Breaking News.....

Here's a sure fire way to get the news spread:

My dad is getting married. In January. To his longtime girlfriend, Margaret. It's kind of weird to think that the two families will be joined, and that I'll have 3 "step brothers" whom I don't even know. I hope my dad tells them I'm pretty much MIA all the time. I'm happy for them, and looking forward to seeing everyone in the new year. Oh.....that also means I'll finally get to meet my newest brother in law and nephew. Can't wait.

Congrats to your Dad. Selfish I know... but does that maybe mean you might come this way?

My dad got remarried three years ago and I gained four new sisters whom I had never met. All worked out well and I love my extended family. If you want to discuss, just let me know. I totally get it.

Also, Panera Bread is fabulous. Their french onion soup in a sourdough bread bowl is to die for! I wish we had one here!

I found your blog through Carrie and you crack me up. I have fraternal twins and some of your previous post are exactly what my twins have done... EXACTLY... I'm glad I'm not the only one. I would tell some of my friend/family things that they have done and I'd get, "I don't remember my kids ever doing that" I thought my kids were the only ones and there was something wrong with me... I feel for you. :)

In some ways it gets better and in others worse. I think my favorite time was when they were 0-12 months but then I hardly remember those first 3 months because they were just INSANE... Once they become mobil I think that's when it gets hard. I'm just hoping it gets easier too... :)

Wishing your whole family a happy new begining. It's kinda fun to read that someone found others through me! Of course that is how we find each other in this blogging world, huh?! :-)

Wow, Rachelle said they were getting to talking about it, but I didn't think he would actually do it. So will you be in Utah for the New Year.

We too are getting a Panera Bread store. I can't wait till it is open. I'm going for a "you pick two" soup and tomato and motz salad. Love that place...
