me and my crew

Hi there!  My name is Anna, and I am a wife, mommy, and teacher.  I currently teach 6th grade math at a local middle school here in Georgia.  Its exhausting and often thankless, but I truly love my job!  I am an avid reader, blogger, Facebook-er and Twi-hard (or Twerd, as I call myself).  TEAM EDWARD!  Zumba is my favorite form of exercise.  I still have a secret love for NKOTB, stemming from my junior high days.  Shhhh...don't tell!

The hubs is totally awesome.  His name is Chris and we have been married since June 22, 2002.  We met in 1999 while studying for the ministry at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  We've been together a long time, and its been interesting to say the least!  When we married, Chris was a youth pastor.  He later became a pastor, but now he is a full-time, stay-at-home daddy to our kiddos.  If we've learned anything, its that life can be a roller coaster, but its great to have your best friend beside you.  Chris loves all things ESPN.  He is a die-hard Alabama fan (ROLL TIDE!) but also cheers for the Minnesota Vikings and New York Yankees.  He's the love of my life and my very best friend.

This is my little Motormouth!  Andrew made me a mommy on February 24, 2006.  We tried a long time to conceive him and endured a miscarriage before him and one after him.  He is such a blessing.  His smile lights up the room and I cannot imagine my life without him (nor do I ever want to even TRY).  He amazes me every day with his near-photographic memory and video game skills.  Andrew loves Star Wars more than Bella loves Edward.  He is a tenderhearted, sensitive soul who is not ashamed (yet) to cuddle, hug and kiss his mommy in public.  His laugh is contagious and his smile brightens my day.  He will talk your ear off about Star Wars, Iron Man, and/or Halo, but he sure is fun to listen to!  Love my boy.

Finally, this is Cupcake. Hannah entered the world on June 28, 2008.  This girl has shown us we are not as strong as we think.  Hannah is adventurous, brilliant, resourceful and determined.  Her personality is intense, to say the least.  When she is happy, the whole world can't help but be happy with her.  When she is unhappy, you'd better believe the whole world knows it.  I have no idea where she got that from...(snort!)  Hannah is currently obsessed with Dora and Disney Princesses (her favorite princess changes daily).  Nothing stops her from going after what she wants.  I can't wait to see how this character trait plays out in her life as she grows.  I love her more than I can say.  She's my little diva!

In addition to these little humans in our lives, we also have two adult cats, two dogs, and four kittens that we call our furbabies.  Buddy is solid black and the shy one of the bunch.  He's been with us since Sept. 30, 2003 when we found him sitting in a pizza box in the middle of the parking lot at Wal-Mart.  He sleeps on my feet every night and keeps me warm and cozy.  Maggie showed up on our doorstep on Feb. 2, 2011 and we discovered about two weeks later that she was pregnant!  We planned on adopting out the kittens after they weaned, but...we fell in love with them and here we sit with six cats.  Sigh.  They sure do bring us a lot of joy, though!

Rosie is our older dog, a cocker spaniel/basset hound mix (we think).  She's blonde and has these huge sad eyes, but don't let her fool you...she's incredibly spoiled.  She sleeps between us in our king size bed every night!  She was wandering the neighborhood, practically skin and bones when we adopted her.  She pretty much hit the jackpot. :)  Ruby is our AKC-registered Doberman.  She joined us in May 2011 and has proven to be our "gentle giant."  Its kind of like having a horse in the house, but she is so good with the kids and super-protective and loyal.  We love her like she's always been with us!

So that's us!  We have a lot of fun together, that's for sure...
