The journey of Shane Eubanks and Crystal Alred
Our little guy is just blossoming with each new day. His vocabulary has just exploded in the past couple of months and he’s just talking, REPEATING, singing, and even trying to back-talk some, up a storm! He’s very much 2 years old, with a strong willed, outgoing, happy, curious, funny personality. He’s loving playing outside, going to the pool, playing with friends, watching movies, doing puzzles, reading books, and so on!
We transferred him to his “big boy” toddler bed last week. He’s done really well with it so far. When he first saw it, he said “Uh oh, broke, Daddy fix it!” He stays in it all night long and for naps. I’m so proud of him!
We’ve recently taken him to Dollywood and the Tellus Museum. He had so much fun riding all the little rides at Dollywood and hasn’t stopped talking about them yet. This really excites me to take him to Disney World in October! He enjoyed all the of the Dinosaurs at the Tellus Museum with his beloved “Lulu” (Carli).
Today, he locked me out of the house while he was still inside! LOL! It really wasn’t funny when it hapenned, but I can laugh now! I was on the back porch scrubbing his booster seat and he was inside watching me through the door. He locked it, too- little booger! I had to run to a neighbor’s house and call my mom to come and unlock. Whew, you just NEVER, EVER know what to expect when you have a two year old!
It’s hard to believe that Harper Cole is already an energetic, silly, sneaky, precious, loving, feisty, AMAZING little two-year-old! He’s turned into such an awesome little guy. He’s learning new things every single day and with each of those days, we just NEVER know what to expect! Haha, I love that about him. He’s into everything, trying to figure out this great big ol’ world he live in. He’s talking more and more, piecing together phrases and short, choppy sentences. We truly have to watch every little word that we say, because our personal parrot repeats just about everything he hears- in his funny little Harper Cole “way”. He says one and even some three syllable words pretty well, but two syllable words he does this little repeating thing. Some examples are “b-blank” (blanket), “fing-fings” (fingers), “ca-cook” (cookie) and so on….He doesn’t do it all the time, but when he does it’s pretty funny! I repeat the word the way it’s supposed to be pronounced, but I’m going to be honest and say that the way he puts his own little spin on words is precious and I know I’ll miss it some day!
He loves to play with his beloved trains, trucks, cars, tractors- basically anything that rolls. He also loves puzzles, books, blocks, and anything he has to take apart, figure out, or put together. I love to just watch him and envision those tiny wheels turning in that beautiful brain that God has given him. He plays very well independently, but enjoys “rough-housing”, chasing, and being silly with his buddies too. He loves to play outdoors at the playground (Smilebox below), on his playset, in his play area in the backyard with toys, and with friends just about anywhere. He likes to go to indoor jumpy places, also. We recently started a 2-year-old “Mommy and Me” tumbling class- this is interesting because our little fellow isn’t the most coordinated! He’s not jumping or running fast yet, but we’ll get there! He’s also finishing up his last semester in Kindermusik. That’s been a lot of fun and we’ve made some wonderful little friends. He enjoys going to the nursery and playing with his little church buddies on on Wednesdays and Sundays. We try to have play-dates with his little friends as often as possible to encourage social skills and just to enjoy the company of good friends!
I could go on for days about Harper Cole…we just cherish our sweet boy…he’s just so funny and truly a joy to be around (most of the time, ha!) He has his days here and there where the “terrible, but terrific” twos are verrrry evident, haha! He minds pretty well, but he does get into trouble and he does have his “sit-down” rug where he goes to chill out. He’s so loved and he knows that…I pray every day for wisdom from above to “train up my child in the way he should go….” Enjoy the pictures below of our little blessing having a fun day at the the playground…(must go now, heard a crash…haha!)

My papaw, Jim Reagan, walked into the arms of the Lord on Sunday, February 28, 2010. Many people may remember him from his days in construction, as mayor of Pigeon Forge, on the board of directors at local bank, the courthouse, BP Station, FOP, Scottish Rite, or having the fastest cars down at Tarwater straights. I was blessed to know him as “Papaw.”
And what an amazing Papaw he was. I know he dealt with a lot of junk in his days, but he never brought his troubles through the threshold of his home. He always came in smilin’ and whistlin’…he was solid as an oak. As a matter of fact, his casket was made of oak. We chose it because….well….it was the one Mamaw liked the most!! The oak, though, was very fitting the way he lived his life as he stood firm through whatever life dealt him.
