ren·ais·sance [ren-uh-sahns]
– a renewal of life, vigor, interest, etc.; rebirth;

After two + years of neglect, has received a renewal of life!

The site has a new design and is now being powered by WordPress. The design is a highly modified version of the Alley Garden WordPress Theme.

Some changes are in store for the gallery as well. The album that was previous just for the boys, has been renamed to Our Family and will start to include all of our pictures (not just ones of the boys).

As part of this renaissance, I plan on posting more often and am hoping to be able to do some “catch-up” posts, that explain what we’ve been up to for the last couple of years 😉

    Shannon the new home page looks good with all the butterflies and flower’s. Reminds me of Scrapping. Scrapping : the art of putting pictures on pretty layouts using paper and other embelishments. A good hobby for all ages.

    Shannon, i am the owner of Ally Directory. We launched this garden wordpress theme few months back. Down the ages, i am yet to come across a blog who made our theme look all the more beautiful. However when i visited your blog…i was amazed at the extent a theme can be modified to look so beautiful! 🙂

    I really do appreciate your efforts! And if anytime around (in distant future) if you want to release this theme for free…then please do so. As an appreciation, even we would like to launch it and promote it with your footer links along with ours. In fact i would be obliged!

    @Gail – glad you like the new theme…and thanks for the scrapping definition 😉

    @Sharat – thanks for the compliments and for your theme! When I have some spare time, I’ll contact you about releasing my changes.

    Your new page looks beautiful. I love it. Sam and I really want to get our page up, but between diaper changes, trips to the ER, work, school, and sleep, (What little sleep we do get!) it’s so hard to find the time. I guess we’ll get it up eventually. Miss you guys.
    Sam, Kaci, Kiana, and Leland
