merry christmas!

So thankful for what we celebrate today! That years ago, God set his "Great Rescue Plan" into motion! (As the Jesus Storybook Bible puts it). True love really was born in a stable.

"Then the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.'" - Luke 2:10-11

our new reality.

So, Jordan and I both have a little OCD when it comes to keeping things semi picked up and pulled together at our house.  Yes, we skip a few days here and there.  And our tubs aren't always scrubbed and the kitchen floor isn't mopped daily.  But, everything kinda has it's place and we both like for things to be put away.

Well....that is no longer our reality.

So, here's keeping it real.  A little video.  Just so I can remember what this has been like.  (And, the video cuts off at the end without me getting to the living room.  Which was one of the best parts.  But, I didn't have time to redo it.  It was time to feed the babies :))

goin' with it.

Okay, so I've totally made this whole blogging thing a whole lot more difficult than I ever intended it to be.  I used to blog consistently.  And then I fell off the bandwagon.  But, I realized, I put all of this pressure on myself and that's when I stopped blogging consistently.  I decided that every post had to be long and well thought out.  That it had to have pictures, but not just any pictures, they needed to be good pictures.  That I took the time to edit and make collages and all of that.  And if I didn't have time to blog something, I would just stop altogether because I didn't want to post things out of order.

And now, I'm behind.  I meant to blog the whole time the boys were in the NICU because there are so many things that I want to remember.  So many feelings.  So many funny stories. So many hard stories.  But I felt behind. 

And then we got home and I wanted to blog about random things.  Funny pictures.  Favorite things.  Just little happy moments.  But, I felt behind.  I hadn't even posted pictures of them coming home (in their HUGE newborn, Feltman Brothers outfits!).  So surely I couldn't post a picture of the Christmas card.  Or tell a story about the chaos that has ensued since we've been home.  

So I've just fallen further and further behind.  Not having time to do a long, picture-filled post.  So just not blogging at all.  But I feel like I'm going to miss this.  I want to record it.  I want to remember how unproductive some days feel and how sometimes I don't shower for days (4 is a new low for me.  Gross.  Before Crews and Tate, I had a hard time only taking one shower in 24 hours.  Needless to say, hats have become my best friend.).  Or how much fun it is to snuggle with my boys.  Or a video of them trying to eat each other.

So, you know what?

I'm picking up today.  Hopefully I'll get around to posting pictures of the boys coming home.  And tell you about how it was while the boys were in the NICU.  But until I do get around to about a random picture of my new favorite coffee creamer?   I'm super excited about it!  You should definitely try it :)

Happy Friday!
