Happy New Year!

     Happy New Year to one and all. I have been horrible at keeping up posting to my blog and I am so sorry about that. With us building our new home pretty much every waking and sleeping moment has been consumed with it. I didn't realize when we made the decision to build a new home so many decisions would have to be made. We are currently in the phase known as framing and our builder has sent us pictures weekly of the progress, but as anyone who reads my blog knows I am not very good with my computer and pictures so I will see what I can do, I may post a picture and then again I may not. Its kind of nice that he takes a picture in the same spot so you can see what has been done. It doesn't look like much in the first picture, but then when you see the latest one you notice a diference. They have framed the basement and hopefully they will start on the main floor soon. Then we will be going up for a visit to make sure the framing was done correctly. If we didn't go up and then noticed something later it would be far harder to correct. I can't wait to go up there. They have snow right now, isnt' that exciting? I have always lived in California in the valley so snow always excites me. I know people who live in snow probably don't like it that much but I really hate the hot weather here so I will be giving up the much disliked hot weather for cold weather. Like I tell Roger, at lease with cold you can always put a coat on or a blanket but in hot weather when you get down to skin there isn't much you can do about it.
     I have once again deactivated my Facebook account, figured there wasn't any better time than the first day of the year. I have done this many times before and I always go back and reactivate it but I am really praying this time I can just leave it behind me. I did like keeping track of my kids and grand kids but there have been less pictures of the grand kids as time goes on. They are getting older so there aren't as many cute little things to post about . Jennifer and Chris have busy lives, Kaitlyn turned 10 last October and Dylan will be 13 this coming March. Our little babies (our doggies) are getting all grown up too. Molly turned 13 this past September and Mandy turned 7 in November. I am really wanting to get another puppy but with the house stuff going on I think it's best to wait until
after we move.
 Okay so I put the pictures up but they are kind of out of order.
 this picture above is the third picture our builder sent us.
 The picture above is the second picture our builder sent us.
 This picutre above is the first picture our builder sent us.

 The picture above is the most current picture with the framing in the basement. I will try and keep more current with what is going on.

     I pray everyone has a very blessed year ahead of them, I am choosing to find Joy in the journey we are currently on. I pray daily that everything goes smoothly. I have started the countdown and we have started going through lots of things here and there.  We have less than 5 months but we are praying it goes pretty quickly, though I am sure  we will wonder where the time has gone When moving day comes.
