Merry Christmas!!

Hi everyone! I know I have been a bit quiet on here lately. As if the Christmas season is not busy enough, we had lots of excitement here as well... And not all good excitement!!
We were in a car accident first... We were driving along the highway while it was snowing... Traffic was slowing down ahead of us, so we did also. All of a sudden... WHAM!!!! A tractor trailor smashed into the back of us!!!!!!!!! We believe that the driver may have fallen asleep... As the roads were not slippery... But who knows! Anyway, that was the beginning of our holiday season. Next, 2 sick kids... Snow storms to cancel out church Christmas concert and Christmas Eve candle light service... Then on Sunday Dec 22, we got another big snow and ice storm... It knocked out our power and telephone!!! It was out all thru Christmas, right thru until Sunday dec 29th!! An entire week with no power!!!
So needless to say, it was a Christmas to remember for sure!  We are well set up and had water, heat and a small generator to run the fridge enough to keep from loosing anything.
But now I am back!! It will take me a bit to get back into the groove... But I'll get there. I need a bit of an attitude adjustment as well,... But that's another story! LOL!
I did want to drop by and wish you all a very merry Christmas!!!! I appreciate your comments and emails so much!  I look forward to a creative filled 2014!!
Later if the week I hope to post some of my favorite projects of 2013 ... So stay tuned!
Until then, Happy creating!
