Happy 2nd Birthday Camden & Christian!

Two years ago I was nervous and excited, not a first time parent, but recognizing that twins were a completely different ball game and having really no idea what was coming- brought a mix of emotions.

As my wonderful OB pulled each boy from his home for 36 weeks 4 days and I heard their cries and subsequent "they are just great!" I never could have imagined what two years from that moment would bring.

They brought to our word a new level of exhaustion and love. A dynamic so different that you will never understand unless you have twins. A beautiful crazy life that leaves us utterly worn and desperately in love at the end of each day.

The fascination that comes with watching your children and their different personalities is only intensified when they are the exact same age.

One is social and never stops moving, saying hi to everyone and physically beyond his age in skill, yet on the tiny end of the spectrum. Small and fierce his grin and laugh are infectious. He has personality bigger than life.

The other, reserved and quiet unless he is with people he knows are safe, yet cunning and smarter than a whip. Inquisitive and caring, his deep blue eyes look into your soul and his smile is always just what I need.

Each love to be held, and watch their big brother...mimicking his every move.

The first year was really such a blur, but feels so far ago....this last year has flown and I cannot believe we are celebrating their turning two. It hardly seems possible.

I am looking forward to this next year. I love the different things with each age, but from 2 1/2 on with Jack has been a blast and so much more fun!


Happy Birthday Camden. Happy Birthday Christian,

Your lives are a testimony to God's faithfulness and healing. I love you so deeply sometimes it aches. We never call you the twins,  in fact we hardly use the term at all when talking about you. You are in fact twins, but most of all you are brothers and you are ours, lent to us by a gracious God who has more in store for you than we could possibly imagine. We pray that you love Him first and you love others, and that you know your life is not your own.
Mommy and Daddy

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
