I thought I'd share some photos.

Here is my immediate family.  First is my baby sister Tayler, known as Aunt Lumpy to her nieces and nephew.  My Dad always called her Lumpy when she was a baby and the name stuck with her.  She's not a baby, as you can see, but she will always be my baby sister.  My parents, Tammy and Mark.  This was at their 30th anniversary party!  My mom has the biggest heart of anyone I know.  I'm a major Daddy's girl, but in a good way, not a spoiled brat kind of way.  My mom says my dad and I have our own language.  We have a lot of inside jokes and like the same stuff so we can just look at each other and start laughing.  The last one on the right is my older sister, Casserly.  Casserly is my grandma's (my dad's mom) maiden name.  She is the oldest of all the grandchildren on my dad's side so was the lucky one to get the hand-me-down name.  I'm the middle child and the only brunette.  My sisters used to tell me she I was adopted, which is silly because I look just like my dad...I think they're adopted...

My dad is an amateur photographer so he's always the one behind the camera.  We don't have many pictures of him with us, but a lot of pictures of us taken by him.  And yes, even though I'm the middle child, I'm the tallest.

Here are my two most favorite guys in the whole world.  Here Landon had just turned 3.  He'll be 4 in May.  This was taken at my cousin's wedding, along with the one above.

This is AJ and I at an Iowa Hawkeyes football game!  AJ and his dad have season tickets.  They're pretty amped about Hawkeye football, well except last season, but I get to use his dad's ticket on one game a year.

Oh, what a big schweetie!  Here is Titan.  He was just a year old in this picture.  Have you ever seen a more handsome fella?!  He makes my heart melt.

This is my cousin Danni, from my mom's side.  She's in the Air Force, living overseas in Germany, however, she volunteered to be deployed and is currently stationed in Khandahar fighting the good fight.  She can't ever tell me what her job is though because it's top secret!  I'm so jealous of her for that.  I wish I could use that excuse when people asked me what I did for a living.  "Sorry, I can't divulge that information.  It's classified."  Awesome!  Plus, Danni and I are Facebook official...sisters, that is.

And here is the cover art for Evol!  In case you're wondering, no that is not my hand.  That's my editor, Rebecca's hand and her boyfriends.  She was such a doll for snapping this pic for me and editing it to make it all fancy like.  It's all very exciting.

More to come!
