I think it's back......

my mojo!!!  I'm feeling the desire to be creative again!  and it feels good!  I've completed one layout this week already, and have another half done, with a third in the wings.  and it makes me smile!  the layouts are not elaborate, and I may only be getting in there 15 to 30 minutes at a time, but that is ok!  soooooo, I should be posting some on here soon!   yay me!  wonder if this has anything to do with Winter CHA being this past weekend?
in other news..... the cupcake turned 9 months old this past Sat, and took her first steps on Fri.  By the time we got her on Sat, she was standing up and walking 10 - 12 steps at a time before plopping down.  she will be running in a month.  thinking this may just be the exercise I need!
here are a couple of pictures from Thanksgiving of the cupcake!  I swear, I could buy 20 tutus for her, and still not have enough!  now that she can stand alone, I'm going to need one in every shade of every color.   

and that folks is about all the pictures I managed to get... because I was too busy cooking!

Ready for 2014!

Oh my goodness!  Another year has flashed by.... and in a hurry. 
I'm already planning for 2014 to be a great year!
This Little Cupcake will turn one in a few months!
I've no doubt she will be walking soon.  She stands all by herself, will take a couple steps before tumbling, and is showing of some very entertaining dance moves! Has 6 teeth already, and knows what food is!
I've picked my one little word of the year.  Focus.  It's going to be a big word this year!

I will hit the big 50 this year.  Not sure when that happened, but, I do know that I am still wearing capris, jeggings and leggings, and I'm not cutting my hair!  Matter of fact, I may put a blue streak in it next time!

This year may be the year I jump of the diving board.  I really do need to do that. hahaha I've only been saying this for what, 4 years now? I think I really only say it to give David hope that it will happen

Going to work more on my photography, because for the last 2 or 3 months, I've not been liking what I'm seeing come out of my camera.  Hmmmm, wonder if that means I should be a little less critical of what I'm snapping.

Seriously wanting  this little baby, but not sure I need it.
I plan to do lots of experimenting with cooking this year.  I'm going to learn to chop onions like a pro and flip items in the skillet just by using my wrist... AND, not get burned or cut any body parts off in the process!   Seriously though, I'm going to broaden my cooking skills! 
Mainly though, I'm going to find some kind of time to carve out for myself.  I seemed to have lost that this past year, with someone needing something from me on a pretty regular basis.  I had enough of that, and 2014, the year I turn 50, it's my year!   (and that starts next week, just as soon as I finish everything on my honey do/momma do list!)

and now, a few pictures from Christmas Eve.

she was thinking she was going to take her Santa hat off.  I was thinking she wasn't.  She won.
I really am so very proud of the daddy he is.  He is so in love with her.

                             They really are fun, and I think maybe big things are in store for them

                                    She seriously has her Aunt J wrapped around her little finger
                                                           Love her facial expressions

Now, let's make 2014 a most fabulous year!
