New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve was fun. We ate lots of good food and watched movies. Our kids had friends over and they stayed up all night. It was good to be out of the cold weather and have some good wholesome fun. Before long we will be doing this all over again. The years fly by so fast.

Day after Christmas

Can't believe it's the day after Christmas already. My sons and I are going shopping to see if we can find any bargains. We will probably be gone most of the day. It's just so fun to get away with my sons once in awhile cause we don't get to do it very often. I'm sure we will probably spend too much money. Now it's time to move onto the new Year.

Working Christmas weekend

I'm bummed that I have to work the weekend right before Christmas this year. At least I have Christmas day off. It makes it hard to figure out when we can do family Christmas's. It will all work out. Hopefully next year I won't have to work so much around Christmas but I bet I will.

We went to a Swedish smorgasbord at church the other night. We have it every December around Christmas time. So much to eat and very yummy. Lots of people in our church attend this and it's a great tradition in our church. The Swedish deserts are the best. Of course I was miserably full by the end of the night.

After Thanksgiving shopping

The after Thanksgiving Christmas shopping can be alot of fun but it can also be very frustrating.
Fighting crowds and finding out that things you are looking for that are on sale are out of stock.
Even though it can be frustrating I still enjoy it and it's a great way to kick off the Christmas season.

Thanksgiving is a great time to get together with family and enjoy food and fellowship together.
It would be nice to have more Thanksgiving days during the year so that it is a reminder to all of us to be thankful for everything God has given us and done for us.

Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat time is here. The costumes are so cute and the little children have so much fun.
The variety of costumes are fun to see and the creativity of some children or should I say parents is really neat as to what they come up with for these costumes. They are so unique and fun. I don't know how they come up with their ideas sometimes but it's pretty cool.

Halloween can be a fun time of year but I don't like it when there is too much focus on scary movies and scary masks, etc. It would be nice if it could be more light hearted and less frightening. I love the idea of pumpkins and cute little costumes that children wear but not the gory horror stuff. I think children could enjoy it more, too if it were a lot less scarey.

The Young and the Restless

There is one soap opera that I do enjoy watching once in awhile and that is the Young and the Restless. I know there's a lot of deception and messing up relationships on there but I don't take it seriously and I just like keeping up with what's going on. A person doesn't need to watch it everyday to keep up with it. Not too much changes day to day but when they have a good storyline going on it's hard not to watch it everyday.

Scrapbooking is so much fun. It's a great way to create memories with pictures, stickers, and journaling. It's a fun way to use all the pictures that have been taken over the years. I enjoy going to retreats with friends and catching up with what I need to get done. It also make for a nice weekend away from everyday life. I'm so glad that I have started this hobby.

Retirement home

I work at a retirement home. It's enjoyable to work around the elderly. It's like having your grandparents around you all of the time. They make it fun. I help serve them in the dining room at this facility and have fun joking with them and making them smile. I think it makes their day.

I love to suntan. I realize it ages your skin more quickly and can cause skin cancer. I just love how browning your skin can make a person look healthier. If they a made a descent self tanning lotion I would consider going that route. It is tempting to try the spray on tan but not sure how long it would last or how expensive it would be.

Lucky is our son's dog. She is a mix between boarder collie and black lab. She is so much fun.
Very energetic but very loving. We have had the pleasure of her visit over our son's birthday. She is so smart and catches on to what we want to teach her quickly. She resembles a lab more then anything. She is very cute. She just loves to lick your face and hands. She also loves going for walks but seems to walk us verses us walk her.

Smoky Mountains

My family took a trip to the Smoky Mountains and had so much fun. What a beautiful place to visit. We created great memories there. A vacation we will always remember. It was a wonderful place to take in God's creation. The many trees and hills were awsome. There was alot of activities to do, too. We took so many pictures and those we will be able to enjoy for a lifetime.

Labor Day

Labor Day is a nice holiday basically reminding you that summer is near the end and fall is beginning. It seems we mainly work on Labor Day and really don't take the time to do anything special. The way the years go by we should take advantage of every holiday to spend them in a special way, mainly with family.
