My family

I have not made a post in quite awhile. So I just thought I would post my six month late anniversary and early Christmas updated family photo. We had waited a couple of years thinking that we would have another addition to the family. does not always go as planned, so let me enjoy what appears to be a fine looking family for a least the photo shoot.
Life has been turbulent the last mood has been very attitude adjustment was definitely in order. besides personal trials, my sweet son has opened our eyes (especially mine) to a life of realizing teens (even good ones) can be defiant and not always make the best of decisions. i am learning to do two things....fight what you absolutely can't give up and compromise on the rest. thank goodness i have spoke with some other moms and have come to see that this is also the age. none the less...i love nate with all my heart. the joy he brings to me can not really be put into words.
As Christmas is fast approaching, I wish everyone joy in the season and calmness in their hearts. I look forward to blogging about the wadkins Christmas and reading about all of my friends.


  1. Kelly, that is a beautiful family picture. ♥
    Let's just seatbelt ourselves in for the teenage ride, shall we? I know that we can make it!
    Sorry that you have had a hard time recently- I think that you are absolutely right: fight for the things that you can't give up on and compromise on the rest. (or at least some of the rest... I am a control-freak ☺)

  2. What a cute picture of all of you. I definitely don't look forward to the teenage years (especially with my girls). We will survive! Our parents did! Love ya!
