Tutu and Boots

Who couldn't love this one of a kind girl? A tutu and boots...and she's saying "yeehaw!"

Happy Birthday Mr. Washington

Anna is a history buff in the making. She fell in love with Washington D.C. this past Summer and asked for the Washington Monument for Christmas. She has 3 W.M. figurines, a book about D.C., a photo book from our trip which she counts among her most treasured possessions. We couldn't let President Washington's birthday pass without a celebration. It was crazy hat day at school so we created a hat with all her favorite D.C. monuments. She was also leader at school so she was able to take her books about D.C. and show them to her classmates. In the afternoon she watched Charlie Brown goes to Washington D.C. while I prepared all of George's favorite foods for dinner. We had fish, green beans and cornbread. We threw in some mac n cheese because we're sure he would have loved that too! We topped it off with cherry crunch and vanilla ice cream since we all know he loved cherries. It's a small thing to do for the joy that it brought to Anna. You would have thought it was her birthday! We love our little history girl!

This is not a mistake....I am blogging!

Oh my, oh my...where can I even start? It has been exactly 9 months since my last post. I don't think I intentionally decided to stop blogging, it was kind of a slow fade from this world. I guess with the popularity of facebook and being able to tell hundreds of people what I was doing within seconds, I lost the desire to actually think about what I wanted to say and maybe have some purpose behind it. For the last few weeks though, I've felt the urge to resume blogging. Seems like many people felt that same urge as I've received several notifications of friends who have resumed their blog.
I guess I treat my blog like I do many other things, if I can't do it well, then why do it. But, I don't think it has to be like that. This is merely my avenue for doing something I enjoy doing, writing. I try so hard to journal, and I've come a very long way, but I can't seem to make myself journal the day to day ins and outs that I so desperately want to remember. The moments that bring me such joy that all to quickly fade from my memory. So with that intention in mind, I am attempting to resurrect my blog. I want to capture more than my feeble mind allows me to. I want to share what the Lord is doing in my life on a daily basis. Even if no one in this present day reads this., I hope that one day my children will and they will find a little piece of me and a big piece of them that brings them great joy! So Erin, Anna, and Megan, my precious angels, this is for you.....
