Whew....

I don't know about you guys... but I am glad that Christmas has come and gone!

I love Christmas but by the time it is over... I am ready for some boring/normal again!

I am ready for some cleaning up and cleaning out too! It is that time of the year... time to redo and organize and clean... fun fun!

I have some big plans for my bonus room... I will try to remember to take pictures so I can share what I am doing. Maybe I will start blogging about something besides cards! :) Maybe!

I have put off doing anything to my bonus room... thinking that I may need to move my craft stuff back up there at some point if we were to have another child. Well... since I know the answer to that now... it is time to do something with that room. I need to make more room for Carver's toys since his collection of stuff is growing and growing! I am excited to get started on it!

Anyway... Christmas was great! I hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas as well!

I thought I would post a few pics real quick. Michael is working on uploading our pictures to flickr and here are a few from our Christmas with my immediate family. This is just a picture of me, Michael and Carver. And then one of me with my mom and one of me with my dad!





I took a lot of pictures... well... we took a lot of pictures but (for me anyway) it is hard to get great shots with all of the commotion. I take a million and just pray to get one or two good ones!

I will probably post more later as Michael gets more uploaded to flickr!

I have missed blogging and commenting! I am glad for the holiday season to be behind us (almost) so I can get back in my routine! However.... I need to redefine my routine as I don't want to get back into old non-sleeping habits! :) So... I am excited to see what this new year is going to look like! I hope to find a better balance with spending time with my husband at night some too instead of in my craft room. Having cancer kind of put things in perspective for me and I pray that I don't lose that and get back into old/bad habits! Anyway....

I will shut up now! It has just been a while and I wanted to get on and say "Hello... I have missed you!!"!

Peace and Love! :)
