Bad Blogger

So, it’s not the end of January yet and I’ve already broken my New Year’s Resolution.  My blogging hasn’t been very fruitful.  I’ve been VERY busy!  My mother left last week and I’ve been fending for myself which is going OK, but which also means I have very little time for much else.  Thank goodness […]

Happy New Year!

2011 - I still can’t believe it. What happened to 2010? It literally just flew by. I feel like I say it every year, but each year goes by faster than the last.  I am thankful for this blog as it helps me remember all the wonderful things that we’ve done but unfortunately, I was […]

Merry Christmas!

This is our second year staying in Australia for Christmas and again, I have mixed emotions.  It’s so odd not being “home” with all our extended family during this festive time… driving from house to house and eating tons of food, doing gift exchanges and having so many kids running around.  I do miss it […]
