My sweet boys are three months old! Yesterday I went to the hospital to visit some friends who just delivered twin girls, and I cannot believe how small they are! They’re just half a pound smaller than the boys were when they were born and I was just blown away comparing how much they’ve grown… Read More TWINS- Three Months
I had a couple drafts that I planned on completing over the weekend so that I’d have some posts for the week, but they all got put on hold when my friend’s son went in for open heart surgery on Friday. Unfortunately, the procedure didn’t go as planned and we spent all weekend waiting for… Read More Perspective
What a great weekend this was! The perfect combination of getting things done, relaxing, and having some fun. Friday Once Don came home, I headed out to Hoppers in “downtown” Waynesville to meet up with some of my girlfriends. I think it’s the only bar in town?

There’s no way to even write it all down without this turning into a short novel. I think it’s appropriate that you were… Read More Elizabeth Jean: Two Years Old!!
Well, this week has started off a little crazier than expected! After ten days with my in-laws (who were more than happy to hold a baby and keep a toddler entertained), I had kind of forgotten what it was like to be on my own with the three kids. I know this is our new… Read More Blessings Amid the Chaos
I know everyone is always so surprised how quickly time passes, but I am seriously shocked that the boys are already a month old! Don and I both agreed this past weekend that it is seems so much easier than Elizabeth’s first month. Granted, my dad was here for the first 5 days, and Don… Read More Twins: One Month!
