it's 2011 already!

The silence on this blog is deafening!  Wow!  It's been a long time (it seems) since I've last posted anything on here.
   As some of you know, the kids and I were able to fly to Kansas to visit my family for Christmas.  We rose early Christmas morning to meet the plane in order to get into Wichita around 11:30 that morning.  No one knew were were coming.  We surprised them for Christmas and it was so fun!  
   James wasn't able to come with us as he has been putting in long hours at the new office here.  His long hours allowed for us to make the trip, financially, to visit my family.  I am blessed to have such a selfless husband since he was all alone Christmas day.
   I have many pictures I have yet to edit from our trip, but here are just a few to whet your appetites.  I am so happy that we were able to see all these dear faces.

Naomi, in the plan on the way to Grammy and Grandad's.

 My Grandma. I just love her.
 Mom and Liv chatting it up....or maybe they're saying how annoying I am with the camera....