Papaw loved to help people. I may never know the extent of all of the people he has impacted over the years. I caught a glimpse of them at the funeral home, but I am certain there are so many more that Papaw has helped at some point in their lives whether he gave them something, did something for them, pulled a favor, etc. He would do anything for anyone.
Papaw often reminded me of a quote I once heard by famous UCLA basketball coach John Wooden who said, “You can’t live a perfect day until you do something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” Well, Papaw lived many perfect days….and many people didn’t repay him. But ya know…that never stopped him from continuing to give…and help….and pull favors.
He lived to help others.
He gave until his heart literally couldn’t give any more.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, “Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might…”
Papaw exemplified that verse as he would do everything he could for anyone he could. He loved all of us.
We’ve been blessed to have had Jim Reagan as a part of our lives.
And I’m extremely honored to have known him as “Papaw.”
Another year has flown by as Harper Cole celebrates his second birthday! We celebrated with him at our house along with many friends and family that share our love for the lil guy. I’m pretty sure he already has more friends than I do!
For those of you that couldn’t join us, the theme this year was “trains”, which could be found on his cake, cupcakes, balloons, tv, pinata, sandwiches, etc. He even had train presents! He was on cloud nine!
He clapped for everyone that sang him happy birthday just as he did on his first birthday and proceeded to blow out his candle on his cupcake.
We had a blast and sincerely appreciate all of those that could make it. We’re very blessed to have such great friends and family!
Just as I did with the first year, I made a short slideshow that includes some of Harper Cole’s moments throughout his 2nd year. You can see the video below:
Any of you that know me, most likely know of my Mamaw Reagan and what an incredible blessing she has been to me over the years. I simply cannot reach a pedestal or cloud high enough to put her up on…seriously…she’s that amazing. Well, today (January 19) is her birthday. And if you don’t know about my Mamaw Reagan, let me share a bit about why she’s so special.
She has always been there for everyone with love and support that cannot be measured. She always puts others before herself…in everything. Even when she makes her amazing Belgian waffles. She’s always the last one to fix her plate…and usually takes the slightly burnt ones and insists “that’s how she likes them”. While that may be true, I’ve always had my doubts. I cannot think of one single time in my entire life when she has told anyone that she couldn’t be there, couldn’t take them somewhere, or couldn’t help them in any way due to something else she had going on. I’ve watched her drop many things, many times to help whoever may be in need….of anything. As hard as I try, I cannot match the love and support she shows others. She simply lives for others.
She never forgets a special occasion and always remembers to write, call, etc. She always has a way of making people feel special and taking the time to sit and write letters. I’m not talking about a card bought at hallmark with her name signed in it. I’m talking about a personal letter penned on every single flap of the card…and if there wasn’t enough room to write what she wanted to say, she’ll add in a couple sheets of stationery (that is designed in something the recipient would like I might add) that is also filled in front-to-back with barely a speck of paper un-inked. I love those letters. In a time where most people receive emails (which are fine), the personal touch and knowing she takes the time to sit and write is something I treasure.
As I sit here struggling to find the words that completely explain how much Mamaw Reagan means to me…the more I realize words can’t describe it. But I’ll say this…
I wouldn’t be where I am today without her love.
She has given me so much support over the years and exemplifies everything that is right with the world. God knew I’d need someone special on earth to get me through numerous bumps in life, and boy did He ever deliver. I honestly have never met anyone quite like my Mamaw Reagan that shows the unconditional love that she freely gives. Her compassion and the lengths that she goes to in order to help those in need are things that admire so incredibly much about her. She absolutely makes me want to be a better person. The example that she has shown me over the years is something that continues to amaze me and I honestly don’t know how she shoulders the responsibilities that she has taken upon herself.
But I know this…
I pray for her every single day that God continues to give her strength to keep being the amazing & loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend she is to so many people. I thank God every single day for that incredible woman. So many people have been blessed be her presence….and today is her day. January 19 is the day that God blessed so many people with “Betty Jo”. I thank God for her….I thank God for today…and last but not least…
Mamaw Reagan….Happy Birthday. I love you.
My little buddy is just talking away! I love to hear all of his expressions and attempts at what he’s hearing. Here’s a few precious things he’s said lately that I want to make sure I remember!
