Christopher's Christening

This post is me officially meeting my goal and blogging before the week ends! Woo Hoo!

Over Labor Day weekend, we went to Ft. Hood, Texas to spend the weekend with family. John's brother (Paul) and his family is currently stationed there. The special occasion was the Christening of our nephew, Christopher. John and I are very blessed to be the Godparents to sweet Christopher.

To see the pictures, check out my album on Picassa.

It was great to see everyone all together and spend time as a family. The nephews were fun to watch together in action and Christopher brought a smile to everyone.

I cannot wait until the next get together!

New Post?

I find myself again the position of blogging about NOT blogging when I have stuff to blog about (yah, I know I used that word too many times). I could give you a list of excuses. What's the point?

The bottom line is that I need to just get to it. So why aren't I writing about those things, instead writing an excuse? Well, I have to get my photos together. Most of the time, I need a visual to go along with my post. I could tell you about some of the food or products that I have made, but it will not be useful unless you can see a visual element.

I guess I could try and think of things to blog about without visuals, but the blog might just turn into a gripe session. I am not sure that would be interesting to anyone, but me. If even that. I have topics to gripe about, but that is not the point of this blog.

My goal is to get my act together by the end of this week (Sunday at 11:59 pm) with some type of a blog with a visual or a link to a visual. Let's see if I can accomplish my goal.

Helena's Visit

It has been a while since I have blogged. This is not because I do not have stuff to blog about. Other things have been taking up my time.

My brother, his wife, and their daughter (David, Rhea, and Helena) came to visit at the end of July/beginning of August and I FINALLY got around to posting the pictures from their visit. I am not sure why it has taken me so long.

The visit was interesting and there was a bit of drama, but all I care to remember or take away from the visit is Helena. She is the sweetest little girl I know. She is loving, funny, easy going, and happy. What more could I ask for in a little niece?

I see so much of myself in her that at times I felt like I was looking into a mirror of me as a baby. When out in public, people came up to me and asked me questions about "my daughter." They were surprised when I said she was not my child. I probably enjoyed this more than I should have. :)

My brother and his wife are so blessed to have such a wonderful little girl. She has brought so much joy to me, my parents, and my brother and his wife. I love her to pieces!
