Yo !, originally uploaded by Sky-Genta.
Okay, so to start my 2011 blog book, I need to back-up a bit (what we from Louisiana call "crawfishin'") and transfer a couple of posts. Many of you have already seen these on the old site, but I gotta do it for the book. There will be some new pictures soon enough!

Reality has hit . . .

Okay, I finally did it!  I moved to a new blog site.  The whole reason for having a site in the first place was to share our daily and special happenings with family and friends far away.  The reality that we live far, far away from loved ones hit long ago, but I was still living in an apparent dream world. (well, kinda . . .)  See, I have been wanting to create blog books for quite some time now.  The reality of not having the time to properly scrapbook hit a while back as well.  My favorite site for creating books, Blurb, only accepts a handful of blog sites for what they call Blog to Book.  (an amazingly easy process . . . so I'm told)  I have been hanging onto the hope that they will add my old blog site to their list.  Well folks, I don't think it's gonna happen. (at least, not anytime soon)  So, after almost 5 years of blog posts on the old site, I'm changing over! Many more reality moments to come! (and pictures too!)

A Berry Good Time . . .

Adison had a blast at her birthday!  She was proudly sporting the strawberry mustache!  We had a few family and friends over for some girly fun!

4 years old!

Here are a few more of my big girl's pictures!  I loved how they turned out and how much they show her personality!  I hope to get some party pics posted a little later!! I had so much fun with her party. (strawberry shortcake)

While we were walking around the lake, a huge, beautiful swan came near us wanting some food!  Adison wanted to pet it so bad!

Our little Strawberry!

Adison turns 4 tomorrow!!! And boy does she love Strawberry Shortcake.  I found this adorable hat and just had to have it for her 4 yr pics!  An awesome lady named Cathy made and you can find more at the link above!  We've got a big day planned for this big girl tomorrow.  More to come . . .

There's no place like home . . .

I've had several people ask about pictures of our new house.  They will be coming soon! We are still getting settled in and have various projects that are taking longer than expected. (such as . . .  removing wallpaper!!!!!!)  We are thankful beyond words for how God has worked things out in His own timing!

Snow Days!

We had record breaking weather here in Texas this past week.  CRAZY COLD!! Wind chills in the NEGATIVE numbers!! I'm not a fan of the cold at all.  The worst part was everything was shut down and we pretty much stayed put for 4 days straight.  I had to work on the 5th day which gave me an excuse to get out of the house!  It took me 2.5 times my normal commute, but I made it safe and sound. After all was said and done, we were especially thankful for the manditory down-time!  Everyone needs it now and again.  We washed lots of clothes, camped out by the warmth from the fire place, drank many cups of hot chocolate, watched many, many movies, played board games, provided showers for friends with frozen water pipes, and loved just being home with our family! The snow is now gone and the sun is shining. (however, there is more snow forcasted for this week)  Here are a few of our fun pics from the week!  I have some funny video as well and want to try to make a Snow Movie for the girls. (we'll see how that goes :) ) 

Steven had to bring Adison home from church yesterday while I was at work.  Poor thing was sick and pretty pittiful looking, but she bounced right into my room early this morning.  I'm praying that will be all the
sickness we'll have around here for a while. 
Hope this week finds everyone well and warm!