He loves his Little People Nativity, Oh Little Town of Bethlehem Book, and anything else that has a picture of a nativity scene on it. He identifies “Jeesis….Baby” in a heartbeat! So much that the other night we had a musical at church that I sang with the choir in. Little HC was in the audience and when the children did a depiction of the nativity scene, he yelled out “Jeesis…baby!”. He also yelled out “Mamen!” (to which Carli from a few pews over yelled “Amen, Harper!” LOL! He also decided to randomly count “1!, 2! 3!” in the middle of the service too! Haha, he decided there needed to be a few additions to the program!
He calls Santa Claus “S-sant C-caw” and then immediately in his lowest little voice and his little mouth in a tiny 0-shape says, “Ho, ho, ho…”
He adores the Polar Express Movie and is constantly asking for “Po Spress”…he’s getting to the point where he remembers part of the movie and repeats what’s being said.
One of my new favorite things he’s saying is “Ko-Kay” (ok), and he says it just like Eeyore…very low and slow. He uses the word in the correct context if I ask him a question, but he also uses it when he’s trying to “make a deal” with me! He’ll say something like “Mama, trains, ko-kay….” or “Eat, fruit, ko-kay…” Haha!
He’s finally counting from zero to ten by himself, only sometimes skipping a number here and there. For the longest, he just absolutely would not say seven…he’s getting the hang of it now, though!
He loves to sing. Jingle Bells is just “B-Bells, B-bells” and he fills in words that he knows are coming up in the song like “way” and “sleigh” and “bright” and “night”…it’s funny to hear!
He just learned the shape of the circle. He can identify it as “s-circ” and always says “roun and roun, roun and roun”. He can also draw it! Hooray!
He really likes the song, “The Wheels on the Bus”. He knows the wheels go “roun and roun, roun and roun”, the horn goes “beep beep beep, beep beep beep”, the babies go “ah, ah,ah, ah, ah,ah”, the mommies go “shh, shh, shh, shh, shh,shh”. He also does little motions, it’s really cute!
I could go on and on as he’s always saying something new or funny, but I’d be here all day! He’s such a gift from God and I adore being his mommy!
We are enjoying the holidays so much with our little guy this year! He’s at SUCH a fun, curious age and he just loves all the activities, sights, sounds, smells, and so on that are indicative of the Christmas season. We’ve already done several things with him!
The Lighting of the Christmas Tree at Atlantic Station: This was our first holiday event. We went and saw the enormous tree in Atlantic Station lit. It was huge and Harper seemed to enjoy it, but not quite as much as the little Christmas train that he got to ride around in. He was thrilled when he saw that! We’ve been showing him the Polar Express so therefore he was calling the little train “spress”! He loves watching that movie!
Decorating the House: He loves all the lights and decorations inside the house! He “helped” daddy put the tree together and “helped” me with a few ornaments. We have a special choochoo going around the tree just for him and he thinks it’s just great. The only problem is that he wants it to run non-stop…haha! When it isn’t running, he says “train broke!”. He’s also enjoying all the small decorations and also enjoying moving them around for me. He has a special Little People nativity in his bedroom. He points to the “kings”, “Bebe Jeesis”, and “Mama” (Mary) and “Daddy” (Joseph) along with some of the animals.
Stone Mountain Christmas: We went back this year with the Godfrey’s…just like last year. The place was absolutely MAGICAL for the little ones this year! They loved the parade, the thousands of lights, the snow angel, the Christmas TRAIN (they even tell the story of Jesus’ birth!), the Polar Express 4D, Hilda the Goat, and more! It was a great time had by all! Harper Cole and Carli wore precious little matching outfits…again! Haha!
Cartersville Christmas Parade: He loooved seeing all the floats and decorations! It was cold, but worth it!
Santa Pictures: I was a little anticipatory of Harper Cole being upset when we sat him on Santa’s lap, but he did GREAT! He had on a precious little outfit that resembled an elf and he looked precious in his picture! The mall train went by at just the right time, so we got a good picture of our sweet little guy seeing “Ho, ho, ho…CanCaws”
Breakfast in Bethlehem at Church:Such a precious morning spent at our church with good friends. We started off by having breakfast (HC asked for green beans…haha!), then we listened to the Christmas story read from Luke, then we did a sticker nativity crafts and painted an ornament, and finally we went outside to pet the animals. Harper Cole was ALL about the petting zoo! He hopped right in there and pet the goats and bunnies. He cried “goat, goat” when we had to leave. It was a sweet time with our little family and friends!
