    I married on Myrtle Beach this past weekend to Wendy and her 3 kids. Tony is the oldest at 13. We call him oreo because he's black on the outside but white as can be on the inside. I swear this kid is country as can be lol. Then there is Jordan who is 9. Then Cailee, she's 6. I'm wrapped around her finger like crazy. I've really had to step up and be a father that none of em have never had. Tony's dad killed himself when he was 3, and the other 2 their dad is as worthless as they come. Anyway, here's the official wedding picture...

    As for the house, kinda did it all at once, wasn't anticipating finding a house this soon but I ran across a foreclosure that was perfect for the new family. Built in 2006, 4 bedroom 2.5 bathroom with a man cave. 2,400 sq foot. Appraised for $190,000 and got it for $124,500. This was a once in a lifetime deal I thought so I jumped on it. Love having a house big enough for everyone to have room and be comfortable. I should be lurking more in the "Home Improvement" thread more often now. Don't that Taco look sexy in the driveway?!

    Way to step up, congrats to all of you, mainly to the kids for finally having a decent man in their life. Huge props

    Just noticed, you and Tony look pretty damn similar
