It may look like you have seen these pictures before, BUT... you haven't! We are in the middle of yet another snow storm! This time it isn't any little measly 8 inch storm - so far we have over 15 inches and it is still snowing! I am sure these pictures speak for themselves!

Elevator in China!

SB and I went to finish up our last minute Christmas shopping yesterday. Our travels took us to the mall where we needed to go upstairs. I don't know if many of you realize that handicap accessible doesn't mean convenient! Well, it is the honest truth and yesterday proves that! We decided to go up the escalator (yes! I did mean the escalator and not the elevator!) and when we got ready to come down the escalator there was a sign - a professionally made sign, not a hand written sign - that said "Elavator in China"! I couldn't help but to laugh! It took me until we got most of the way down the escalator to realize that it meant that the elevator was to be found in the china department (fine dishes)! All that I could wrap my mind around was that someone had finally SAW THE LIGHT!! and had decided to publish what I have known for over 20 years - accessibility doesn't mean convenient!!!!

Calendar Woes

It is that time of the year when the calendar starts to run out and it is time to get a new one! I had found a wonderful calendar this last year and went to get another one just like it but . . . of course they didn't have the one I wanted - which sent me looking for a new one! I found one I think I am going to really like but the cover wasn't going to work for me. I ripped off the cover and made a new one. I put cute little ribbon tabs where the months started and joila - THE PERFECT calendar for my new year!

Christmas Tree Cutting Expedition

This weekend we drove out to the mountains and chopped down our very own Christmas Tree! It was definitely a first for all of us. We had such a great time. Our tree is very cute and has such character! The part I liked best is that we got to pick it!! Here is a tip though for those who have never done this and think they might want to - the trees look smaller in the wild! We thought ours was going to be tiny in our house, but. . . it is pretty full. Someone had told us to make sure that SB stood next to it and make sure it wasn't going to be too tall! We did manage not to get a tree that was too tall.There was snow still in the mountains too - so the kids made snowballs! We had a great time. We celebrated C's birthday also with a trip to Frontier for breakfast.

I am here and alive! I think this might be the longest blog lag in the history of my blog! Well here I am and here is a recap on my last month.

  • Trip to Pheonix and Phantom of the Opera was awesome! We totally surprised the kids and they didn't figure out we were on our way to Pheonix until after we were already out of town! They thought we were just going the wrong way to school! Once we were there, SB surprised A with Dallas Cowboys vs Arizona Cardinal tickets that we got from Treasure's Father-in-law. Dallas won, by the way!
  • I am officially all healed and feeling GREAT!!!
  • I am working with my friend doing ad work for her new business, Across The Street (scrapbooking manufacturing business)! Marchelle and her partner, Sandi, really are geniuses with really great ideas. I completed my first ad for a real life magazine just this week. It is fun being creative and BOY, do I have alot to learn.
  • We are getting ready for C's birthday and for Jesus' birthday! It is hard to believe that another year has come and is almost gone! It just doesn't seem possible.
That is just a small recap and I am sorry that I haven't been so diligent and I fear that I have lost some readers and have fallen into that category of long forgotten boring blogs like this one here Bergan Brand! If you happen to click on this one - you will notice the last entry is JUNE 17!!!! I never want that kind of fate for my dear beloved blog! I will try to make a better effort at keeping my blog ALIVE!!!
