October. . . .

Just had my birthday! A really nice one. Went to dinner with the kids and Tim at the Pizza Madness and of course they made a big ole deal of it . . . but it was fun. We had our first snow that stuck a couple of days ago. I am so not ready. Today was a reallly cold day, but I got these awesome shots of the sunset. Love the mountains.

Catching Up !

To catch up . . . . Paige cut her hair . . I mean like super short, like say Pixie short. Good thing she is dang cute. It’s going to be awhile before she is wearing any pigtails. I went to Indiana in August for a visit. Most of the visit was good. I got to see family and friends. LOVE my bro . . . he is so cool. Chae got engaged to Josh. They are planning to be married next October. . . official date (so far) is Oct 16, 2010. Can you believe my oldest is getting married? Can I get another OMG? Josh is great, Tim & I both love him to death, so this is really good news!! The Indiana trip ended badly . . my folks started their BS with me and then Dad and Tim got into it pretty badly the day we left, which was the day Chae got engaged. I was very sad about the whole thing and it took me nearly 2 weeks to recover, but recently have been thinking about calling mom and talking to her. I miss my family, but they can be difficult! On the home front, I am working at the church as the secretary. I am loving it. We are working on lots of good stuff to organize the church. This is SOOO me! Life is good! Or as Tim would like to quote his current favorite song “ God is great, beer is good and people are crazy” ! Amen!

June, Already?

Wow how time flies. I just finished working at Pizza Madness for 3 weeks while one of the girls took a vacation. I was so exhausted from being on my feet and walking non stop for hours, that I came home and pooped out, so it feels like forever since I posted a blog. We had some excitement last night when Paige cut her face right above her lip and we took her down to Pueblo to get some stitches (3 to be exact). It was a small cut, but we wanted to minimize the scarring, so it was probably worth it. She was such a trooper. . . didn't even cry once. Not even when they gave her the numbing shots, which burn like crazy. Her eyes watered up, but that was it. She has the biggest fat lip I have ever seen. I mean, that thing is HUGE. She cut it by playing with those metal horses on a play ground that sit on those metal coils and you can rock on them. She got the thing going too much and it mashed her in the mouth! She lived and we are on to another day . . . .

Busy, busy, busy

I love this time of year, the fresh green trees and plants, everything feels so new! But it is also a very busy time of year. School is getting out; lots of field trips and ceremonies at the school, making plans for summer, planting in my garden, and I am filling in at the restaurant for a vacationing waitress. Not to mention I got a new job as secretary at our church. So many new things! All good and great, but wow am I busy. I actually like being busy, as long as I am not overwhelmed. The kids and hubby are gone this weekend and I plan to have some much needed down time, starting with a nice, long, hot bubble bath - right now!!

Cutting my hair

I finally got tired of the frumpy hair I was trying to grow out. Funny I always think I want it longer, but I hate it when it starts getting long. I just went 6 months with no cuts and wearing it up all the time, but today I cut it off, again. I really like it. It pretty much looks like the picture on my profile again, whichI think is cute and a little sassy. Reminds me of . . . Me! I love a good hair cut. Sort hair, for me, is so much easier than longer hair. Probably because my hair gets too heavy and looks "limp" to me when it is longer. Anyway . . . I am happy with it and Tim likes short hair. I know, most guys don't . . . but it's not those guys I would like to please :)

Mother's Day Card

I finished these up a couple of days ago, but I just kept running out of time to take a picture. I made one for my mom and for my mother-in-law. They are now in the mail and I hope (cross my fingers) that they will arrive in time.
