The wonderful, yet often hairpulling life story of a stay-at-home mom of five cuties (Hailey, Shelby, Dylan, Ashley & Logan) and the journey through life raising our family with the best hubby around (love you, Kevin), and enjoying the blessings God provides to us daily while trying to keep it all in perspective when bumps in the road arise!

This is what we were doing 16 years ago....just waiting...
This is what we were doing on this day 16 years ago...looks pretty exciting, huh?! I don't remember the 16th of March at all. It was a blur of trying to get my induction to work. At one point I was in so much pain and I was only like 1cm (Pitocin stinks!)...they gave me an oral pain med that made me puke and go to sleep. When I woke up the pain was worse. What was I thinking trying to do things all natural (Thanks, Lamaze class!)...anyway...after that I gave in and had an epidural. Had I not, I know I would have had a c-section. I could not relax enough and was making no progress! Anyway...we were well supported by grandparents (who were trying to help us come up with baby names, from what I remember :))...and Pops came later and surprised us! If you look past the loooong labor and delivery, it was a very joyous occasion....as much as I am sad how fast 16 years have gone by, I would not want to go back and relive this day :) I am happy with the present time (though I miss that "baby" of mine!) :) Happy last day of being 15, Hays!
