Introduction...

Welcome to our Patch!

I am excited that you are checking out my new blog. I have often wanted to be able to write and "talk" about our daily happenings around this crazy place we call home and I have finally had the time and energy to get this up and going. I have lots to learn about this space and about blogging in general but I am excited about this new project of mine and hope that it helps with keeping up with all six of us.

Just to set this all straight from the beginning, I want to let you know where my blog title came from, The Punkin Patch. From the time that I can remember I have been known by my Dad as Punkin, not Pumpkin. When I asked him as a young girl why he called me Punkin, he responded with, "There are lots of pumpkins in the world but only one punkin, and that's you!". So, I wear the nickname with pride and thrilled that at ..uh hum.. 34 years old... {{whincing when I say that now :) }} my Dad still calls me that! In high school, I even had a vanity plate "Punkn". I'm sure Frank will love me for sharing this one, when I tell you that while we were dating, he too earned the nickname "punkin" from his co-workers since they saw it on my car plate, hehehe! And so recently I started refering to our family as the punkin patch because there are so many of us (however we are done growing as far as we are concerned, lol). And that is how this blog received its title... make any sense at all?? Well it does to me and I hope it does to you!

Stop by again soon to see updated pics of the kids and more information on what we are up to and have going on in our lives. I look forward to hearing from all of you from time to time!

Thanks Margo! I LOVE her songs too, they could be written straight from my heart or should have been!
Thanks for checking out my blog... I read yours when I get the chance and show pics of the boys to Cam and Colby. They still speak of Nate often and miss him!

This looks like fun!!! The wheels are turning in my brain...could I do something like this??? Maybe! It would be nice to put stories about the girls and what new tricks they are up too.

I'll be reading any updates on those precious kids of yours... That husband though... maybe I should start calling him punkn like his coworkers used to call him. That's so cute!!!

I just took a few minutes to read your blog. Love the sticker art by Colby and the Cam story. I, too, have been going through a "miss your mom" period more than usual for the past few months. Not sure why but one thing I am sure of is that she would love the woman that you are.
