Catching Up

 Hi. I've started half a dozen blog posts, but just can't seem to finish them. I'm not sure why. We have been thoroughly enjoying our beautiful Michigan winter. I love the snow, especially with our new, amazing back yard. I feel so lucky to be here in this wonderful home. Seriously it's beyond perfect and I'm still not sure how we ended up here. There were so many variables, everything just fell together, or truthfully apart, perfectly and here we are. There is this great tiny stream out there that we hike to occasionally, it's breathtaking in the snow, but I doubt we'll be able to get to it come spring. I think it's mostly swamp all around in wet weather.

We had an amazing time on our annual snowboarding trip, thanks again mom and dad. This year we opted to go for an entire week and rent a big house so we could all hang out together. It was lots of fun and the kids are really becoming decent boarders, thanks to Unkie. He is so very patient with them. Not to mention quite talented. Since we got back the snowman/snow fort building has ceased and kicker construction has replaced it. Of course the kids are just as happy to ride their snowboards like sleds once in a while too.

Sadly though, I did not get many great photos and my camera met it's demise at the top of the mountain. Yes, not only did I unknowingly drop the camera, I then proceeded to jump on it a few times while strapped into my snowboard completely burying it in the snow and smashing the screen. It will still take photos, but they all have this one weird fuzzy spot off to the side and the viewfinder and screen are toast, so I have no idea what exactly I'm photographing. At least I have a decent phone for once so I'm not completely without a camera.

I hope to be back soon with a kitchen table makeover that we did before we started packing up last summer and maybe even a sewing tutorial, if I can figure out how to get some halfway decent photos.
