will be back soon

This blog will be on temporary hiatus..not for long though. Maybe the word "hiatus" sound too long..maybe a week or two. Pictures 'a'plenty are being taken of the kiddies and they'll be saved an posted soon, along with some updates. For now, James and Natalie are doing fantastic..James is going through the "terrible 2's" but it could probably be more terrible than we realize. Natalie just started sitting up with little support and she's proving why she's our little hero more and more each day.
My dad, however, passed away at some time in mid-December and I don't really have many details as to what all happened. I don't even know the exact day because we just found out yesterday if you can believe it. That probably sounds kind of bad..
He was sort of estranged but not really. We knew where he lived and we knew he lived a very low key life. The last time I spoke with him was April of 2005 to tell him I was pregnant with James. I sent him the birth announcement and that's the last bit of correspondence I myself had. For some reason we lost touch but I thought of him alot.
So, it's a rough time for me right now and for my family. We're so consumed with everything going on in our lives that we are still contacting our family one by one to tell them the news. And as of now, there's not even an obituary. :(
Again, since I'm the one that keeps this blog going..well..at least with the actual posting I'll be back soon. I have to be. Life goes on and what I would do without my babies and my husband and our family I don't even know....
See ya soon......

So sorry to hear about your father, even if it was an unusual situation I know you are hurting and I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Take as much time as you need... but not too long because I will miss the pics of your beautiful kiddos! LOL :)

Jen told me about this tonight. I'm glad you all have each other to lean on. Grieve however & whenever you need to, there is no right or wrong way, or a time limit on grieving. PP
