I did not win

While I was looking at all the awesome pictures that won the contest.  They had a section in the back called Best of the Rest - My Tulip picture was one of them!!!!  I almost wet myself.  I am still trying to find the link for the pictures online.  As soon as I do I will post it.

Waiting too see

I stepped outside of the box for me.  I entered a photo contest!!  With my husbands encouragement I did it. 
Here are the photo's we decided on.  I have to admit I am very proud of them.  The local paper has this contest every year.  Last year they had 1,700 entry's.  Well they will announce the winner on Feb. 19 and I can hardly wait.  They will be posting all the entry on their web site.

This was taking in Washington State at a tulip farm

This is from my 1st Polo game.

This was taken at EPCOT

            I do not know where to start; I cannot believe that I have let time slip by.  Now that I am not longer working it seems to go by faster then I remember.  I was working at the beginning of the year; I started having a rash on my hands that was getting worse every month. After a lot of time in prayer, God had me quite because he has something better out there planned for me.  Not sure what it is yet, but he will let me know when the time is right.   Well I still have the rash – but is 80% better.  I do more volunteering at our church now and we both have such a peace over it all. 

I have been playing more with my digital scrapbooking and been having so much fun.  I have found lots of new AWESOME site for kits and ideas.

Here are some of the new places that I have found and just love:

Kelly Bell Designs - they have lots of great kits for all your Disney pictures.

Mouse Scrappers - another great site for Disney

Trixie's Scrap Designs - another gret site

Christmas is over!!

I am so Thankful that Christmas is over - I work in a retail craft store (need I say more)!

It was wonderful having all the kids for Christmas.  Our youngest was home from Austin, Texas.  We spent more time laughing and being silly.

Here is our family photo:
on stairs: Me, Harry and Aaron (our youngest)
leaning on banister: Daylyn and his wife Dixie

 Here are the 3 most important men in my life.
