So..here I am up again. I haven't blogged in awhile. Whats been going on? New Years came and went, went to see fireworks on the strip. I been working..and I am finally taking Christmas down in my house, because my self imposed rule is: Christmas stays up until after the birthday! What if I kept the tree up year round? Think of all conversation I would get on it..I could make a valentines tree, st patricks day, easter, 4th of July. The thought of that makes me giggle. I have been discovering oils lately and loving it. I have been sketchy, but until I tried them, then I knew. Its an expensive addiction..but as I told a friend of mine, " So what if I don't buy every month, do I get kicked out of "The Club" ? Ha Ha. With being a new year, I want to make healthy changes, not new year's resolutions. I never keep to those anyway. I made it to the gym Monday, yay me. If I can only make myself go on a routine basis, thats the hard part for me. That, and I feel tired. Excuses, Excuses ;). Birthday came and went...a post on that will be coming shortly. I got to see family in Denver. It was so fun to see them, I missed them and Denver. I went back to Colorado Springs in 2008 I think, but didn't get to visit Denver. Its so pretty, lots of snow...Take Me Home Country Roads as Theresa told me, Ha. I have also discovered a new addiction, PBS'S Downtown Abbey, reminds me of BBC Pride and Prejudice. I also found that the Church is really a small world. As a friend who is preparing to move to New York, I thought of my only friend in NYC and told her maybe she would meet her (not really), and lo and behold a friend told her to meet her nephew's wife who happens to work as a nurse also...and knows me! I think I need to plan a trip to New York....:)
All for now, I know this was a super exciting read..hope I didn't put you to sleep...but it kept me awake.

Wow, where did December run off to? Happy NewYear. Here's a recap of my month. So much to do and so little time.
|Next up..a little later in the month, another tradition i've started. Pumpkin Rolls!|
|Theresa is teaching her babysitter the fine art of pumpkin log making...:)|
|Ready for wrapping, we cranked out 6 or 7 of these babies! ;)|
|The dramatic part. Hoping as we tightly roll that our cake doesn't fall apart, LOL.|
And lastly, I was spontaneous , hit the Strip for NYE'S with 45 min to spare. But we stood on top of a parking garage. It was great!! :) December was over in a blink of an eye, but I kept up with traditions to help me through the holiday time, and visited with some friends. I ended up making 12 cookie packages, it was fun but every year I say i'm done for the year. Is it too late for the christmas cards, well my decorations are still up, so I say no. :)
