Happy 2014!

I cannot believe that I have not updated my blog since September 11th!  Can I just say how much I have missed blogging. I don't even know if people read this blog, but I enjoy doing it.

Lots going on since I last updated.  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  I love everything about it.  The food, the smells, the colors.  You get what I am trying to say.  All four kids were here. Greg's roommate came for the day as well.  I am counting down the months until the next Thanksgiving.

Christmas was awesome as well.  Again all four kids were here and we went to mass on Christmas Eve.  Even Adam and Ej (the boyfriends) came along.  The kids (and the boyfriends) drew names so we started off exchanging those gifts.  It was so nice to have them all here.  Greg and Liz actually spent the night.  We all slept in on Christmas morning and didn't get started until almost 9 am.  That's a record for us.  Even Mark didn't wake up early.    Santa was especially good to me this year.  Tickets to see Jersey Boys in April and a new Silhouette.  I am ashamed to say I haven't played with it yet.  I am still sorting/purging my scrapbook space.  But I will!

(our annual trip to Mickey's Christmas Party at Disney World)

Not sure if I have mentioned this or not, but Liz moved out back over the summer. It was weird.  She works for the local newspaper which is located downtown and it was such a far commute.  So she moved closer to downtown.  She has a cute little place.  Greg moved out as well.  He lives down by the university with four roommates.  He still comes by alot since he works very close.  He will graduate in May!  Can  you believe it?  Right now he is interning at a physical therapy gym.  He plans on applying to grad school and continue on become a physical therapist.  Right now he is graduating with a degree in Exercise Science.  Emily is in her second year at USF. I honestly don't know what she is majoring in.......she is constantly changing her mind.  Mark is plugging along.  Still in his same school.  This time next year we will be touring high schools to see what will be the best fit for him.  Right now he is in a very small Christian school.  There are only nine kids in his class.  It's great for now but I want him to have just a bigger high school setting.  He still loves running.  I just signed him up for his second 5K race...Gasparilla.  Big race here in town.  He will be running with my neighbor.  Since he isn't into sports, this is perfect for him.

I hope to stay with this blog.  I really miss it.  I miss reading other's blogs as well. I started out this year hoping to do Project Life.  I bought the kit last year and didn't last but two months. I have already gotten behind this year so I am hoping to catch up and do it.  Maybe this will be my motivation.

So, until I blog again.  Have a good one

I read your blog, so don't stop blogging. I also bought a silhouette, and haven't opened the box yet. It is sitting amongst the boxes in the basement of the house we are renting.
