We survived

We left the hospital yesterday afternoon. Both Gary and I were so excited to get home!!! It was hard leaving the wonderful nurses at the hospital as they were sooooo helpful. But I am feeling more and more confident on my own :)  Luckily, I have a great home support team!

We are so happy to hear all the gingerbread and chocolate love. We seriously can’t wait to make those muffins again. But they will have to wait as we have a long list of new recipes we want to make to share with you. Yes… a very long list! We’ve already been busy in the kitchen making a mess. Something we love to do. And it’s been a great distraction for us all. Plus everyone loves eating the creations we make so really it’s a win-win for everyone.

We don’t have too much updates to share with you yet in terms of baby M arrival or Michelle’s eczema/skin update. We are all praying that Friday will be the big day. Michelle learns more about her patch skin testing and hoping for some more labor progress!! Thanks as always for sending us your love and support. It really means the world to us to hear from our purely twins family.

We had a very laid back day yesterday. We were busy filming 3 new recipes :) Make sure you are subscribed to our youtube channel or sign-up for our newsletter so you never miss a recipe! Our mom has been enjoying all the baking too. Keeping ourselves busy in the kitchen is helping pass the time as both of us play the waiting game.  Lori waiting for baby M. Michelle waiting for results of her patch testing.

When we were editing this recipe video our mom kept saying she wanted some of these muffins. We sadly had to tell her we already ate them all.

But good news they are super easy to make, so come join us in the kitchen.
