Where am I?

Perhaps this title should read..."Who am I?" or "Where have I been?" I've been pretty schizophrenic in that I have 2 blogs - and I am not doing such a great job at keeping up with either of them. This one was mainly for my personal, family life and the other started out to be for my soap business, but it keeps evolving into something else...I'm not sure what.

So...for the time being, I will be pulling myself together and blogging over at Cranberry Cottage. (Cranberry Cottage being the name of my almost defunct soap business.) I've been on a 4 month hiatus over there, but have plans to get crackin' once again. We shall see...

Extension Group 2009-2010

This is the group of college kids that come from Northland every week to help out in our church. We are so thankful for them. Every year we get a great group and we always hate to see them go. Yesterday was their last Sunday before a five week Christmas Break.Since my last post...which was forever ago...
Brooke and Brennan have finished up a semester at Northland (just finals to be taken this week). They both are on the basketball team & practice, games, etc. keep them busy. Joe, Bethany & Lincoln are in TN, NC & SC for the winter. I began a job at the Library in July and am working a lot more than I expected, but it's a nice place to work and the extra income has been a blessing. Scott's cranking out his last year of coaching the homeschool basketball team. It's been a fun ride, but I will be thankful when all of that traveling is over!!! Church is doing well.
I can't believe that Christmas is a week and a half away!!!!! So far, I have shipped out packages to Joe, Bethany & Lincoln, but have NONE of the rest of my shopping done! I'm waiting for Brooke to get home this weekend and then we'll pound out the shopping.
I hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas! (Is anyone out there?...I've been sooooo delinquent with this blog.)

Lincoln is thinking that staying at grandpa's for the summer may be tons of fun!!!

Sunday, March 29, 2009


We've had Shadow for thirteen years (got her on Bethany's 10th birthday). She was stone deaf for about a year, going blind, but basically still doing good until a week ago. She got very sick, didn't eat for the whole week and we finally had to bring her in to the vet yesterday and have her put down. We will miss her a lot!!!

She LOVED to go camping. She was great friends with the chipmunks at Boot Lake!!

She was a Christian dog. Here she is ministering in her favorite up the gym floor at the church after lunch. (Actually she is helping us get ready for Bethany's wedding here.)

She sat in on a few Senior Picture photo shoots (for Brooke & Brennan, anyway...what's up with that? She was supposed to be Bethany's dog).

She HATED water in general, and getting a bath in particular.

She didn't quite understand the family picture thing...just look at her face!!

She made Scott believe that she enjoyed all the things he did to her. Not so sure about that...

...but she did enjoy Scott.

Lots of good times!!!!

Lincoln may look like daddy, but he has his mommy's eyes!
Same blue, same lazy right eye. ;)
Super cute!!!!!

A Good Time Was Had By All

I spent a week in Orlando with my mom & sisters. We made it to Daytona Beach, Magic Kingdom & Epcot...along with some serious time hanging out at the pool. It was in the mid-upper 80s while we were there...35 when we got home. :(
I think I could have used another week!!!!!
