Just checking in to let you know all is well. Things got a little crazier than planned around here the past couple of months so everything I had planned for the blog got shifted to a back burner for a bit.
I’ll give you a little re-cap to fill you in:
First, Caylin was admitted into the hospital for emergency surgery for kidney stones and once I again I couldn’t be there. Poor thing had stones in both kidneys and had to have a stent placed and they used the super high-tech ultrasound that helps break them up. She still has a few in one kidney but we’re crossing our fingers that those can be passed without as many complications. She’s been a trooper and when I got to see her for Thanksgiving she was her usual bubbly self 🙂
And in between all of that Lex and I had our usual daily things like school, dentists and doctors appointments and a special trip to Ruidoso, NM with some other Army families of deployed soldiers. Between all of that and getting our hopes up that Brandon was on his way home, we’ve been pretty busy.
Now on to some exciting stuff I can let you in on: After we were told that B was on his way home, and then told no he wasn’t, they finally told us he would be home…just not exactly when. So right now we’re playing the waiting game because we now have somewhat of a date and possible timeframe of when he’ll be home. I can’t divulge that info just yet, but I can say this…it’s soon!! And we are getting so excited; to say we have butterflies and are getting giddier by the day would be an understatement. As a matter of fact my eyes are tearing up right now just thinking about it!! Just imagining them coming off the plane always gets me worked up. (I know, I’m a big mushy ball of warm fuzzies).
Also, if you follow Brandon’s blog, you’ve probably already heard about our new projects. Story Dam launched November 1st and we’ve been having a lot of fun over there with writing prompts and link ups! You can check out some of the stuff I’ve written here.
What else has been going on you ask? Well, Brandon and I have finally decided to merge our blogs! He’ll be moving all of his stuff over here over the next few weeks, and we’ll launch our new design and layout on Jan 1st! In doing this we’ll be able to bring you more content and more opportunities to get to know us better as a “Team”. Brandon’s even trying to talk me into doing more vlogs once we get it up and running, so you’ll get a chance to ‘see’ more of us too 😉 oh and we’re going to have a super cool giveaway our first week, so make sure you’ve signed up for email alerts and liked our Facebook page so you can be sure not to miss out on a chance to win!
I just want to add to, that I am so grateful to each and every one of you. I have had such an out pouring of love and support over the past few months. I honestly did not realize how much Brandon and I were loved and thought of until I started getting emails from our readers checking in to make sure everything was okay, or if the girls and I needed anything. You guys are the best, and I cannot wait to show you what we have in store for 2012 for Team Duncan!
p.s. I promise I will post here again before the holidays, because I DO have some stuff in store for last minute gift ideas and craft projects.
