I (Jen) and my husband (Stephen) have a very charmed life. Our son (David) is such a blessing to us! We love spending time with our friends and family and each other!



I will be honest….

I would like to write on here more often. Problem: I am feeling very, very unmotivated. Pregnancy has been a real drain on me… more than I ever expected. I’m holding on to the hope that the second trimester I will have more energy and less sickness – this is what the books tell me! The crazy thing is that this Friday I start my second trimester!!! They grow up fast! Baby bean is only about three inches but I already feel huge and maternity pants are more comfortable than my regular jeans… I just have to say thank the Lord I get to wear scrubs to work! I’ll have lots of room in those for a while yet.

Christmas was a lot of fun – really great to see both of our families. I feel really blessed that we get along so well with the “in-laws.”

I am very excited about new years….however, there will be several best pals who will be greatly missed…

Bring it on 2009, I’m ready for ya!


  1. Hey, dear! The 2nd was definitely better with Merrick, almost overnight I had more energy and felt more like a human. haha. I'm holding onto hope that is is that way this time around and that you will have the same luck. Everyone always says the 2nd trimester is the best one. (IT's because you aren't huge yet, but you're over that hump in the beginning that is so hard.) Hang in there! You're doing a great job growing a gorgeous new Strosnider. I love you and I'm so proud! :)

  2. yay for the 2nd trimester!! here's to hoping you'll be feeling much better and more energetic! thanks for calling me on new year's eve. it made me sad that i wasn't there with you guys. WOW what a difference a year makes huh? look where we were last new years!! but changes are good. MAYBE we will be there next year for new years?? :) i love you best pal!
