it and it was a faint positive. I went to the doctors and they did a test that came out negative, I was bummed because at that point we had been trying for a year and a half. For some reason on my way home from the doctors I bought a box of 2 tests and took 1 first thing in the morning the next morning. It came out positive again. This time I called my doctor and they made me wait a week and then I went in for a blood test and I was in fact pregnant. I was due on December 23, 1998. We were told we could try a VBAC. At 37 weeks we found out the baby was breech so they did a version and successfully turned her. Courtney decided she didn't want to come near her due date, I was scheduled to be induced on January 5th. I went into labor on my own in the very early morning hours of January 5, 1999 After 16 hours I delivered Courtney Marie in a birthing tub, she weighed in at 8lbs 13oz.
In September of 2006 we went on our first vacation ever without our 2 kids. We went to Niagara Falls, and Toronto to see the Red Sox play the Blue Jays. We did a few wine tours. A month after we got home I was feeling run down all the time and my Breasts were killing me. I never even thought about pregnancy because we had a very hard time conceiving Courtney and my doctor had told me we would probably need fertility treatment to get pregnant again. I had Dean go to the drug store and get me a test as it had been a while since I had my period. I took the test fully expecting it to come back negative, and was shocked when it was positive! I hollered for Dean and we both just sat on our bed stunned! I didn't believe it, and went to the store and bought more tests... all 7 of them came back positive! After a few weeks we adjusted to expecting our little miracle. My pregnancy was hard on me in the last 2 months, but I kept active. For this delivery I had to have a c-section. On June 11, 2007 Brady Thomas was born weighing in at 8lbs 2oz. As much as he was our little surprise, we love him so much!
