I am a stay-at-home mom of three girls living in a small town in South Dakota. I am currently working on two personal blogs. Thue Crue is my family blog. It is my goal as a mom to help my kids have an unforgettable childhood. Adventures of the Thue Crue is my family's adventures, the good the bad and the ugly. We love to explore, craft and let our imaginations run wild.

Girlfriends Get Real is a blog that focuses on my desire to share my thoughts on Faith. I am not perfect and this blog gives me an opportunity to share my story, my struggle and my journey. I love the Lord with all of my heart, all of my soul, all of my strength and all of my mind (Luke 10:27). I strive to grow in my relationship with Jesus Christ every day.

When I am not writing online I can be found: reading, scrapbooking, and spending time with my family. I am married to a wonderful man that helps me to dream big and finances all of our crazy adventures. He graciously lives in a house full of pink, ponytails and a lot of drama.

Taylor is our soon to be 9-year-old daughter. She loves to write and draw. She plays the piano and sings. Already she loves to be center stage.

Madelyn is our soon to be 7-year-old daughter. She is already way too high fashion for me. I don't have to persuade her to get ready in the morning. Soon, I am sure she will be the fashion director of this house. She will tell you already how horrible it is to be the middle child. (and I sympathize with her because I was a middle child, too)

Nadia is our soon to be 4-year-old daughter. She is the Queen of the Castle, just ask her. She starts everyday with chocolate milk and Dora the Explorer. She can be found cruising down the sidewalk on her training wheels shouting, "Look at me!"

My blogs are ever-changing because God isn't finished with me yet. It is my goal to share with my readers a glimpse into our lives as we try to honor Jesus Christ in everything we do. I want this to be a fun place for you to stop off to laugh with me, cry with me and watch me try to create a childhood that my children will never forget.

Sorry In Advance

Just wanted to let all of you following my blog that you will see a few posts from me today. I am working on adding a Navigation Bar to my site and the only way I know how is to post each of the pages I am trying to link to. I guess you won't have click on the links if I ever get them to work because you will have already received them. . .wish me luck all of this computer language is giving me a headache.

My Little CEO

Cheaper Than Therapy

Okay for those of you that read my Wordful Wednesday post yesterday. . .it gets even better. My oldest daughter has moved on to a formal presentation to get her own room in the basement. I think she will be a CEO someday.

She had a storyboard and speaking prompts. Where did she learn all of this stuff?

She even tried to compliment my "Sense of Style" and her dad's "Strong Man Abilities".

This is her calling her grandpa to come and put her new carpet in. She said he said, "sure" ("What do you think Grandpa?")

Later in the evening I saw all three girls headed upstairs with suitcases. She decided they should help her pack up her room??

Head over to Cheaper Than Therapy to join in A Thousand Word Thursday Fun.
