Lizzie is part of our family too!

Just had to share this family photo.  I love it that our dog Lizzie wanted to be in the picture and when Justin picked her up she gave him sugar and the photographer captured the moment - priceless moment!

The New Year

Wow, can't believe today is already the 9th of January.  Yesterday I celebrated my 46th Birthday.  I tell everyone i'm just 36.  I had my last son when I was 36 and I said I wouldn't have anymore birthday.  But it's all well and good.  You are only as old as you feel and I do not feel 46.  Tonight will is the first night of my second semester of college.  I finished my first semester with 3 - A's & 1 - C.  I was very proud of myself.  I do not do well with math and that's what I made a "C" in.  I was hoping for at least a B.  That would of put me on A&B honor roll. Ok honestly I just wanted my mane in the local paper for making Deans List.
With a new year there are always new starts, since i don't like to say "New Year's Resolution" I just try to make some great changes.  Hopefully I'm going to get better at this blogging.  I keep forgetting to do it. There's really no excuse, I just forget.  I'm also trying some new starts in my spiritual life. And as always I always try to make changes in being a better mom & just all around better person.
I know everyone is on a "Pinterest" kick and i've been bitten too.  So I cleaned up my sewing room this weekend.  I am going to make my son some St. Louis Cardinals curtains.  Darrell & I painted his room (I only rent so I had to go back with what color it was) but can't wait to see how they turn out.  I'll post pictures (if i just don't totally forget).  Well until next time.
This is our family picture at Christmas 2011, my mother, sister, brother, my children & niece & nephew.  Since it was a Sunday we went to Church to celebrate the birth of our savior.  My family surprised me and they was all there.  We always do lunch at my house. Then afterwards the kids get to open their gifts.  It was a wonderful day with family & of course lots of food.