…more to come…
Harper Cole had a fun time this Halloween. He was dressed up as a little engineer driving a choo-choo train, his FAVORITE thing in the whole wide world! He had the opportunity to wear his beloved little costumes 4 different times the week of Halloween. He wore it first for Kindermusik dress up day. It was sweet to see his little classmates dressed up…they had fun. He got to wear it for the second time when we went trick-or-treating in downtown Cartersville 2 days before Halloween. Mammy, Granddaddy, Christy, and Carli joined us. Harper Cole has been working on saying “Trick or Treat”…he says “tick teet!”. He was a little confused about the whole putting candy in his pumpkin, though. He wanted to eat whatever was given to him! He really racked up with candy (haha, so did Mommy and Daddy since he only has 9 teeth and can’t eat most of it!). He dressed up for the third time to go the the Fall Festival at church on Halloween morning. It was raining, so several of the outdoor activities were cancelled (like the choochoo), but he still had fun with the indoor games. Finally, we dressed him to trick-or-treat at a few houses around the neighborhood on Halloween evening. He was so funny! He would just help himself to the bowls of candy or he welcomed himself into people’s houses! He has had a really yucky cold, so we only went to a few houses for him to experience Halloween. We had lots of fun since this was our first time as parents taking our little guy out trick-or-treating. Our sweet little Engineer sure is a joy and a precious, amazing, wonderful gift from God!!
We went to the cabin in Ellijay on on Friday night (October16) and stayed there with Mammy and DanDane….we all got up on Saturday morning and headed to Burt’s Pumpkin Farm. It was SO cold (about 45 or 50 degrees and windy). We bundled up big time! We met our friends the Godfrey’s and the Rutledges there. We took lots of pumpkin pictures, went on a hayride, drank hot apple cider (mmmm), and let Harper Cole pick out his very own pumpkin…or as he calls it “pa-puntz”! We had lunch at the lodge at Amicalola Falls. We stayed at the cabin again on Saturday night with the Godfrey’s. Sunday we got up and went into downtown Ellijay for lunch at a cafe called Canterbury’s. It was yummy! After that, we went to the HUGE Apple Festival. They had to bring us in by a bus, which Harper Cole enjoyed on the way back…he was asleep on the way there! We had a bunch of fun in this glorious fall weather God’s given us!

If you are wondering what in the world that means, just ask the little guy. “Baboo Cole Janks” is what he calls himself! It absolutely cracks me up every time I hear him say it, so therefore I just HAD to share that with everyone! We’ve been busy playing, going to story time, playing with friends, going to Kindermusik, and just enjoying the fall weather. We took a trip up to Pigeon Forge last weekend so Mommy and Daddy could go to the TN game. Baboo stayed with his Granna Tana, Mamaw, Papaw, and Great Aunt Lori (aka “oach”). They had fun with him and he enjoys it! Harper Cole also got to spend some time with Mammy’s side of the family a couple of days again. His Aunt Maureen (aka “Reen”), Uncle Tony, Aunt Amber, and cousins Monica and Bryce all came over to Mammy’s for dinner. He had a good time hanging out with everyone. Aunt Reen went with us to Kindermusik and bought a couple of treats for HC….fun times! Will update after this weekend (Carlton Farm on Friday, then Burts Pumpkin Farm on Saturday–spending the weekend in Ellijay with family and friends!)
Harper Cole is 19 months old now and just full of sooooo much energy! He keeps us laughing with all of his funny expressions, sayings, and actions. I am just blown away by how much he learns and soaks in things with each and every day. He will repeat just about anything you ask him to say (sometimes it’s right on target, sometimes it’s sorta close, and sometimes it’s just the way he wants to say it!). It’s funny how I know his little language and can usually figure out what he’s trying to get across! He’s adding more two and three word expressions into his vocabulary also…”there it goes”, “play, trains, fun”, “I’m sweet”, “I’m strong”, “train tracks”, “eat, yum”, and so on…
He’s growing like a weed, looking more like a two-year old than a 19 month old baby. He’s skinny as a rail though, so that makes life very interesting when it comes to getting a good fit with clothing! His hair is very blonde and he’s already had 3 haircuts in the back because it grows slowly on top and quickly in the back which = mullet. Ha! He’s very active…he loves to run, chase, swing, slide, ride toys, and just wiggle all around!
