Some of my projects ...

Please be patient with my as I try to get this blog exactly how I would like it to look.
I am still waiting for the best header and color combination I can make/find.
Things will likely be changed up a bit in this process.

A Few Changes...

I made a few changes. Variety in life is a good thing.

So Much for More Time huh?

So now that it's been more than a month since I last updated my blog, you might be wondering what happened to all that extra time I was going to be getting. Well, I did get it but it just so happened to start right before the busy holiday and I still haven't really had any extra time to breathe. It has been good though. I get to be home in the evenings with my family a lot more now and I have really enjoyed that. The problem is just that the evenings have been full of other things needing to be done. I obviously haven't had much time for blogging and I certainly haven't had much time for scrapping. I am seriously missing my scrap room lately. I walk in every once in a while just to stare around and enjoy it for a minute.

Am I too optimistic to hope that after the holidays I will have a little more time in the evenings to do the things I want to do instead of all of the stuff that has to be done? I seriously miss reading blogs and writing in mine. I do still occasionally get to read blogs but it comes in little snippets of time and I usually don't ever have time to leave comments.

Scrapping is what I really miss though. My daughter is now 9 months old and I only have 3 pages done for her book. That is really pathetic! I always told myself I wouldn't allow my second child to have less pictures than the first one and all that jazz. Yeah, well, life kind of gets in the way sometimes. The poor girl just happened to be born right before we move and dad goes back to school. We've still been taking a lot of pictures but they just don't get printed or scrapped right now.

Enough of what's not happening. So here' s what is happening. Nyah has been crawling now for about a month or so. She's standing up everytime she can find something to lean against. There's even been a time or two when we've seen her let go and stand on her own for a few seconds. We're assuming it won't be long before she's walking. She's getting plenty of teeth and she eats like there's no tomorrow.

Auryn is the same as usual. Full of attitude one minute and totally sweet the next. I guess that's a typical three year old huh? He's so smart and he does very well with letters and numbers. He's learning how to read small words, write letters, and do basic math. He loves to learn new things!

We are all excited right now for Christmas. My mom is coming to spend a little over a week with us during the holiday. My work schedule worked out so that I will have 5 straight days to be home with her while I'm on holiday break from school. It will be very nice.

School is going well but it keeps me busy. I start a new class in January that focuses on legal terminology. I'm expecting this class to require a lot more of my time for homework and study than the English class I just finished required of me. I'm not looking forward to that.

My wife is supportive as ever and is Super-stellar Mom. There's no way I could get through any of this without her. How did I ever get so lucky?

Thank you again for supporting me and checking by periodically. I really am hoping to be posting more often soon. Maybe with a little luck I'll even be able to start posting on message boards again too!

Thanks again!
