Here I am....

Once again I am months behind on blogging. I will quickly try to catch up.....
December was such a fun month. Christmas Break was the best since we had so many fun events and family get together. Although it was rather hectic.

Weddings:
We had two family weddings once again. This was defiantly the year of love or something. I don't think I have ever even been invited to this many weddings. So Matt and I's nephew got married to a cute gal and then the week after my sister got married to a wonderful guy as well. Let's just say those two weeks were full of family fun.

Skiing:
Since I am not carrying any babies in my belly, I thought I might as well take this opportunity to take on skiing. I have only been once my whole life, and that was not the best experience. I was in my early 20's, never been, it was snowing hard and I was thrown on a blue hill my first time down. Seriously! Basically you can imagine how a beginner would feel about these circumstances... After that awful experience Matt told me her would take me when he started teaching a Tate. That made this year the perfect year.

I did alright my first lesson and we decided to take another trip out to the slope on a day without Tate. We had so much fun. I wish I took pictures, but I am horrible at that. Basically you could see me going down the hill in all sorts of unique ways (backwards, sitting down, laying down, etc.). It may sound like I didn't do to well, but I did. We just had some funny moments of me trying to get up when I fell. I hated trying to stand up after a fall.

Projects:
During December I was also working on a super huge project! My parents had given me my old doll house and I really wanted to make it over for Addie. I got a late start so I sort of had to rush it. I am still not quite finished. I have one of the rooms with no furniture, plus would like to do something with the attic. I have some more ideas of things I would like to add later on. Hopefully I can get to that soon.

Anyways, these are pics from start to finish. My cute boy, Tate, helped me paint the furniture since I was in a time crunch. He was very excited to be involved in this project.
