my best friend Jill just delivered her twin babies early wednesday morning. yes they were born on 12*12*12! lucky kids. the boy is Emmett Cash weighing in at 6 lbs and the sweet girl is Elsie corrine weighing in at 6.6 lbs. Jill is such a trooper and delivered easily and quickly. she is an amazing mother and seriously born to bare children. I am one proud friend!
Aren't they the cutest babies! i could snuggle them all day if i didn't have my own wild child to tend to.

family pictures 2012

here are some of our family pictures we did this year. Owen didn't want anything to do with taking pictures, so i'm surprised that we even got one decent picture of him. plus all the ducks were not helping at getting my son to look at the camera. We had so many good shots, but Owen was either screaming or totally not looking.

 because i don't have a stand and clicker i have to ask someone to take the picture with my camera and then i edit them. This year Jenny was kind enough to take on the task of snapping the pictures. A course Mads came and i just can't help but take her picture. she is SO pretty.

baby #2

So yes i am barely showing in this shot, but i love taking a picture even month of my growing bump.
Besides not showing quickly just like my first pregnancy, I also wasn't sick at all.
BUT....with a lot of similarities with both pregnancies so far, i have two very different things happening this go around.
1. my sense of smell is out of control. i smell everything to the 10th degree. sometimes and good thing, most of the other time it is  HORRIBLE thing.
2. I was diagnosed with low blood pressure this go around. which is so weird because i always have perfect pressure. But with that low pressure i get REALLY horrible head aches and dizzy/ fainting spells. not fun....not fun at all.
And my weight gain is way less, probably because of my wild child I care for :)
I just needed to record those things because i never had them with my first pregnancy. And also I love how owen totally photo bombed my picture!! Silly boy.

Thanksgiving 2012

This year Thanksgiving was spent with the Willden family. while the men went hunting in the morning I got my food/dessert ready at my parent's house. Owen LOVED playing in all the leaves at my parent's house.

 Owen was having a grumpy weird day, but he loved helping G-ma Janie make the gravy.
 Dana hosted the dinner and even cooked the Turkey and a few other food herself! and it was so delicious.

 Dana tried to make home made rolls like G-ma Karma but we couldn't get them to turn out very well. good thing we had store bought back ups.
We had a great intimate Thanksgiving with the Willden family and are so very grateful for all of our many amazing blessings.
