Wondering why I have been MIA lately? Irish twins! I was told having Irish twins was harder than actual twins in a lot of ways. I concur (even though I haven’t experienced both). Doing it on my own has added just one more (major) element to the challenge (however never having any time to sit and relax between the 2 boys has been a great weight loss program). I’m surviving with the help of a couple great friends and my mom. I love them and don’t know what I would do without them. So just to sum up the last month and a half….
Kelli Jo and Zoey play Jr. Jazz basketball together (no pics yet)
Chris left to Abu Dhabi. Some tears were shed.
The girls wore crazy socks to school
Beckham got a bad cold (so did I)
The kids spent their first Halloween in the states and wore their costumes to school
… and their first ever trick or treating
Beckham continues to be difficult
The girls love holding Zachary
Beckham terrorizes his sisters every chance he gets
The kids spent their first Thanksgiving with family in the states and Grandpa Zollinger taught them where popcorn comes from
We go day by day, sometimes hour by hour, and sometimes even minute by minute. I know I’ll look back at these days and be able to laugh (can’t wait for that) but for now, we are surviving and doing our best.
We all miss Chris while he is away. We leave in one week to go spend a month with him and besides the dreaded flights, can’t wait!!!

Lesa – definitely a struggle with those two boys – but they are so adorable. And (you’ve heard this before from those of us whose kids are all grown and gone) – these years pass by way too quickly. xo mom b
Life by the yard is hard, but life by the inch is a cinch. You still have cute, and good kids.
