Hello out there!

I have been a busy bee.My kiddos have started their competitions with Academic teams and it is running me ragged! I have one in three schools on the teams and they all are practicing during the week. My high schooler has practice every evening after school and the other two have practice twice a week.

They love it and they do well in their subject areas, so that is good. A bit of my time and they make me proud indeed!

I have also been busy with my swaps and exchanges. It is so much fun meeting new people from around the world.

I hope to write more often, I tend to forget about my poor blog! lol
The Merriest of Christmas to you all and I will return!
Hugs N Blessings!

I apologize for my lack of blogging! Sinced Feb. no doubt!!!!
I had quite a bit go on during the year. In March my hubby injured himself working on his dad's proerty and could not go to work for 12 weeks! He was home with me so priorities changed! lol
He is fine now and back to work. It was a long 12 weeks though! lol

I tried to change my blog a bit and lost all of my links. I have forgotten how to put them back!!!!!! Can anyone help me?!! lol

We have had a busy summer and it passed by so fast! Now the kids are back in school and looking forward to me spending all m time driving them to and from Academic Team practices. I will have two of them participating this year instead of two! All at different schools too! Yikes!!!!
My hubby thought he found a new home for us and we all got excited. Then we sat down and though some more. It is BEAUTIFUL and BIG, but it is not wute arranged how we'd like it if we had to choose.....wait a minute we CAN choose! lol It is our money!!!
So we are backing up and thinking of other options now to get exactly what we want, that "Dream house" that seemed so far away once!
He is thinking about rennovating this one. We will see!
Well, that is all for now, hopefully I will do better now that I can try to find a routine! lol

My birthday

Today was my birthday. Of course it is after midnight now, so it is technically another day! lol
I got several packages in the mail this week from my different groups! It was so exciting! I am in a birthday eexchange in a couple of groups and it was nice to get cards, notes and little gifts from them!
So all in all it is a good day. I had to make my own cake of course, and ran out of time so I did not icing it yet. Maybe

Why do I like Snow???

I like snow because when I was a child, we had snow EVERY January. And Jan. is my birthday month so it usually ment I was out of school on my birthday! LOL
Now I like it because it is so pretty to watch fall on the grass and the trees. I love the quiet as it comes down and each flake more unique than the first.
Then of course I love snow because I can watch the kids go out and get totally wild and wet in it, snow angels, snowball stuff. Then come inside and warm up with warm milk or cocoa!

Too bad we haven't had any this year :(

Well, This is my birthday month, and it is not starting off too hot. I think I have the flu!
I have been feverish all day long and feeling so bad. Still had to do the routine because the kids were 100% and going strong!!
I did not want to give it to dh so I stayed out of the room till he left for work.
I worked on exchanges last week. A bookmark and coaster exchange. I am almost finished with Juli's puffy for the Bokmark Exchange site.
