Feb 2006 John and I moved to Winter Haven, FL.  It's so wonderful here!  Lots of things to do!! (not like back home)  I have since had a 2nd daughter -- Annaliese.  Azlynn is 28 months now and growing like a weed!  Annaliese is 6 months old now and starting to pull (she's been crawling for over a month now...how time flies).  Annaliese was born 9-21-05 at 7:52 AM by c-section (only because I had a c-sec with Azzy)...so yeah I got to evacuate my entire family (plus 3 dogs and a ferret) with a newborn after a c-section LOL.  Let me tell ya, FUN.  At least we came out of the storm with a new outlook on life and a house that was still standing... That's more than some can say.  I also was wondering if we were going to have a 5 year reunion (man that makes me feel old)?  Let me know so I can plan to come down!

Hey everyone! It’s hard to believe that we’ve been out of school for almost 7 years. I married on March 07, 2008 to a guy from HF and have 2 beautiful children – Nathaniel who is 6 (born Nov. 01) and Haylee who is 2 months old (born just after Christmas 07). We just recently bought a house in the Groves area. I work for a company called GTPA in Nederland as a Care Contact Assistant. My job is to follow up with our patients and see how they are doing post hospital / ER / ED, etc. It’s a very rewarding job and I love it. I am proud to say that the company I work for supports troops in Iraq and we send them care packages! My spare time is taken up with Tee Ball, a newborn, and keeping the household organized. On the weekends, we often head up to the lake or the countryside to fish or hunt. Feel free to contact me. I’d love to hear from any and every one!

Occupation: After I graduated, I worked for Bruce's Market Basket for about 2 more years. Then I decided to move om to another job. I worked at St. Mary's for a year. Then I moved to Georgia in 2004 to help with a church there with my family. My family and I (meaning my parents and siblings) stayed in Georgia for 2 years. However, I stayed because of my job as I was working for another hospital named Medical College of Georgia Hospital. MCGHI for short. I was there one year after my parents moved to Ohio 2006. My brother and sisters moved there with them. Then in October of 2007 I had opportunity to go to college for a semester. So in Jan. of this year I went to Liberty University in Lynchburg,VA. It was cool to experience college for a semester. I know live in Ohio, I decide to go to school up here in so I can be closer to my extend family and Grandpa. My grandma went Home to Heaven on May 16th of this year. We are doing good, my grandpa needs some prayers said. But he is doing better. I know 100% beond a shadow of a doubt that she is in HEAVEN. Well that is about it, I am not married yet but hope to be someday. I hope that the 5 year reunion has not passed yet but I think it has. I hope I can make the next one. If you email me, let me know in the subject area that you are from the class of 2001. So I don'delete it.
