How time flies

I didn't take Christmas pics of the girls at Christmas. I took some at our family Christmas party doing karoeke. I will have to post them here soon. I can't believe the year is almost done. According to the Mayan calendar, I won't be blogging this time next year, as the world is supposed to end 12-20-2012. Do you believe that? So much to do and so little time. I will bid adieu for now, and wish everyone a very happy 2012. Happy new year everyone!! Thank you to all my new followers and those that read from around the world. I am so happy to have a blog that is read from Palos Hills Illinois to Hong Kong and Bangladesh! I will take some New Years Photos.

Until next time!

Our beagle

We were told. Beagles are not loyal. They have their noses to the ground, and are hunters. Our girls wanted a puppy, and Becca wanted a beagle so bad. We got one. I have to admit however, he is worse than a toddler. Worse! Sparky is into everything. He kept escaping our fenced in yard. He is fast and quite the jumper we found out. We can not leave him loose in the yard unless we are directly watching him, for fear he'll jump out of the yard. So....

We got a dog run, in hopes that he would stay in the yard. you can see above it didn't work to well....we are working on it though...

until next time.

My trip to Mississppi

I was hesitant, I must admit. My husband said he needed me to go to help to drive, he couldn't do it alone. Hm, I said, YOU'RE going to let me drive?? If you're husband is like mine, he doesn't like wifey to drive. I had to arrange to get the time off, which was a neat trick since I work for 3 home health companies. Fortunately, census is down in all 3 businesses, so I was able to do it. We even had Sparky with us. I didn't take any pictures, but their grandmother Leona did. I have to get those.

The drive was beautiful but long. A 12 hour drive. We wouldn't have been able to do it if it was just a one person drive. When it was my turn, I was so tempted to go to Nashville. Next time we'll make a pit stop...I want to see Evis' house.

To combat boredom we listened to an audio book. It was my husbands type of course, but my youngest really loved it. I had wanted them to do flash cards and etc, but you know what they say about the best intentions. Have you taken a short trip somewhere? Let me know about it in the comments section.

Until next time, which will be soon. I have so much to share with you.
