With the coming of warm and sunny days, March is bringing an end to this long winter. It seems as if each winter gets a bit longer, and with the many snowy, white, bone-chilling days we have had this winter season it seemed to go on a long time!

March also brought Carson’s 4th birthday…my how quickly the time passes! He has glasses now and he such a cute boy in them!

We are planning a trip to Chicago for a few days in April. Planning out our vacations this summer, one will be to Kansas before Matt and Sherry make their move and possibly one to Florida. Just making plans for the spring and summer months helps to herald in the feeling of spring!

We still are so enjoying our Wii and the Wii fit and now the Wii Personal Trainer. What great exercise we get from it and what fun we have with it! Best investment we have made! Also, every day at work during lunch a group of us get together and do a 1 mile workout dvd, usually one of Leslie Sanson’s walking work outs. I also try to fit one in the evenings and now trying to fit one in the mornings before work…which is a challenge!

Enjoying Facebook with the people I am know getting to know again. Finding old lost friends is wonderful and reminiscing over memories is so fun!

Posting pics of my cubie “home” at work.


What a long and cold and white winter this has been. There is much longing for warmth, greenery and the multi-hues of flowers blooming!! We are contemplating a trip to the Tenn. mountains for spring break. We are still in the “thinking about”. We just need a get-away vacation!

I was a regular on Myspace, but since becoming more familiar with Facebook, have transferred over. The wonderful part about it is I have found some long lost friends. Teri a friend from school years at Waverly, lived behind me in the same neighborhood and have also found a dear friend from College, Bill, who was also in our wedding and haven’t seen him since Olivet years. How wonderful to reconnect and share friendships again!

Will be posting new pictures soon. I just purchased a new camera to replace the one that quit working. This one takes much better pictures, so hopefully will have some good ones to post soon.

Oh and a new site I found that is a hoot: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/ . She has a lot of good down-home recipes! Her site includes other ramblings as well…

My 2nd Post of the Day1

Kaytlynn and Carson Christmas 2008

Happy 2009!!!

A new year has begun….here in Michigan it’s brisk and the ground is covered in a powdery white. Wayne and I are so enjoying our time off together! Even with me fighting a cold, the breakfasts out, some afternoons at the coffee shop, the strolls at the mall and our lazy afternoons at home are wonderful. Oh and can’t forget the intense, fun and continual competition on the Wii. I do have to admit I am winning more than losing….to Wayne’s sometimes funny frustration. We have enjoyed our down time together!

We had a wonderful Christmas with the whole family gathered together! Having the grandchildren here was extra special too, it brought a special magic to Christmas morning!

Wishing all a wonderful, healthy and blessed New Year!
