The new addition

I have so much news!  Where do I start?  I have been a very bad blogger.  Then as I was looking at a lot of other blogs that I follow I noticed that I was not the only "bad blogger" this year.  Seems as though a lot of people are having a hard time keeping up this year.

So now I don't feel quite as bad.

I think we got our Internet issues resolved.  Hence the new post.

For my first and BEST news.......drum roll please!

I am a Great Aunt!

I am not just singing my own praises, my niece had her first baby.  January 9th, Liliah Vaughn White.

Aaaahhhhhh!  She's cute too!

Don't you just LOVE babies?!?!  (I borrowed these pictures from my niece.)

I love this one, looks like she's talking with Mommy.

I used to sleep this way, still do sometimes.  Hailey sleeps like this sometimes too.

I know, I know, she's so cute right?  We'll be getting to see her this weekend.  Taking a day trip over to hang out and meet the new addition.

I won't have to borrow photos then, I'll have plenty of my own.

I just came to the realization the other day that sometimes, just sometimes..........

......you just have throw your hands up and let go!

(Look, my cat even sleeps like that!  MUST be a family trait!)  Yes, she's sleeping with her eyes open, weird, another family trait, the weird part.

Until next time, hopefully sooner than later.......

So I've adjusted my work schedule to stay home a little longer so Hailey can ride the bus from our house.  It is working out wonderfully.  I get a little slower prep time in the morning and Hailey has no problems getting ready in time since she is not rushed.

She even gets out of bed easier.
Even though she is getting up at the exact same time.
What's up with that?
Totally psychological isn't it?

Anyway, now I get to watch AMAZING views like this.....

This is the sunrise off my front porch.


Enjoying the small things......

Ummmm 2012?

I CANNOT believe it has been a month since I last posted!  OK, December was seriously a blur!  On top of that we have been without Internet for about two weeks.  Count them......1.....2......WEEKS!

I have been going BANANAS!

Especially since I just bought myself a NOOK and need WIFI to use it properly. 

I love my NOOK, and I am so glad I bought it.  I have read 3 books on it already since I bought it (just before Christmas).

I am also addicted to the WORDS with friends game.  I have 4 scrabble games going already and it is TOTALLY addicting!  I do REALLY suck at scrabble though.  So I am currently loosing all of the games.  I'm not worried though, I get a little better everyday.

There are also some pretty cool interactive kids books that I can put on them for Hailey.  She loves it too.

Not that she reads Spider Man, but the option is there.

We can also watch movies on it from our Netflix account. Or I can watch all my FOX shows that I miss because our satellite dish company does not carry the FOX station (boooooooo! Hisss!).

It's a little more spendy than the Kindle Fire, but I find it worth every penny.

So I hope you all got everything you wanted for Christmas and more!  I hope you all had a fun and SAFE New Year also.


PS.  Barnes & Noble does not know I exist (with the exception of their purchasing department, technically they do not know me, just my card number).  This is NOT a paid advertisement, I just like this product and thought I would share.
