Christmas 2009

Christmas was a wonderful celebration this year, made ever so enjoyable by the exuberance of little ones. They were excited about every aspect of the holiday. We taught them Christmas carols, decorated gingerbread houses, decorated our house, looked at the Christmas lights in our neighborhood, made a paper chain, shopped for Angel Tree gifts and delivered them to a family in need, and most importantly, read the Bible to remember the true meaning of Christmas. It is nice to get back to regular life, I will admit, and I feel my nesting instincts kicking into high gear as March seems right around the corner when we will meet our new little girl. Happy New Year to anyone that still checks my blog!

That question has been asked of me, and my answer is............I dunno. I do have alot of other things to do during the day besides blogging, but truth be told that I could find time if I wanted to. I think that I have become frustrated with blogging and the weird world it creates. I think that if I do continue to blog, it will just be updates on our family and pictures of the kids. I just haven't found blogging a good way to talk about anything of substance. I think that it could work on an anonymous blog, but not on our personal one. I have even stopped reading many other blogs because I end up reading the comments and they usually go like this:

blogger post: I have a question for you readers....

comment #1: I have found that for me..........

comment #2: You must not know blogger because she is the best blah blah blah

comment #3: I didn't mean to offend, just offering advice..........

comment #4: Those type of people are so..........

And so on and so forth.

I can't tell you how many times I have read this scenario but at least a dozen that I can recall.

So if I do continue to blog, which I think that I will on maybe a weekly basis, it will be geared to those people that know us and care about seeing pictures and updates of my kids. (Ellie is walking around the house right now with a baby doll giving her kisses. So cute!) For those people that know me and want my opinion on current events or anything possibly contentious, email me and ask. (No, I don't expect any of those!)

We just got home from a week in CA, so I will try the new blogging schedule soon. Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
