How time flies!

I can't believe that is has been almost 3 months since I last posted on my blog! Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years have all come and gone! Valentine's Day is upon us and I sit here and wonder where the days have gone! It seems sometimes like the days pass by so quickly that before I know it a week has gone by!
We had a very nice Thanksgiving Dinner with friends! This was the first time that I have cooked for a large group and it all went fairly smooth!
Christmas was exceptionally hectic this year with the kids being in a play at church and a Christmas party for all of the kids in town, the week before! The whole week before Christmas seemed to pass in such a blur! Cookies to bake for various gatherings and costumes to make! I did manage to get my tree decorated,but even though I had high hopes of decorating the house I never even managed to get the boxes of decorations out! I have decided that for next year I don't care if we don't do anything outside of the house for Christmas, I am determined to keep things low key for my family and have time to bake cookies with my kids and to go crazy decorating!
For New Years we stayed home and went to bed before the ball dropped here!

Now it's the middle of February. We have been busy packing and getting ready to move! Gary has been remodeling the house we are moving into! I am so excited because I will actually have a craft room of my own! I will also have a pantry and the kids will have their own rooms! This is a pic of the front addition that will be my craft room! I know it doesn't look like much now, but I am so excited! Of course, Isaiah can't pass up the photo op! When it's done my room will be about 12' x 8'! There will also be tons of shelves!!! Gary has gotten a lot done since I took this pic last week and Lord willing we will be able to move soon!

It's good to see you again blogging! I'm just as bad, I go through stretches of weeks, I think no one wants to hear about this or that. When I get back to it,I find I have missed doing it.
I know you have been waiting to move for a long time, and having your own space is so nice. Congratulations.

I have been meaning so many times to post something new! The time just seems to get away from me! I couldn't believe it when I saw that I hadn't put anything on since mid November! Hope all is well in Washington! Thank you!
