The last few weeks...

I had no idea my short little break from blogging to have uninterrupted family time would have lasted so long. Needless to say we had a wonderful Christmas and New Years. This past week I struggled big time getting back into the routine of things, but I think I am finally back. Her are a few iPhone snapshots from the last few weeks. The kiddos and I did tons of fun projects and baked like crazy for family and neighbors the week of Christmas. Since the Mr. is a creative pastor/director at a rather large church he is normally MIA for a few weeks till Christmas. I always try to make that time with the kiddos extra special. The week after Christmas the Mr. took some time off and we went to New Orleans for a few days. We had a blast! Ellie moved up to a more challenging horse for lessons. She was quite excited to mix things up a bit. The shop did great over the holidays and I thank you all for that. We also shot our last wedding of the year on New Years eve, which we have yet to post. Whew, we were busy, busy. Every year I pick a word to represent the upcoming year. Last year was simplicity and this year I am going with GRATITUDE. I will delve more into that in an upcoming post. Hope you all had a wonderful holidays!!!