He’s into Thomas the Train, trains in general, Elmo, Backyardigans, Veggie Tales, Blue’s Clues, and so on….He LOVES books! (Hooray!!!) We read between 5 and 10 books a day and he relates what he learns to everyday life! For example, we’ve been reading a book to him that has a big clock in it and every time he sees a clock (on watches, walls, and even downtown), he says “clock”. His favorite books are: “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?”, “Go Dogs Go”, “Good Morning Trains”, “Where’s Spot?”, “Goodnight Moon”, and “What Does Baby Say?”. He knows most of his letter sounds and is starting to identify the letters. For example, he saw an “A” on Shane’s shirt the other day, pointed to it, and said the a sound. Counting isn’t going as quickly…he still just says the numbers 2, 6, 9, and 10. I’m sure the others will come with time!
He’s enjoying football season being here already! He says “go vols” (vuvols), “sack-em” (sacks), “football” (fuball), “Tennesse” (Tinsee), and “touchdown”. His playground and play area are finished in the backyard, so he loves to go “awside” and “pay” and have “fun”. We go to Kindermusik once a week and we go to storytime at the library once a week. We usually have at least one playdate a week with a friend. We’ve been really blessed to be surrounded by other awesome mommies and babies! I try to do crafty or hands-on activities with him each day. He loves to build with blocks, put together simple puzzles, color, paint (whew, that’s messy!), and just try to figure things out in general.
He has a pretty good memory when it comes to driving around town…he knows where ALL the train tracks are (imagine that!), where the turn-off is to go to the library (he says “books”), he says “bump” when we hit a bump, he says “clock” when we pass the big ones around town, he says “church” when we get close, and he says “out” when I park in a parking lot…haha! Funny guy!
He’s a very good baby, but he is entering that age where he’s trying us. “No” is a big part of the vocabulary, he does tense up and stomp his feet every once in awhile, he’s even tried to hit a time or two. I’m sure these are all a part of growing up, learning what he can and CAN’T get away with, and figuring things out. We try to discipline him in a Godly way, making each “episode” a learning experience. Whew!
We are so incredibly blessed to spend every moment with our sweet angel! He is SO much fun right now, this is an awesome age, and I thank God every single day for my sweet boy!
There aren’t many people that can say they got to see a great grandparent or even a great-great grandparent, but I was blessed to spend 31 years of my life with my great-grandmother “Mamaw Cole” who was Harper’s great-great-grandmother and is where Harper’s middle name came from (along with Papaw Cole). For 18+ months of Harper Cole’s life, he was part of 5 living generations spanning down the Cole family tree. Simply an amazing blessing.
Mamaw Cole was full of love, laughs, hugs, kisses,
smacks pats on the cheek, candy, and all of the stuff that makes grandmothers “great”…but most of all she was full of faith. She loved the Lord and wanted to share Jesus with everyone she knew. More than anything she wanted to make sure her children, grandchildren, relatives and friends were saved. You see…she wanted to be more than a mother, grandmother, relative or friend. She wanted to be a sister in Christ. She wanted to join everyone she knew in the glory of Heaven one day. That was her dying desire…she literally wept at the thought of “lost” family members and friends…because for those unsaved, all that Kate Cole would be is a mother, grandmother, relative, or friend.
Mamaw wanted to give the gift of salvation to everyone she knew…but unfortunately she couldn’t simply “give” it as easily as a piece of Bazooka bubble gum, Double Bubble, or a Blow Pop. The gift of salvation comes as a personal decision…it takes all of the heart, but it’s a decision that can be made in a heartbeat. Mamaw planted the seed of faith in an untold number of people and she was blessed to see many of those people accept Christ during their life and know that she’d one day see them again…the blessed assurance.
Mamaw Cole’s funeral service was a beautiful celebration of her life and a magnificent testimony to God. Hundreds of people showed up to pay their respects, share stories, and witness God’s work through this wonderful little lady. I heard numerous people say, “When I go, this is exactly how I’d like to be remembered.” For those that were there…you know what I mean. For those that weren’t, I simply can’t describe the feelings and emotions during that funeral service, but I can say it was the most powerful and God-inspired service I have ever experienced. The impact she had on people’s lives was simply breathtaking.
