Our family so far…


So Nathan and I met when my roommate brought him home after their second date. I got to know him while they were dating for four months. She did not have a car at the time so he would come over quite a bit and we all would hang out together. At the time I never thought of him as more than a friend.  Quite a few months after they broke up, he and I started to get together with mutual friends once again and I felt like something was going to happen between us. I felt like I needed to ask my roommates permission before we dated and conveniently enough she came up to me on the morning before our first real date and said that if anything happened between Nathan and I she was totally cool with it. Needless to say I was relieved that this was not going to be an issue. Two weeks later we were engaged and seven weeks after that we were married on August 4th 2006.

We both knew we were going to get married before we said a word to each other.  For me it was when we were dancing at a country swing dance and the thought that came to my head was “the only question is when.”  There was no denying it either.  The rest of the night when I got home I KNEW we were going to get married and I could hardly sleep and Nathan knew around that time too because if I recall correctly it was the next night he brought up how he felt, and it was exactly how I felt.

Ahnna Belén came along in 2007 and she is free willed and a dare devil.  She talks non stop and she is overall a very happy and easy kid.

Isaac Nathan came in 2009 and is into trains and cars. He roar’s and chases his sister and makes me laugh.

Summer Lilly was my Mother’s Day present in 2011.  She a little cutie and  her siblings love her.

Nathan is a Pharmacist here in Washington.  We live in our first house and we could not be happier.  Our family is chugging along trying to make it through each day learning to love and serve each other.

    I asked my husband if Mildred Spinelli sounded familiar and it didn’t ring a bell sorry. I guess Spinelli is a really popular name especially on the east coast.

    Hi Ya Wendy

    I just was reading your site, and I am so happy for you. Your boy was born when my son was June 5th 1969. He is here in clarkston now to pick up his family (5 kids under 6 yrs) to move to there new home in Nashville Tenn. They just bought there new home.
    I hope GW and I can leave for TEXAS for a month in Sept. In november we have plans to fly to NAshville so my daughter in law can go visit her mom in Korea. Babysitting that many children takes two of us, and then we are pooped.
    love your new home too!

    God has blessed you with health and happiness girl!
