Aarrgghh. Why does life always get in the way! I so wanted to do better last year, and while it wasn't great, it was better. So this year I thought I would do even better...but here it is the end of January and I'm finally blogging. Hmmm...I could blame it on a 12-week online scrapbook class, or the big shake up at work, but it probably is just me being so overwhelmed with all that I want to do that I don't know where to start. Maybe if I just keep making my new goal to do better than the last year, I will eventually be a blogging regular!
For K's bday we spent a day in Kansas City. Met Bettina for brunch and then went to Archivers...were lucky K got to participate in the make-&-take. He did pretty good for his first time scrappin'! And note, this is why I always carry my camera everywhere I go...you never know when you may need to take blackmail pictures...'See honey, you enjoy scrapping too, so that's why I need to buy X new scrapbook tool/supply/product'. Anyway, we had a great time...saw the plaza lights, ate some good food (can anyone say Cheesecake Factory?!), saw a great movie (The Blind Side) and attempted to ice skate at Crown Center. All in all a good weekend!
This was our 'small' snowstorm in December. There was actually 12" around midnight, but the winds picked up overnight so that all that was left my morning was a puny 9"...plus a few really deep drifts. We didn't even attempt to go to work...which was a good thing as the drifts along one of our county roads were as tall as the round bales...over 5'!
