I probably should have started with a few things about our household. Many of you will know this but some might not, so here goes.
It all started about 11 1/2 years a go. I met my loving~sometimes irritating (in a loving way) husband-to-be Paul. We met through our great friend Tim. We married on April 28, 2001. And here is where the journey begins.
We enjoyed a few years of childrenless freedom until January 31, 2004. That is when our girly-girl Kaitlyn Grace was born. Oh boy, I thought I was this great mom. I have this child who listens, is nice, does what she is told, no problems AT ALL! Then after a little while of trying, on September 29, 2006 our all-out boy Matthew was born. He had a few complications. He was born with a stridor (some sort of catch in his throat), a small heart murmur, and finally a club foot. The hear murmur and stridor fixed themselves, but the club foot was a long road. He is now a healthy, happy boyish boy. You can only tell the club foot if you look at it.
Now on to our newest member, Pixie. I am not sure what came over me in September, but I decided to get a puppy. Oh my, she is a Lab-Weimaraner mix. Needless to say that at 6 months old she is already 55 pounds. I fear that she is going to be a small horse! WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO?!?!?!? She is a lovable but clumsy creature so she actually is a great addition to the family.
In short, this is a quick glimpse into this Strouse House.
