I don't have any digital images of me as a child...and I've given up on trying to use my scanner...so most of my pictures are within the past few years when I finally got a digital camera...
Sooooo....here's some tidbits about me, myself, and I....
~I have six children...yes, 6.
~I recently turned 35, and am trying to cover all my silver hairs (I have MANY). Although, as my mom would say....I've earned every gray hair!
~When I make family recipes...I think about my mom and grandma...always. Maybe this is why we have chicken noodle soup all the time!
I took an art class to fulfill a degree requirement, then I fell in love with oil painting. It relaxes me, and helps me to be more patient I think.
~I love spending time outdoors with the family. Even though it takes me a while to get moving in the morning, I'm always happy when I'm outside enjoying the fresh air.
~My favorite thing to do with friends is having BBQ's. I'm a pretty casual person, and nothing beats a good ole' BBQ! Below is our good friends from California that we miss so much.
~My heart melts when my husband plays with the kids every day.
~Nothing makes me smile faster than my little man.
~My kids are probably the goofiest, silliest, and most dramatic around. I was SUPER shy as a child so I don't know how not one of my children isn't shy!
~I recently moved to Colorado, and we are LOVING the weather here! It's so beautiful!
~I love it when my kids ask me to do something "cool" for them! (Does that make me a cool mom?)
My son broke his arm a year ago, and asked me to paint a picture of a Halo character on his cast.
~I love watching my kids achieve their goals. My oldest son is very aware of my feelings, and will give me a hug if he thinks I'm getting frustrated or sad. He melts my heart each time.
~I hate cockroaches and cannot kill them unless the Raid sprays 20 feet. But I can squash a spider without even thinking about it (unless it's a Black Widow...that's a different story...I have goosebumps just thinking about it!)
~I don't have a favorite color, but I love wearing red.
~I love my kids to death...but I hate grocery shopping with them.
~I was a lifeguard and swim coach for several years before I got married.
~I wish I could sing and play the guitar.
~I can play the piano and violin though!
~I got to play for President Reagan when I was in the 9th grade.
~I'm terrified of heights. And I don't like stairs.
~I have 5 brothers, and 2 sisters.
~I could spend all day in a craft store.
~I usually listen to talk radio while in the car (I think this came from my dad).
~I like country music (yes I do!). But I also love other music, except rap and heavy metal!
~My husband thinks I'm a size 6. (grin!)
~I'm looking forward to a trip to Hawaii in a couple of years.
~My New Year's resolution is to get organized.
Do you want me to go on? Just kidding...I'm not THAT exciting!
I hope you all have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
