New Year Fun - 2008

The wonderful Kelli at "There's is no place like home" is doing this really cute feature. Here's what she said:

With the New Year right around the corner, this is the perfect time for a peek through the past year of blogging. I would love for you to join in with me!

Post the first sentence of your first blog post of each month. You can also add a favorite picture from each month.

Is it safe to come out now??? I've been counting down the minutes until I could finally say "I'm FREE from the holidays and the craziness".......not a minute too soon I tell you.

Blackout - January 27, 2008

I wish it was bedtime, but I still have a couple hours to go since it's only noon here. *sigh*

The kids with Jason Bell from the NY Giants

It took us 15 hours to move the whole house and two 24 foot truck trips.

Base Carnival

That neck/shoulder muscle pain is just not going away so I'm off to the doctors this morning.


Well the internet has been down for us for the last 2 days

Kruger Park - May 29, 2008

I have so many more photos I want to share with you and once I'm back home in the States I will, but for now I wanted to leave you with a few more pictures taken during our stay.

Kids and my grandma in South Africa

I'm sure you're wondering just what I did with myself this past week. Well, I cooked and baked and I cleaned

Monsoon season here in Arizona

Have you ever had one???? Because if you haven't, you don't know what you're missing and when I tell you that they're SUPER easy to make, I mean like super easy you won't believe you ever lived without making them, kinda way.

Hi everyone, come on in and see what's in my daybook!

Dust storm

The sun may be setting, but in a child's world the fun is just beginning.....

Candy, Costumes, Children and a Crazy question!

You know you don't need to go out and do something expensive to enjoy the Christmas season or have fun with the family.


  1. This looks like fun, I'll do it tonight. You had a great year. I hope next year is even better.
