My blogging break started as a lack of inspiration for a day or two and then it turned into..something else. I’ve actually been thinking about the blog quit a bit, and reevaluating my blog philosophy/strategy. I haven’t come to any conclusions, but decided to go ahead and start posting on the 1st of December, as it is time, once again, for the Journal Your Christmas project. (You can see all of my posts about last year’s Christmas Journal HERE). I don’t actually have today’s activity done yet, because I’m still contemplating that, too. I don’t have the time to spend on it that I did last year, so I need to make it simpler. I still want to do it, though, so that will be forthcoming.
Right now, I just wanted to share 2 pictures that will explain part of why I’ve been quiet the last week:
My sister and her family have been here for the past week (and are leaving today, boo-hoo). Hannah is now 10 months old and just as sweet as can be. She is teething, and is very attached to her Mommy. She has finally warmed up to being held and played with by someone other than Mommy or Daddy, and of course she has to go home now.
Colin is THREE. And boy is he THREE. He’s pretty sweet, too, but I think the photo gives you an idea of his currently personality. Busy. Silly. (That’s his “CHEESE” face). Funny. Constantly in motion. Hopefully he didn’t pick up too many bad habits (or words) from my monsters. (They were wearing shorts because they were headed to basketball shortly after this picture. I don’t know what’s up with Joe’s smile. Or Will’s face. Sheesh).
I’m partly posting these pictures because of the THREE people that have said something about the lack of blogging, one of them is the other grandma of these two munchkins, so, here you go Judy! Thanks for asking about me!
(The other two that mentioned my absence were my sister and mother).
So, back later with today’s Christmas Journal entry.
Have a great Monday.
I’m doing the class this year too after seeing it on your blog last year but my pages will be VERY, VERY simple.
I’m behind reading all my blogs so I hadn’t realized that you’d been missing until I went to link to you when I was posting earlier today….I wondered if anything was wrong so I headed over to MQR and saw that you’d been posting there so figured everything was OK. I find it easy to find time to post but harder to find time to read other blogs.
I’ve been missing your posts too! Just figured you were busy with Thanksgiving & the store! Glad to see you back!
I was missing you too but figured you were just busy.

Those are some seriously cute faces! Welcome back….I find I’m sort of sporadic about keeping up with posting… maybe I’ll try to do better in 2009…lol
I think they could keep any one busy. What cutie pies – all FOUR of those kiddos! Hope you had a great time!
Thanks, Suzanne, for the pictures. I too thought you were busy with the store and your sister’s visit. That’s okay really.
I can just hear Colin’s “cheese”! And that is the best picture I’ve seen of Hannah’s two dimples!
Diana Wilson says
I was starting to wonder where you were too and was hoping nothing was wrong. Boy, your niece resembles your boys. Must be a strong family resemblance you all have. Sounds like you’ve had a great week.
Tanya Brown says
I wondered how you were. It has to be a busy time for you, what with running a business, Christmas, and visiting with family.
Blogging can be good, but at times it strikes me as being very similar to taking photos. Sometimes it’s nice to simply enjoy and experience life and not worry about recording it.
Christine Olson says
I have missed your blogging but thought you were either too busy or sick. (We’ve been big time sick in our house the whole month of November and more, so being sick was my first thought.)
Glad to hear that it was something more fun than work or illness that kept you mia.

Oops! Had too many windows open and I took a phone call before finishing my comment. That last paragraph was really referencing something entirely different! Could you delete that portion of my comment, please?
Did I have you scratching your head? 😀
