Big News in the New Header

...that's right! I'm pregnant! And I'm having Twins!!!

[Twins A & B at 6 weeks]

I have been bursting to tell you all! DH & I (and all the family) are so excited! We were also shocked...when the grainy ultrasound image first appeared on the screen my heart was beating so hard in my chest because I knew from the first glimpse that there were two (it is my job after all). I was in complete shock. What a blessing and what a suprise!

[Twin A at 12 weeks]

[Twin B at 12 weeks]

Hence, my recent absence. But now that the first trimester is under my belt and the nausea and constant fatigue is starting to subside...I'm two.

Where have I been???

Ok...geez...last post Aug. 30. Really? I'm ashamed.
So, my life has been crazy busy and I have something really, I mean REALLY, exciting to share with you all. However, it requires some scanning of some photos that just hasn't been done yet. Soon, promise. I am dying to tell. I need to talk about it.
It is my goal to get back into the swing of my normal life. Soon. Now.

As for what I have been family and I went to Amish Country this past weekend. It was fantastically relaxing. Ugh...too bad I have to go back to work this week, be on call this weekend and then start a month of night shifts next month (yes, the whole month). Ugh. Can't think about that now.
Lots to do this week...I'm going to make a public list here. Then each day (hold me to it you guys!) I must post about how I have completed one item on this list. If I don't, leave a comment and call me out on it! I have until next Sunday to complete this list.

The List

1. Fall decorating around the house.
2. Make curtains for my cousin Jo.
3. Embroider something with my new machine.
4. Clean my upstairs office and sewing room - get rid of stuff!!! ( sale???)
5. Complete backing for 2 separate quilts and take them to quilter.

Ok...that seems ambitious enough. More tomorrow...
