Happy New Year

We had another busy year 
Everyone says that right? 
I’ll quickly hit the highlights and let you keep moving with your own busy life! ;)

The Hubs is still at the lumber yard.  He has been with the company for 15 years now.  
He is keeping very busy working on building our new home!!!  
He still tries to fit in golf whenever he can. 

Suzi is in her 2nd year of being a k-12 art teacher in a small rural school.  
She and her friend have started teaching painting classes/parties. 
She is also excited to start working on the “fun stuff” in decorating their new home.

S is a Sophomore in High School.  
He is probably the busiest of us all.  
Between football, wrestling, track, lifting, camps, working, 
and fitting in time for friends an family he is always busy!  
He is doing great in school and we are super proud of him.

The oldest cowgirl is a 1st grader and is excelling in school!  
She loves to read.  she is becoming quite the talented artist!  
This year she started  gymnastics and basketball.  
She is also helping mom decorate the new home and is excited to have her own room soon.

The little cowgirl started preschool this year.  
She is having a great time and enjoying it very much.  
She loves her animals and to be outside.  
She is excited to be a “big kid”.  
This year she finally gets to go to church on Wednesdays nights and gymnastics 
with her sister. 

God Bless You,

step parenting {the blend}

I love being a step parent.
I honestly believe that having a bonus child is just that, A BONUS!
This video is a must watch...WOW
The biological parents are a great example!!!
I feel as if we have a similar situation and unfortunately this is not the norm.

CHRISTmas time

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones.  
WE SURE DID, although we are not done yet.  
We have another celebration tomorrow.  
Since I am a procrastinator we headed to town to pick up a few things for tomorrow.
The girls insisted I pull over and take their annual picture by the display at the town square!  
I love this tradition and I love that they look forward to it going up every year!!!!  
Before we left the littlest cowgirl had to clean the snow off of baby Jesus! 
Tonight I took the cowgirls sledding.  
I didn't get any photos tho!  
I chose to not take my phone (I didn't want the distraction!)
The Hubs and S worked over at the new house all day.
I hope to check in next week and do an update on the blog with the house progress!!! 
So come back next week and check it out!!!!

Merry Christmas
~ Suzi
