Meet My Family

 

24 years ago I was a single mother to my 9 year old son Aaron.  I was doing what I needed to do to take care of us and going to school as well; we were in a good place in our life but we were alone.  Something or someone was missing…….

Then I met Jose a man who is my total opposite in most ways, we were the 2 people who no one would ever put together.  Well here it is almost 25 years later and we are still going strong.  We raised Aaron together and now we are the proud Grandparents to Brenden who just turned 5 and his sister Lexi who will be 3 very soon.  We are very happy.

One of the best things about marrying Jose is that along with him came his awesome family.  When you marry a Gonzalez kid you become one as well.

2 years ago we lost both of Jose’s parents and my Mom; it was a hard time but we all remained strong as a family.

One of the most fun things we do as a family is have get-togethers.  This weekend was my sister in law Mary’s 47th birthday and most of us gathered at her house.  There was tons of food ,fun and love and most of all there was laughter…

This is Mary the birthday girl.

Now of course these are not everyone but these are the best of the photos I took.

I guess the whole purpose of this post to to say how happy I am to be part of a loving family that accepts me and loves me as I am.  I am very thankful and blessed, and proud to introduce you to my family…..
