Hello 2009!

Holy Cow~ it has been almost a month since a blog! What is wrong with me? Well, I have made excuses over and over again (they have been legitimate) but this time- NO excuses, just some catching up!!! We have been extremely busy through the holidays, but we loved every minute with everyone! Then last weekend a great friend of mine, Lacey, got married. Montana and I were both in the wedding.

My teacher certification classes ended Jan. 2nd (can I hear a HALLELUJAH!) Now, I have to get in my 5 days of observations this spring, and pass the TeXes Exam. Surely if I can endure 16 weeks of an online course, I can manage this! Sometimes I feel overwhelmed, but I just have to sit back and take a deep breath and know that GOD is in control, not me!

For Christmas the girls got a new registered chocolate and white border collie. Her new name is "Sadie," and both girls love her. She has turned into rollie pollie. I will have to take some pictures of her! Levi and I didn't exchange gifts, we were saving for new wood blinds in the living room, dining room, and kitchen~ and tomorrow night we are going to look for them!!! :)

At work, we have been building new offices (which be be so cool when they are done) so it has been pretty hectic along with the new year. We also got new computers and will be installing a new software program. Everything all at once!!

I will leave you with some pictures I took of the girls in the past few days and the pictures I had on my camera from the wedding. I have lots of Christmas pictures to post including pictures from my Mom's house and Todd and Sheri and their kids! Until then, enjoy the overloaded post!!