And yes…when I go, “that’s exactly how I want to be remembered”.
For 3 years, Mamaw’s children cared & provided for her in order to keep her out of a nursing home. They endured more than I could ever imagine with unconditional love and I simply cannot thank them enough for what they did. Through their efforts, Mamaw got to see her great-great grandson be born…experience his first laughs…witness his dedication in the church…see his First Christmas…be there (over 200 miles away) for his first birthday…and so much more. God blessed her with loving children that helped keep her with us and creating many wonderful memories I’ll never forget.
So…as I wipe away the tears, manage a slight smile in the corner of my mouth, and thank God for the love…the memories…and the faith that was Mamaw Cole….I remember what she’d always say when I would tell her “I love you”. She’d reply with “I love you more.” Well, Mamaw…I love you most.
Finally…I want to share this video of her making Harper Cole laugh when he was 4 months old. It was one of the first times that he laughed out loud…and it was all for his sweet, great-great-grandmother. She’d always hold him and say, “Mamaw loves somebody.”
Mamaw…these somebodies will always love you, too….
It sounds so weird to call him a “toddler”, but it is what it is and it’s wonderful! Harper Cole is learning new things by the minute, it seems! He’s really talking a good bit, trying to repeat just about anything we say. A lot of the time it sounds just like the work and other times it doesn’t. Here’s some of his latest Harper Cole expressions:
love you (lu-ya)
Grandaddy (Dan Dan)
Patrick (Pa Pa)
Backyardigans (Gin Gins)
Thomas (Don Don)
thank you (tan too)
Woops…I must go, he’s standing on the couch!
During Harper’s first Halloween, he was decked out as a lil’ cowboy, but he had these booty things that “looked” like boots since he wasn’t walking yet. Well…I think it’s finally time to bump him into his very first kids cowboy boots! I didn’t realize there were so many cowboy boots for boys and girls to choose from! I thought they would come in basic black or brown, but noooooo. Just try clicking the link above or the image below and seeing how many kids cowboy boots for boys and girls are available. It’s insane!
Maybe I’ll just let his mommy stick to buying the shoes…
We spent last week in PCB with the Godfreys and had a great time! The ride down was the only problem- Harper Cole got carsick all over the place, bless his little heart! He must get that from me, I tend to get carsick pretty easily myself. We arrived to amazing weather and the most beautiful water I’ve ever seen at at Florida beach, it looked like something from the Caribbean! Harper Cole loved the ocean from the very start (especially in Carli’s boat), but he DID NOT like the sand very much. He didn’t want to touch it at all- not even with his feet, with Crocs on! Haha….we eased him into it during the week starting with a blanket that he stayed completely on, then he moved to the edge of the blanket and barely played with it….and by the end of the week, he was walking around in it okay. He napped on the beach, he loved the pool, he really loved the kiddie area at the Splash resort (we went there twice), and he and Carli were a hoot playing together with each other. Harper Cole blew bubbles, flew a Mickey Mouse (a.k.a. “DotDog”) kite with Daddy, rode a choochoo train, watched the grownups about about break their necks on the banana boat, hung out with Carli’s grandparents (he really liked her Poppy!), played with all of his pool and beach toys, went to Gulf World, and more!
Harper Cole turned 18 months old at the beach! Hard to believe it’s already been a year since he turned 6 months old at the beach! Time flies by with a little one, doesn’t it? He also finally started cutting another tooth! He now has one complete tooth on the bottom, one half of another one next to that, and now a little slit on the top! Maybe some different food in in store for him soon! He’s at such an awesome age right now, though. I enjoy every single minute. He’s repeating so much, he’s so curious about so many things, and he’s just all boy! He’s a loving little boy giving hugs and kisses out left and right. He’s got some spunk too, buddy! He also likes to test us to see what he can get away with. He’s such a joy, such a blessing, and I thank God for him every day!!

This website started as I (Shane) began working on the proposal for Crystal in December, 2005. Since then, it has become the log of everything involved with the wedding, honeymoon, and other tidbits of our daily lives including the
name-calling hair-pulling multiple beatings wonderful things we have to say about each other. Yes...these pages show how much in trouble love we are. :)
