I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 13 nieces and nephews (it's about to be 14 because yet another one is due in October!). 5 great-nephews & 5 great-nieces (which is about to be 11 because, yes, there a baby girl due in October "Brooklyn Grace"). And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Not well at ALL! Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 10 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens, Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.
Thank you so much for your submissions! They were all so wonderful and really helped us decide what we liked and didn't like when trying to figure out names for the kittens.
I love that she's holding on to daddy's foot! She's obviously named after Wicket Wystri Warrick, the most famous of the Ewoks who helped with the Battle of Endor in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
And this is WILLOW
She's named after the character in the movie of the same name, starring Warwick Davis, Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, and others. My husband has always loved that movie since he was little and it was a way of kind of getting a Harry Potter reference in there since Warwick Davis starred in all 8 Harry Potter movies. Plus it ties in to Wicket, because guess who also played an Ewok in the Star Wars movies? Yup! Warwick Davis.
Are we geeks? Yeah. And do we love the 80s? Obviously. LOL
