Time to Blog....

I really can't believe that I'm starting a blog. This is something that I have put off for awhile. People asked me to when the girls were born but who has time to write a blog with newborn twins?? Not me!!! Hats off to all the moms that can or did. Life with twins is a "little" easier now so I'm going to attempt to do this!
The main reason I have put this off is really simple! I don't want to be "one of those people". You know the ones I'm referring to….the ones that tell you every little detail of their life. You find yourself reading it and wondering..."Why Am I Reading This???" or “Whose life is more boring theirs or mine?” That's the kind of blog that I don't want to write. I really just thought I would do this to help our friends and family that don't see us too often, keep up with what's going on with the Shackelfords.
I had the hardest time coming up with a title. I tried about 10 that were already taken. So, I decided to go with the second thing Jeff said when we found out we were having twins. The first is not repeatable! I'll never forget that nurse saying, "Are you ready for this? You're having twins!!!" So many thoughts ran through my head. Mainly, how incredibly blessed we were that God was going to give us TWO BABIES!!! Then, I just started thinking about telling our parents, family, and friends. husband blurts out..."We're gonna need a minivan!!" That's such a Jeff thing to say! Well, we didn't get a minivan (thank goodness) but we did have the two most beautiful babies in the world. They are growing so fast and time seems to be going by too quickly. I can’t believe it’s almost been a year!

But anyway… here goes....I’m going to try to update this as much as I can and maybe this won’t be my last post!



Jenni! I'm the first to comment! I'm so glad you are starting a blog!! I've wanted to see those sweet girls so much!! I hope you guys are doing great and please tell Jeff hey from Ash!
Love, Joy
