WOW -Another year, I made it through another year of Christmas at Wal-Mart :) Yeah!!! This is 11 years now. I remember when i started this temporary job to help with our Christmas with 4 children at home. WOW -It's a good job and I love what I'm doing hanging in the electronics dept. with all those wonderful movies and toys, its never boring( between the interesting customers and or the people i work with and for) I am truly grateful to have it.
WOW - Another year of good health -I can't even begin to describe the joy i feel being me again. Its like i want to make every minute count. I love being active and busy. I'm amazed just how fast this year went too -last year (2007) dragged ...seriously the days were sooooo long .....now its already half way through Jan. and 2008 is gone. Grandma told me that would happen -each year goes faster and faster. (I have a very good theory on that subject -maybe in a future blog)
WOW -I get to spend more time with the greatest kids and grandkids in the whole world. Just last night we had a spontaneous pizza making party. It was great fun !!! We had a 5 course meal of a variety of homemade pizza. The other day we went to the zoo, it was a quick trip but it felt good--i hadn't been in quite a few years. I'm so grateful that we all live relatively close and can enjoy these times together.
WOW - I am going to celebrate being married to the same great guy for 29 years. WOW!!!!! That is longer than i ever dated anyone:) We are going to go on a date to Kartchner Caverns.
I've been thinking about life and how its changed--i've been married longer than i've been single now --I've lived in this same house longer than anywhere--I've been a mom for over half my life now and now I'm a grandma of 3. Does it get any better--WOW!!
WOW - I have the greatest friends in the world and i get to associate with them (if they still feel the same) I do get kinda busy and forgetful especially through the last month of the year. We have some wonderful friends that every year usually right around Christmas eve host a pot luck dinner at their house. This year we were just amazed at the number of loved ones that were in attendance and now it is 3 generations deep. Just WOW!!!!

Family Picture Fiasco

This year we wanted to update our family picture.....we set a date and it got postponed we set another date and wouldn't you know it was the windiest day of the year (yes we have wind in AZ) but we tried it any way. Okay those pictures didn't turn out. We tried a second time and got some good pictures and then again a THIRD time and FINALLY got the family picture that would work. It only took 1200 digital snapshots, 6 hours of picture taking time and 3 weeks of dressing the same to get THIS wonderful memory shot. Well worth the memory.... now those are some awesome kids!!!!!!!

We finally have a blog!!

Our kids have been bugging us for months about getting in on all of this blogging action, so with much hesitiation and intrepidation we are finally here! I really dont know what to say for any of this and honesty that is why this has taken so long to get going. As this is our first post I guess there is not much more to say than...here we are!!
