Twice blest…

So I have felt guilty for a while now, thinking I needed to pop on here and give some sort of valid excuse for being so bad at updating this blog. I put that thought out of my head. Then, I felt really guilty for – for the first time since I could write, as far as I know – not sending out Christmas cards this year. I swear, I’m going to send SOMETHING out. It just might be a bit after Christmas, and it might be somewhat generic. (Note to self: After thinking of this idea, it would have been wise to simply buy the materials to send out said “something” after Christmas when it is on clearance. Alas, my brain isn’t that sharp these days and I have already paid full price for the supplies. See, don’t you feel well loved now? πŸ˜‰ ).

I thought and I thought, and I put off this post for a very long time. The things I want to share are so much bigger than my words are going to do justice right now. I wanted to post just the right thing, make it either heartfelt and gut-wrenchingly emotional, or so cute you want to come right to Ohio just so you can admire my cuteness.

I put that idea out of my head, too, when I couldn’t come up with a darn thing. So that being said, I promise (and I don’t do that often!) that I will have more heartfelt, thoughtful and/or thought-provoking posts in the future. Until then, though, let me leave you with this — my “valid excuse”.

Just so you know, those feet do not belong to my children. They do not, in fact, belong to any children I know personally. My children’s feet are still somewhat webbed and just a few millimeters long, but – God willing – they will be just as cute!

That’s right, we’re expecting …. twins! Some of you know the journey we have been on thus far, many of you do not. Please continue to keep us — all 4 of us — in your thoughts and prayers. The last year has been a trying one, a devastating one, and now an incredibly joyous one…. but we are far from holding our precious miracles in our arms.

I swear, I’ll post more later. For now, Kyle is calling with dinner — and given that I’m not nauseated for the tiniest of windows right now, I should try and eat something πŸ˜‰

Take care!


  1. Oh yay – a post – and double oh yay – you’ve gone public!

    I’m pretty sure when we get to see those cute little feet they will be even more adorable!

    Enjoy Christmas Jen – it’s the last one with just you and Kyle which makes it a special one.

    So I very much like your comment about the feet … I’m pretty sure people would assume that those weren’t your kids’ feet. πŸ˜‰ Still, that’s my favorite part. πŸ™‚ Anyway, I hadn’t written on here yet, so I decided to do so. πŸ™‚

  3. This cracked me up this morning! I’m glad you finally posted πŸ™‚ Talk to you soon!
