Yes Mr. Schwarzenegger, I'm back!

I could go on and on about how bad I feel that it has taken me a few months to get back into the life of a blogger but I won't. What I will do is give you a short explanation as to why you have had to fill the "i am the luckiest" void (you have most likely been feeling) elsewhere. :)

After the haze of "computer problems" had lifted a bit I was feeling the pressure of posting all about our happenings. Well, then I let the pressure increase to the point where my stubborn self took over and said "I'm am not going to be pressured into posting, I am not, I am not, I AM NOT! (Yes I really can be this stubborn) So now, my somewhat rational side has kicked in and has decided to re-join the blogging world.

I have decided not to backtrack the past few months with words but I will post a few pictures for you, so you can see what we have been doing. (or should I say, what Emma has been doing)

The pumpkin farm

Our little angel girl has been busy, busy, busy. She is 11 months and a bit and she has so much personality and loves to talk to everyone and anyone. (well at least she thinks she can talk) When we are at the store she will be sitting in the cart and she will point or reach out to someone and kind of shout out to them until they look at her. Then she will start laughing and doing any trick she can think of to make them laugh back at her. She also thinks she can sing. At church when the choir gets up she can be heard "singing" throughout the chapel. If we go anywhere with accoustics (bathrooms, the foyar at church, the public library) she will shout ah ah ah ah!!! so that she can hear her echo. She is a very vocal little girl and Mark and I aren't sure what we are going to do when she's old enough to really talk.

Mark and I have been busily getting ready for our trip to the UK. We leave Friday and we will be back on New Years day. We are so looking forward to spending time with family and seeing sites. It will be a Christmas to remember.

I will try to keep you posted throughout our holiday.

Hope you all are having a great holiday season!

Happy Christmas!
