Joining the Party-Ultimate Blog Party 2010


I'm so excited to join in the fun of the 2010 Ultimate Blog Party, hosted by 5 Minutes For Mom. A friend of mine suggested that I join in, so here I am. As always, late to the party!

I'm Stefanie, a just-turned-30-year-old, stay at home mom of two wonderful kids.

My husband, Grant, and I will celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary this year!

Dylan is 5 and Alexandria (Lexie) is 3. They are the loves of my life!

Dylan is in Pre-K and will be attending Kindergarten in the fall. He loves Star Wars, Indiana Jones, frogs, and T-Ball. He is the sweetest, most loving, most compassionate little boy. He was my little blessing, born a month early, and completely healthy!

Lexie is my sassy little spitfire. She is smart as a whip, full of attitude, talks non-stop, and has a great sense of humor. She is a fashion diva and is all girl. She loves reading, animals, and dressing up.

We live in Western Pennsylvania with our kids, a Great Dane, a chihuahua, 2 cats, a fish, and 2 hermit crabs. We also own a horse, who lives at a boarding stable. I got him when I was 12, and spent years riding, training, and showing. My daughter now enjoys riding Cherokee..in a tutu!

I am the youngest of 8 kids, and have 17 nieces and nephews and 1 great niece. Life in a family this big is busy, fun, chaotic, and dramatic. I can honestly say that there is never a dull moment!

My passions are photography, reading, running, blogging, and shopping. I love musical theater (I used to act and sing in my pre-child life), riding my horse, hanging out with my family and friends, crossword puzzles, and singing. Above all, I love being a mom. I honestly feel like I was meant to do this!

My blog is all about the daily adventures of my crazy, busy, loving family!

Welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by to meet my family and I!
