I'm Here

Wow, it cerainly has been a looooooooooong time since I've been here.  I know JA & RR will be happy to see me back.

I don't really know what's been keeping me away.  Ok, maybe it's been the new routine of working and the time just flying by.  I still LOVE my job at high school.  The days just fly by and it is certainly not boring.

Speaking of school, we go back tomorrow.  Now I know that #5 will say he is not ready, but I am.  I think we got out too early for winter break.  The holidays were nice; they were quiet and came and went quickly with no drama, but I AM READY to go back to school.  Just a little worried about setting that alarm clock so early.  I miss my daily routine and miss my "kids".  Naughty or not, they are mine and miss them.

I did get a new "big girl"camer for Christmas this year.  A Canon EOS Rebel T2i.  Now I just need to learn how to use all of the wondeful things it can do.  NOTE TO JA:  when is my first lesson?

Here are a few pics I've taken with it from Christmas and New Years:

#5's new shoes

Parents, #5 and nephew

The X-mas oranment I made in the 6th grade, still on my mom's tree every year

My parents in their new robes they got for x-mas from my borther and sister-in-law.  Told them I am going to make this their X-mas card for next year.

New Year's Eve was an early evening spent at my brother and sister-in-laws's.  It was his 50th b-day

Husband with the youngest and oldest nieces.

#5 looking so thrilled. Couldn't wait to get home and hang out with his friends.

Me & G

Sisters.  Brother-in-law's three daughters.  26, 14 and 1!

I wonder who gave this to G??????  Her favorite auntie of course!!!

So now that I have a new camera to learn how to use, I hope to be back here more often.  I have been in a creative slump (again), so maybe the new camera will help with that too.  I have a project to do for a family member and am having a hard time starting.  But, that is one of my resolutions; start the project and "Keep Creating"!  See you all soon!

  1. Yes, yes, glad your back to blogging. I too found I needed a blogging break this holiday season. So I'm glad we are both back. And IKEA with our cameras? Please!
