A New Year 2015

Happy January, 2015! May it be a year of peace and calm and love for you and your friends and family. I am still amazed at the nice life God has given me, even with all the normal ups and downs. Married almost 19 years, 3 beautiful children. My oldest is a teenager now!! 13 is a beautiful age. I love watching her grow and mature, and yet still be my little girl at the same time. We like to read and play games together, and enjoy music together. My 2nd daughter is 10 now. She is strong, beautiful, and spunky. She is quite athletic and funny. We enjoy laughing and being silly and singing together. I can always count on her to do goofy things with me. My little young man is 7 now, and he is still such a snuggler, and I don't mind it one bit. He loves his kitties and Star Wars and his friends. He likes school and legos. I couldn't ask for better children for me. I love how they all love to pile up on the couch with me, fighting over my lap, or snuggle up in bed with me. I'll never be in a rush for them to grown up.

Still crafting quite a bit, and really I am about as caught up as I ever get. I still have a couple of things I'm making for friends, and then I'll be totally caught up. I have some personal projects I'd like to finish this year. I'm still selling my things online and in the brick and mortar store Raggle Taggle. I'm enjoying working part time there. I'm also immensely enjoying all my volunteer time at the schools. I love it that my kids beg me to chaperone their school trips with them. So much fun!!

I guess I will throw in a few pics to go with the new year.

Ana and I had lots of fun trying on Christmas decorations at the little shop around the corner

future legislator??

somebody loves his kitties

Giving Thanks

I like to make giving thanks a lifestyle and not something I do just 8% of the year (that's 1/12).
Some days and months it's harder than other times. Got to spend some good time at my parents house for Thanksgiving. Family is at the top of my most important list, and is at the top of my list of things I'm thankful for. I'm also thankful for some really good friends along the way.

Adventures of Cardboard Ana

I totally missed posting in October about my big craft show. It was lots of fun. I might post pics later from that. Recently we went on a family trip and my daughter found out her class was having class pictures. She didn't want to miss it, so she found a creative solution.

Cardboard Ana!!

I haven't heard about all of the adventures Cardboard Ana had at school last week, but she came home with me today, and we had some fun of our own.
In the car, on the way home from school. Safety first!!

If you know Ana, you know the first place she goes when she gets home is to her tree.

So glad to be home!

Fun on the swing set...

Swinging and sliding

once more in her favorite tree

Last, but not least, snuggle time with Green Bunny at last!
It's good to be home.

(hopefully I'll be able to update later with pics from Cardboard Ana's adventures at school)
