12 Days of Christmas Giveaways: Day Three

I plan on sprinkling in a few FVL items into the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways.
For Day Three....I'm excited to giveaway a winter mustard Keep Calm Necklace.


This is a phrase I have been repeating in my head a few times a day since adding two babies to our family!

Leave a comment here for one entry.
Become a follower of FVL for a second entry.
Share on Twitter for a third entry!

A list of winners will be posted after Christmas for all the goodies.

And for your viewing pleasure....

 Sweet baby fists of little mister!
He continues to do so well. On a schedule. Eating well and gaining weight.

Little Miss has had all her doctor appointments. She needs surgery for her SB related condition.
I will be her momma during that surgery. Inpatient hospital stay for 3-5 days in January.
We have finally gotten her on a nap schedule as of today and she is a very happy girl.

Kaia and Blake are settling in with babies, feedings, crying, bath times, and playtime.
Each day we are falling into a better routine.
OH...and we have eaten dinners at home every night this week.
That is huge for our family.
I love it.

AND....we would be so remiss if we didn't thank everyone EVERYONE who has helped us.
We couldn't do this....two babies...without help.
We have received dinners, donations, baby items, phone calls, extra sets of hands, more donations, more baby items, more extra sets of hands and we are so thankful.
