Isn't it great when you find something that you're not really looking for, especially when that something is super awesome. Like a super awesome friend.
Not too long ago I met a new friend, Shannon through blogging (she was the one that knew my step-sister in real life and through her we had met through blogging somehow...crazy.) Anyway, she is definitely super awesome. She has a daughter who is almost exactly Alexa's age and twins (boy and girl) who are just a little bit younger than Braden. Perfect? I think so. The girls get along so well (which is a huge relief considering that doesn't happen all the time.) It gets a little crazy with the five kids all together but it's so fun. And to top the whole thing off Shannon and I get along great too, it's so nice to have another young Mama who understands you and can sit and chat for hours even over the sound of 5 little kids yelling. She's super cool and is pretty much my new best friend...whether she likes it or not. :)
Here are her twins, are they not so adorable!?
And Braden is like, "Wait a minute, there's two of them?" Or maybe he was thinking, "Hey, I never once took a bottle for my mom, but watch me take theirs, won't she be surprised."
