I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 14 nieces and nephews (R Russell Patrick II joined us 10/13/13). 5 great-nephews & 6 great-nieces (Brooklyn Grace joined us 10/2/13). 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 12 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.
This is especially important when taking pictures of kids and grandkids! You may have heard about this but here's a great news story that explains it all. Apparently hackers can get into your phone and find out where the pictures were taken. Specifically! Where in their bedroom or their school or their favorite place to hang out! As the mother in the story says, "it's horrifying!" But you can fix it! Turn off the GPS setting on pictures you plan to post on social media. See how by watching the video.
