Hi Everyone! Ben has commented on my lack of posting lately, so he decided to take matters into his own hands and write up a post for us before we head to the hospital. Thank you all for the prayers and well wishes, we'll make sure to get pics posted ASAP!
It’s the last few hours before Samuel and Violet grace this world with their presence…Sarah (Amanda’s twin sis) is cooking breakfast and it can be smelled all throughout the house. Poor Amanda probably can smell it upstairs and since she has to have an empty stomach, it’s got to be rough. Man, breakfast smells so good. I still can’t believe we’re having twins. The funny thing is, when I was a small boy, I prayed to God that he would let me have twins when I was old enough. When I told Amanda that she responded with, “what, are you serious?” I must say I have been pretty lucky through this pregnancy. No late night driving for cravings except for one trip to Carousels for a hot fudge sundae with no whip cream. Uh oh, Amanda just said “ok, one hour and fifteen minutes before we have to go.” I better wrap this up.
This is really cool. I know there are tons of twins in this world but how many of us can say “I have twins.” To top it all off, this house is going to be stacked with guns. Unfortunately yes, some of them will probably be pink. I can’t wait to go buy two little “Anne Oakley” .22 rifles. Right now I’m looking at a couple of Ruger 10-22s. But since those individually cost more than mine, they will probably only get the Wal-Mart special’s. Oh, and a pair of 50cc dirt bikes will look cool in the garage. I can’t wait.
I love and miss all you guys. I am so happy Amanda and I are about to be parents. This is going to be great and so memorable. I love you Amanda, thank you for making these last 9 months so easy on me.
