<br /><center><a href=""><img src="" /></a></center><br />

It's here!  The 2010 Review Extravaganza!!  What?  Did you miss that post?  Well it's simple every Friday for the rest of the year we are recapping the year.  Today we are covering the months of Jan. Feb. and March.  So write up your first review of 2010 and link up here.  
Now just what exactly what was I doing in January anyway....oh could I forget....we closed on the house and had a big bang of a celebration complete with silly string!!
Aside from that big major event...I wrote a fractured fairy tale, that I am quite fond of.  You can read that here.
In Feb, I continued with those Writer's Workshops and blogged about do's and don'ts along with how I got that wicked scar.
I turned the tables on myself and let you ask the questions a…


It is alphabe-Thursday with Jenny and today's letter is:  K

As I pondered this letter, I wondered what in the world I could write about.  Then it came to me.  "Knowledge."  Knowledge is one of those tricky words that start with one letter and uses the letter next it for its sound.  How do we know that?  Because we have that knowledge.  Knowledge is a powerful thing.  It is ours to keep and it is the one thing we can continue to grow and grow.  We won't be taking our money, or our possessions with us after this life.  However, our knowledge is ours to keep forever.  And I am of the belief that we will continue to gain knowledge well beyond this life.  We only know a tiny speck of information.

When my girls were little, I used to tell them I knew everything.  Because let's face it, in the mind of a 3 and 6 year old, you have unlimited knowledge and you do in fact have all the answers.  That is only because at 3 and 6 their questions are simple and we can easily te…


Look who else was in line to see Santa in front of us.  At least her friend had more coverage.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

I was a daredevil as a child.  I loved to roller skate, ride bikes, climb trees, turn cartwheels--in the church foyer--ahem.  As a result of my stunts which were not limited to the above mentioned, I sustained a variety of injuries from sprains, strains, and broken bones.  From breaking both arms,  both bones at the same time, to breaking my leg.  It hurts to break a bone no matter what.  A tiny break or a big one.  Thankfully I never had the big and ugly breaks.  My brother and sister took care of that.  Here are some hints for you if you are not sure--I am talking about the minor breaks.  If it's ugly you will know.  Ask my mom.  She knows first hand.

1.  Bruising
2.  Swelling
3.  Or both
4.  Restless behavior (can't get comfortable)
5. way more than normal
6.  Holds the limb funny
7.  Wakes in the night from pain
8.  Can't or won't hold an object.
9.  (for legs) No weight can be put on it.  None.  I literally could not stand.  You don't limp or…

Fa La La La La La La!

I love Christmas music, possibly even more than I love my Christmas specials.  I love singing the fun songs, the silly songs, and most of all the beautiful songs of joy and praise of the birth of the Savior.  I have an album that I listen to repeatedly each year.  Christmas with The Judds.  It has a perfect blend of religious and fun.  Plus I really like their singing.  And you know I can sing it perfectly in the car as I drive down the road.

 I have so many's hard to name just a few....but I spare you all.  For the fun and merry type I love:  Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,  All I want For Christmas is My Two Front Teeth, I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, The Chipmunks Christmas Song--it's Alvin...I just love him.  Haha.  And then there this is little gem.

On the more grown up side of things, but not yet in the spiritual part I love:  The Christmas Song (sung only by Nat King Cole, cause let's face it, he sang it best!) White Christmas (Bing Crosby…
