I'm Back - Finally!

Before you write me off as one of the millions of bloggers who quit every year. I've just had an incredibly busy two months and have been away from home more than I've been there. Hopefully things will slow down a bit now. One could always hope.

Here's what we've been up to:

1. Keith's 55th Birthday - Big surprise church potluck BD dinner

 2. Carla's visit - Fun Blog Friend (

3. Book Across the Bay - Local 10K Cross-Country Ski event

4. Keith and I took a week's vacation

5. Lani's 8th Grade Volleyball season

6. Amy's Cross-Country Ski team

 Donut Dash Cross-Country Ski Race in Cable, WI

7. Usual church stuff

8. St. Patrick's Day party at church

9. Easter weekend - Andrew and Rachel's visit

10. Taste of Grace - Helped plan, cook, and serve a free Community dinner

11.  Keith officiated at Andrew's best friend's wedding in LaCrosse, WI

12. Car shopping - time intensive

13. Scrapbook retreat - Fun!

14. Pinning a bazillion scrapbook layout pins on Pinterest - time black hole

15. Keith's sister's wedding in NW Iowa  - time intensive

(Rehearsal - Keith co-officiated at his sister's wedding)

16. Erica's 21st Birthday

Instead of cake, she wanted Peanut Butter Cup No Bakes - Yum!
We didn't have a "2" candle so the numbers add up to 21.
17.  Missions Conference - time intensive

18. Rearranged our bedroom - time intensive (Room Planner App)

That's our last two months in a nutshell. So, how was yours?


  1. Great to have you back. :-)

    Tell Amy, the boys want her to stop over again soon. They loved how she talked LEGO with them.

    We love your family! Sounds like you had a great two months of family time and fun.

  2. Hi Angie! How sweet that you and Carla got to visit! Your months of activity make me realize what a beautiful, full life that can happen when we are open and loving and kindhearted. When we care about people, when we have faith, that energy just spills out everywhere and makes the world a happier place for all of us. You inspire me! I'm glad you're back:)

  3. gets busy. Glad you are back at the keyboard...does this mean you've figured out your ipad? :) Talk to you soon.
