Well it has been quite a while...

Should we or shouldn't we? That seems to be the question! With facebook, the blogging thing has barely been on our minds, but I must admit that I kind of miss it. I guess I will give it one more try to see if I really want to start it up again or not. We shall see! Don't even know if anyone else does it anymore or not, so if not,then what is the sense of us trying to keep one up??? Give me a shout out if anyone still does it or not and that will help me make my decision! Thanks!

So sick of all this sickness!!

It seems as if the past couple of weeks have been nothing but yucky for us. First it was the stomach bug that attacked and now it is the cold, cough, sore throat, fever, pink eye bug that is here. So much for wishing for a "healthy" new year. I know that it is that time of year and we should expect to have a little bit of something, but good grief enough is enough! I am so ready for winter to be over. I want to be able to open my windows and air this bug filled house OUT! I am hoping that Mother Nature will be good to us and let some sun shine down on us and blow some warm breezes our way sooner than later! I know that simple bugs come and go and I should be thankful that they are short lived, but I am so sick and tired of everybody being sick and tired that I can not help but wish for Spring! I still have a long way to go, but I am trying to convince myself that it is just around the corner! A girl can hope right? Sorry to vent, but sometimes it just has to come out!! Hope everyone else is having that happy and healthy new year that we wished for! Things will get better I am sure of it, but my patience is wearing thin and I am ready for a break from all these stinking bugs that keep finding their way to my house! Until next time...stay healthy and enjoy the month of February:)

Our New Year has started off busy as ever...

But we would not have it any other way:) Last week we shared in the union of two pretty special people. Our neighbor Joel got married and Maddi was his flower girl. Though she was nervous, she did a wonderful job and we could not have been more proud of her. She was the only child in the wedding and she behaved as if she was one of the grown ups. That there was a shocker!! It was a busy week, but it all turned out wonderful and very beautiful. This week poses to be a little busy as well, but plenty of things to look forward to. Maddi will go ice skating for the first time on Friday night with the GEMS girls and us leaders. I can not wait to see how many times she pulls me down. I can not wait for her to try it and see how well she does or just how much she likes it. You never know with her. I am also going to get the paint for the interior of our house on Thursday, so I am a little excited about that. I am in need of a change and paint is about the easiest way to do it. The only thing is is that it is gonna be a lot of paint and a big change for us. I am going a little bolder than I would normally, but I kinda want to step out of the box and try something a little different! Guess we will have to wait and see just how it turns out. Until next time, enjoy every day like it is the last! Laugh out loud, love like you have never been hurt and touch every heart that you come in contact with! May God bless you all!

Out with the old and in with the new...

Well now that 2009 is about to depart, I am looking forward to a new year. Looking back I must say that 2009 was very good to us. We did a lot. We experienced the loss of our beloved chocolate lab Brandi, got a new yellow lab named Ellie Mae,enjoyed a summer/fall full of camping, I had the chance to go to Canada, some of Mark's family came for a visit, Maddi started kindergarten, the girls and I went to Chicago for a long weekend and so on. I could go on and on and on, but I will not bore you with any more details of the past.
We are anxiously awaiting to see what 2010 will bring. We are hoping and praying that we will be blessed with good health, good luck and much happiness. I am sure that this new year will be just as busy as the last, but we are looking forward to a new year of possibilities. We already have a few things planned, so we have something to look forward to. Just a little glimpse of what we have planned...
In January Courtney will be playing for the All-Star Band...
Easter break we are going to Ocracoke for the week...As a family!! So excited.
In August, us along with 3 other families are going to Kentucky on a houseboat for a week! That should be a blast!!
And of course some camping!! We can not wait to get out and do that again!
As you can tell, we have just a few things on our agenda for 2010, but I am sure more things will keep jumping on our calendars! We wish all of our family and friends a very Happy and Healthy New Year! Much love to you all!!

Guess you could say that we are...

Slacking once again! Man I have gotten so bad at this blogging thing. As much as I am on facebook, I do not have an excuse not to jump on here at least once a month and post an update of some kind. Sorry people:(

Things have been busy as usual here in the Rose's household. We stayed home for Thanksgiving and were blessed by having Randy, Robbie and their 3 girls come and spend 3 nights with us. We had a wonderful visit and came to realize that we missed living so close to them. The girls got along so well that you could not even tell that there were 6 of them in the same house. No drama! Woohoo:) We also realized that if they were to see each other more often, then they would be much more than just cousins, but great friends too!

We are in full swing of the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season. Always somewhere else to go and do or something else on the list of things to get. Isn't that always the case? I have a good bit of my gifts bought, but still have a ways to go. I am losing days quickly, so I must get my rear in gear and get it all done!

Well I guess that is about enough for now, so until next time....

Come and gone...

Well now that Halloween and October have come and gone, we find ourselves in November and Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping are right around the corner! Man I do not think that I am ready for any of this! As fast as fast as time is flying by, this too will pass rather quickly and I will look back and wonder where it all went. Colder weather is not something that I am totally looking forward to and this is mainly due to the fact that Maddi now in school and it is just going to be that much harder to get her up, dressed and out the door. I have a hard enough time now, so I can only imagine what it will be like when there is snow on the ground! Well I guess enough grumbling for now. Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their fall and goes on into winter with an open mind! That is something that I am definitely going to have to work on:) Until next time...stay healthy and happy!!
