I Did It!










I did something I thought I would NEVER do....I have now created a blog. I have done this mainly to keep more connected with my family out in AZ. Also so my sister Maria does not have to keep shouldering the burden of keeping people updated on us. But for anyone else that has stumbled onto my page "Welcome!"; pull up a chair, kick up your feet, and be updated on the lives of the Calderon's. =) I can not promise to be a faithful blogger, nor an interesting blogger but I shall do my best.
To get everyone up to speed......I used to be Stephanie Daniels but now I am Stephanie Calderon. I have been married for about 3 1/2 years to Mr. Miguel Calderon whom I love dearly. God knew what He was doing when He put us together. (I can see my Ohio family gagging right now and my AZ family asking themselves if I am I am talking about the same baby brother they know) So to my Ohio family allow me my gushy moment and to my AZ family, yep he turned out pretty wonderful.








I am also now the mother of the most beautiful girl, Adaliah Ruth who just turned one on Jan. 2, 2010. She brings joy and wonder into the most ordinary day and she inspires me to want to be better....a better Christian, a better person because I now have a little miracle that is watching me and I am responsible for. I am very blessed! Miguel works nights at AAP in St. Mary's, Ohio and I am still teaching part time for ATM Education and Vantage Career Center. My dear mother watches Adaliah for us when we are working at the same time. Who better than my own mom to watch little Addie for us seeing how she raised 7 kids of her own and has babysat for years, but it is still hard on me to leave my little one.
We ( and I am using that term a bit loosely seeing how it is mainly Miguel) are working on our 100 year old farm house. That takes a lot of our time and $$! I love my house though and it is going to be worth it in the end. We are attending Bro. Ray Erickson's church in Blufton, Ohio. We spend a lot of time with my family eating, laughing, and having a good time. We have two Boston Terriers and currently just one cat....much to Miguel's dismay.










That is about all of can think of to catch everyone up on the Buckeye Calderon's. I hope to have something wonderfully exciting to post soon. Hopefully not TOO exciting though! =) God's blessings on each of you who read this. Have a wonderful day!

  12. Hi Stephanie and Miguel,

    Enjoy your post. Like the house pics, you guys have done such an amazing job. I have to say I am proud of Miguel, he was not ever the builder/ fixer type. He has come such a long way thanks to you :) Give that sweet girl of yours lots of xoxoxo from the LeFebvres! God Bless!
