Giving up on Blogging!!

Ok - I am not good at this and I never have time to get on here. I had good intentions, but that went out the window. And, quite frankly, my life is just too darn boring to have anything exciting to put on here. So, unless I can come up with something good in the next few weeks, I will not be posting. I will keep it open though because I love to stalk other people :)!!

** OOOOHHHH by the way Miss Olivia - if you go private, add me to the list. I love reading all the cute stuff you put on your blog.

New Job!!

Started my new job as a Speech Therapist!! Brain is on overload. Any of you bloggers out there that have great therapy ideas or know of something that might have worked with your children when they were in speech, send them my way!!! If you know of any good resources - books, websites, cards, etc., please let me know what you like. As a new therapist, I feel like all my therapy sessions need to be over-the-top and the the best session ever!! Sometimes they don't quite work out as well as I had them planned in my head. Thanks for any help or advice.

Christmas Card 2010

For those that I do not have on my address list or those in Dubai that I don't have an address for and would have had to mail it out way in advance, here is the 2010 Christmas Card. For 13 years we have been doing a card and honestly I can't believe I have kept it up. We almost did not make it this year - too much going on and I almost put it on the back-burner. Thanks to my sis-in-law for taking our photo. She helped us make it possible and thanks to talented people on Etsy that know how to use photoshop and designed me a card. HERE IT IS - hope everyone had a great holiday season.

New Year - New Start

I love looking at and reading all my friend's blogs. I started this same process years ago, got into school and forgot all about it. My plan this year is to try to post to my blog at least once a month. My parent's plan on getting me a new camera for a graduation present, so hopefully I will remember to take lots of photos to document all the great things we do and have in our life.

I also hope to make better connections with friends and family this year. I often let the craziness of our life get in the way of things that really matter. We lost a dear friend this past week and it hits home how short life really is. He will be dearly missed. He was a true example of a true friend, and we hope to carry on his legacy.

I am grateful for all the many blessings in my life. Let's make 2011 a GrEaT OnE!!!

I have been wondering how people got cute designs or words on their photos ---- WELL, I figured it out today!! (Steph - you could have told me about this sooner). So, I can't wait to try it out with the new soccer photos of the girls.

My washer kicked the bucket!!

After having a washer for 11 years and using it daily(sometimes washing the same load three times cuz I forgot it), it decided to kick the bucket. I can't believe it did this to me:) I wanted it to hold out until November for the Black Friday sale. I know it had been making some funny noises, but I was hoping for a miracle. I was at Super Saturday all day and came home to a house that smelt like something was on fire. Thank goodness it was not cause Randy can't smell and my house probably would have been on fire before he noticed. In the market for a front loader now. ANY ADVICE?

First Day of School

McKay - 4th grade Madison - 7th grade

I am happy and sad today with my girls starting school. This is the first time since McKay started kindergarten that I have not worked at the school with her. It was so sad to drop her off knowing that I am not there to go check on her, or her knowing she can't come by and see me if she needs something during the day. I secretly cried after I left her there at a brand new school not knowing anyone. I was not worried about Madison at all because she has several friends there with her and was sooooo excited to start today. I was excited because she was so excited. She even rode the bus which was out of my comfort zone. I hope it is a good day for them both!!! We will see how the day went when they get home :)
