What have I been up to???

Well let me just say that when you do not have BLOG on the brain you can get a lot accomplished. I have to say that it feels rather AWESOME to be caught up on things like:

Reading my Bible plus...
Cleaning out closets
Taking down Christmas decorations
Cleaning out my car
Cleaning out my office
Downloading all my pictures from PC to CD for safe keeping
Grocery shopping
Talking to Children and Husband...wink wink =)

I do have a couple of things to post and I will have to see where I go from there...I miss you all terribly I am catching up on comments!

Favorite Picture from taking the boys to Disney on Ice...This was the Lion King portion...FUN!

Jaxon's 1st Hockey game of the season and yes, you guessed it Masons 1st attempt at trying something fun (other than watching brothers game).....hopefully this is NOT a precursor of what is to come! (Behind bars that is..)

Next, we took our boys to something here in Minneapolis called Hollidazzle. It is a parade of lights that is put on every year. The kids LOVE it, I LOVE it when I can sit in the sky way with a warm Starbucks....this year we did BOTH...Outside and inside.

Macy's also does an 8th floor show every year. This year it was Santa's Elves. It is always free so this is something that we LOVE to take the kids to.

Here are a couple of my favorite pictures..

Well, there you have it...about 2 weeks worth of a REALLY REALLY LONG post!
I am just now downloading from Christmas so I will have some really cute pics when I get that done.

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and Blog at you soon!

Cute backdrop & those pictures were great. I wish I could say that I have my Christmas decorations down and my closets clean. Yikes...I better get on that train for sure. Great post!

Good for you. I'm dreading taking down the Christmas tree. I'm supposed to have a playdate with a pal on Tues but that would be only a few hours so how's your Tuesday looking? Coop wants to play football with Jaxon-surprise, surprise and Q wants Mason to come play. This winter break is flying by for sure.

Nice to see you back. It looks like you guys had a great Christmas and the boys are so cute with the hockey! I am giving myself a time limit on blogging so I can get some stuff done too. Speaking of which, times up! Off to clean!

One of my favorite friends ever lives in Minnesota too...Chaska. When we come up, we will have to give you a shout! Much love, my friend. Happy New Year to you!
