Our Story

Hello and welcome to my little life! I'm Janelle and my husband is Alan. We met in college and he said the minute he first saw me, he was going to marry me! Well after a few years of me pretty much ignoring him (thankfully he is a bit stubborn) I gave in and went on a 'date' with him. I was big into triathlons at the time and being the love-struck boy he was, he went out an bought a road bike and equipment. He trained on his bike, until he felt that he could keep up with me on the road ;) Then he asked me if I wanted to go for a ride. And so we did. A bike ride lead to lunches, which lead to dinners and movies. Which then lead to my 25th birthday where he flew his mom and dad up from Florida and surprised me with all my friends and family where he asked me to marry him! I said, "of course I will!" Nine months later on September 19, 2008 we were married in the church I grew up in. 
Wedding Day!
In January 2009 we bought our first home (where we currently live). Three bedroom, 1.5 baths, kitchen, living room, and an unfinished basement. Plus it has a large backyard with a creek and a wooded area. We remolded our home to make a bigger kitchen and we are still currently working on finishing the basement! 
Home Sweet Home
In March of 2009 we found out that we were expecting! Fast forward to November 28, 2009 and our little Benjamin came into this world weighing 7lbs 9 oz. and 20 inches long. Life would never be the same! 
Our family grows!
Then on Alan's birthday, May 10th of 2010 we got the biggest shock of our life, I found out I was pregnant again! Benjamin wasn't even six months old at the time! However, after the initial shock, we became excited about our little lady!

January 10, 2011 our little lady entered the world via repeat c-section. Having two babies just 13 months apart was/still is challenging, but it's so much fun! 
Family of four!
June 2011 we take a family vacation to Sarasota, FL and then to Jacksonville, FL (to visit with Alan's family). When we get back from our vacation, we found out that we were pregnant! However, we weren't too shocked, because even before taking the pregnancy test I had that feeling! Our next little one (we don't know if this one is a boy or girl!) will be here March 5, 2012 via repeat c-section! Our lives are about to get a bit more crazy, but a lot more fun! 

On March 5, 2012 our little Andrew Michael joined us! It was the best surprise not knowing the gender! Three babies in 27 months! It's been fun, crazy, and chaotic, but so, so worth it!
