The Evolution

This blog has evolved quite a bit from it's start. Andrew and I began it together before we had children - we blogged about our work, our dog, and other things that we found amusing. And then Andrew got busy and I took over. And then the boys came along and I had less time. And then the unexpected blessing of baby #3 came and I've had even less time. Thought-provoking, conversation-starting posts have dwindled and the blog has become heavy on the kid and mom front. While I love that (and it is a wonderful and main part of my life now), I also miss the more thoughtful posts. Perhaps they will come again some time - even just occasionally. But for now, the blog is largely about the kids and motherhood with occasional personal posts about me or Andrew or my work or cooking.

Through it all, I'm so thankful to be able to share my life and joy with you, readers. Some of you have been stopping by from the start and some have joined later, some of you are friends in real life and others are friends through blogging, to all of you, I say, "thanks!"

Thank YOU, Alaina!
I love stopping by your blog and seeing your sweet boys, and hearing about what you all are up to. Blogs like yours make me feel more normal! LOL!
Rest assured there will be PLENTY of time for those thought provoking conversation starting posts when the boys are in school all day, or grown.....
Hugs, Jill

Sounds like you had sweet holiday times! Love all the pictures and love whatever you say, when you say it. :) We waved at you all in spirit as we passed thru your side of town, wheezing, sneezing and coughing all the way. I think we left the gift that keeps on giving with his folks....trust me, you should be glad we didn't bless you with our visit! :)

I love the PJ pics. My favorite always! :)
