The Whole Crazy Clan:
Mr. Martin (with me):
The love of my life, seriously I love this man so much!! He is the best father and husband I know, but he wouldn't agree because he's so humble. Phil grew up in Maryland and we met at Franciscan University's study abroad program in Austria. He was a Theology major and he stole my heart with his handsome looks, his friendly banter, and his charming wit. He's a hard-working theology teacher and department chair at our Catholic high school. He loves to eat even more than I do, and I am pushing him to grow in his love for exercise ;)
This little princess was such a welcome addition to our testosterone filled house :) Maggie is named after my grandmother, my mother, and Margaret is also my middle name. We were planning on calling her Margaret Rose, but as soon as she was born, I looked at Phil and said "We might never have another girl, and I want to get Mary in her name somehow", hence Rosemary. She is very girly, caring about her hair, her clothes, her shoes, and anything else she can have a say on. She is a tomboy too, loving sports and hanging out with the boys (when they let her!). Her dream is to one day have a sister, but if not, she's going to have lots of babies :)
Alexander "Xander" Blaise:
Our sweet and happy little baby boy has been an addition to our family that we never knew how much we were missing! Although many people say they are sorry we didn't get another girl...we seriously couldn't be happier that we have a little boy to complete our family (well, for now, anyways!). Declan is honestly our sweetest and easiest baby, and having lots of older siblings make it that much better! He's a petite little thing, who will probably never get to walk because somebody is always holding him. We love him so much!
I LOVE to exercise and I love to eat so I try to do both as much as possible. I went to Franciscan University (the best Catholic college!) and got my degree in Accounting, then stayed to get my MBA with an Accounting concentration. The plan was to sit for the CPA exam, but marriage and babies started coming, and I have yet to study and take the exam. Maybe one day?? I work full-time as a Business Manager at our Catholic High School (where Mr. Martin teaches). Life is an interesting journey, and with God's grace, we are enjoying it thoroughly.
