A dear friend asked me for updates about my kiddos, and seeing as how I have been so lousy at updating my blog lately, I realized that I owed her (as well as you) a few glimpses as to what my kiddos are doing. So here you go, copied and pasted from the email (with a few names changed to protect the innocent). :)

The kids are fabulous. Meg is into dressing up. She had 17 wardrobe changes on Christmas day and could barely contain her excitement at receiving a new Ariel dress-up costume as well as princess pjs (which totally count as dress-up clothes in her mind). I must tell you, we were kidding Jordan about needing to get married and give Meg some cousins. Jordan asked Meg who he should marry, and without hesitation, she said, "(name of J's latest lady friend whom we all instantly fell in love with and had our hearts crushed when it ended and are all still secretly hoping will re-kindle)." Just like it was common knowledge or a done deal! So we'll give her points for that one! Bless her heart, though, later that night she asked Jordan to marry her. She made him have a pretend wedding ceremony with her two times. (I guess the second was to make it stick). Then later that night she came to me very worried that Jordan had already married (former lady friend). She was so very concerned that her chances with Jobo had vanished forever. It was almost like a sigh of relief came over her when I assured her that Jordan was still, in fact, quite single. Sweet thing! :)

And my dear Eli...he's still such a momma's boy. He buries his head in my neck every time another mommy smiles at him. I cherish it...every moment. He's quite the toddler these days...a little weeble-wobble with every step. It makes me so sad. I cried the other day when he toddled into the laundry room and started helping me load the dryer. The fact that my baby was able to load the dryer was almost too much!

Ahhhhh...and sweet Ben. Where to begin with my sweetheart. He is as sweet as he is sour. (But we'll just concentrate on the sweet)! We were watching a Disney cartoon the other night and when it came to a sad part he snuggled up to me and said, "Don't worry, mommy, I'll protect you. It's okay." My little hero! He takes such pride in chivalry and taking care of his brother and sister.

I promise to try to keep the blog more up to date. I'm so very thankful that my little business has catapulted to a new level...I've recently been asked to do some custom logo/new business start up design (can't wait to share with you a new local business that I am soooo excited about), as well as custom t-shirt design among other things, and most excitingly wedding stationary design!!! (Have I publicly congratulated my sweet Lulu on her new engagement??? If not, remind me later to share all the great news!) I have customers from coast to coast and all area in between. All that to say that, my blog has taken a back seat for a while. But I am now resolved to keep it up and make it better than ever! Thanks for wanting to keep up with us! It's a wonderful life!!!
