Happy 2011...

Um, 2011?!  Really?!  Where the heck is my flying car and robot named Rosie?!

Anyways...I hope you all celebrated the new year safely and have enjoyed this holiday season.  We went to visit family.  First, we stopped at my parents' house in Arkansas for a couple of days.  Then, we went to Hubby's mom's house in Minnesota.  Later, we went to Hubby's dad's house in Arkansas.  Finally, we came home.  So, basically, we spent two weeks in the truck with three kids and two dogs.  Loads of, uh, fun.

My house is now full of toys that have good batteries and make random noises at random times.  The boys also got a go-cart from Hubby's grandfather.  I have no comment about it.  I have also dubbed Christmas 2010 as "The Pajama Christmas" since we all received about 300 pairs of pajamas each.  Don't tell anyone, but I traded some of mine in on some really spectacular storage containers for my kitchen.

Anyone make New Year's resolutions?  I've decided that this is the year I learn to can things.  I'm thinking I'll start with some sort of jam or preserves.  Here's hoping I don't give my family botulism in 2011!  I also think I'll do one of the 365 photography projects.  I already took a picture today, so I'm off to a stellar start.

I hope you all had a wonderful 2010 and I wish you an even better 2011!

**Update**  I just started up a new blog to keep up with my picture project for the year.  Check it out HERE!
