Hey everyone

Update on the boys. Lucas has gained over 6 lbs and Jackson over 5 since we have been home. They are doing so wonderful. Now if we can get Jackson to sleep more than 2 hours straight. We got to see all the girls from work last week and it was so much fun. The boys soaked it up. Everyone was so happy to see them and it meant so much to me. I felt bad there were a few girls not there that I really wanted to see.

I am heading back to work this week and really not dealing well with it. Praying for a miracle that something happens that I can be home with these little guys. Just feel its what I should be doing. We have had one miracle after another with these 2 so who knows.

I want to say a special hello to my friend Dean who I just adore I missed you and Tom and both want you to know your in our thoughts and prayers!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We hope to have some fun videos out here of the boys for Halloween.

This was us driving through a village. The drivers really knew what they were doing and had to. Any of us back here in the US would have killed someone or something for sure. list of things we almost hit and some we did knudge a little bit
1. people
2. goats
3. donkeys
4. dogs
5. cattle

I am the queen of backseat driving so this was almost impossible for me to just shut up and ride. But i did it....
Held my breath and bit my tounge and hung on,..

The van ahead of us wasnt so lucky.. we wont go there...

Hey everyone, Tom is digging this dad thing! Never seen anyone have so much fun.
The boys both slept for 7 hrs straight last nite. We all did a happy dance this morning. I know I know it wont last but it was a nice surprise.
They are both feeling so much better. We are planning on heading up north next weekend so Grandma Bernice can meet them she has been so supportive through this we are lucky to have such a wonderful Grandma . Then we are hoping Grandma Egesdal will be here for a visit., oh boy grandmas 2 weekends in a row... can we say SPOILED!!!! These kids have some really awesom grandparents they are very very lucky. We love all of them so much and are so blessed to have so much love and support.
Nobody in toms family has gotten to meet the babies yet we are sooooo excited for her to come.
