  • Took our  6 month old daughters on an 11 hour international flight to visit their family in Israel(many of you are still in awe of that).

    What an amazing year. Isn’t it weird to see pictures of the babies when they were so tiny? I can hardly remember what my life was like before my twins came along.

    May 2009 bring you continues blessings! Happy New Year!
