Back To Blogging!


I'm back :)  It's a new year, so I decided it's time to stop neglecting my poor blog & get back into posting.  I was kinda scared when 2013 came because I was actually a little sad to see 2012 end.  2012 was a pretty good year for us....I had no complaints, really.  We finally starting seeing our granddaughter again :), both of our kids moved out & we are empty-nesters for the first time ever!  Since I already had Shawn when we got married, we never had any real alone time, so this is all new to us.  And so far, we're liking it!  Although I will admit, I do get a little lonely sometimes during the day.  But then I sit here, relaxing in the quiet of my home & realize, this ain't so bad after all, lol!

We had a WONDERFUL Christmas this year! We got to have both of our kids here & they spent the night on Christmas Eve & we played Uno & got a little toasted.  Then we woke up & saw that Santa came so we opened our presents & afterwards, I made breakfast.  Later we had ham for dinner & went to see the movie This Is 40.  While the movie did have some funny parts to it, they could have cut about 45 minutes of boring parts out of it!  

New Year's Eve was also really nice.  Shawn & his boyfriend came over & the 4 of us played Uno all night & ate jello & pudding shots :)  They spent the night because I wasn't going to let either of them drive!  

The above picture was taken on Christmas Day....it's the first family picture we've had taken in YEARS!  I'm definitely going to be framing this one!  

That's all for now....my goal is to get back into blogging at least once a week.  Hope I still have some readers out there :)

Happy New Year,
Benita

glad to see you back blogging, I plan to do that for 2013 as well... I read an article where it said would you rather scream to a room of 10,000 (Facebook) or have a quiet dinner party with close friends (blog) - i think I want to get back to the dinner parties! Great family picture and can't wait to hear more about your year!
