ok Tracy

ok Tracy I'm doing this just for you because you know I have all this FREE time...where does my time go? maybe if I learn to say "no" I will have some FREE time...

just last week (September 10th) I celebrated my 14th wedding anniversary...that was a shocker to ALOT of people, we were told by everyone that we wouldn't last a year...pretty neat how we met, my friend Trica's boyfriend Windle went off to Marine Corps bootcamp and met this fellow Marine Jerry and Windle knew that we had to meet; we wrote letters back and forth for about 2 months then finally met on April 16, 1994 and it was love at frist sight...after a year and a half of Jerry being in California and Japan we got married, we may have spent a month together from first time meeting to marriage (September 10, 1994)...I guess I can see their concerns...I was a Marine wife, that is a very hard job and I have the upmost respect for all Military wives...THANK YOU ALL for the sacrifices that you and your families make...

on my 25th birthday I got the wonderful news that I was going to have a baby, wonderful news but oh so scary when you are 8 hours from home luckily my baby was due a month and a half before Jerry gets out of the Marines or I would have really gone daughter has always been very stubborn, 2 weeks after her due date I was induced...December 6, 1996, welcome Chelsey Logan

January 7, 1997 we moved back to Byron...home at last!

Chelsey was going to be an only child until I had my eyes opened at the funeral of one of my favorites Daddy is one of 9 so that's a huge family and one of his sisters who I always thought the world of died of cancer on December 8, 1998...she was the perfect woman, wonderful wife & mother of 5...after seeing her children and how much they supported each other through her illness and death I knew Chelsey had to have someone who she could always count on...April 10, 1998 I found out I was pregnant with baby #2

baby #2 being stubborn like her big sister was also late, I was scheduled to be induced on December 10, 1999 but the day before the 1 year anniversary of Aunt Dot's death, December 7, 1999 Jenna Nicole decided she was ready to make her enterance...also the day after her big sister's 3rd birthday

that's enough for now...more of my life later
