Commet Challenge {Day 1}

I'm taking part of Jenna's Comment Challenge this week. It's a great opportunity to get other readers over to your blog and to make new bloggy friends!
Today's topic is: Tell about yourself. 
So here we are:

My name is Cristin.
Mid year of 1986 I was born and the world hasn't been the same since, or at least that's what my parents tell me. Being the stubborn child, my mom had to be induced into labor with me. Not much has changed about me in that way either. I'm one that has always taken my time and has never been in a hurry for much. There are a lot of pros and cons to that approach, but I've managed well, so far.

In 2004, I graduated high school and went away to college. I made a lot of wonderful friends and made many great memories.

Sweet Avery was born in 2008 weighing in at a whopping 8 lb 9 oz.  He was the perfect baby. He slept well, ate well, and was generally happy all the time. He's currently 3 1/2 years old. In 2011 he was diagnosed with mild Autism and Apraxia of Speech. He is working very hard every week at school and has made so much progress. He enjoys anything to do with tractors, airplanes, trains, boats, and trucks. He also enjoys watching Bob the Builder and Thomas the Train. Avery has a sweet heart and is a very loving and caring child.

In 2010 I met the love of my life, Chris, and his son Trevor.

Chris enjoys college football, movies, music, and hanging out with buddies. His since of humor always keeps me smiling and laughing. There is not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for bringing him into my life.

Trevor is a happy 8 year old who has a very vivid imagination. He loves arts and crafts, writing stories, Spongebob, playing Wii, and Star Wars Legos. As of right now, when he grows up he wants to be an engineer. He's a big ball of energy and Avery adores and looks up to him.

We might be a blended family, but we blend well and we all love each other. There is lots of love, laughter, and smiles in our home. We are blessed to both come from close family's that we spend time with often and cherish dearly.

Chris and I are getting married October 20th and are ecstatic!

I blog about my life, raising kids, crafts, photography, and food. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy writing it.
