bigger than life

Where have i been for the last few months...?
Experiencing some writing/sharing brain freeze and unlike my usual routine I have been doing some traveling : )
I've been to Washington and back a few times, went to BOTH Mark and Angela's graduations, injured my back, hosted Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day(and I do mean hosted...we housed 8 people for a week!) and after that I needed a vacation! So hubby and I went to the Calaveras Big Trees in California.

Here are some of the sights we saw that were bigger than life...
Yep...that's me

Yep...that's hubby! These trees were HUGE!

A car could drive through this space

Beautiful trails to walk on

So, it's January 2012 and in 5 more month's Angela & Jon will be getting married home at the farm, so I imagine more traveling and business is in order to get ready for that wonderful occasion.

Angela is now a credentialed teacher and subbing like crazy. Her heart was lost to the primary age children and hopes to get a full-time 1st-3rd grade class of her own.

Mark is a Certified Respiratory Therapist and applying at local hospitals. Yes, he made it all the way through the program and to think that his horrible car accident a few years ago was the means to launch a career.

I am a proud Momma : )

I miss writing/sharing, so will try to be more diligent. I think 2012 is going to be a year of priceless memories for my growing family...ah, bliss
