Super huge update

Such blog neglect happening this year! I need to do a better job to document everything so I can turn my blog into a kind of family yearbook.

Our family blog hasn’t been updated in forever! I’m so behind.

We have been getting used to being a family of four & absolutely love it!! I have also enjoyed my time at home with the kids (I wrote kids!!!! Eek! I still cannot believe she’s home & she’s ours!! 🙂 ). Lily is the perfect fit for our family. She is a cuddly little love bug.
