I am still around...

Wow, where does time go?  It has been ages since I last posted here.  I've just been busy with life and even though I stopped in many times to write a post I just didn't do it.  Call it lazy, busy, bored, not that into it I"m not really sure.  I think mainly because I just don't have a lot to write about that when I do get in here it's like "what do I post?" 

I am starting to babysit for my daughter next week.  Everett has turned 1 today (Happy Birthday Ev) and that means it is time for mommy to head back to work.  Actually, she took a weeks holidays already so she extended her mat leave.  So I will be spending most of my days over there and not so sure how much computer time I will have after that, coming home and getting dinner ready and doing anything that needs to be done here at home before heading to bed.  It will be fun spending time with Ev though and on monday, wednesday and friday I will also have Hannah too.  Not sure if I will be watching Keira after school or not but really when you think of it her daddy will be home anyways by the time we get home from school most likely.

Krystal has started working at a new job which for the most part I think she enjoys it!  Seems like a good place to work and she has gotten lots of perks with the job which is GREAT too.  Good luck Krystal!  You will do awesome!

As for my knitting, I"m working on a pair of Thigh High Socks for my daughter (shhhh dont' tell yep she picked them out so she knows!!!  They are going well, although I question whether I will get them done being I'm slow and not always knitting when I should be. There are other things I wanted to knit as well but unlike Kandice I can't seem to be working on more than one project at a time. 

Our trip to Tennessee was the best!  We had such a great time and absolutely loved every part of it!  The cabin was unbelievable, beautiful and large.  The kids loved it and the first time Keira spotted a bear lurking around our cabin she reacted as a little girl would....she went running into the cabin screaming that there was a bear outside, which of course got everyone out on the deck checking it out and sure enough there it was looking up at us!  At the time mommy, nana and grandpa were just getting back to the cabin from the grocery store so we missed her initial response but got to enjoy the bear anyways. 

We toured Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Cade's Cove and saw lots of bears.  The guys got out fishing with no luck unfortunately but enjoyed it just the same.  We shopped at the outlet mall or should I say the girls did and the guys shopped at Pro Bass and of course enjoyed that.  They took the kiddos so that the mommies could enjoy relaxing shopping time.  Then Kandi, hubby and I all bought new cowboy boots.  Love that store...Stages West!!! Awesome array of boots for every member of the family and the lady that waited on all of us was great!  We also did the Ripleys Aquarium in Gatlinburg, which was really cool.  Everyone loved it as well.

We are planning a very large family vacation in Pigeon Forge-Gatlinburg area for August 2013!  So looking forward to that trip.

I have a few pics I will try to add here later from our trip.  Have to see if I can do it right this time!
