Welcome to our family's little corner of the web. On our site, I'd like to introduce you to our family and share some of our interests with you.
My name is Denise and I will be your guide throughout our site. I am a SAHM and I take care of my friend's little girl along with my three girls. I previously worked for 7 years as the office manager and auto damage appraiser for Apple Autobody and am currently working there again a few hours a week as an auto damage appraiser. I also have a BS degree in Early Childhood Education and I worked for 6 years teaching in a preschool.
My husband's name is Buddy and we have been married since 1991. He is a programmer/analyst at NeuroMetrix, a company which developed and sells a medical device for non-invasive testing of Median Nerve Entrapment (Carpel Tunnel Syndrome) and other similar conditions.
Our first baby, Zachary Michael, was stillborn on July 26, 1999. Since his birth, we have become involved in promoting pregnancy loss awareness and support. On August 18, 2000 our twin girls Amanda Michelle and Krysta Marie, were born healthy and screaming! Our fourth baby, Jessica Morgan, arrived on July 10, 2003.
In addition to pages for our children, we've designed some pages that reflect our interests and hobbies, including dragons, Star Trek and STYX.
I designed this page and the Dragon, STYX, Star Trek and Pregnancy Loss pages from scratch while taking a Creating Web Pages online course at EducationToGo. Zachary and Amanda & Krysta's Pages were designed previously using Microsoft FrontPage.
I have also taken a Web Graphics class and have created some graphics for web sites I have designed and others just for fun! Please visit Denise's Designs if you'd like to take a look at them.
I am currently taking additional online classes at LVS Online. I have taken a series on learning about Paint Shop Pro 8 and am now taking one on Digital Scrapbooking - my newest obsession! You can see what I've been doing in my classes at my homework site. I will be adding a section to our site to display my layouts at some point.
Thanks for visiting and we hope you find some interesting or helpful information on our site.
On Zachary's site you'll find links to web sites for pregnancy loss support, poems I've found that convey the feelings associated with losing a child, links to sites for other angel babies as well as his story, pictures of our angel, pictures of his garden and birthday celebrations.
Amanda and Krysta's site includes pictures (lots and lots of pictures!) of them as they've grown over the last 2 years, links to sites I've found on pregnancy and raising twins as well as email updates I sent to friends and family throughout my pregnancy about how the girls were doing and also pictures from our many ultrasounds.
I have just started a site for Jessica with pictures, a link to our PictureTrail albums, ultrasound pics, her hospital picture and birth announcement.
Below is a link to our PictureTrail account (it will open in a new window) which has several albums of pictures of the girls. I hope you enjoy looking at them!
The links below will bring you to pages about some of our interests and hobbies:
