While We Were Away

It's been a while since I've posted.

I'm now really behind...lots of pictures to edit, lots of stories to write.  Some funny, some happy, some not-so-much.  I've taken some time away from the blog in part because our computer was out-of-commission for the last couple of weeks which makes blogging impossible.  But the main reason I haven't been writing was because we started the new year off taking care of and worrying about our little Sophie.  After having to say goodbye to her on February 17th, I wasn't much up for blogging stories and family pictures.  We haven't been just sitting around; Brian and I both have jobs we had to show up for and Sam to take care of.  But things I usually enjoy, like sewing and photography and blogging, just weren't that appealing for a while. 

But we're feeling better now, and with the photos piling up and the "tales from the nest" that need to be told, I'm somewhat forcing myself to get caught up with my blogging.  I know how much everyone loves to read about Sam and watch him grow and this site has become very special to our family, so I'm not going to let it fall by the wayside!

You'll see some entries are "post-dated" just because I want to keep stories close to their original dates so that when Sam is older and reading these posts they are dated accurately, so keep checking February and March over the next few days to see new posts..  I have lots of posts coming up about what's been going on around our nest...like a certain someone turning TWO!

Enjoy our new photos and our new tales, and thanks for being patient while we were away.
