Let's Chat

Oh my goodness gracious!!! It seems like forever since we've chatted. Pull up a chair, grab yourself a cup of coffee and let's talk, shall we?

How in the world are you?

Did you have a most wonderful Christmas? Enjoy lots of yummy food? Receive any cool gadgets for Christmas?

What about New Years? Did you ring in the new year with friends?

Me? To be honest with you... I for one am glad the business of the season is behind us. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Christmas, but it does make me SO tired... ya know, going here, there, and yonder. Tired, I tell ya. Tired.

Life is beginning to settle down for us, or should I say... life, as we know it every day, is getting back to normal. All the Christmas decor has been taken down and put away until next year. Old toys have been replaced with new ones. Company has returned home. And, the house is back in order from all the hubbub of the season. We are ready to embark on the journey God has before us for this 2010 year.

Here's a little peek inside what we've been up to the past few weeks:

The kiddos and I spent 2 1/2 weeks at my parent's house while hubs worked in Houston.

My grandmother, who was visiting from Florida, taught my daughter and I how to crochet. I crocheted my first scarf. Hooray for me!!!!

Our oldest daughter turned 10. I can't believe it!!!! Soon she'll catch up with me, cause I'm only 21, ya know!?! *smile*

My son can now speak 5 languages. Well... not really. But, he is convinced he can, so why burst his bubble, right?

The wee princess is now completely potty trained. Hallelujah, praise the Lord!!!!

I dyed my hair. It turned black. I dyed it again. It stayed black. I washed it with dish washing liquid. It still remained black. I cut my hair. Now, it is short and a faded blackish brown color. Sigh.

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve service at my parent's church. Joined with other brothers and sisters in Christ in taking the Lord's Supper and focusing our minds on the true meaning of Christmas.

Feasted on fried turkey and all the fixin's for Christmas day dinner. It was DELICIOUS!!! Way to go dad!!!

Hubs and I enjoyed a day to ourselves thanks to the grandparents. Did a little shopping, ate lunch at Olive Garden, and saw "The Blind Side". It was heavenly!!!

I got a really cool new pink leather journal that I can't wait to fill the pages of this year.

Set some goals for the year. I'll be sharing some of them with you later this week.

Oh... and, I made THE most scrumptious pot of shrimp and sausage gumbo ever!!!! Yum-o!!!

Well...that about sums it up for our fam. What about you and yours? What have you guys been up to lately?

Hi Jenifer with one "n". A Happy New Year to ya.

Sounds like you had some wonderful Holidays and are now ready to settle in to the regular routines of life.

Young mothers have to have their routines! Us retired folks too I guess but it is different.

I feel like we all have a clean new slate at the beginning of the year, on which to write. I love it.

I enjoyed the way you wrote this post. "Let's" Chat!" Cute!

I cracked up when you described your hair. I think we have all been- there- done -that at some points in our lives!

You are a pretty lady so I am sure it looks lovely.

Have a great day!

Sounds like a great time with family. I am so glad you learned to crochet. I taught myself a couple of years ago and really enjoy it. Only problem, I can't be on the computer while I am crocheting. Ha ha.

Happy New Year!!

Sounds like you and your family had a great time with family and friends. Your hair doesn't sound too bad. 2 years ago my daughter thought she died her hair midnight black... but after it turned blue she looked again at the box... it said MIDNIGHT BLUE!! Yep... she had blue hair! LOL... Once I died my hair red and it was too red, so we toned it down.. so we thought... it become pink!! So you see.... your hair is normal! LOL>>>

Have a great day!
