A new scene

Did you notice? There are some changes going on around here. It's not quite finished yet, but I LOVE it! Merry Christmas and Happy Blogoversary to me!

We are expecting snow here for the first time this winter. The girls are so excited. They have visions of our last winter in WA where it snowed for 2 weeks. Aah the memories...You can see our WA snow pics here.


On another note, one year ago today my sweet Mikayla joined the family gallbladder club. Yep, she had it removed at the tender age of 5 years old. Oh, what an ordeal it was just to have it diagonosed as gallbladder inflamation, but in the end everything turned out great! A mother's instinct is always right. She has occassional stomach aches when she eats something too oily or spicy. Chuck E. Cheese pizza a NO go, EVER! I have memories, BAD memories of the both of us being sick as dogs after eating pizza there. I don't think I have gone back either, even though the girls want to. Yeah, it was that bad.


Chat later!
