The Village

Randy and I are truly blessed.  There are four people in our lives who we appreciate beyond words.  Not only are these four people the best examples we have for our marriage but they have also become an even bigger blessing to us since our children have come along.
It is amazing to know that if I ever need help with anything someone is only just a phone call away.  Randy and I's parents have been there for us even more since we have had the children.  When Randy was traveling  his parents had me over for dinner at least once while he would be away as would my parents and when I worked nights for a few short months our parents would go above and beyond the call of duty and keep the children overnight while he was away so I could work.
They take the children when they are sick, or  have special days set aside for them to come over and make crafts or bake cookies. They are our babysitters for date nights!  My mom even has a date at least once a month with A to go and get her toes painted.
The old adage it takes a village to raise a child is right.  We are espeically grateful for our village.  We could not do it without you!
