My mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer recently and we are just focusing on spending time with family and laying low. I actually spent the day with my mom at the hospital today as she recovered from a gall bladder surgery. I left before my babies woke up and rushed out at the crack of dawn to drive alongside all the road-weary working folks. It was nice to spend the day with my mom - but my empty arms were a little unsure to do with their new-found freedom! After a long day away from my kids, I cannot even believe how much I missed them. I have a trip in April that will take me away from them for 2 nights. I'm probably going to end up walking home from Boston just to hug them...I don't think I'll survive!!
Here is a cool picture of almost our entire family taken at the twins baptism last month. We are only missing 4 immediate family members in this photo (my oldest brother and his family)! Everyone directed their attention to the "real" photographer while a friend snapped photos with my camera. I need to get my hands on the real photos!
