We're up and running!
Here ye! Here ye! The Griffin & Co. blog has officially been established. I am very excited to have an outlet to share updates, pictures, humorous happenings, etc. about our family. I am not as excited that the reason I finally found time to do this was because I was blessed with the stomach flu all weekend. So, my dear husband and handsome son spent the weekend at Meme & Pops' and let me suffer with the animals. Thankfully, overall I am finally feeling a little better and am using this blog as a means to think about something else besides how sad I am without my Mommy-and-Griffin weekend time. Seeings as how I did not take the time to start this blog until Griffin was almost 17 months old, my first few postings are going to be back-dated as I feel that it would be an extreme injustice to you if you should miss out on some great photos/stories. So, please bare with me as I try to catch you up to present day.
Daddy Mitch works as a control room operator at Gerald Gentleman Station powerplant outside of Sutherland. Mommy Tara works as a doctor of physical therapy at Ogallala Community Hospital. We have been married for 6 wonderful years. In August 2007 we were blessed with the birth of our twins Griffin David and Elliot Dawn. Elliot's fate was to live among the angels. Her passing left a hold in our hearts which can never be filled. We love her dearly and miss her everyday. Our little man, Griffin, is a living miracle as a happy and healthy baby-going-on-toddler. He entertains us constantly and fills our lives with unending love and memories. Kaizer, our 11 year old cocker spaniel, was our first "kid" and takes every opportunity he can to remind us of that! Anniebelle is a 5 year old cat who adopted us one cold winter afternoon 3 years ago. She will win over anyone's heart, even those who didn't think that they liked cats!
