• Christmas Blizzard 2016

    We had a great Christmas weekend.  We went to an annual Christmas party at a friends house, which was a blast.  This was their 11th annual party, it just isn’t Christmas until we go.  🙂  We had our close friends over on Christmas eve to celebrate together, like we do most years.  It was fun and a great time.  By the time they were heading home that night, it had started snowing.  On Christmas day we woke up to a very white Christmas, but still had a blessed morning, opening up gifts, enjoying a breakfast casserole I put together the night before, and calling our parents to wish them a…

  • Blog photos

    I don’t have much to write about today, just a question really.  For my fellow bloggers out there, do you write blogs with out photos anymore? When blogs first started it seemed like it was more about writing than about photos.  We would add some photos here and there, but mainly we wrote about a specific subject.  I find lately that as I’m thinking about writing a blog post, if I don’t have a specific photo or photos to share, I don’t write a post.  It’s like my post won’t be read if there are no photos.  Which I guess now a days is probably true.  But when I’m slacking…

The Lord has blessed me with friends out here, some way closer than others.  I have one friend, the first I…

  • Homeschool Mother’s Journal ~ 2/24

    In my life this week…It’s been another busy week at work, but good. I’m just about done with a couple of projects and I hope things will slow down in March. I’ve also started a new workout program, well not new to me exactly, but I haven’t done this dvd in a while. I like how I feel when I do it plus adding some yoga from the Wii Fit Plus. It all really makes me a feel so much better. My cold is also gone, thankfully. In our homeschool this week…I think we have all of Paulie’s curriculum and subjects set for next year. We haven’t ordered anything yet,…
