I have wanted to post for sometime, pretty much since the boys were born, about all we are thankful for. As I continue to procrastinate, the list gets longer and longer. It seemed fitting to finally post during this Thanksgiving holiday. Of course, I had hoped to post yesterday, but it seemed Todd and I drove all over the state to ensure that everyone in our extended family were able to spend time with the Parks and Wyatt. By the time we got them to bed, it was all I could do to get myself into bed, not to mention the fact that Todd's parents have a dial-up internet connection. We had a wonderful day, first with my family and then made the 2.5 hour drive to conclude the day with Todd's family.

For those of you who know us personally, you probably know that we are struggling with a lot of different things right now. I am currenlty unemployed, by choice, but not under the most ideal of circumstances and Todd is working hard trying to make a go of his own business. We are also considering a move to another state. The move makes sense in a lot of ways, but that doesn't make it any less stressful. The last year has been a roller coaster to say the least. I found out I was pregnant last October, was put on temporary bedrest in November, found out in February that one of our twins was struggling through the pregnancy and might not make it, was put back on bedrest in March and spent the remainder of my pregnancy in and out of the hospital until May 15th when our two beautiful boys were born. Yet, all of these struggles have given us more to be thankful for than ever. I could list every milestone, but what's most imporant is our two boys are extremely healthy and happy. The Lord continues to amazes me on a daily basis. I have never felt so blessed.

I am sorry to hear that you are going through a rough time but I am thankful that your family is doing well. You have two very handsome kids.

Randi and Todd...just wanted you to know I'm still keeping up with you and praying for you guys. I know that the 3-4 months are just a blur and the first year was, I do believe, the hardest time I've ever had. Wishing you guys lots of love, and God's peace and clarity in making the decisions you need to make. Hang in there.
