Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!!!  

I realize it is a bit late ... like 3 years late in fact.  I have been thinking about updating this again for some time but the time always seems to get away from me.  I am going to try to update once a week, maybe more if I'm feeling especially ambitious.  We will just call that a New Years "thing I might want to do this year" to be safe.

I have decided to do a separate blog for quilting, you can check it out here or click over to it from my blog list.  (over there somewhere ----->)

I guess that is all I have for now... hope to have more for you in my upcoming posts!

the camping trip

we went camping last weekend and we had a good time. we arrived at the camping spot about 11ish at night so the kids were ready to go to bed almost right away (they did wake up for a little bit and we had to set up the tent still). after less sleep than i should have had we all got up the next morning. the kids were ready to start fishing right away. with the assistance of grandma C, they both managed to catch a fish. i didn't do much the first day, just mostly relaxing...
the next day was about the same in the morning... just relaxing and such and then my brother in law decided that we should go for a nice afternoon hike. i should have known better when i asked where we were headed and he just pointed up. there was no trail, or even really a plan, we just got some water and went. a couple hours later we had managed to get to the acceptable top (the original top we could now see and it looked a lot more difficult than the original assessment). and there were rain clouds headed our way and we were completely unprepared for pretty much anything that may have happened (my scout leaders from when i was a kid would have been sooooo disappointed!). we headed back down and minus some scrapes on our legs from the brush, we were in pretty good rained a lot that evening and there was a lot of drinking and fun. the next day was just mellow again and we were getting ready to go so not a lot of action on this day for us. we had a good time and the kids slept for a decent chunk of the ride home.

now they wanna go camping again...
