Welcome to the Dwight and Velna Blood Family Blog

The purpose of the Dwight and Velna Blood family blog is to provide a gathering place to collect family history, photos, family news, memorabilia, and whatever else we can think of.  Let's all see where we can take it.

People like to ask us if we are getting much sleep now that the twins are home. In answer to that question, I list Exhibit A, B, and C.

No further explanation needed.

They are home!!!

Max and Matthew came home today. We didn't think it would ever actually happen, but at 6:00 tonight we brought them home. It is strange having them here without any monitors or nurses but it will be so nice to be able to see them whenever we want to. They were born three weeks ago at midnight so they spent 3 weeks in the NICU. They are doing well and are so cute! Go to our family blog for more info.

Are you ready for some football?

We are!! Go cougars and all that. What a fabulous game! And Grandpa, I appreciated your thoughts over on The Curmudgeonly Professor. But I must say that although I have become quite the football fan, I don't always understand all the rules. I discovered last night that my ten year old son knows more about football than I do. That shouldn't be terribly surprising considering he's playing his third season this year, but still. He was able to explain to his poor un-football-educated mother why and how the whole declining the penalties works. (Andrew is playing tight end this year. It's so much fun to watch!) Maybe by the time he's playing in highschool, assuming that happens, I'll actually understand the game. Oh, and did I mention...GO COUGARS!!
