AND THEY CAME TWO BY TWO ...

Jonathan and Joshua are my incredibly adorable fraternal twin boys who turned 9 on September 28.

They attend a Christian school, where they are in third grade.


Jonathan - 2nd Grade
Joshua - 2nd Grade


Hi! Now that you have met my pride and joy, I guess it's time to meet me and my hubby. My name is Karen and I'm 41. I began chatting at Parents Place in August '95 but since most of my online time is spent in toy and ebay sales, I never chat anymore. Yes, my hair is naturally curly, but just don't ask me about the natural color *LOL*. All the other really important (*haha*) stuff about me is below.

This is what I looked like when I learned I was pregnant with TWINS!! I married my wonderful husband, Glenn, in March '93. After the boys were born, I returned to my full-time job only to discover that I wanted to spend more time with Jonathan and Joshua. They were almost a year old when I finally got into a job-sharing position where I work half-time.



"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

Parents Prayer - a prayer that has a lot of meaning to me which I hope you will enjoy....and another picture of Jonathan and Joshua is here too!





More About Me...



I'm living back home with Mom. I know it sounds strange to most people, but it was part of the "plan" when I decided I wanted to work only part time so I could spend more time with the boys. It's a big help on us financially and logistically. Mom is a huge help with the cooking, cleaning, and babysitting. We have always had a great relationship and I really like living in the house where I've spent all but 7 years of my life.

My favorite past-time is playing in the sunshine with my boys, whether it be in our backyard, at a park/playgound, or at the beach! We love walking on the beach, examining what the tide brought in, swimming, and playing in the sand.

I LOVE to dance! I taught and choreographed aerobic dance at the YMCA for 10 years. I met some wonderful women (seldom was there a man in class) and it was a tough decision to finally "retire". It was certainly a load lifted from my shoulders (choreography took a lot of time), but I still miss it, especially when I hear songs to which we had dance routines. In June of 1996 I started taking step aerobics 2-3 times a week and thoroughly enjoyed it! Now that we changed gym memberships the step classes are not that great so I mostly work out at home on my elliptical stepper and treadmill.

As a youngster, I swam competitively, even at the Junior Olympics, and before the boys were born, I did a lot of fitness swimming. I still love to swim, but rarely go to the gym so I don't get much swimming in these days. Additionally, I taught swimming to all ages for 10 years at the YMCA.

I am a fanatic about garage sales; I'm out there bright and early Saturday morning getting all kinds of great bargains on toys and clothes for the boys... makes me never want to shop retail! ...and I rarely do. I even get my clothes at yard sales and thrift stores. My yard sale addiction has turned into a part time "job". I now enjoy finding great items to sell on eBay. You can see my items on auction.

Most of my online time is spent selling on Ebay and trading/selling fastfood toys.
