I originally started this blog in November 2009 when we found out we were expecting our little man Sawyer. I failed miserably at keeping up on postings and after he was born posted maybe twice. So now I'm here to start fresh and new, but still battling with the idea of tossing the old posts or just leaving them there.
Anyhow, let me give you a short peak in to who we are.

Me: Lisa, age 34, born and raised in Washington State. Met hubby in college and we've been together ever since. Married in 2005. I love to read, cook, spend time with my family and friends. Out of a desire to save money and raise our kids in a healthier fashion I am trying new crunchier things and hope to post about things that are working for us.

Hubby: Eric, age 33, born in California and raised on Washington. I really should have him write this himself! He's my strong goofy nerd! Hehe..........my sister says he's not a nerd but even he agrees that he is! He is a SUPER daddy changing and swishing poopy cloth diapers even though he detests it. He's along for the ride for the most part with my whole crunchy kick. Though he does almost all of the the dirty and hard work with the garden and compost.

Whisper: We welcomed Whisper in to our home as a 5-day-old foster baby. We finalized her adoption in September 2009. She is an absolute delight.....on most days. She is very strong willed, inquisitive, smart and sensitive. She tries so hard to be the best big sister but we do deal with the "Green Eyed Monster" on a daily basis.

Ryleigh: Ryleigh is our daughter, too beautiful for this earth. She was born sleeping on March 17th, 2009. Our lives and who we are have been forever changed by our losing her.

Sawyer: We welcomed our little man in to our family on July 8th, 2010. He looks just like his mama. Other than that blond hair and blue eyes! Though both mama and daddy had blond hair when they were little. We are currently struggling with his health. About two weeks after his 1st birthday he started having seizures and in September 2011 he was diagnosed with generalized epilepsy.
