Over 2 years and counting

It has been over 2 years since blogging became #524 on my list of things to do during the day and with Facebook, Instagram and all the apps my iPhone does, I just put blogging on the back burner.   

I have tried my best to catch up on post here and there and they are really short.  The post will consist of the pictures I took that day, a caption or two if I remember exactly what happened and a title that is so generic, I probably used it two days prior.

So much has happened since the last time I truly updated this blog on the actual day that it happened.  I mean, my sister-in-law got married (she will be celebrating her 2nd Anniversary this month), we surprised Randi with a another trip to Disney for her 3rd birthday (Randi will be 5 in 3 months), my sister moved to Rhode Island and I re-married my best friend, the love of my life, "MY STUPID" on our 10 wedding anniversary!  Oh yeah...we also had another baby!  Logan is 9 months old!

I kinda feel like a failure on documenting our life and that Logan will grow up saying  "you didn't document my life like you did with Randi.  I guess its because I was the 2nd child". 

I am a 2nd child and I never felt that way growing-up.  Maybe its because the times were different or maybe its because social media didn't exist.  When I grew up you only had your child's picture taken from Olan Mills, the local Fire Department or the Church directory.  You took pictures on birthdays, the 1st day of school and most holidays.  Film was expensive.  Parents didn't take daily pictures of their children, grandparents didn't get a video of their grandchild walking for the 1st time two minutes after it happened and you definitely couldn't Face-time your sister that lives a 13 hr drive away.  Times are different and I wouldn't change social media or the technology we have for the past. 

What I do what to change is documenting the crazy, funny, shenanigans that happen in our daily life.  Yes, I take a ton of pictures of Randi and Logan.  Yes, I put them on Facebook and Instagram, but does it really tell the entire story?  Usually no. 

My kids are crazy.  The Princess is a 4 year old that talks 100 miles a minute.  She is clumsy like her mama, loves to go to school, enjoys doing crafts and is the most beautiful little girl in the world.  The Loganator is all boy.  He is the happiest child I have every met.  He climbs on everything, eats ALL day long, has a bruise somewhere on his body 100% of the time and is going to be a heart-breaker when he grows up. 

I can't say that I will be able to update the blog everyday as my life is crazy.  I work a full-time job.  I own a photography business.  I am planning two birthday parties that are two weeks apart.  I have laundry to do.  I have a weekly meal list to plan.  I have floors that need moped.  I have a house that needs to be cleaned.  I have toys that have to be picked up.  I have a husband that travels for work all the time.  I have children that needs their mother. 

With that said, I think its time that I faced my New Years resolution and started the blogging train again.  Stay tuned for updates and don't forget to use the side bar on the right to check out old post as well.  December 2010 is when we started falling behind and I plan on having ALL pictures/post updated as quickly as I can.  I will let you all know how the progress if going along the way.
