    Hey everyone! How are you? It feels like I never left after reading all the posts!

    Sandra - your boys are so big now! Steph- Levi is as handsome as ever!

    I'm a stay at home mom now. After hiring and firing 3 different nannies; one who ignored Jonathan completely, and one who fed Chloe milk (which she's allergic too), then denied it and said she would "never try to kill your child". I had enough! So I'm on leave from my job with the feds and have opened a home daycare. So far it's great. Extremely busy, and tiring but the fact that I can give my babies the best care they need, it's so worth it.

    I was in a car accidient in May, crushed my ankle, spent a week in hospital, now have 2 plates and 12 screws in my ankle. Spent 2 months in a wheelchair, 6 weeks in a walking cast and am now almost 100% better. Still cannot run (which I miss terribly) but at least I can walk. Note to everyone: never, ever cross your legs in the passenger seat in the front. That's what I did and upon impact my ankle was crushed and we were only going 60km/per hour. If my legs were down where they were supposed to be, I'd be fine.

    Thomas and Chloe just turned 1! They are so alike but so different at the same time. I love them to pieces. Jonathan started jr. kindergarten and loves it. He had picture day today and even though we've been practicing smiling for the camera, his proofs all have him frowning, oh well!

    Glad to be back, I've missed you all :)

    I was wondering when I saw the name if it was our old friend from north of the border. Oh dear what a time you have had. Welcome back. Wow the babies are one already. Great to hear that Jonathan is doing well. Thanks for the heads up on the leg crossing point, ouch. Hopefully you will be able to run soon. Can you take up my favorite workout, rowing?

    Levi's school pictures are on next Tuesday. It should be interesting.

    Hey Roxanne- I've been wondering how you all have been doing. Can you believe our babies are's just crazy. Love your profile pic...they are adorable!

    So sorry to hear about your ankle I know you were really into running. Hopefully you'll be back out there soon, but your right at least you can walk. It must've been so hard taking care of the kids being laid up like that.

    LOL about the school pictures. Last year Ryder frowned in all of his they were so bad I didn't even buy them.. His pics are coming up soon and I really hope he smiles.

    Glad to hear your in home day care is working out. Things always work out. So good to hear from you. Hope you keep posting!! :)

    Hey Roxanne, welcome back! Sounds like things have been pretty crazy with you. Good for you for finding a way to stay home with your babies - hard to believe they are getting so big, isn't it?
