They are finally here!!!

I've been slacking on my blog. I really need to post more often but I forget and get busy with other things in life, like.....Scouts, physical therapy, work, family.
My sister-in-law, Carrie, just gave birth this afternoon to twin boys, James and William. James was 6 lbs. and 9 oz. and William was 4 lbs. and 11 oz. Steve and I just tripled the amount of nephews we have on his side of the family. We went from only Daniel to Daniel and his two baby brothers. My mother-in-law and Father-in-law, Dale and Babara, just doubled the amount of grandkids they currently have. I am so excited for Carrie and Tim. Carrie and the boys should be home in time for us to see them on Thanksgiving. Steven and I decided to split our time spending Thanksgiving with family in three. Last year we spent with my family, this year with Tim and Carrie and next year with Steve's parents. That way Hunter will get a chance to go to a different place every time we have him for Thanksgiving. We get Hunter for Thanksgiving on the years that end in an even number.
I can't wait to go up for Thanksgiving and be able to see the babies. There will be so many people there that it may be difficult to be able to spend a lot of time with either of them. The twins are doing very well and within a few hours of being born were in the room with Carrie and she was trying to breastfeed them. I am so thankful that they arrived before we got up there and that both of them are healthy.
Now....I wonder who will be the next couple to have a child. On my side of the family I have a divorced sister who is not planning on any more kids right now, a sister-in-law who has had a hysterectomy and a sister-in-law that is done having kids. On Steve's side of the family he has another sister who is currently not planning on having any kids, but his younger brother and his wife are probably going to start trying soon.
So...unless Steve and I are next my guess would be Brad and Camille will be the next to have a kid.
