The Great Baby Reunion

For those of you that haven't yet seen it, here's a link to the story that KOMO 4 (the Seattle ABC station) did when Madison, Victoria and I returned home from Indiana:

Kirkland family welcomes two sets of twins

What a great gift!

Our friend Jenni shared our story with Kelly Chandler Photography whom she had used for her wedding photos. Kelly was so touched by our story that she offered to do a free photo shoot for us! You can see part of the amazing results below. Kelly was so great to work with and was well equipped to handle even our large family at her studio. We would highly recommend her for your family photos!

4th of July cuteness

Ok- now that I can update the blog via text, hopefully we will keep it more updated! We are super busy with babies and still working on getting more sleep so sorry for the long delay in updating. For the 4th, we took some pics at home, our good friends the Pennebakers hung out & brought yummy pulled pork for dinner & then we watched the fireworks on tv. It was a good one - yay for the babies 1st 4th of July!

Blogging via Text Message!

Ok, it's really a multimedia message. At any rate, Brian helped me figure out how I can update our blog via text message, so hopefully that will make it easier to keep you all up to date on how the babies are doing. I often send out some daily pictures via text message when I'm up feeding the babies at night. Look for some new pics soon!

Our Southwest Story

Part of our journey home from Indiana was made so much easier by Southwest Airlines. Here is a snippet of how it all happened:

When I opened a Customer e-mail from Julie Baker, I had no idea of the events that would unfold over the next week.  Julie, Brian’s mom, described the impending birth of her grandchildren as “unique and rather amazing.”  Reading on, my heart stopped when I read, “My son and his wife, who live in Seattle, WA, are expecting their first babies, two sets of twins, any day now.”
