Happy New Year

Well it's 2012 ... that's correct, 2012, not 2011 as you might suppose from the last post over a year ago! Where in the world did 2011 go .... wherever it disappeared to it did it quickly. So off to a New Year... Not sure what I'll do with this blog since I think most everyone has switched to checking up on me with facebook ... but we'll see.

Anyway wishing you and your family, friends and even your pets a wonderful New Year!!

Christmas 2010

Gee, I can't believe it's been most of the year since I've written anything on this blog. Then again with Facebook I don't think anybody reads this anyway!

Here's just a couple pictures from our Christmas project. I'll post some stuff from our September trip to Chicago maybe later this weekend...

Shawn (in the very back); Millynne & Bob "sweater people"

The boys

Madison and her flowery ankles....

And here's the "Official Sweater People Family Portrait"

So, as you might guess, Bob & I were very busy the 2 months before Christmas!...
And now for our long 3-day New Year's weekend -- hooray!!

Extreme Makeover Home Edition

25 Feb 2010 - 4 March 2010 brought Extreme Makeover Home Edition to Mineola, TX. The Carr family was blessed to be the recipients of a new home. The episode will be the season finale so I think it will air around May 9th, but check your TV schedules from time to time to be sure you don't miss it! 

Bob & I got to volunteer for a 6 hour shift from 6am - noon on Saturday 27 Feb 2010. They had just begun pouring the concrete when we arrived and by the time we left they had 3 walls up already!  And that was just the beginning -- the changes from day to day were amazing. We then showed up on the "reveal day"  4 March 2010 where we cheered the family as they came home, screamed and yelled "Move that Bus!"  and actually got to see that bus move!   Can't wait to see the episode and see what the inside really looks like. In the meantime it's been great to be a part of such a huge community effort and makes us proud to live in East Texas!! 

Here we are at the end of the "Move that Bus!" event... now back to regular life...
