MIA...

Well, if you're reading this then that means you haven't given up on us completely. THANK YOU! You have no idea how much that means to me right now...seriously.

While the four of us have been MIA for a little while, I just wanted to say that we finally get to move into our rental home on Monday. YIPPEE!! Once are moved in and settled, I really hope to get back into a routine that will allow me to post more regularly. Until then, don't lose faith in us. We may be absent from the blogging/virtual world, but we have kept each of you close in our thoughts.

Take care!! (and please pray that we have a DRY moving day on Monday...as much as I love the rain, that would not be a good day for a storm to break loose).

New Years in AZ...

For New Year's, we spent a week in Arizona at Doug's sister's house...it was especially fun, because everyone on the Hoopes side was out there for it. We had a New Year's eve party, where the kids exchanged cousins gifts and the adults exchanged DI gifts and had an ugly sweater contest. It was hilarious (especially my wicked, cool dance moves) - and we all had a lot of fun ringing in the new year.
While we were out there, we also managed to get some family pictures (thank you Bethany and Brandon), but since I don't have access to any of those at the moment, I'll share the candid shots (a.k.a. amateur) I snapped with my camera.

Christmas Pics...

As promised, here are some pics from our Christmas morning/day/festivities...I still haven't figured out how to get the videos to upload, so these photos will have to suffice for now.

Scraps for the New Year...

It's been a while, well over a month, since I posted any scrap pages {gasp}...so bear with me as I share the latest of my scrapping habit (sorted from least to most recent). During December, FPD offered a free template every day....so most of the pages were created with those. While the free templates are no longer available, there are plenty of other freebies at the site you should check out if you have a free moment.
