Ok second attempt here! Don't know why the first post didn't take. Doesn't Blogger KNOW that I have squeeze this in between feedings?!?!?! So this is my latest find on Etsy (while browsing for beads of course.) Mary from Birch Bark Beads makes these glorious little beads from rolled birch bark. LOVE them! She also has a blog. Check it out. We are doing pretty well. We met with the boy's birth parents last week. It was the first time they have seen the babies since we all left the hospital. They were so happy to spend a few hours with them. On a much less happier note, our brother-in-law lost his battle with cancer last Friday. It has been an odd year, 2011. Grandma passed away a few months ago. A friend also lost her fight with cancer and the same brother-in-law's father went on ahead about a month or so ago. It's a very curious feeling I feel about it all. Can't put my finger on it. I guess it all just makes me more aware of my own mortality and the circle of life; and how the very nature of life means that all living things are simultaniously dying also. Sorry for the downer-go by some beads!
