We had our family Christmas yesterday. It was so much fun as usual. It's tradition that we take a family photo to mark the day. It's fun to look back on the different pictures. The family continues to grow as the grandchildren become adults. It's fun to watch.

Electronic Cigarette

Growing up I can remember my dad enjoying a good cigar. He also liked to roll cigarettes and smoked a pipe some. I'm sure he would have tried an electronic cigarette also. It would probably be a cheaper way to smoke. The things they can come up with these days.

Israel and Daddy

Our son Josh and his newest addition to the family, Israel! What a little sweetie he is! It's such a blessing to have them here with us!

Admin Jobs

With the economy the way it has been looking lately, many are out searching for jobs. Those use to working in an office atmosphere may be looking at admin jobs and clerical type work. It is sad to see so many losing jobs and their homes at the same time. What a struggle some have had to endure. I pray that the future is brighter.

Disposable Shoe Covers

Living where the weather is so unpredictable can be a challenge at times. It takes a lot of clothes and protective gear. My husband and son went out today to play in the snow with our grandson. It almost took longer to get them ready to go out then the time spent out there. When going to work a person can use disposable shoe covers. They are easy and quick.

Christmas Cards

I love this time of year! Everyday I go to the mailbox and have new Christmas Cards from old friends and family. It's so much fun to see and catch up with so many. This was a card from our daughter and her family. It turned out so cute!

Online University

When I was in college we didn't have anything like online colleges. Now the sky is the limit, and students are able to continue their education while still having a job. My son is one who did this and it worked out perfectly for him to get his online degree. He was able to get his masters while still working full time. How great is that?! Recently I came across Western Governors Online University which is an online option for those looking to further their education. It's definitely a school I'd recommend to my youngest son as they have programs there to get an online IT degree...right up his alley! I think it's terrific that there is an option like Wester Governors Online University for students looking to further their education online.

Too Much Snow

This past week we got a whopper of a snow storm. There were parts of the state that got well over a foot of snow. I don't know exactly how much we received but it was too much. I am not much of a winter fan. I have asked myself many times why we live in a state that gets such winter weather. I am guessing we will stay here but, it would be nice to have nice weather all of the time.

Cancun All Inclusive

Most people enjoy traveling some. Especially in the winter months when a person is tired of the snow and cold temps. A Cancun All Inclusive is sounding pretty good about now. The Mexico Riviera Maya is an awesome location! There you can find the KARISMA Resorts. They have five different types to chose from. The El Dorado Seaside Suites- Riviera Maya is on the secluded white sand beach of Kantenah. You can go relaxed and casual. It is an adults only resort and offers amazing gourmet food. The decor is a mélange of Mexican and contemporary style. They have swim-up Jacuzzi Suites and more. Travel, kick back and relax Karisma style!

My grandsons are best buddies. Emry is now a big brother and is loving it! He and Israel are like two peas in a pod. Emry's going to make sure he's OK. He'll be watching over him. :)

Exam Table

I think that most people do not enjoy a doctor visit. There's the exam table, sterile smells and a serious doctor staring at you. We all know that it is very necessary at times however. It seems more difficult to get my husband to go as he should though. Do you think that follows true for most men? Take care of you bodies, they are the only one you will have.

Dolan Designs Lighting

We have had a great time transforming our home this past year or so. We use to have a strong country look and now have gone for more of a contemporary modern style. Dolan Designs lighting has many choices on light fixtures etc... I Love picking up ideas from a number of sources. It has been a lot of work, but well worth our time spent.
