Tell us about your favorite family story.
My husband and I grew up in the same small town but he was almost 6 years older then me, so we never went to school together. We crossed paths while I was in nursing school. We were inseparable from the start. Within 5 months we were married.
People thought we were crazy but when you know, you know. We bought a home, brought our first daughter into the world and I finished nursing school in the first year together. We are now happily married 8 years with 3 beautiful daughters. Life has a funny way of working out. We are abundantly blessed.

We have 3 girls. Ages 7, 4, and 1. Our 7 year old tends to be a diva lol. She got "grounded" from her IPad one evening. And this is how the story goes..
Our middle child walks into the living room with her shoes on and bookbag on her back. She asked me to put her jacket on because it was cold outside. Keep in mind it's late at night. I asked her where she was going and she said "I'm leaving this house". I asked where she was going and why. To which she responded "I don't know but I'm going with sissy".
I walked into my oldest daughters room where she was packing all the essential stuff in her bookbag. You know, all of her LOL dolls. I looked in our middle child's bag to see what she had packed. She had bags of chips, pop tarts, and juice boxes. 😂 they didn't know where they were going but one packed toys and the other packed some pretty good snacks.
All over an IPad getting taken away. My husband and I laughed until we cried. We talked them into staying 😉 gave them a bedtime snack and all was well in the world.
