The Olympics

I just had to post how excited I am about the opening ceremonies tonight and the start of the winter Olympics. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Olympics. I know that my TV viewing is going up 10 fold until they are over. I am excited to share this with my children, especially my 6 year old. It is so interesting to see the world come together to compete in all sorts of athletic events!

Hello again...Sorry I've been gone so long. The holidays consumed all my time. We were blessed to have my sister and brother-in-law join us for the holidays. It was GREAT!

This week my son turns 2. TWO! I can hardly believe that it has been 2 years already. It seems like just yesterday I was pregnant and walking into the hospital for my C-section. He is such a joy and a real chatter box these days. He is the happiest kid and with a very independent mind. He was in the bedroom yesterday and he looked at me and said "Bath, now!" I had to chuckle at his insistence for a bath.

At the end of the month my daughter turns 7. SEVEN!!! This is even more difficult to believe. She is quickly completing the 1st grade and she is a smart wonderful little girl! She is also very independent minded, but she has an exceptionally kind heart. After hearing about another family member exchanging presents for donations to a charity, she thought that sounded like a good idea and has decided for her 7th birthday that she would rather have donations to Stand Up for Kids.

I am so blessed to have two wonderful children and a wonderful husband! What a great blessing...more than any amount of money can even buy!
