Oh, The Places You Will GO! (take 2)

My little Dr. Seuss characters!
Last March- Ken was accepted into the residency program at UTMB, Galveston, Texas. We were thrilled because this was his #1 pick and not too many people get there first choice. (I am a very proud wife- so bear with me). As most of you know we have had a crazy, eventful, blessed, challenging, year since then so I thought it only fitting to repost what I posted last year about our move! Let me recap our year for you

June- moved to Galveston, Rachel's wedding, Garrett's wedding

July- Ken on call (all month), found out I was pregnant, San Antonio trip

August- I started teaching at Oppe, found out having twins

September- 1st anniversary, HURRICANE IKE hit :(, stayed in Memphis

October- went back to Galveston, I went back to work for 2 weeks, quit, moved to Nashville

November- Ken started at Vanderbilt, I'm still pregnant with twins, Thanksgiving ( I ate alot)

December- Christmas!!

January- Memphis shower, Nashville shower, Katy visited, decorated nursery

February- GIRLS came early, c-section, 2 weeks in NICU, Ken SUPER busy at Vandy

March- Ken studying for OMSAT- big Oral surgery test (that he did AWESOME on by the way), preemies come home, sleepy mommy

April- things are calming down... there is always a calm before the storm right.

May- opportunity to return to Galveston- we take it, packing to move back to Texas

June- packing, girls almost 4 months, move on the 12th, Chicago the end of the month for me!

WHEW!!! What a year.... so...


Today is your day. You're off to Great Places! You're off and away! You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. An YOU are the girl who'll decide where you go. You'll look up and down streets. Look 'em over with care. About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there." With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street. And you may not find any you'll want to go down. In that case, of course, you'll head straight out of town. It's opener there in the wide open air. Out there things can happen and frequently do to people as brainy and footsy as you. And when things start to happen, don't worry. Don't stew. Just go right along. You'll start happening too.
-Part of Dr. Seuss's Oh the Places You Will GO!
Once again- we are just going to hold on to each other and ENJOY the ride! :)

Fun Day with the Girls! :)

Today the girls and I went to lunch with one of my sorority sisters- Rebecca. We had such a good time chatting it up. The girls loved getting out and about too! We actually ate at the Mellow Mushroom in Franklin- the last time I was there was February 14, I had the girls February 15! How funny!
Our sassy dresses given to us by special friends in Temple, Texas- see you all soon!!!

We are such HAPPY babies!!! The girls love to be sung too by mommy- I am no good- but don't tell them that!
