Fun Facts about LeAnn:
I come from a large family comprised of 20 aunts and uncles, 5 siblings, 11 nieces and nephews, and too many cousins to count!  With that history, it's only expected that I have a large family of my own.  I have 7 daughters and 1 son!  My personal family consists of biological, adopted, and step children.  My husband and I are the proud grandparents of 4 of the most beautiful grandchildren ever!  We love traveling and creating memories with our family.
