Ok, I will be honest. I would be MIA until both were in Kdg. The time goes so fast! I suppose when they are sleeping you could sneak in a card or two. They are both adorable! And they look so happy! You are sure doing something right! Thanks for the chance to win some dies! They are my favorite thing right now.

TheDuosclickinmom said...

Make no apologies for choosing family over blogging. Family first. Children grow oh so quickly & even though we try to capture every fleeting moment we can through photos and memory keeping, so many moments only happen once.

Vicki Dutcher said...

Looks like a good darn excuse for MIA to me! Could be that I am very forgiving because I, too, was MIA for awhile. For the same excuse! :D
Thanks for the chance to win some goodies! Your kids are adorable! Enjoy them, because they grow sooo fast--my babies are turning 16 (twins) and my little princess is 4 going on 20! But I wouldn't trade them for the world!

You little ones are so cute. I am in my Nana years now and I have to tell ya how much I miss just being a mom day to day with my little ones around me. It is a blessing that will abide with me forever to have raised three fine children into loving, caring adults.
