Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear BLOGGY! Happy Birthday to YOU!!!!
Can you believe I've been blogging for 1 year?? I can't! But in other ways it seems like I've been doing this my whole life. I love the idea that I'm chronicling my families' life. I love to scrapbook, but I just can't seem to find time to do this anymore...maybe someday. But at least now that I'm blogging I can write down these stories so that I won't forget. I love looking back and reading what my kiddos were up to, and rereading my "Thankful Thursdays" posts are a great way to remember my blessings even on the tough days. (Gotta get back to doing those TT posts!!) Through my blog I've 'met' some wonderful women. I've read that I'm not alone when my kiddos misbehave. I'm not alone in my blessings, either. God has blessed so many of us with so many blessings...it's so fun to read about others' blessings, and to cheer them when they have tough days. This blog has also made a great way to connect with long lost family and friends. My parents get nervous and call to check on me if I haven't posted in a few days. My sister-in-law in North Dakota even checks once-in-a-while. I have an awesome cousin, Loni, who has begun her own blog about her family. I hadn't seen or spoken to Loni much in the past few years (no problems, just life kept getting in the way!)...but now I check out what she is doing at least a few times a week, and I know she reads my blogs and leaves me little notes. I have aunts and uncles all over the state that read my blog...though they don't leave nearly enough comments!! :o) Come back soon...I have many blog posts swirling around in my head...here are some teasers!
