bankruptcy....we are finally pulling ourselves out of any of that obscurity, and pressing on. We have an amazing support system around us. We have family and friends that love and think of us often. People ask, "how the hell do you do it?" well, it's simple really...the one thing that has remained constant through all of our trials and tribulations is our love for each other. Every one of us has an amazing amount of love, respect, devotion, and admiration for one another. This is not to say that we don't get ugly...yes, we disagree, we cry, we put on our arguing faces, we get angry, we scream, we yell...but, as naive as this may sound, John had it right...love really is all you need. I truly know that in my heart of hearts, that we are sometimes knocked flat on our asses when change needs to be made. We are awakened to what is truly in store for us, and sometimes, because we fail to listen, it hurts like a mother fucker. We were hurting for a while, but slowly, the hurt has faded and we are on the path to healing.

When did this happen? Looks like the last time I was on here was June, and here it is November and my sweet, sweet Adeline is turning 11 months old. This year has most definitely run away from me...hell, it's driven 65 mph in the opposite direction. Lets see if I am able to catch up. Please forgive the jumble of posts you are about to barraged with, regardless, I hope you enjoy.

Gosh...where to start. Tristan graduated preschool, Trinity moved on from first grade, our rental house is being foreclosed on, we took a trip, we had a baby...wait, you knew that....what else. We are constantly in a state of perpetual motion, but we are moving right along with it all, enjoying and soaking up each moment..even the bitter ones. I will post separate posts highlighting stuff that is Hydeman Family, and keep you all in the loop...I kinda promise this time...ok, maybe I won't stay as "on track" as I would like to be...but, I will try. That's all I can promise at this point.

My shannon....we have been together almost 17 years, more than half of my life, and he and I have been through everything. I love him more than words could ever say.

I am thinking that this is referring to a material thing...and I actually had to sit and think about this for a minute, because honestly, I think I could do without everything as long as I have my family. But, for the moment, I suppose I would have to say this, my house. Though it is not mine persay, I do inhabitant it, and I do appreciate that it keeps me and my family warm and safe from the elements. I appreciate the laughter that rings in these walls, the happiness that dwells in this place, and the security that my little one's feel being here. I am thankful for our landlord, that she is patient and kind, and that we are able to live here comfortably. I love this house, and the family that lives here.

I would love to know what is going on in that mind of yours.....to feel what you have been feeling, to know what you know...and to see things how you see it. I am amazed and in awe of you everyday Tristan...every second.

Would I pick any other night? April 13, 2001, our wedding night. I loved everything about this night, especially who I was marrying. I remember when I first met Shannon, I told my best friend Steven that I would marry that man one day, and everyone thought I was nuts, lovestruck and out of my mind. I just knew that when I first met him, that we would be together forever....here's to forever!

You have been teething like crazy, that tonight, you soaked your shirt with drool. I pulled you close to my body, and stared down into your happy sleeping face. The windows are slightly cracked and there is a nice breeze coming in, but our home is like a warm den, and you are my beautiful baby bear. I love you. I love your little body, your perfect little face and hands. The way that you breath and the way that you smile in your sleep. You are wrapped up in your special blanket, all hot pink and fuzzy. Your skin looks like a ripe apricot, I can't describe it any better than that. You are perfect. I am so happy that you are here with us, with me right now...that I can hold you, and love on you forever. Sleep tight baby girl.
Oooh, this is a tricky one. I have so many favorite nights. So, to make it easier on me, I am going to say, my favorite night in the past year. There...now it's not such a daunting task.

I just love these kids. Through all the trials, tribulations, terror, triumph, tenacity, tantrums, tempers, true heartedness, our t's have treated us well.
Trinity is getting bigger everyday. She towers over most of her 3rd grade friends, and keeps up with all the boys on her flag football team. Her favorite things are still animals, and the count now is up to 8! She takes care of them so well, she loves them and treats them like they are human. We are constantly amazed at her endless capacity to love. She cares for her brother like no other, defending him at any chance. She loves her new baby sister, and I just adore listening to her talk to her in her wee baby voice.
Tristan is doing so well in school. He loves it. His sign language has taken flight, and he is making more strides with his verbal language too. His energy level is through the roof, which is a far cry from the little boy who had difficulty walking far distances. He loves colors, shapes, numbers, letters and learning new languages. He is reading more words everyday and amazes us with his seemingly endless knowledge of things far beyond his grasp of understanding...or at least we thought.
I am happy. There have been a few tests of my patience, tests of my faith and tests of my ability to hold it all together. After everything, I am kept together with the knowledge that I am so blessed. My family is a beautiful full circle. I take the good with the bad, and know that there are much more good days ahead that the other.
This one was tricky for me...since I don't really watch television all too much anymore. So, I decided to put my favorite movie instead.
