I don't have a recent picture of charlie on this computer but here's one from a year ago in her Valentine outfit. She keeps us all running! She makes us laugh all the time. She has been such a joy to have in our home - and to think - we weren't going to have anymore what we would have missed out on.
This is my daughter Camille. She is so outgoing - she keeps me running all the time! She is a great student and is helpful around the house and with the baby and is involved with the youth group at church. One thing I appreciate about her is that she is not a procrastinator! This picture was taken by our neighbor who is a semi-professional photographer. He did a great job and she looks awesome!
This is my step-daughter Holly in her first prom dress. She looks terrific in that dress! She is actively involved in church and school and uses her creative juices all the time. She is very helpful around the house and taking care of the baby. She is also very smart and she is planning on a career in interior design.
So far I've lost one game out of 16. But I had them going all the way to final four. Not sure how that is going to affect my scoring because I haven't bothered with figuring out all of that scoring stuff.
I'm trying to finalize arrangements to see my oldest daughter this weekend. She really misses home, but loves it in the small town where she and her husband are living. They are doing a great work and we consider them missionaries as they are youth pastors to a small church in the area.
Camille has cheerleading tryouts today. I do hope she makes it and I also hope she doesn't get to upset if she doesn't. I hope she makes it so that she can have some extracurricular activities. She's not interested in playing an instrument which is usually my first wish but forcing that issue probably wouldn't sit well.
Not much else new to report except I'm glad the 15th has passed and I didn't have any last minute emergencies to contend with! That's always a good thing!!
I'm trying to figure out how to post pictures on this blog so that way anyone who cares can see my family. I checked out a blog of a family I know and they are some crazy kids over there!! they were hilarious photos - if you read this through Ben's blog then you know who you are! they gave me a laugh which I needed that day particularly.
I haven't posted in a while because I have been so so busy at work. OUr first major deadline of the year is March 15th. I had a really bad day yesterday. I knew it was going to be a tough day so I came into work with a smile on my face and had gotten plenty of rest the night before, but the stress still got to me by the end of the day. I knew my evening was going to be packed full too of picking up my daughter and her friends and taking them to cheerleading and then all of them back home and of course, I had the baby to contend with as well. I was so glad to get home!! I watched Dr. Phil when I got home and then went straight to bed. Whew!
I'm thinking positively and saying today will go much better! This is the day that the Lord has made!
I should make it a point to go to choir practice tonight. We really do have a great worship time even though it's practice. I think that is something really neat at our church.
We are doing something fun at work and that is doing a pool for the NCAA Basketball championship. I don't know a thing about the teams but it's fun to guess for the winner's of each bracket and then throughout the championship we track it while we are at work. We can even watch parts of the games that are played during the day on our computers! It's fun to hear the cheers in our office. then I take it home and make sure I get the lastest updates on who has won before I go to bed. My husband examines my picks and tells me all about the teams and sometimes tells me I probably should've picked the other team. He laughed when he saw who I had picked as the national Champion last year. I picked them just because I liked the way their name sounded! This year I've basically picked according to their ranking (which is on the breakdown so it's not like I'm all that smart.)
