It’s been a long time coming.ย  Something like 3 years, I suppose.ย  All I’ve heard about– is this day!

This cute kid…takes her appearance seriously.

Sometimes, things don’t go as planned. (Boo, retainer that didn’t fit!)

But that’s ok because LOOK HOW PRETTY your teeth turn out…when you stick with your orthodontist and follow the rules.

After enduring molds for NEW new retainers….We celebrate with a little BLING and some Steak-N-Shake!

I’m so proud of your beautiful new smile, Gates. You’ve been a devoted patient and a serious diva all at the same time. I know how hard it is to wait for something so special. The way you look today shows all the sacrifice was worth it! Congratulations, girl!


A special THANK YOU to the greatest Orthodontist and Staff, Dr. John Hiester at American Family Orthodontics in Seymour, IN. We’ve been hanging out there regularly for the last eight years or so. Because of your special talent we have 3 beautiful smiles to look at everyday. Gavin, Ally & Gates enjoyed being your patients….even when it hurt! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Man I’d Marry Again

Friday, August 26th, 2011

When you’re young and in love….it’s not very likely that you put much thought into “the far off” future with that person. I know, I didn’t sit around dreaming of teaching my kids big deal stuff or mortgages and jobs. I was way too busy daydreaming of what my house might look like and if my husband would always think I was the hottest thing since cassette tapes in cars. Yea, I was very mature and balanced.

So, to you young unmarried folks…I have some advice for ya.

When choosing a (forever) spouse….

It’s very important that he have tons of patience.

Because he will need it. Often.

Especially if he has beautiful daughters…that act much like their mom.

But drive like…..who knows who. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Because only he has the patience to teach your baby parallel parking.

As I watched out my window, the man I picked for me. I saw the man God picked for my kids (and me). The one who worked hard all day and hadn’t eaten. The one who probably hadn’t stopped thinking or doing all day. I saw the one I’d marry all over again.

I LOVE YOU, HONEY! You really are the best! XOXO
