I'm thankful for...

10-12. My crazy family...if you knew my family, I wouldn't have to say anymore, but most of you don't. I have a his, hers, ours, and then another his kind of family. So #10 is my dad's kids. I have 3 brothers and one sister. One lives in Norwalk, another in Sandusky, one in Dayton and the other in Avon Lake. Unfortunately we don't see each other that much, but I am thankful that when we do, it's really nice spending time with them. I love hearing about their life especially the nieces and nephews. When my dad died, I thought for sure I would never see them, but we do and I'm very happy about that.

My #11 is my mom's kid, my brother. He lives in Plymouth. I haven't seen him in a long time. We've always had a good relationship when we do see each other though.

My #12 is my newest addition to my crazy family...Gary's kids. I now have 3 more brothers and a sister to add to my "collection" :) As I said before, Gary has been such a blessing to my family. His kids have really blessed us too. I've added nieces and nephews too, which is always fun. I love the colorful family I have. Wouldn't it be nuts to get a family portrait of all three families with Eric, me and the boys? I'm the only one that is connected to all of them.

Lori, I think we have a lot more in common than I ever realized :) A very eclectic loving family... it was hard to balance it all at first but now the more family, the better. Well most of the time :)
Love ya.
