Welcome to our family blog! We decided there is so much that we like to share with friends and family that we would create an internet diary. I'm far from a novelist, so excuse the errors and grammar.

I'm an amazing wife to Alvin Edney (his words, not mine). But he's never had another wife to compare me to :-). We were married in 1998 after dating for 4 years. Alvin and I are proud of our 2 children. Our 10 year old son is named after his daddy. We call him Edney. I started calling him Edney a few years ago because when I called "Alvin!", they would say, "I thought you were talking to him". Both pointing <- -> at the other! So I solved that problem quickly.

Ava is our 2 year old daughter and she is OUTTA CONTROL!!! She has been talking since she was 11 months. She's been trying to establish dominance since birth. And she is sassy and hilarious (her two favorite words)!

They both demand our constant attention (drama prince and princess).
We enjoy every minute of our crazy household, but I'll warn ya... YOU might wanna call before you stop by.

Edney and Ava have 2 brothers, Pitch and Apollo, who live outside. We hope you all enjoy our family journey!

HOW THIS ALL STARTED is how this all started. I've got this awesome friend and her blog has inspired me to share some of the daily activities around the Edney household. I was reluctant to let everybody know how sassy Ava is and the dilemmas Edney gets himself into, but I'm putting it all out there. It brightens my day when I read about my friend's daughter, Louisa. She is as prissy and sassy as my Ava! I laugh as she recounts Louisa's conversations or when she describes the do-it-yourself projects that she has started around her home.

Several weeks ago I started this post. I can't believe I'm really doing this. I'm a typical blog stalker...I enjoy reading (and laughing) about other families, but I never considered starting my own. But...there is always soo much going on in our home that we want to share. It's difficult to contact everyone, so we are using modern day "mass communication" to share our laughter and adventures. I'm sure my mother is shaking her head, fearful about her babies being posted on the internet. It won't be long before she accepts modern day technology, and looks forward to frequent updates about Ava's tantrums or Edney's record breaking football game.

I hope this blog will give you a peephole view of the miracles, blessings and milestones that we experience as a family. I hope this is fun for all of us....
