1 Year ago today....

... I became a mom of twins. This year has flown by. It feels like yesterday we were racing to the hospital (barely in time). Now my precious boys are cruising ( I expect them to take steps any day now), eating cake, babbling and growing so big. (Sigh) They are now toddlers. What happened to my babies????

It has definitely been a challenging year (they STILL don't sleep through the night :/, but I wouldn't trade being their sleep deprived mom for anything. I love how they giggle and crawl over toward the door when they hear someone come in; how they giggle at each other and their big brothers and sister; how Luke gives Nana big kisses on the cheek (not me, but Nana!) and how Caleb nuzzles up against us when he's tired.

They are so cute and we really are doubly blessed to have them!

A Day in the LIfe

Actually, just 10 minutes. These were the "interesting" comments that could be heard just a little bit ago.

1) "I can't go out to the table to eat because my leg hurts too bad. I may have to sleep here on the couch." -Now, it WAS a big scrape, but seriously?
2)"I'm going out to milk the cow." - Hmmmmm.
3) "You're ruining my life!" -Wow! Thought I had a few more yrs before I would hear this one.

The funny thing is, these three statements were made within a 10 minute time span. Random and interesting thoughts.

Now, any guesses on who said what? (Mom, you can't guess cuz I told you :)

Zac's been saying some cute stuff lately....
-In the van the other day he asked Daddy to "beep the corn".
- This morning instead of asking for a chocolate MUFFIN he asked for a chocolate
- One of my favorite things he says is " I want to hold you" when he wants me to hold him.

He's growing up so fast. I can't believe he'll be 3 in 2 months!

Happy Belated Birthday Mom!!!!

So, I forgot to post this because we were on vacation, but my Mom also just had a birthday. I am so thankful for our relationship. She has become one of my very best friends. We talk every day (usually twice a day) and she always knows when I'm a little down and need some encouragement. She has also has been using almost all of her vacation time this year to come stay with us for long weekends. She comes up to help so we can have a monthly date night or to help watch the kiddos for doctors appointments or just to be with us. I love watching her be a "Granny" to my children. She absolutely adores them (and everyone around her knows it-just ask her co-workers :)

Mom (Granny) we love you very much and we thank God that you are in our lives!

T.J. says....

Yesterday, my little reader (TJ), caught a glimpse of my Respectable Sins book on the table.  He saw the word sins, and asked me why I was reading a book to help me sin more.  After a good chuckle, i explained to him the real purpose for the book.  Too funny!

I'm so blessed to have you as my dad.  You have always been so supportive, loving and a wonderful, godly example.

I'm so happy that my children also benefit from your love and guidance.  We all hope you have a wonderful day.  We love you!!!!
