Yes, it really has been a year. I could say that I have been too busy living life to post about it but I will not go there. The past year has had it’s share of ups and downs, mostly ups:)
Not to worry, I won’t try to recap a whole year. I didn’t really think that anyone read my posts here until I started getting emails from friends and family. Fortunately my flickr feed is current so at least there is a record of the past year in pictures, and you know what they say about pictures.
Life has been a roller coaster over the last few weeks. Kids definitely keep you busy during the holidays. There is the whole gift giving thing while trying to teach them the true meaning behind the holiday. For many people the new year signifies a new beginning, a chance to wash yourself clean of the previous year. I have no resolutions this year I plan to go with the flow and enjoy the ride.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!
I would like to take a moment to give thanks for all of the people and things that make my life so fucking awsome. I am thankful for friends past and present those that are here and those that have passed on. I am thankful for my family both immediate and extended. I am thankful for a life full of surprises, joy, and contentment. I am thankful for what is yet to come. I am thankful for experiences past. I am thankful for my three beautiful children and my bad ass husband. Everyone always asks me why I am always so happy, well if you had the kick ass full of adventure life that I do, you would walk around with a smile on your face too.
I am thankful for true friends that make my life sparkle. I am thankful for false friends because without you I would never know how truly fortunate I am. I realize that some people can’t help being a dark cloud and their only joy comes from spreading misery. It is my sincere wish that that these people find what they are so desperately searching for.
Be happy, be alive, be joyful, be thankful. Don’t forget to spread it around.
So, it’s been a while. October is turning out to be a busy month and I am finding myself having to turn down invitations to one event just so that I can attend another. The stress level is pretty low so I can’t really complain. We all went to Muir Woods today. This was Amelie’s first real hike and she was a little trooper. We didn’t hike all the way to Stinson Beach but I predict that by next spring all three kids will be up for the hike. I have pics that I will upload to Flikr tomorrow.
You can’t tell by looking at this picture, but we are very sunburned. We went to the 49ers opening game and it turned out to be a veeeerrrry warm day. Good times!!!
Amelie celebrated her 2nd birthday last week. We had a small party at home. Since turning 2 she has been putting sentences together and becoming more and more independant. They grow so fast!!!!!!!!
A week in the country is just what the doctor ordered. The kids spent half of the time outdoors and the other half was spent being spoiled by family. I didn’t use my cell phone at all and the computer stayed at home.
Our days were spent horseback riding, canoeing, swimming in Indian creek and sipping iced tea. Now thats what I call a vacation.
